Boat Tour Plan:
While on the boating tour, there will be a stop at one of Koh Samui’s quiet and serene islands for a traditional Thai lunch. You can sit back and relax on the boat as the expert crew guides you and shows you the beautiful islands. The tour is highly refreshing with the cool sea breeze in your hair, the sounds of sea and gentles waves in your ears, and the warmth of the sun on your skin.
The tour begins when you are picked from your hotel and taken to the harbor near the Big Buddha. From there you will board a boat, and then sit back and relax as the boat sets sail. You will get to see some amazing sights including the grandfather and grandmothers rocks, locally known as Hin Ta and Hin Yai, on the Lamai beach. These stunning rock formations are said to have fertility powers.
The temple of Big Buddha, also known as Wat Phra Yai, can easily be seen from many directions and angles from the sea as the boat cruises around Koh Samui. The other points of interest include Koh Tan (Green Peace island), coral reefs, the warm sea, and the deserted beach. You will have time to rest, relax and enjoy on the beach.
If you don’t have the gear for snorkeling, the tour guide will have it for you already on the boat. You will also be given life jackets, if needed, or if you want them to feel safer.
For lunch, your guide will pick a quiet island for you where you can enjoy your scrumptious buffet; the buffet includes Thai dishes and, perhaps, a cocktail or two that you can enjoy on the beach.
Then you will head to Koh Mudsum (Swallows Nest) island. This is a beautiful deserted island where you can find fresh corals, white sand, and clear water. The tour winds up with a trip across the five islands of Baan Taling Ngam, after

- Their speed means they can visit dive sites further away
- Speedboats are smaller vessels, so they can moor up closer to dive sites and visit some dive sites that larger boats can’t
- A bit more exciting than a slow boat!
- Slow boats are big boats, which have more space to move around and they’re more stable in the water.
- They also typically have more divers on board making for a good atmosphere where everyone has 1 thing in common.
- Big boats tend to use less gasoline, so the tour prices are typically cheaper.
- Generally as there’s more space, tea, coffee, and snacks are provided and there are better facilities onboard such as a wash tank, shower, and proper sized toilet.
