Full description

Begin with hotel pickup in Samui between 8:30 AM-9:15 AM. Transfer to Koh Samui's inner river jetty and board the luxury dragon yacht departing towards the Five Islands with its spacious sun deck, onboard Jacuzzi, and comfortable indoor lounge. 

Marvel at the brilliant ocean view around you including caves, beaches, and bamboo dwellings hanging off limestone cliffs. A rare phenomenon takes place on the Five Islands: the harvesting of bird nests, or as the locals call it, “White Gold”. 

Journey to a snorkeling site at Koh Taen and explore the tropical reef. Opt to explore the site from the safety of a floating lounge that moves along the snorkeling site. Alternatively, feel free to sunbathe or relax in the Jacuzzi aboard the yacht. 

Afterward, enjoy a freshly prepared buffet lunch made by the yacht's chef while you head back. Take in the spectacular views of the island coastlines. Savor fresh fruits and drinks as you admire the surroundings. 

Choose between a dingy or kayak to the shore of Koh Rap. Go snorkeling, feed the deer, relax on the secluded beach, or have a drink at the bar. Around 3:15 PM, arrive back at the Koh Samui jetty before you transfer back to your accommodation.

We personally found the tour to Angthong National Park more worth seeing and better for snorkeling. But there was still a lot of beautiful scenery to see here. The yacht was very nice and the food from the buffet was just delicious! Unfortunately, the jacuzzi was only filled with very little water.

Very nice day out. The guides, service, food and boat were all great. We enjoyed the views and the islands visited. However, the snorkeling is barely worth it, such low visibility and not really any coral or much to see. All in all though, it was certainly worth the money and we would recommend for anyone wanting to enjoy a day out on the sea.

A superb moment on the boat, the landscapes are breathtaking. The boat crew is very nice, the meal was delicious and the boat is just beautiful. Be careful to be ready before the announced time, we had to be picked up at 9 a.m. but the driver was there at 8:35 a.m. (nothing serious but a little bit of stress at the time)
