About
As you may have seen, there are many Angthong Marine tours on offer from Koh Samui but The Dive Academy provide the ultimate, value for money, VIP  Tour on one of our purpose built speedboats "Midnight Blue". Accompanied by at least two of our PADI Professionals to guide you with a maximum ratio of 6 guests to one instructor. Our Marine Park tour has a maximum of 12 guests! There are many cheaper trips around where you join with 30-35 other guests but we believe our tour is worth the slightly higher price for the quality service provided and the limited numbers of customers on the boat!

We had a wonderful day in Ang Thong. The transfer and pick-up worked smoothly, our guide was super nice, so you felt totally comfortable at all times. The boat trip (on a very well maintained Super Speed Boat) was great (do not forget to put on sun screen lotion!), we were supplied with drinks. First stop was the lagoon, which took a bit of hike to get to. Our guide told us things about Ang Thong and the fish and wildlife. We saw small stingrays. The second stop was kayaking. Through Covid we were really the only ones in the whole national park, which was of course very special. After kayaking, a perfect Thai lunch was prepared for us. Super tasty. After that we could relax a bit until we went to the last stop, snorkeling. This was great! Our guide was always near us and spotted fish for us. Also here we could see Stingrays and a puffer fish! After the day we were taken back to our hotel. I would recommend it to everyone to do the trip with Dive Academy! It was really great and we had an awesome day! Thanks again!! :)

What a brilliant day. The boat and crew are superb and instructors are really nice.
We visited a couple of the islands, saw the sights, kayaked and snorkelled.
Lunch was lovely and all equipment excellent.
We were well looked after.

While we did not get to do the trip because of bad weather, I gave them a four star for their outstanding customer service. They contacted us the night before our trip to inform us that due to the weather they had to cancel our trip. They were willing to book us on another day but our plans did not allow it. They gave us a full refund with no questions. Would recommend this company based on that experience we had with them.

Hi Seb, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review even though we didn't manage to complete your tour. The weather has been very frustrating this last month which has resulted in a few cancelled trips unfortunately. Whilst we recognise its very disappointing when you're on holiday, safety and customer service are our priority. Thanks again, The Dive Academy

We did the tour as a family and my son and husband did the SCUBA experience. The experiences were great, staff friendly and organising was also efficient as did from home before went on holiday. Never felt unsafe and felt like you were looked after. If in Koh Samui highly recommend The Dive Academy. Thank-you

We took our six children for the day and we all loved it. This is a really professional outfit, very safe and with small numbers. A modern, speedy boat that is obviously well maintained. Angthong is beautiful and we kayaked, snorkelled and swam whilst visiting some of the sights. The staff were fabulous and they made the day an exciting one. Hugely recommended.

We really struggled to find a tour that we liked for a visit to Anthong National Park. Found a recommendation for Dive Academy and contacted them. Spoke to someone (sorry can’t remember your name), who was English and was very helpful and understanding of what we were looking for. Booked direct and went the next day.

We were picked up at our villa and brought to a central office to complete paperwork. We then walked the short distance to the beach and boarded a speed boat. We had two English speaking guides/divers on board and were joined by another family for the trip. Speed boat had a small toilet on board and there was free water on a cool box available.

We then began the exhilarating journey to Anthong. We sat up front on the boat and the sights were amazing.

We then arrived at the first stop to visit the emerald lake. It is a steep climb up steps/ladders to be view point. You really need to be fit to do this part. Our guide came with us and pointed out the sights and names some of the fish we saw. It was not busy when we did this part of the trip and were glad as wouldn’t have wanted to have done the stairs once other tour groups arrived.

Our next stop was to a beautiful beach to go kayaking. Again our guide came with us and showed and took us towards some caves.

We returned to the beach and enjoyed - delicious lunch. Soft drinks and water was provided.

We then boarded the boat again before our final stop to go snorkelling. We were provided with all the equipment needed and our guides took us to an incredible spot to see the fishes among coral. We all really enjoyed this experience.

Back on the boat again for the fast trip back to koh samui.

Would highly recommend dive academy for a high quality professional tour.

Dive Academy guides are all passionate about conserving the oceans and quality of the reefs; and know the best places to go.

Only 12-14 of us in a fast speed boat meant we arrived at the stunning Emerald Lake before any other boats and enjoyed it all to ourselves, leaving just as the larger boats started arriving and crowding out the island.

We were ahead of the crowds again for kayaking, visiting a more deserted and beautiful island where we enjoyed a beautifully cooked Thai lunch - no queues for getting our food like another boat party and our food looked much nicer!).

Then the piece de resistance - the snorkelling location. Wow! Probably the best snorkelling experience we’ve ever enjoyed (and we’ve been fortunate to snorkel in many beautiful places around the world!). Claire and the team selected a quiet location which we had all to ourselves, snorkelling in and around caves where we were literally with thousands of fish. Lots of feeding schools of butterfly fish, rabbit fish, parrot fish as well as barracuda, puffer fish and many other varieties. We even saw two octopus fighting. A rare and special experience. Highly highly recommended. Thank you Dive Academy.

We did the VIP Marine Park tour and it was everything we hoped it would be. The boat was clean and nice, the stops were well-planned and gave us some excellent photo opportunities. I’m not super comfortable in the water, but I wasn’t pressured to snorkel, which was really nice and different from some tours! Emerald lake is gorgeous, a must-see for Koh Samui visitors! Overall would highly recommend this tour and the Dive Academy.

This is a really well organised day trip, in a smaller group than others you will see.
The boat is first class and the crew are extremely helpful.
The itinerary is well thought out with a visit to the emerald lake, lots of steep steps but worth it. Then kayaking and finally snorkelling to see the fabulous marine life.
The tour leader was excellent and enthusiastic.
Overall, this is a well delivered and safe experience.

From the very start we had a good feeling that we would be 100% in safe hands with our very chilled and professional dive master Sophie (of the French kind). The guys at the boat and the organising team were total professionals and made everything seamless and enjoyable.
The Emerald lake is one monster of a climb up some very intimidating steps but the view from the top and down at the lake itself were spectacular.
I didn’t want to Kayak but my friend did and I’m glad she did, that too was a real chance to connect with the present.
Finally the snorkelling itself.... The location was spectacular!!!, I free dived down about 7 to 8m to check out some Electric Blue Sea Anenomies (sp?) the size of basketballs, up close watching them ‘breathe’ in the sea currents with their tentacles swaying and the tiny Angel fish swimming inside them was Mind Blowing!... I’ve never seen a colour that vibrant and bright... 8m down!!, then coming up, gliding through the sediment reflecting the light as it got brighter and brighter... Wow... truly spectacular.
Watching Sea Urchins the size of beach balls ‘walk’ across rocks, a crab fighting with a small fish over a piece of a decaying carcass that was covered in Sea Urchins.
One very full day.
Merci Beaucoup Sophie.
