    Stunning Vistas ........blew my mind !!
    The stunning scenery is exactly as seen in all the brochures and media !! Mountains rising from the sea , aquamarine color water , spectacular viewpoints and an unforgettable speed boat ride !! We had a semi private Speed Boat ( about 8 other people only ) so we could do a lot of things easily and with more comfort. Snorkeling and kayaking stops in beautiful coves .......or you can just relax on the beach / coves etc Emerald Lake , Lunch and an exhilarating speed boat ride all added to the best day tour from Samui !!

    Memories of a lifetime
    This was one of the highlights of our stay in Koh Samui. We booked a speed boat tour, with RS Ruangsri Samui Speed Boat Tour, through our hotel. It was easy, we were picked up around 7am. Drive around Samui picking up other people. Had breakfast and a briefing around 8.30 and by about 9am we were on the boat and on our way. The boat takes about an hour perhaps. It was quite busy but not a problem. When you arrive at the park you can see that the journey was worth it. The snorkelling spot was OK. Nice and deep but we didn’t see many fish. It was however quite chaotic getting off the boat and into the water with my 11 year old daughter but it was worth it. We stopped at a couple of places, it was all stunning, breathtaking. Eventually we stopped off for lunch which was average rice and chicken but the setting was amazing. The point where you can go up the viewpoint we decided not to bother as it was extremely hot, even in August and instead we spent well over an hour just floating around in the blissful settings. The water is crystal clear and as warm as a bath. The backdrop of icon and inspiring. We too a LOT of selfies. We are pleased we stayed in the water it felt extremely special to us. We then went kayaking, which to be honest wasn’t needed. The tour over ran by about an hour. My daughter fell fast asleep on the boat back as did many other people. At the end of the day there was clapping for the crew etc. it was a really special and worthwhile trip. It costs about 2,000 baht each. So on the cheaper side. It was a bit chaotic at times but the memories were for a lifetime. Highly recommended. Check our YouTube videos (IvysDadd) where we do a detailed Vlog.

    A great day out
    A well organized day out on the Red Dragon. The crew were fantastic, very polite and obliging. Excellent service, plenty of food, drinks and organized activities. I think a personal favorite was the kayaking, followed closely by the snorkeling. The weather was kind to us, with sunshine and light winds which made the day out even better.

    Good option to visit the national marine park
    Took a sail boat tour out to the marine park for some kayaking and snorkelling. The weather during our kayaking took a turn for the worse as the wind picked up and the rain came in to the extent that a couple of kayaks capsized. Was a bit of a drama and it all added to the fun, albeit not on the tour itinerary! The snorkelling was a bit underwhelming with poor visibility and therefore little to see which was a shame. We had higher expectations for this but unfortunately the weather ultimately impacted the tour. Crew were very good and the breakfast and lunch provided tasty. Unlimited chilled water and soft drinks were available as well as beer to buy.

We visited the Ang Thong National Park on Jan 2nd, we only organised it the day before: I called someone from a shop I had seen in the Fisherman's Market, she collected the cash (Bht2,000 per person) and sent me by WhatsApp a hand written receipt with the instruction to be at the agency the next day at 8:30am. People are usually picked but we stay at a villa difficult to find and we were happy driving ourselves.
The day was everything it said on the tin: snorkelling 45mns), kayaking (20 mns), walking up to the green lagoon (45 mns), a hearty and tasty lunch (45 mns), free time at a beach with the option to walk to the top of the hill for the view (60 mns).
BUT wherever we went there were other speed boats (another six at the snorkelling point), and we felt rushed and treated like sheep corralled from one place to another.
The experience would have been very different if it had been less crowded.

I highly recommend the day trip via boat. We used Oceana Samui Charters (booked from the Ritz-Carlton Koh Samui) and they were excellent. It took 45 minutes or so to get to the national park area from Koh Samui. We snorkeled along a coral reef with lots of fish, and spent some time at a nearby beach. At lunch at a little fishing village and saw some Great Hornbills there. Also hiked up to see the Emerald Lake. It's worth the climb, but just know that the stairs are very steep and it takes about 20 minutes to go up.

Really worth visiting. Beautiful places and amazing views. But couple of things to make the trip best possible: 1. weather, if waves are too big it's not possible to visit all places and boat trip can be difficult, 2. good shoes, viewpoints are nice, but the way up might be hard, especially if wearing only flipflops, 3. Operating company, routes, included activities and services vary between companies.

Not sure which company we used, but it started with collection at hotel, speedboat to first island where we snorkelled for around 30 minutes, back in boat to a different area and a further 20 minutes snorkelling in a cave, then too an island where we kayaked, before walking up a very dangerous trail, for a view point which was worth a decent photo or two; don't try climbing with flip flops on. We then back in boat to a different island for lunch which was good. Not sure when, we also was taken to a lagoon which required a steep stair walk to access. Finally, to the last island for an hour relaxing on the beach (a few monkeys were walking around here). Then back to Samui. A packed day made good by the guides and decent paced speed boat.

As for the national park, so much to see and the guides point out many interesting aspects along the way.

This iconic natural park is accessed by boat of which there are numerous options and price points. It's a wonderful albeit a long day's outing. Those who enjoy snorkeling will find Ang Thong a highlight of their time in Thailand. There are numerous different promotional broucutes available on the island and Google will also assist you with copious information and options.

Took a day trip with some friends to this national park during covid. We spent the entire day swimming, cruising around the fabulous islands, snorkeling, drinking beer and enjoying the completely desolate golden beaches.

We did not see a single other visitor the entire day which really added to the beauty of this spot. Such a great day and can be pretty cheap too!

Took the speed boat Get your Guide day trip. Boat was very bumpy esp on way back. Many people got seasick even after taking Dramamine since the waves were high and we were flying up and down like a roller coaster for an hour each way. Life jackets were on top of boat so not helpful if we needed them. Beautiful hike but need good shoes. Fun day other than boat! Think seriously if you can handle speed boat!

I travel in December, which is a rainy season and the beach in our hotel in Koh Samui was full of algae. This trip to Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park was the best part of my trip. The beach was clean and not too crowded. Kayaking was my favorite thing to do!

What an amazing experience at Mu Ko Ang Tong national park. Thank you to the Czech man who was so insightful gave us great information about the fish located in Koh Samui. The wonderful staff who were so kind and had the most yummy food! The crispy chicken, fried rice, spring rolls! Amazing views, we loved the snorkelling. Thank you for such an amazing service on our honeymoon ❤️🫶🏻
