Have not done both but we did the Red Baron marine park in June and it was fantastic!

If you were after snorkelling mostly though this is not the trip to do. It is best for stunning scenery and a really chilled out day. Great music, food and staff were outstanding. The boat is an absolute beauty!

We wanted to go back and do the sunset cruise but ran out of days that coincided with their trip.

We will be doing the sunset and day cruise with them next year.

You do get a couple of snorkelling opportunities but the bigger boats such as the two you mention cannot get to the best spots in the marine park. It wasn't great when we went in. Maybe the day cruise around the island and to other small islands or Koh Phangan brunch cruise might be better suited than the trip we did. We just love the national park for it's beauty so went with that. Good luck.

thursdays only scheduled trip to the marine park

chantara is smaller boat

but still a nice day out

either way you will have a great day

We did the Red Baron sunset cruise a few weeks ago and it was amazing. The boat is gorgeous, there were 15 pax at the most and it was really chilled out. When we visit again we will do a longer trip with them for sure.

We paid when we got there but the didn't finalise the trip until we were in Samui. I'm sure it will be fine. It's not the cheapest but it is worth it for an amazing time. Which trip did you go for?
