Pristine snorkelling off Koh Samui

Pristine snorkelling
off Koh Samui

Snorkelling does not get better than this; a fabulous half-day tour to experience the best coral reefs
around the pristine island of Koh Tan, off Samui’s coast. Within 20 minutes, you will arrive
at a small deserted tropical dot that will not disappoint.

WHY THIS TOUR?

If Samui’s welcoming beaches and swaying palm trees are not tropical enough for you or perhaps you need a break to capture some of the more idyllic spots. With certainty, Koh Tan should hit top marks for snorkelling and seeing now a sustainable concept protects the eco-system on this uninhabited island.

Under our definition of ‘get away from it all and play Robinson Crusoe for the day’, this half-day trip is yet another clear example that the islands surrounding Koh Samui are definitely worth a visit. In need for some times to relax, enjoy the sun and admire the underwater beauty in the Gulf of Thailand? Koh Tan welcomes you with open arms!

TRAIL ITINERARY

Pristine snorkelling off Koh Samui

13:45 - 17:45

A short boat ride from Koh Samui, one finds Koh Tan (Coral Island), a classic desert island location. The adventure starts with a short drive to Thong-Krut Bay where we board a long-tailed boat for the 20-minute journey to this adjoining island situated off the southern tip of Samui.

For those keen to do more than soak up the sun rays, the southern end of the beach has a fantastic snorkelling spot with an abundance of coral that is home to a plethora of colourful tropical marine creatures. Legend has it that the island is bewitched and, as a result of the ancient spell cast on it, no dogs can live here!

The west side of the island has a mangrove forest with a sturdy boardwalk so visitors can see how the mangroves act as a haven for land and sea creatures without damaging the sensitive eco-system. The island is traffic-free and without electricity, so total solitude is almost guaranteed. Although less than half-an-hour from Samui, Koh Tan is a world away from its more sizable neighbour. There is plenty of free time for snorkelling, swimming or just relaxing in the sun.

We’ll sail back to Samui where we will arrive around 5.30 pm before we bring you back in all comfort to your home, far away from home on Koh Samui.
