We were looking for a small group tour to Angthong National Marine Park, to include snorkeling & kayaking.. our hotel's first choice was fully booked then they remembered there was a new company: Happy Samui. we were hesitant at first as there weren't many reviews but we decided to try it - and boy are we glad we signed up!
The tour started at 9:00 and was for a max 16 people but our group was only 7 which was great (+our group was super fun!). our shuttle arrived on time and we were on our way to the speed boat.. a beautiful (~1 hour) boat ride later we arrived to our snorkeling spot.. the equipment they provided was great, and that day the water was clear, still, and with LOTS of fish.
The great thing about the small group tours is they have the flexibility to change their schedule.. our guide Khing knew where the larger boats were off to so we changed our itinerary to give us a bit more privacy... we then went to kayak the "caves" which was super cool! after the quick kayaking exploration we were off to climb/explore the emerald lagoon.. timing was perfect for this! all the large groups were finishing and we had the place to ourselves..
lastly we went for lunch at a lovely restaurant, and then sadly on our way back to the mainland..
Khing and his crew were so amazing & our day would not have been as good without them. i would highly recommend Happy Samui if you are looking for a memorable journey in Koh Samui.
