Tour description

Tours by a large comfortable catamaran are ideal for those who are just beginning to learn the basics of diving and want to try diving in order to get a certificate later. Ideal for families or groups where not everyone wants to dive, but just snorkelling. Ideal for families with children. We offer two tours – to Koh Tao and a unique (only one of its kind) combined tour – to Koh Tao and the marine national park Angthong. High-speed catamaran – very convenient for traveling for long distances, as well as snorkeling and diving from its board.

Koh Tao

2 dives at a quiet and easy dive and snorkeling sites, sheltered from wind and waves.

During an hour and a half journey on a comfortable catamaran, divers will meet their scuba diving instructor for briefing and snorkelers will relax and enjoy wonderful sea views.

Long dives and relaxed snorkeling in quiet bays sheltered from strong currents are typical for this tour. Popular dive and snorkeling sites are Japanese Gardens, Mango Bay, Hin Wong Bay, Lighthouse Bay or Ao Leuk. From the surface it’s usually easy to see the bottom so descents become an easy thing. The diving on this tour takes place at depths of 12 to 18 meters. If you’re at the beginning of you diving career or if you haven’t been diving for a long while, then this is the best tour to start with. Another advantage of this tour is that along with diving also snorkeling, discover scuba diving and diving courses take place. Koh Tao itself is the ‘pearl’ of the Gulf of Thailand in terms of reef life. Stingrays, seahorses, sea snakes, moray eels, barracudas, nudibranchs, groupers, turtles and a seemingly infinite number of interesting reef fishes are inhabiting these reefs.

Therefore, this tour is perfect for snorkelers, diving students, beginners, discover scuba divers, as well as for experienced divers. A wide range of different dive sites with beautiful, colorful reefs and a large number of lovely fishes and reef creatures make Koh Tao the top diving area in the Gulf of Thailand.

Tour runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

  • 08:00 am – Departure from Ko Samui
  • 10.00 am – First dive or snorkelling
  • 11.00 am – Surface interval and lunch

Angthong & Koh Tao

Two destinations in one tour

Sightseeing and one dive at the world famous Angthong Marine National Park. After that another dive at the reefs of Koh Tao / Koh Nang Yuan. This is an island-, diving- and snorkeling-tour like you won’t find any other to compare with on Koh Samui.

In the morning – after a journey of about 60 minutes – the catamaran will arrive right in the center of the marine park. Then you will sali between the park’s spectacular limestone cliffs. The target is the northernmost island of the marine park: Koh Yippun.

This island is surrounded by nutritious waters with big variety of marine creatures, that is why Koh Yippon is a treasure box for all those snorkellers or divers who like to watch out for “macro” – nudibranchs, crustaceans and several critters.

Around 10 am you will leave the marine park and head off to Koh Tao after about one hour. Here you will have lunch break. The second snorkeling or dive will be at some of Koh Nang Yuan’s attractive dive sites: Japanese Garden, Twin Peaks, Green Rock, No Name or Red Rock.

This program runs on Sundays.

  • 08:00 am – Departure from Koh Samui

On all three dive sites, there are large schools of yellowtail and chevron barracudas, batfish, queen fish, mackerels, jacks, trevally and one spotted snapper and fusiliers, these dive sites are what diving is all about. An underwater photographers dream, being able to explore and discover new and wonderful marine life with visibility sometimes reaching up to 30m with little to no currents. Large marbled groupers can also be found swimming around the dive sites or blending into the soft and hard corals and giant barracudas can be spotted hanging about on the out skirts of the dive sites. At Sail Rock, you can explore and swim through the natural underwater vertical chimney and maybe discover its secret pinnacle too. If you’re lucky enough the majestic and graceful whale shark can be seen at these dive sites.

Blue spotted rays and a large variety of nudibranchs can also be discovered at these sites. The “friendly” titan or yellow margin trigger fish can also be found on these dive sites in Koh Tao which always make for great holiday memories!

Sail Rock sits 15m above and 35m below the surface with large granite boulders creating deep crevices that are hiding a variety of tiny cleaner shrimp and shallower points that are covered with anemones and seeming with small damsel fishes.
