Insider Tips

Insider Tips:

  • It takes slightly longer to get Koh Tao on a big boat vs a speedboat, but it is recommended as it is more spacious and comfortable for a long boat ride
  • A day on the water means spending a lot of time in the sun so don't forget sunscreen, a hat and a t-shirt to protect your back if you'll be doing a lot of snorkelin

    It was really great of our kids first time snorkeling experience in Samui. We all enjoy this trip so much, such a beautiful paradise under the sea.
  • Wing yan Vivian 5 Jul 2018
    Weather was not very nice, no clear blue skies in the afternoon when it was free time to roam around on Koh Nanyuen, it would have been perfect if it wasn’t for the weather. Snorkelling in Koh Tao was for the beautiful coral reefs and Koh Nanyuen for the exotic fish. Kids loved the fish, very shallow water at Koh Nanyuen so it was easier the manage although the beach is very coarse. Catamaran journey would definitely get you sea sick if you are a seasick-prone person. Speedboat would have been worse but the lovely underwater views were worth it.

    nice tour guide and great experience. recommended to join.

    Tour operator was in fact Lomprayah nd the package rates on Klook was much cheaper too. Pickup service as slightly delayed perhaps due to the previous passengers being late. Package was inclusive of VIP seats on board the catamaran. Small refreshments available at check in counter before boarding. Buffet lunch was served at a restaurant on Koh Nangyuan. Overcrowded and limited food options. Otherwise tour was well planned. The views around both islands were totally worth it. Highly recommended

    Well organized tour with everything included. Tour guides were very attentive and safety always made a priority.
  • MAN NING 27 May 2017
    Thank you for the nice trip, but the board is very uncomfortable

    Something that you cannot miss while visiting Koh Samui! Easy and convenient booking through Klook. Door to door pick up service is provided however it would be better for the driver to direct us to the gathering point instead just dropping us at the car park and went away.

    Beaches are stunning, snorkeling is wicked and the view from the top of the mountain is amazing. Favourite spot in Thailand.

    We first came to Koh Samui and participated in the local tour for the first time. Because of the relationship between the group and the group, no one has led, went to the dock, completely ignorant of the anecdote, and lined up when people lined up. There is no travel profile. Due to the bad weather, only the big ship went out to sea. We were afraid that seasickness would stay in Nanyuan Island and go to Koh Tao for snorkeling. In the morning, due to the tide retreat, the water is very shallow, and there are many fishes in the snorkeling. When the water falls, the piles of fish swim over and feel wrong. After lunch, I dive again. Because the tide is rising, the water is deeper than in the morning, but there are still many fish, not bad. Because the island can not wear diving shoes, there are many corals on the bottom of the water, it is easy to scratch the feet; in the afternoon, many group friends (domestic aunts) are wearing diving shoes directly... Chinese food is better than imagined. Returning around 2:30 in the afternoon, the return trip has to be transferred once and the island is stopped. The instructions are not too clear and chaotic, I do not know when to disembark. Overall, Nangyuan Island is well worth going. The arrangement on the itinerary needs to be strengthened.

    First of all, you must send a letter by yourself to ask exactly when to go to the hotel. Klook did not take the initiative to inform and remind you. Second, the original letter said that the pick-up time was 8:30, but the driver came to pick it up at 6:50, also said he could not wait, leading us to participate! It also becomes that we have to send a letter to the local travel agency to request a rescheduling and give the right time! Third, the snorkeling place is very beautiful, Koh Tao is really suitable for snorkeling. 4. The tour guide did not take the initiative to inform the return trip which boat was. Because the boat had other Korean group tourists, the tour guide had always said that Korean did not speak in English again. As a result, individual travelers such as ours have been neglected. 5. Koh Tao is very good with the South Rim Island, but it will no longer buy klook's itinerary, and it will be even better if you choose to use a small boat service.
