Southern Samui Cruise & Snorkel
|Tour Time||9:30am to 3:30pm|
|Detailed Program||The day starts with a transfer to Samui’s inner river jetty where you’ll board a traditional Thai yacht. These trendy cruising yachts were originally designed to entertain the rich and famous, but have been now customised with bean bag chairs, loungers, a dining area and even an onboard jacuzzi. Once aboard the crew will explain all about the boat’s facilities and the exciting day ahead.
As you cruise south on the Gulf of Thailand’s tranquil waters, the crew will point out local Thais harvesting bird’s nests from the Samui’s Five Islands. Called ‘white gold’ by the locals, bird’s nest is popular in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic to strengthen the immune system, stimulate circulation and improve digestion.
You’ll arrive at Koh Tean, an undeveloped island and lovely departure from the hustle of Samui’s main beaches. You’ll have a chance to explore the island’s underwater world with a guided snorkel or you can just kick back and lounge on the sundeck.
A freshly prepared Thai-fusion lunch will be served onboard as you cruise amongst the acripleago’s 42 islands.
On arrival in Koh Rap you’ll take either a tender or have the opportunity to kayak to the island. Once on land you can feed the resident deers, relax on the beach or grab a cocktail from the island’s bar.
Afterward a brilliant day cruising Samui’s southern islands you’ll cruise back to the jetty where you’ll be transferred back to the hotel.

Special thanks to the crew as this was the best trip I did in Thailand.
Loved the boat, the crew and the food was some of the best I had while on a trip. The second island we visited had an incredible beach.
Everything was tip top. Great trip, but if you’ve been snorkelling in Maldives or Indo then it’ll be a bit of a let down.
