Enjoy a leisurely day, cruising the vibrant blue waters of Koh Samui and its nearby islands on this full-day Boat Tour. Our traditional styled boat will ferry you between some of the most beautiful and scenic coastal attractions on Koh Samui, Koh Tan and Koh Mudsum, whilst allowing you to sit back and relax with a cold drink on the shaded decks.
Our first stop will be the 12 meter high golden Buddha Statue that presides over the small rocky island of Koh Phan. A pose known to represent purity, enlightenment and steadfastness, the Big Buddha sits in the Mara posture and can be seen as you approach Koh Samui by both air and sea. Wander around the temple grounds, known to locals as Wat Phra Yai, and marvel at the intricately decorated statues and temple buildings, or admire the sweeping views of the bay below.
One of the more popular stops on our tour is a visit to the Grandfather (Hin Ta) and Grandmother (Hin Yai) rocks near the settlement of Lamai. Resembling both the male and female genitalia, these rocks amuse and intrigue visitors. Legend tells a tale of an old couple lost at sea on their way to find their son a wife. Upon their death, the couple turned into the rocks as proof of their intentions. Whether you believe the local legend or not, this is one impressive rock formation, whose image you will find emblazoned on everything from t-shirts to post-cards in the surrounding tourist stalls.
The small coral island of Koh Tan is our next stop, where you will have the opportunity to snorkel through cool waters in search of brightly colored tropical fish and corals, or just relax on the powdery white beaches. Also known as ‘Green Peace Island, this tiny island has only one village, no cars, and feels almost like stepping into another world. You can reach the village after a small trek, where you will find a 7 meter whale skeleton on display. Afterwards, you can make your way back to the beach where you will enjoy a traditional Thai Buffet lunch.
Our final stop will see you visit the nearby island of Koh Mudsum, also known as “Swallows Nest Island”. Known for its long, white sandy beach, you will find that it is also a beautiful place to snorkel. A myriad of hard corals can be found just below the surface of this shallow bay, which makes it a favorite for snorkel enthusiasts and novices alike.
