Join us on this speedboat tour to one of the most beautiful national parks of Thailand: Angthong Marine Park! Even if you have spent some time in Thailand and enjoyed its beautiful nature, this place has something special. It’s just a 1 hour speedboat ride away from Koh Samui and completely remote. Angthong Marine Park (which translates as ‘golden bowl’) is composed of lime stone mountains with a lot of lush greenery. In the middle you’ll find the bright green Emerald Lake. Did you know this is location was feautured in Leonardo di Caprio’s The Beach?

The highlights of the speedboat tour to Angthong Marine Park are the viewpoint at Koh Wua Ta Lap, snorkeling around the pristine and crystal clear waters of Ang Thong, a delicious Thai buffet lunch and of course the Emerald Lake. If you’re up for it, you can also go kayaking (no extra charge) around the mangroves or relax on one of the powdery beaches.

We’ll meet at your hotel reception or villa between 07:30 and 08:30, depending on your location. Our driver will pick you up in an air conditioned minivan. From there we head to the pier in the north of Koh Samui where the Angthong Marine Park tour starts

We arrive at the pier where you can enjoy a light breakfast snack and coffee, tea or water.

We board the speedboat with a maximum of 35 persons and set course west for our Angthong Marine Park tour. The boat has a large sun shade so you can enjoy the views from the shadow. It’s also possible to sit up front in the sun if you wish. The trip to Angthong Marine Park takes around 1 hour.

We arrive at Koh Wau for a snorkeling experience (mask & snorkel included). Enjoy the colourful fish on the reef. Don’t feel like snorkeling? Head over to the beach, relax and enjoy the surroundings.

After a short hike on Koh Wau we arrive at the Emerald Lake (Thalay Nai). This salt water lake is one of the highlights of the tour as it is bright green and surrounded by limestone cliffs. If you don’t want to hike up , you can also stay on the beach to enjoy snorkeling or go kayaking in the mangroves around the island (included in the price).

We board the speedboat for a very short ride to Koh Wua Ta Lap (also called Sleeping Cow island). Here you can hike up to the viewpoint, from where you will have an amazing view over the 42 islands. Be sure to bring a camera as the views are stunning! Next we’ll head down to the beach for a delicious Thai style buffet lunch. After lunch you can keep enjoying the islands by snorkeling, swimming, kayaking or just chilling down on the beach.

At 15:00 it’s time to leave this beautiful place. Our speedboat takes us back to Koh Samui in about an hour. Enjoy the views, the blue waters. If you’re really lucky you might spot one of the whales or dolphins that inhabit these waters!

We arrive back at the pier in the north of Koh Samui. Our air conditioned minivans are awaiting you for the return transfer to your hotel or villa. The Angthong Marine Park tour ends here. You should be back home no later than 17:00.



For lunch during the Angthong Marine Park tour you can expect a delicious Thai style buffet. You’ll have several (halal) choices like a curry, Pad Thai, stir fried, chicken & eggs and a dessert. The food is halal. If you have any specific food allergies, please let us know prior to booking this tour.

The breakfast isn’t too extensive, it’s smart to have a decent breakfast at your hotel or villa prior to the pickup. On the pier you’ll find coffee, tea and water and a small selection of snacks to get your day started.

The best time to visit Angthong Marine Park is just after the rainy season between February and March. The temperatures are pleasant: blue skies and calm waters (apart from a rare weather disruption). The months of april and may are sunny and hot, the summer is a bit cooler. An Angthong Marine park tour is not possible during most of the rainy season, between 1 november and 15 december as the park is closed during that time.

The viewpoint of Angthong Marine park can be reached after a quite intensive climb up. The road up can be challenging to small children and elderly persons. Please make sure to wear sensible footwear and hold on the available tight ropes at all times. The climb up takes about 15 minutes and is totally worth it: the views from the top are stunning!

You can cancel your booking for free up until 24 hours in advance of the tour start date, no questions asked. We’ll refund you the deposit or you can choose to use it as an advance to a different booking or tour.

    Amazing 👏 Trip to Emerald pool & hot water spring, Krabi

    I did my booking online and the coordinator Kamonwun ka was very polite and extremely patient with me throughout my booking and answering all my questions.
    I went to the Emerald pool & hot water springs tour and it was a great experience.
    Pick up was on time. The guide was also very good and always had a smiling face.
    Spectacular services arranged by Koh Tour.

    We had a lovely day on the water on the only (!) sunny day during our holiday in november 2023. The islands were quiet and even though it’s rainy season the snorkeling was fantastic. I cannot imagine what it’s like during summertime. Must be even more beautiful! The trip itself was well organized. Make sure to climb up to the viewpoint as well, that’s where the famous 42 islands photos can be taken.

  3. Lisanne

    Bad weather ruined the trip but it’s rainy season so we were expecting that. Not anyone’s fault though. The snorkeling and food was enjoyable, the ride there and back not so much because of the waves.
