What to Expect from the Koh Samui fishing day trip
Go fishing with us in the sea near Koh Samui! We board a traditional Thai fishing boat (with toilet on board) with a maximum of 15 persons and go fishing in the waters around Koh Samui. The exact location depends on the weather and water conditions on the day, but the usual spots are Koh Tan and/or Koh Madsum in the south or Koh Som in the direction of Koh Phangan. You can expect to catch many small fish and if you’re lucky some bigger ones like Barracudas, Mackerel, Grouper or Trevally. The fishing trip on Koh Samui is also suitable for people who don’t want to fish: you can join for half price and go swimming while the others in your group are fishing. This fishing day tour is a great way to get to know the local fish and ways of fishing in South Thailand!

Fishing & swimming
Seafood BBQ on board (with your own catch if you want!)
The Thai fishing boat leaves from the pier and we head to the fishing spot somewhere on the open sea around Koh Samui. We provide the rods, lure and bait so you can go catch some fish! People who don't want to go fishing can go snorkeling, swimming or relax on board.
Ready to taste your own catch? Our guide will prepare a tasty BBQ lunch on board. If you want, we can put the fish you caught on the BBQ. If no one caught anything (that never happens though!), the captain will have enough seafood ready for all of you. Enjoy lunch!
At the end of the afternoon it's time for our fishing boat to head back to the pier in the north or south of Koh Samui. The fishing tour ends with a transfer back to your hotel. A memory not to forget with this day full of fishing, eating, swimming and snorkeling on Koh Samui!
The fishing location depends on the weather and water conditions around Koh Samui. When the waters are calm on the north side, we will usually go to Koh Som, a small island north of Koh Samui. When the conditions are better in the south, we normally head to Koh Tan and Koh Madsum. In both locations there are many fish to be caught.
We have done this fishing tour a number of times. You will definitely catch a lot of smaller fish that inhabit the waters. Usually you can also catch larger fish like a Grouper or Trevally, but they are more difficult to catch. It happens that one of the anglers gets lucky and you can enjoy your own large catch on the BBQ on board.
When it's just raining the tour will happen as the chances of catching larger fish increases during the rain. When the waves are too high, we will postpone or cancel the trip. In that case you can use your deposit towards a different date, different tour or we will refund you in full.
You can cancel your booking for free up until 48 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.
