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 Koh Tao is after the rainy season and when the waters are calm. This is usually the case between february/march and august, but weather conditions may vary. You’ll find clear waters during the hot season in april and may, but make sure to bring sun screen as it can be very hot! The speedboat is equipped with a sun cover.

The viewpoint of Koh Nang Yuan is accessible from the beach between the small island in the south. 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.

    Lovely day but mass operation

    The boats were big and fast- and it is definitely worth to go a day snorkeling to Koh Tao. It is however truly a mass tourism operation- 40 people by boat, all a bit crowded.

  2. Shelley UK

    What an amazing day! The crew was incredibly friendly, and the day went off without a hitch. We got to visit some fantastic places and had an absolutely awesome time snorkeling. And let me tell you, the lunch we had at Koh Tao was delicious! They even made sure to keep us refreshed with drinks on the boat between stops.

    Best snorkeling

    The boat ride was quite long, about 1.5 hours, but it was absolutely worth it. The snorkeling experience was hands down the best we’ve ever had. The tour was impressively efficient and well-organized. If you tend to get seasick, I’d definitely recommend taking some Dramamine before the trip. We only wish we had more time to spend on the first island because it was incredibly beautiful. And the hike we went on was totally worth it for the stunning view we got to enjoy.
