Enjoy this pig island tour by speedboat from Koh Samui and go snorkeling & sightseeing in half a day!
We’ll email you the pickup time once the booking is in. Our driver will pick you up at the mentioned time from your hotel or villa on Koh Samui. We head south towards the pier in Thong Krut from where our speedboat leaves.
We arrive at Koh Taen. Here you can go snorkeling and enjoy the beautiful underwater world. Please note that visibility may be less during rainy season. We provide masks & snorkels and you are free to go snorkeling, swimming or relaxing on the boat for an hour.
After a few minutes we arrive at Pig island for the second part of the tour. We get off the speedboat and onto Koh Madsum, where you can enjoy a long stretch of beach. This island is home to the famous pigs who stroll around and may go for a swim once in a while. Take pictures, go swimming or enjoy a refreshing drink at the beach bar (not included in the tour price).
For lunch 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.
If it’s just raining, we’ll still go out on this tour as it is a special experience as well to go snorkeling and to visit pig island in the rain. When the waves are too high for us to go out with the speedboat, we’ll cancel the tour and offer you an alternative date or refund the paid fees.
The best time to visit Pig Island & Koh Taen is right after the rainy season (February-October). The seas are usually calm and we’ll get plenty of sunshine. The best months are april & may, but keep in mind it will get hot on the island so bring plenty of (reef safe) sunscreen!
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.
