Please browse through our site and gallerys to get a feel for our Marine Park
Cruises with The Orion Team, The Only Way To See The Marine Park Islands.

Angthong National Marine Park Islands is an archipelago of 42 islands and is
a protected area, famous forits natural beauty, situtated in the Gulf Coast
of Southern Thailand abundant with coral and marine life, and natural beauty.

These islands hold some wondrous hidden treasures and what better way to enjoy these sights than with Orion.

Angthong, literally means 'golden bowl', and occupies almost 250 sq km and
includes 50 sq km of limestone islands. Rocks cliffs and rock formations rise
dramatically from the sea. Caves, hidden lagoons and white sand beaches are
there to be explored and snorkeling among the shallow coral gardens.

There is an abundance of wildlife here including Pacific reef-egret, collared
kingfisher, hairy-nosed otters, white-bellied seaeagle, bats, little heron,
white rumped shama, wagtails, king fishers, seagulls, common sandpiper,
brahminy kite, southern pied hornbill, nest swiflet, oriental pied hornbill,
monitor lizards, ashy drongo, dolphin, sea otters, leopard cats and macaques
sea turtles, tortoises and pythons. 

The Gulf of Thailand, where Angthong Marine National Park is located, is a major breeding ground for the short-bodied mackerel, a staple in the Thai diet.
Common land animals include squirrels, pythons, monitors, sea otters, leopard cats, wild boars and dusky langurs, which are unusually friendly.

Among 40 confirmed bird species are little herons, black bazas, brahminy kites,
Eurasian woodcocks, kingfishers, wagtails and swifts - the nests of which are
considered a delicacy. 

On some Orion boat trips, Whales and dolphins have been spotted. 

In this fast developing world of construction and constant transition, cruising out to Angthong in the comfort of a big 22 metre wooden cruising vessel, one is assured fun, adventure and space.

Orion has been specifically designed for these seas, and rather than in a speed boat, where one is tightly packed in, Orion rewards her passengers the chance to really enjoy the ocean and all its gifts.

Please when exploring Angthong National Marine Park & surrounding Islands, please pay heed to your rubbish and dispose of it on the boat and in the rubbish bags provided or in the rubbish bins on the island. We would like to preserve the natural wildlife and marine life as we move through and enjoy their home. You will see this comment around the islands........
