The Only Way To Cruise Ang Thong Marine Park

Making It The Most Trusted & Complete WordPress Theme On The Market.

Welcome Aboard Orion Cruises

Please browse through our site and galleries 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 for its natural beauty, situated 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.

Our Big Boat Stand Out From The Rest

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.
