Cruise Schedule

8 – 8:45 am Free Pick up from your designated resort

9.00 am The boat leaves from Ban Tai at 9 am. Upon arrival at boat, there is an array of snacks, fruit, soft drinks, and tea and coffee to welcome you on board.

10:20 – 12:00 Swimming and Snorkelling at Koh Wao, or Koh Tay Plow. Snorkelling in crystal clear waters, you will see a great variety of beautiful tropical fish, and other marine life. Lunch is a delicious help-yourself buffet of traditional Thai food, including spicy curries & seasonal fruit.

12:30 Ao Ka Beach – Talay Nai – Here if you have chosen Kayaks, you can kayak around and make your way to Koh Mae Koh. If you have not chosen kayaks, you stay on Orion, and you will go to Mae Koh, to Talay Nai, the beautiful Emerald Lake.

1:30 Koh Mae Koh – On Mae Koh we visit the beautiful emerald lagoon Talay Nai, surrounded by steep limestone cliffs, where the scenes are breathtaking. A short, steep climb to the viewing platform offers a stunning panorama of the picturesque islands that Form the National Marine Park on one side, and a breathtaking view of the emerald lagoon on the other. Make sure you have good footwear!

3:30 Koh Wua Talap Island. Here you can choose to go to see the caves with beautiful limestone formations which is about 50 minutes walk or to the view point, or just relax and enjoy the beach, and see the monkeys. Probably one of the best hikes in the islands of the Gulf of Thailand. Here,there is a
path leading up the side of the rocks. This will take maybe 30 minutes to walk up, and well worth it. But be warned, this is not a hike for the faint hearted. Make sure you have good footwear as there are sharp limestone crags which will be your foothold, especially towards the peak. With a breathtaking view of all the Ang Thong islands, the end result of the hike is well worth it. This trek will justify the trip to Ang Thong alone, but please be warned, this is a tough and steep climb!!!

4:45 Depart Angthong Marine Park

6 – 6:30 Arrive back in Koh Phangan, and free transfer back to your resort.

Our speed boat is faster so will return earlier, usually return to Thong Sala between 4.30- 5pm.
