Angthong Marine Park VIP Speedboat Simply Spectacular

Posted By : Michelle Pennington/ 2086 0

Angthong Marine Park what a wonderful place

I recently had the pleasure of joining the VIP Speedboat full day tour to Angthong Marine Park.

What a spectacular place, peacful, tranquile surroundings, still unspoiled by tourism.

Apart from the wonderful Marine Park, the next wonder of the day was the staff and the organization of 100 Degrees East

From start to finish the whole day was organized very well, the safety was paramount, service levels so high they were flawless, and at the end even when the weather changed the Captain ensured we all arrived back safely and as smoothly as possible.

They also care about the Marine life and the effects, before leaving the office we all had an explanation about why certain actions are detrimental to the environment and Marine life.

Our fins and mask were sized out and ensured all fitted comfortably before leaving for our tour

Only 12 persons maximum on the speedboat leaving much room to be seated where you choose. I chose to sit up front and be a little explorer seeking that adrenaline rush. Life jackets were handed to each person and explained at all time that they must be worn whilst traveling on the boat.

Our 1st stop was snorkeling at a quiet area just on the outskirts of the marine park. As we arrived we passed numerous boats of all sizes moored with customers, our location was away from the crowds.

The sea life was in abundance however, I must admit that the waters were not as clear however visibility was still clear enough to see the sea life below.

At all times the guides stayed in the water, staying close by inexperienced snorkellers. The guides had with them floating rings for those feeling tired or frightened in the water.

Our next set of activities was at the headquarters of the Marine Park – Kayaking to an unspoiled beach. Only a short journey approx 15 minutes each way.

Our time was relaxing, swimming and simply taking in the breathtaking surroundings. The staff again were very attentive for those feeling uneasy in the kayaks. They spend time taking family photos, for each group which never seemed at all an issue for them simply brilliant.

After kayaking, we enjoyed a delicious Thai buffet which included, curry, vegetable dish, fried chicken, Thai salads, and spring rolls. Plenty of food to go around everyone and more

For those more adventurous were offered additional trekking which was more like rock climbing, which was great fun. The views from the top were just amazing that left you drifting somewhere else for moments.

The last group of activities was the trek to the Emerald lake viewpoint, which wasn’t so far in the boat.

The trek was an easier one, and the views were somewhat different than the 1st, but just as amazing.

Our trip was cut short due to weather change. We watched the black cloud move over us, so for safety, the Captain decided we should leave early to make our journey home safely.

This was a decision much appreciated by all on board as the weather changed so much so the waters were very choppy, and some onboard suffered seasickness.

The staff showed genius concern for their customers on board and even took the time to massage one of the customers who seemed to be distressed.

As an agent on Koh Samui, I recommend this tour highly, simply because of the staff on board and the organization of the operator. You can’t offer this level of service which 25 + passengers on board a speedboat, or spend the time and receive such a personal touch from the staff.

Samui recommends and will only book operators offering tours on the Island that offer such fabulous service for their customers.
