We'll meet at the pier 20 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. Once all guests have arrived, I will give a brief summary of the day and then we will board the longtail boat and set off. The first stop is just off of the coast of Koh Tan where there is a nice coral reef and is the best snorkeling spot around Samui. We'll spend about an hour there. Typically, we see a lot of tropical fish and sometimes some stingrays, sea urchins, and even crabs. Next, we will head over to a small island called Koh Madsum (aka Pig Island) to feed the pigs healthy snacks, have some time to relax on the beach, walk around and take nice pics of the view. After that, we will board the boat and head for the stunning natural and undeveloped island of Koh Tan. Upon arrival, we'll board the safari jeep and start exploring the island. The first stop will be at a gorgeous coral and shell beach which is unfortunately littered with garbage that has washed up over time. This is where you'll participate in a beach cleanup and also have a chance to enjoy the amazing view, take a swim and of course take some nice photos. By this time we'll have worked up an appetite and we'll head for the restaurant situated on the lagoon and enjoy a delicious family-style lunch. Following lunch, we'll take a short walk through the cool mangrove forest before catching the boat to head back to Samui.
I'm an expat who's been enjoying Koh Samui for nearly ten years. I run a tour and experiences company called Tour Explore where our slogan is "Tour the Sights, Explore the Culture". I design my trips around things that my family and friends enjoy doing when they come to visit me. I have an awesome team of guides that help co-host my experiences. Their names are Jack, Tan, Win and Yankee. They are well trained and very well liked. We are passionate about taking our guests to truly authentic places on Koh Samui and the surrounding islands. We also enjoy partnering with the local community to help bring tourists to their businesses (boat company, restaurant, etc.). My original Airbnb Experience, Snorkeling & Pig Island Experience, has been a lot of fun to host and I look forward to growing this one as well.
A delicious family-style Thai lunch is included.
We'll travel to the islands onboard a licensed and insured longtail boat.
Snorkeling gear, a life jacket, and towels will be provided.
We will depart from a pier in a quiet fishing village. Our first stop will be at a coral reef where we'll enjoy the best snorkeling around Samui!

The third stop will be the stunning undeveloped island of Koh Tan you'll have the opportunity to see the beauty of Koh Tan's beaches, viewpoints, and mangroves.
