We were picked up at our hotel and brought to the pier. On the boat there was a free all you can eat and drink refreshment (soft drinks like water, coke, fanta, instant coffee and tea and fruits and croissants). The guide Marcos was fine, explaining everything you need. First stop was for snorkeling. We were notified in advance we... More

All in all we thought the tour was very well organized and the operators were professional, courteous, and thoughtful. Not a single complaint can be made out of the day. Scenery is beautiful, kayaking great, and beach time chilled out. The boat for Blue Stars is decent-sized, but can't hold too many people. That said, we had about 40 in... More

Overall I thought this tour was well managed and organized. My friend and I had a very enjoyable day. The tour starts with an approximately 1.5 hour boat ride out to the marine park during which a light breakfast of fresh fruit, croissants, coffee and tea is served. The tour operator takes the time to explain how the day's activities... More

You get what you pay for on this trip. Average boat, food etc but good day out for £40 each including food and soft drinks, hotel pickup, kayaking. The kayaks were ok condition with buoyancy aids and guides provided and had about 1 hour in total in the kayaks. Snorkelling no good. Takes about 1 hour 45 min each way... More

We had a group of about a dozen. We were picked up at our resort bang on time and headed to Nathon to board the boat. Everything was well organised and the guide explained the day well. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the boat ride to get to the location. I dont understand people who have complained about... More

If you enjoy kayaking and want a more "sporty" excursion, this is not the trip to join. Nice place though, so if you have some kayaking experience I think it would be a really nice to take a regular boat out to the main island in Ang Thong marine park and rent a kayak there and go on your own....

we read the reviews on trip advisor since it had great ratings , but were disappointed with the tour operator. The place is awesome, but choose someone else since it takes a whole day. 1. The boat is bad , not clean 2. The guide does not explain anything 3. Snorkeling is not worth since water is very gloomy ,... More

Despite the hype around the beauty of this park,, we were a little disappointed with this tour. It was a 7 hour tour, 4 hours of which involve sailing on a boat to the park and back with nothing to see but ocean. On arrival at the islands, we went kayaking and that was fantastic. The water was amazingly blue... More

The day trip to Ang Thong Marine Park was one of the highlights of my trip. The guide was fun and very helpful, we packed a lot of activities into a short period of time, though for those who wanted to relax on the boat's sun deck rather than kayak that was also a possibility. Food was really good too,... More
