This is a must-do day trip if you are visiting Koh Samui. Various tour operators offers different trips, and they will all include some snorkeling, visiting a few of the islands in the park, a traditional lunch, kayaking, etc. Prices are all very similar and we would rate it as one of the excursions to definitely do.

Spent a night here in one of the ranger's huts and it remains one of my fondest holiday memories. The hut was a bargain and we even managed to use the rangers' restaurant for some food and ended up being invited to a birthday party for one of the marine park's staff! Everyone was very friendly and the sites we... More

We visited Angthong National Marine Park as part of a tour itinerary and it is definitely worth the visit. The emerald lagoon is definitely worth the hike. I only wish we could have spent more time there. A truly magical experience.

The first stop was to the island with a lagoon which was beautiful but involved very steep climbing those who wanted could do some kayaking . The rock caves were beautiful . The lunch... More

We took this day trip through one travel organizer, but because there is so many, my comments aren't valid for all. The boat trip to the Park took some time and I would have hoped to have something other to eat on board than bananas because it was quite early and we didn't have time to eat breakfast in our...

We visited the Angthong National Park as part of a tour that included kayaking between a couple of the small islands, visiting the lagoon and hen a choice between trekking/climbing up to the view point or snorkelling in the bay. The lagoon was nice, but was just a lagoon, swimming is not allowed and there was no direct access into... More

Travelled on 12-7-2014 with 4 adults and 4 children ( Age 11, 9,8 and 3). Booked through hotel on Lomlahk. Travel was bumpy as it was full moon day. since It was raining they did not allow us to climb the Angthong view point dont know why... So we missed the many island views...

You need to take fast speedboat (approx. 80mins) we visited good secluded snorkling, also visited secluded beach for kayaking. Lunch in main island was also good. Older children will love the trip

I did a full day tour out to Angthong National Marine Park and thoroughly enjoyed it. The snorkeling was superb and so was the hike and view of Emerald Lake. It was a rather windy day so the kayaking wasn't great but other than that, it's a really beautiful place to go and see.

Cannot praise this day out with Samui Island Tours enough. Brilliant guides with Liam and Christina who were very amusing in their talks. With kayaking, walks and swimming or snorkelling on the agenda it was a fun packed enjoyable day. You have to experience this day as words fail to express the fun that was had by all.
