“Amazing Day on A beautiful boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I think I was on the same trip as the reveiwer below! if so then hi from Julie and tony ..
We had the best day out on the Red Baron, we went on the brunch cruise from 11am until 4.30pm and enjoyed every moment.
The ship is beautiful and there is so much space onboard, the food and drinks are endless and this was one of the best meals we had all holiday. I also asked for the recepie for the Massaman curry so Kathy if you get this from Bernt please PM it over to me!

The history of the boat is great and Bernt is very knowledgable about the island.
We had snorkeling stops and also a short treck to the waterfull in Koh Phangan.

Great company and amazing food what more can you ask for!
I would recommend this to anyone visiting Koh Samui

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Booked this because we were put off the speed boat trips offered by all the other companies. We didn't fancy being sea sick, as so many reviews suggest because you get thrown around so much. So this was perfect, a very relaxed day, the host , Bernt, was just great, good company, amusing, and very friendly but without being in your face all day. Lovely man. The food was endless, and excellent, we did the brunch cruise, we thought it would be just that, brunch, but no, the food kept coming, Bernt called it the endless buffet, he was right. The chicken massaman curry was the best thing I ate in 16 days in Thailand, infact I asked him for the recipie, but then got off the boat without getting it, so I will be e mailing him for that.
The boat was beautiful, very well kept for cleanliness, and facilities, Bernt was very knowledgable about everywhere, he said he'd lived in Thailand for 49 years. the rest of the crew were very good, always a smile, and very helpful, just a great day out, I'd recommend anyone to do this trip if you want a slow relaxing day out. We were originally booked on the Saturday cruise, the full day round samui, but had to cancel because I was unwell. So Bernt said ok to re book for the Wednesday and I got refunded the differance . And they even asked if I was better on the Wednesday , so nice that they remembered ... Well done Red Baron .

“Excellent day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We spent the entire day on the Red Baron and were lucky enough to have perfect weather and Berndt as our host. The whole crew were very helpful but Berndt seemed to go out of his way to make sure each guest was comfortable and enjoying themselves. There were a few different areas to sit on board, including some in the shade which made a huge difference when spending the entire day in the sun! The snorkelling spot was absolutely beautiful and followed by a delicious lunch on board (the masaman curry is one of the best we've had). A lovely way to enjoy a day seeing a little more of this corner of Thailand, highly recommended.
