About
The Five Islands Situated only five mins by boat from Phangka bay, these islands are populated by swifts, a protected species made famous for the birds nest soup dish. The inhabitants of these islands are the local sea gypsies who protect them from poachers. Great place for pictures. Koh Tan Koh Tan is a short cruise from the the five islands and has a great variety of marine life. Here we snorkel from the speedboat which has easy access ladders at rear. We have the opportunity here to see a wide array of fishes and colourful corals under the supervision of our guide. Koh Mudsum We disembark from the boat to explore the pristine white beaches of Koh Mudsum, this is the time to unwind and relax whilst taking in the surrounding breathtaking scenery. Spend some unforgettable moments getting to know the local pig inhabitants and take pictures whilst feeding these curious creatures. On Koh Mudsum we enjoy a traditional lunch on this paradise island to round of the day perfectly.

        Itinerary
        • 1
          Enjoy an exclusive tour with Oceana on one of our single engine speedboats, a more comfortable way to explore the Southern seven islands. With only 8 passengers maximum on our boats which are licensed for 12 you have more space to relax and enjoy the day. Every boat comes with a Captain and Guide and feature fresh water shower with portable sound systems. Easier access from the rear of the vessel whilst entering and exiting after snorkeling or relaxing on beaches than a traditional long tail boat. 10.00am – Boat departs from Phangka, a secluded bay in the South of Koh Samui. (Please ask your tour manager for individual minibus collection times) 10.10am – We arrive at the gorgeous five islands and cruise through, famous for the birds nesting on each. This offers a wonderful backdrop for photographs. 10.30am – Leisurely we coast to Koh Tan for snorkeling and swimming, Koh Tan has a wide variety of marine life with beautiful coloured corals. 11.30am – We then set off for Koh Mudsum known locally as pig island, to relax and enjoy the white sand beach. While on Koh Mudsum we will see the resident pigs with an opportunity to feed the animals, another must for budding photographers. 12.30pm – Traditional lunch at a restaurant on Koh Mudsum 1.45pm – Depart for the coastal cruise to Phangka bay for minibus back to your resort.

          Breathtaking views!
          This trip was incredible! We had a wonderful guide, perfect weather, and were able to truly enjoy the magic of the Marine Park. The Oceana Samui team went out of their way to make sure we went to less populated parts of the park to make sure we had an enjoyable experience. We did encounter sea life and sand flies at the beach at the last stop but still had a wonderful time enjoying the breathtaking views. Very pleased with this tour!

          Brilliant half day private speedboat trip with the kids
          This was a great private trip to Koh Madsum, we booked with Beer at Santiburi, she was so helpful and accommodating. we did some fishing and some snorkelling, the island is beautiful, the kids loved seeing the pigs! The crew really looked after us especially the kids, nothing was too much trouble. Such a great half a day trip - highly recommended for everyone.

          Core memories made with Oceana!
          The sunset experience with Oceana is without a doubt, one of our favorite highlights from our trip to Koh Samui. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an intimate experience with family / friends. Can’t wait to go out with them again - the crew were very attentive, personable, and professional. Thank you Oceana and team for creating a core memory!

          Thank you Ms. Beer and Oceania Samui
          We went on unforgettable marine one day journey with Oceana Samui from our Santiburi hotel. The experience was pleasant and memorable starting with the truly professional guidance from our front desk manager - the really charming Beer (Beer we love you) and continued during all the whole day trip. The Speedboat staff were really great - caring and attending. The boat was fast and convenient. The trip to the AngThong National Marine Park, as well as all included activities was something to remember. We enjoyed snorkeling, sight seeing, delicious lunch at really cozy fisherman’s village and a luxury secluded island beach break. If you are planning a trip to Samui, you should for sure book a boat trip with Oceania Samui and necessarily ask for Ms. Beer. You will enjoy a beautiful memories and a superb service.

          Professional and super friendly speedboat company in Samui area. Great experience !
          Booked them for a full day private speed boat to Koh Tao. Amazing service, picked us from our hotel pier (Four Seasons) with a spotless and super powerful double engine speed boat. They had cold drinks, fruit on board. 3 crew members (captain, his assistant and a hostess). They were all super friendly and professional. P.K our hostess, took care of us well and was super nice and friendly. They took us to amazing snorkeling sites and accommodated all our needs and wishes. Highly recommend !

          Fantastic half day trip
          Beer at Santiburi arranged a half day trip to Koh Phangan for us as a family of 5, including 3 teenagers. It was a real highlight of the holiday. We went snorkelling, to a beach on Koh Phangan and then got to jump off the boat whilst watching a beautiful sunset which was truly magical. It was all very professional and the lovely crew took some great photos and sent them to us afterwards.

          First class service
          We booked 2 seperate boat trips. The first was a half day private trip to pig island, koh tao and the 5 islands. Our crew for the day were amazing! Our first stop was to take photos at the 5 islands. We were told about the islands and their inhabitants. Then we went snorkeling off koh tao. It was brilliant! Highly recommend taking a go pro or a waterproof case for your phone so you can capture the huge variety of marine life. Then to pig island for drinks and food, these were an extra cost. You can also buy pig and dog food on pig island. We loved it here and it was the highlight of the day. We stayed here for around an hour and a half then headed back home. Our 2nd trip was the private tour to Angthorn Marine park. We were picked up on the beach at pur hotel at 9 o'clock. Again, our crew were amazing and very accommodating. A couple of our party got quite sea sick and they were really kind and caring. Our first stop was for snorkelling. A go pro or waterproof camera case would come in really useful here too. We were there for around an hour and a half. There was so much to see! We then went to see the emerald lake. It was a lot of climbing very steep steps, but it was worth the effort! We than went for lunch at a remote seafood restaurant. The food was amazing! Our last stop was at the most beautiful remote beach we have ever seen! We were the only people there. After a couple of hours here we headed back. I would highly recommend these trips. They made our holiday even more special

          Perfect day on a VIP tour to Anthong National Park
          Best day we spent in Thailand! We highly recommend the tour. The day was just perfect and literally everything about this tour worked well. What we loved: the scenery was magical and experiencing it on a smaller boat with a few other travelers was exactly what we needed! The reef was sadly not doing great as in many parts of the world but there were lots of fish and we had a great time snorkeling by the wall! Lunch was super tasty and my fave was the fried shrimp. The beach hangout at the end of the trip was incredible. We kayaked and had lots of time to relax! The crew was so friendly and gave us just what we needed. We got dropped off at our hotel by the sea at the end! Highly recommend this tour and the company!

          Fun private jeep trip for 2
          Private jeep trip booked via Beer at the Santiburi hotel. Beer was very helpful and communicative. Very enjoyable trip where we could choose our own itinerary. Our driver / guide Mr A was very knowledgable. We learnt a great deal on our journey through the hills of Ko Samui. Would recommend a visit to the elephant sanctuary .

          Great sights, friendly and and knowledgeable staff. Food was great as well. Worth the price for sure. Trip was booked via Beer at Santaburi hotel. Reason for 4/5 stars is cleanness of the ocean/water. Mass tourism and raw sewage has definitivly affected nature over last two decades I have been going to Thailand. 5/5 stars for Beer (person we booked our trip with)

          Excellent trip to National Park Mu Ko Ang Thong
          Thanks to Beer and the team at Ocean Samui Charters, we had a fantastic trip to the Ang Thong Marine National Park. The boat was very clean, the crew did a great job showing us a breathtaking spot to snorkel, prepared fresh fruit on the boat and showed us a beautiful cove to swim. We loved the trip - it was really special!! We had a wonderful day with lots of unforgettable memories!! 🤩🤩 Many thanks for organizing this so smoothly for us - great job 👏🏻

        We called on a Monday and asked what they could do for a private tour with many different activities. On Tuesday morning we were aboard a modern, clean, beautiful boat, with a wonderful crew and expert pilot. The day ahead exceeded our expectations in terms of service, knowledge of the local area, quality of equipment, flexibility, and accommodating our needs in order to make the day a success. Worth every Baht!

        I just got back from an amazing day at Koh Mat Sum and Koh Tan by a private boat from Oceana Samui Charters. Their service is the best, staff pick me up at the hotel and send me back after the trip. The boat was so nice and look very new. They also provided variety of beverage to serve on the boat such as fresh coconut juice and soft drinks. My favorite part is the crew, they was so professional and do every thing to ensure that I had the best time. Koh Mat Sum is nice, water was very clear. There are many friendly pigs on the island waiting for you to feed them with snack and taking photos with. After taking a lot of photos, I want to Koh Tan and went back to hotel. This half day trip was amazing. Many thanks to Oceana Samui Charters team. Highly recommended!

        Thanks to Liam and the guys for a fabulous day. We went for the private charter so we could choose where we could go and when. It was a great decision, and Liam was very transparent about the diving conditions (not good) and offered lots of alternatives (very good).

        We took the 42 island tour, and left early to avoid most of the tour boats. The plan worked and we were one step ahead of the crowds all day. Great crew including a hilarious search and rescue for an item of clothing! Great fun, thanks guys.

        What a fantastic trip! The crew were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. On the boat we were provided with ice cold drinks which was such a relief after incredible snorkeling (equipment all clean and looked after). They even let us use their speaker to play a Little Mix mega mix which is not everyone’s cup of tea. The transfers were prompt, lunch was tasty and everyone was so accommodating. Would do it again and would highly recommend!

        Highly recommend this charter group. We started in Samui and cruised up to Koh Tao for the day. Some of us went snorkeling and some diving. The crew brought us to incredible spots to explore the beautiful turquoise waters of Thailand. It was a memorable day filled with magical moments. If you’re looking for a charter company look no further. This company will put smiles on everyone’s faces.

        The whole process of booking and the trip was well done. The boat was really good and clean, the guide was quite helpful as well.

        My only recommendation is to maybe try a different visiting option if you dont have kids. If you do have kids this is a nice balance of activities (snorkeling, island hopping), but if you dont, would be better maybe to do the longer Angthong trip

        But in terms of doing the tour with Ocean Samui, was excellent, all the way from pick up, to drop off and the fresh coconut juice on the boat as well

        This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. We organised it via our hotel (The Tongsai Bay) so weren’t sure what to expect.

        The cost was c. 4,800 BHAT + 7% tax per person. It’s worth noting that you can negotiate. I probably could have negotiated more but didn’t think about it until afterwards, annoyingly. I’m not too annoyed though as it was well worth the money.

        We got picked up about 8:30 and headed to just outside of the Fisherman’s Village to get on the boat. We had to wait 15 mins there and then had to make two stops on the way (which was slightly annoying but not too bad) but once we were there - about an hour later - we did some snorkelling before visiting the Angthong National Park.

        When snorkelling I’d recommend using the life jacket. I’m a good swimmer and didn’t use one but for ease next time, I definitely would - it means you don’t have to worry about cutting your feet on sharp rocks/sea urchins (which were everywhere) when treading water. The water was quite murky when we went so couldn’t see much but it was still a good experience...just watch out for bubbled areas (apparently it’s full of tiny plankton jelly fish 👀)

        Definitely take trainers if you’re thinking of going up to the viewing point at the National Park (it’s well worth it) as it’s more of a climb - the steps are very, very steep - than we expected.

        We then had a wonderful Thai lunch (they even catered for my wife who is a Celiac and can’t eat gluten) on a separate island before visiting a small cove where we did some kayaking/swimming and had a coconut on the way back. We got some amazing photos and the guy who ran the tour - Blue - was funny, welcoming and looked after us well.

        When looking at these tours, I’d recommend that you go on a smaller boat (14/15 people max) and, make sure it’s a speed boat as it takes an hour/hour and a quarter (excluding stop offs) each way rather than two hours otherwise you’ll spend most of the day travelling. You won’t regret spending the extra money!
