What an amazing trip. Good timing 11am- 7pm. We were the only English couple which wasn’t an issue however massive thanks to Chris for giving us lots of advice and information regarding the trip in English. 1st stop snorkelling around a coral reef to the north of the Island and the second stop being a beautiful beach. The winds on the east of the island were strong and therefore not very good for sailing in so we stayed in the West so it was not a “tour around the island” but the crew did their best to ensure we had a great time. We were fed lots and lots of times and free soft drinks throughout the trip. Well recommended. Thanks again Chris and all the crew involved! Will recommend this to anyone visit Ko Samui :)

We had a great day going from Koh Samui to Ko Pha-ngan. The crew were friendly and efficient, explaining the trip and ensuring our safety. Lunch was delicious and we enjoyed cocktails served to us at our seats. Would thoroughly recommend this trip! We had a great day!

Overall a positive experience. The food, drinks and activities were top. We weren't lucky to have enough wind, so are trip was completely done by motor. This wasn't really a problem. We were happy we had taken something against sea-sickness, that was necessary. We only missed "a connection" with the crew. We are native Dutch speaking but speak fluently French and English. There were a lot of native french speaking guests and our captian (also frensh) was connecting with them. There was also someone of the crew who connected with german people. They certainly entertained their guests, but we feld "between groups". Certainly not a problem, but having a connections with owners (from activities or restaurants), makes the experience more personal. We certainly recommend this activity during your visit at Koh Samui!

Hi, Thanks to take your time to send your review. We are sorry but the boat is too heavy and we are not able to go only by sail even with a strong wind we would never be able to follow a program, it would take few days to go around Koh Phangan. I'm sorry that you fell between groups and that the crew was not more available for you. Glade that you still enjoyed the trip. Best regards, Eric

Thanks to the whole Chantara crew for the special and unforgettably beautiful day. In particular I want to thank Chris, the german guide in pirate costume, who led through the day in entertaining and easy going fashion. The boat is awesone and so is the food. At times I felt like I was part in pirates of the caribbean. I even took the trip twice.
