A boat trip with the Chanatara is really recommended as you see a beautiful landscape and have a few stopps for various activites as snorkeling, swimming or solely relaxing on a beautiful beach.Not to forget the friendly team. Lunch is very delicicious.Fishing in the afternoon attracted a sea eagle and the tour ended with a nice sunset.

Extremely high quality tour, professional while being warm, caring and friendly. Marco and the crew gave us a fabulous day in a trip around Koh Phangan. Trust that if they are sailing that day, that the weather will cooperate as several people made their own decision to cancel, and it was all sunshine. Snorkeling was excellent, as was all of...

We had a fantastic day, pick up from hotel was easy, travel to bangrak pier, from there Marco and crew introduce themselves and then head on to the Chantara junk boat.. And boy she's impressive! The day was quite relaxing and smooth ride out to island, the boat stops for a while allowing time for snorkeling or fishing. Soft drinks... More

Me and my partner did this trip on 2nd June 2016. We planned it so the trip was on her birthday. It was a perfect way to spend the day. Marco and the crew were fantastic hosts and really made us feel welcome and looked after.  There was a lot of complimentary food and drink constantly on offer which is... More

If you are considering a boat trip around Koh Samui, I would recommend this trip. It was very relaxing on board, the host Marcus and crew very friendly. They provide refreshments and delicious food to enjoy throughout the day. We stopped to snorkel (or in my case, just swim) and then to the island where you have a choice to... More

Went out with these guys yesterday. Easy and efficient internet booking, timely pick up from hotel in aircon mini bus and drop off afterward. Friendly and efficient crew and a great on board chef who just keeps the galley kitchen pumping all day long. Beautiful Thai lunch with a great variety of fresh seafood, meat and veggies with as much... More

Katatapos ko lang maglakbay sa Chantara Junk Boat Tour last 10May. Grabe ang saya, napakagaling ng tour guide na si Marco 👍magalang at alam niya tlga ang trabaho niya. Ang sarap ng pagkain nila, over flowing ang inumin on board, puwera sa beer and cocktails. Wala akong nakikitang di maganda sa tour na ito. Ang ganda pa nung pinuntahan naming... More

We travelled along the coast of Koh Panghan in the most incredible way! Chantara was the best decision we made when planning a trip around the island. Not only was it pure luxury, but the whole experience was just incredible. From meeting Marco and his crew, to the food on board. Our tummys were never empty and our throats never... More
