Private Boat Hire Koh Samui to Koh Tao

Can anyone recommend the best private boat hire for a day visit from Koh Samui to Koh Tao or Koh Phangan that won't break the bank?

1. Re: Private Boat Hire Koh Samui to Koh Tao

Hi Sunshine,

I have not personally been on a day trip to Koh Tao although if I want to get information about anything on Koh Samui (and its surrounds) I always first visit the website of Elina70 at http://www.myhomekohsamui.com and use the search facility on the left hand side (scroll down a bit).

She has detailed a trip she made a couple of years ago at www.myhomekohsamui.com/2010/03/tours_19.html using a company called Petcherat http://www.samuispeedboat.com/kohtaotour.html and it might be worth sending her an email to see if the recommendation still stands or see if she might recommend an alternative boat hire company.

Hope this helps.

hi guys

petcherat marina has the largest fleet of speed boats on samui

however they are not cheap[or many they are compared to what your used to]

to hire a private speed boat for the day starts around 16,000 thai baht

to marine park will cost around 22,000 thai baht

i used to have my own boat and do tours myself

so i know that if you have good [good] insurance then you have to charge these prices

if you have local thai government compulsory insurance which is good but has very low accident cover for your customers ,then you can run your tours cheaper

hence cheapest isnt always best

cheers
