If you're looking for an awesome day trip, book a day long boat snorkeling trip. The largely unspoiled beaches provide an excellent place to sit and have your meal (generally provided as part of the package). With good viz, except in monsoon season, you will enjoy the day.

I went scuba diving here with discovery divers. Stunning remote island with what didn't look like a lot of people on it. A lot of boats with scuba divers. The place to go when diving

We decided to hire a long tail boat ourselves to do a snorkelling trip to Koh Tan. We had a bike so we rode all the way (1.5hr) to Tong Krood area and stopped at Tong Krood restaurant. They arrange for a 4hr package (1600B for 2 people) in a Long tail boat. This just includes the boat ride to Koh Tan and Koh Mudsum (20mins ride), snorkelling gear, life jacket and a loaf of bread for the fishes. I guess the neighbouring restaurants too arrange similar trips.

We jumped off the boat after 15-20mins off the coast of Koh Tan island. The water wasn't very clear however there were hundres of colourful fishes which swim up closer to the surface, as I guess they are now aware of the practice of feeding bread by tourists. It was nice to swim amongst the fishes and then we headed to a smaller isle adjacent to Koh Tan called Koh Mudsum.

Koh Mudsum probably had the whitest and the softest sands I have ever seen and the waters near the beach had this different shades of blue. We were spellbound and spent over an hour wading the shallow waters and lying down on the soft sand. Reluctantly we took the boat back to Samui/Tong Krood pier and rode back to our hotel.

We booked Tour Koh Taen speed boat trip for this lovely destination as we heard mix review about long tail boat to the islands. The island are very secluded and have great marine life around without the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui and other popular destinations.

I highly recommend this company as you feel that they really care about being green and keeping the island healthy. They do not walk on coral as all the long tail boat operator do and in accordance to them they help to conserve the island and contribute to the Koh Taen conservation club.

We had great ½ day with this company at 3 beaches on 2 different island with excellent sea food at the Koh Taen main beach and cycaling off road to the mangrove was just amazing.

We will be back to the islands and hope they stay secluded although it look like that few 5 star hotels in south Samui now offer trip to the islands

Hired a private long tail boat with the family for a trip to this lovely island.
Beautiful warm clear sea. The fish were everywhere! Took an underwater camera and had amazing shots of all different fish and beautiful coral.
Lovely relaxing day . Another day in paradise!
