“A trip to remember”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I am not normally one for reviewing online, but in this case I felt compelled to. Myself and a group of close friends chartered the Catamaran "Dreamcatcher" for a 3 day private trip. As experienced sailors it was greatly anticipated and nothing fell short of our expectations, boat handled superbly, the weather particularly the winds was just what we wanted, Kuntha, the Captain was brilliant, not just because of his unprecedented sailing skills and experience but also a great guy to have in the group.

The boat is excellent, spacious, comfortable, up to date and handles brilliantly, the Sea Wind Range of catermarans is well known in the sailing world and I was very impressed.

Thanks a lot to Kuntha and his team for a job very well done,

“Fantastic trip and a must do when in Koh Samui”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I am no stranger to Koh Samui and have done many excursions over the years when on Samui, but I have to say our sailing adventure with Kunta and his team has to rank as one of the top excursions we have ever done here. We did a 3 day trip to Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, amazing way to see these islands via sailing. I did this excursion with my wife and daughter who is 11 years old and they both loved it - think my daughter felt like Elizabeth Swan from Pirates of the Caribbean or maybe it's me thinking I was Jack Sparrow.

Anyway we spent the night on the Dreamcatcher catamaran which is an awesome vessel, plenty of space, cabins were great but we actually decided to sleep outside on deck as the weather was perfect, cool and nothing better than looking up at the stars (little different than in the UK).
Next morning we sailed around Koh Tao and did some amazing snorkeling - away from all the crowds and daily tour boats (thank you Kunta). Next we sailed back to Samui via Koh Phangan, another stunning island and sailing around it was just so cool.

We were also lucky enough to have a couple of hours of quite strong wind which meant we could see this vessel go full power with the sails up in full flight, absolutely fantastic, a rush for the whole family and very safe (big boat).
As we thought the trip couldn't get any better, our skipper Kunta suddenly turned into a DJ and played his entire soundtrack collection - old school rock :))))).

All in all we have to say it was the highlight of our holiday, kunta is a star, his staff are super friendly and knowledgeable, especially Bobby. The boat Dreamcatcher is as its name says - A Dream...... We really look forward to our next trip with the Samui Ocean Sports team when we visit the National Marine Park....Can't wait.

“A great day sailing.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

What a perfect day on the 27ft Crazyhorse catamaran. Our crew Kunta(owner) and his first mate Ray were great hosts and extremely knowledgeable about the waters around Samui and Koh Phangan. We chose the full day cruise to Koh Phangan, where we enjoyed a beautiful Thai buffet on the beach, and swimming in the beautiful bay where we moored. I would have no hesitation on going sailing with Kunta or any of his crew again. Next time we would like to go on an overnight island hopping trip. I urge anyone coming to Samui to go on one of these trips be it a half day or a few days of sailing. Samui ocean sports have options to suit everyone's needs and interests. Their website is informative and professional so check it out. Thanks Kunta and Ray, and see you in the near future.

“Great afternoon of sailing. We were well cared for.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We spent a blustery afternoon aboard the Crazy Horse and because od the winds we made it to Koh Phangan in an hour. It was a lovely time for our family of six, even though our youngest, who had laid on his back the first hour ended up sea sick on the return trip probably because of his positioning. Our sailors took excellent care of him and brought us back as efficiently as possible. They even went above and beyond and dropped us at the fishing dock near our villa so he wouldn't have to take a taxi home. It was a beautiful boat and our whole family enjoyed the experience. The sailing was so smooth despite the large waves. I don't hesitate to recommend this company at all. We loved the private family sail.

“Dreamcatcher - Day Tour of Koh Phangan”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

This day tour for myself and 11 friends was much more that we could ever imagine.
Kunta was fantastic, answering e-mails within hours and organizing the entire trip to our needs and budget.
We had a fantastic time sailing to Koh Phangan, a beautiful buffet lunch on the beach and really enjoyed our exploring time. Even the boys were over the moon with being able to fish. The surrounds were beautiful and Kunta knew exactly where to take us.
The entire trip was trouble free, and we enjoyed every single second of it from transfers from our hotel until we were dropped off again at the end of the day.
As we said on the day, it was definitely the highlight of our trip and would do it again in a heart beat.
If you want a fantastic, beautiful, friendly, cost-effective way to see the islands off samui, i could not recommend Kunta and Sailing in Samui/Samui Ocean Sports highly enough.
Thanks for the fantastic day.
Lauren!
