From the hotel pick up, day on the water and return transfers, we were looked after like stars. The Chantara crew couldn't have been more helpful. Lunch had plenty of choice for all. Although the winds prevented us from snorkelling at Ko Mah, another suitable place was made available. Transfer to the beach for an afternoon swim was also appreciated.... More

This was a really good experience. From the pick up to the drop off this was a really well organised tour. We swam in the sea, snorkelled, drank cocktails on a remote beach, had an amazing lunch on-board and we're giving snacks at regular intervals. We thoroughly enjoyed the way we were looked after. Thanks Marco and crew! Definitely one... More

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...

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

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
