Great tour. Crew were excellent. Very helpful and ensured all our needs were met and we were happy. The food was excellent too. The snorkelling was fantastic, we saw thousands of fish. There were about 20 passengers on our cruise. Just loved it.
We had a really great time, good was excellent - chefs worked really hard all day. Hosts were great - activities were great - snorkelling/ kayaking and going to see the Emerald lake. Special cake for my birthday too -a really lovely day- thank you
Nice day on board an authentic ship. Friendly crew with very tasty food! Snorkeling was above average and kayaking was excellent
What a day!!!!! This is a long but beautiful boat ride out and back - and if you have motion issues definitely bring dramamine just in case. We rode far out even a bit beyond Ang Thong Marine Park seeing many fishing vessels at work and watching the shadows of islands on the horizon become the steep edged rock islands so unique to this apart of the world. Many are solid rock, with the base slightly worn away giving a ledge over the water and sometimes small caves! We snorkeled up beside one of these island and now I KNOW I need to get SCUBA certified and come back! THe variety of corals was amazing, spectacular fish life of all sorts, and I saw my first banded sea snake - thankfully swimming the other direction! I could have snorkeled all day. We were fed a delicious lunch buffet-style in the downstairs, then prepared for kayaking. Note - these are ride on top canoes (which I wasn't used to so was a little challenging but still awesome). Due to high tides we couldn't go through the cave as hoped, but we did circle and island, going between rock openings. It would have been easy to end there - but who wanted to miss climbing the 150 meters to the top of an island to see the famous green salt water lagoon and catch a view of the islands around us from above? I really appreciate the extra care and support given to my partner, who has some mobility issues, and to me who was doing my best to keep up with the largely younger crowd. It was a beautiful day - and I loved lounging on the bean bag chairs as seats on the top deck between adventures! The crew is great about giving you help if you want it but letting you be independent when you wish, and do their best to give you a great experience.
Crew were very hospitable and friendly. Considering the small space to work in the food served was plentiful and excellent quality. Comfy bean bags were an option while cruising. Snorkel stop was good.
Excellent day out with the family. Worth the little extra, staff go out of their way to ensure a fun experience for all. Plenty of food and drink all day.
Some of the best snorkeling I've done, the kayaking is done around some craggy cliffs, and we had the national park to ourselves when we arrived. The boat was incredibly comfortable, loved the hot tub. I highly recommend paying extra to go with this tour and avoid the crowds.
Great staff, good food, day was very relaxing no rush like other similar tours, boat was roomy and comfy
The highlight of our trip to Koh Samui! Definitely worth paying a bit more to go on this trip compared to other tours. Organisation and food is great. Snorkelling and sea kayaking lots of fun. We were also lucky to see some pink dolphins swimming near the boat. Highly recommended!
This was easily one of the highlights of our trip! The entire excursion was extremely well planned, and a lot of fun! Even though on the day we went com of the water was a little cloudy, everything else was excellent! The food was great too! York was a lot of fun and made sure we were all very happy!
We had an awesome day trip at the Red Dragon Boat. We really enjoyed such a nice time on the boat. The team to really good care of each one of us - great service in board and the food was amazing! The trip is really worth it and we recommend it to the fullest!!!!
The boat was very nice and clean. The crew was very polite and helpful. The food was tastful. I can recomend this boat trip to eweryone.
A very professional staff made this trip a very nice and relaxed experience. From pick up to the end. Great food and fantastic snorkeling.
Tour was very well managed,loved it ! Individual approach,hot tub,fun guides.Definitely recommend this tour with just a few passengers over high volume tours.
Great trip. Picked up on time. The boat was comfortable, with bean bags, hot tub with seawater which was lots of fun.
The food was excellent. York and the rest of team were great. York in particular really went out of his way to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves, including turning the boat round to pick up one of the guys hats that had fallen in the water!
Myself and one of the other girls were worried about snorkelling, so he suggested we went in a kind of dingy, where we could look over the side, and not miss this adventure, which we did! thanks York.
It is a little more expensive than other trips, but worth the extra ,especially when you can see these beautiful places with out the crowds, basically getting the place to yourself.
DONT MISS IT but just prepare yourself as it is a LONG DAY! we set off at 9am from our hotel, and arrived back at 8.15pm!
Booked the Classic Thai Yachts Sunset Boutique Cruise after seeing the reviews on the website, it is every bit as good as everyone says . Our trip got cancelled because of bad weather but they let us know in plenty of time and rearranged no problem to a couple of days later . We were on the small boat just 14 of us . Our guide York and our captain saw that we had an amazing day by telling us all about the Islands and looking after us so well . The food cooked by a lovely lady who l am sorry to say l cannot remember her name !! was delicious. We had fun in the jacuzzi, snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming on a beautiful beach and then York guided us up the steps to see the Blue Lagoon , he made it so much fun and took photos for us all . Fab memories l shall treasure forever . Thankyou York and team for a wonderful day .
Brilliant day out xxx
Best full day tour ever with a great and caring staff!
What a great day! Picked up from my resort at exactly the time I was quoted in a comfortable mini-van with fellow travellers. Settled onto the deck of the Red Dragon where they had spread mattresses with towels for us to recline under a shady canopy. Some of us slept and relaxed on deck while we motored out to the National Park. We had a lovely breakfast/morning tea and then our first activity was sea-kayaking around the rugged limestone islands. Everything was done so well. All snorkelling equipment was cleaned and sanitised before use and great care was taken to ensure our life jackets and snorkelling equipment fitted properly. Alternative activities were offered if you didn't want to partake in the kayaking or snorkeling. Lunch was a delight and we all fitted into the booths in the saloon to eat together. We visited a beautiful lake on one of the islands and a short hike to view. Later we were given bananas and icecream to keep us busy until sunset while we motored back to Koh Samui. Couldn't have faulted a thing. All staff were helpful and good-natured and there were plenty of helpful hands to guide you into and out of the tender and kayaks, fitting your life-vests and the right sized fins. Our little chef was the star. She produced such amazing dishes for the 16 passengers and also the crew in a tiny space, no bigger than a walk-in wardrobe! Delivered back to my resort by 8pm. Yes it was a long day, but plenty of chances to catch 40 winks. I recommend this to anyone fit enough to get on and off the vessel, to walk up stairs, and reasonably confident in the sea. The only thing I skipped was jumping off the roof into the water - getting a bit old for such things!
I highly recommend this tour. I looked at many different options before deciding on this one and was very glad I did so. The whole experience was great. My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. The staff is incredible, they really care about your experience and want to make sure you have a great time. They go out of their way to make sure your not going to locations flooded with other boats. We had all areas to our selves on the day we went. Our guide York was amazing, his energy and enthusiasm were great. The food was exceptional and the boat is very comfortable with bean bags and plenty of drinks for the day. After the tour and when we really wanted to get some pictures had difficulty receiving our email I communicated with the owner Ron, and he quickly responded and gave us a link for pictures, etc. I can't recommend this tour enough. If your looking for a comfortable day with great food and great staff, pick this tour.
This was a wonderful cruise. The Yacht was amazing, and extremely comfortable, the people were so warm and friendly and the places we went were awesome. This was the last full day of our vacation, and I would not have wanted to end any other way. I would highly recommend it to anyone who was interested.
Crew were awesome
Scenery was awesome
Food was awesome
Overall an awesome day
Great Tour, well organized, The tour Guide Ron and his daughter are super! The food on the tour fantastic. Highly recommend this tour --definitely worth the higher price in comparison to others!
This was by far my favorite part of my trip in Koh Samui. You get so many activities and sights to see for your money. The whole crew and staff were super helpful and friendly! Shout out to George for the making the trip such a great time, he was so nice and had a lot of good information. I would highly recommend doing this tour! The islands were breath taking and I got some amazing photos! Definitely go on this tour if you love adventures and sight seeing. There was snorkeling, kayaking, hiking to emerald lake and visiting a beach off the island. It was amazing!!
Like many of the other reviews, I can only echo that this trip was unequivocally worth every cent. From the punctual and seamless departure, the spacious and well appointed Yacht, the carefully planned schedule to avoid the masses to the friendly and attentive staff - everything ran perfectly, in an unhurried yet thoroughly professional manner. The food was delicious, the kayaking and snorkelling wonderful and the climb to view the emerald lake truly memorable capped off by a wonderful sunset as we returned to Koh Samui.
For anyone tossing up between this and a typical speedboat tour, don't even hesitate - I promise you won't regret it. Thanks for the wonderful day, the memories will not soon fade.
This was such a great tour.Lovely guide York made us feel at ease and the scenery was amazing.Will always remember this tour with a smile on our faces.Thank you soooo much.Awesome.
Highly recommended, Professionally handled, not rushed, As mentioned in the other reviews its a must go. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Good crew, and worth every penny.
This was a fantastic surprise. Extremely well organised.
It begins with an email the previous day, asking for the hotel details. The pickup was on time, and the minibus was extremely comfortable. The Yacht is extremely comfortable Bean bags are sprayed across the covered area for all. There are cushions laid out for folks who would like to sunbathe.
A morning snack was served around 10 30 am. Refreshments and water are on the house. Beer is available on purchase and is not very expensive. Lunch is incredible the chef was amazing. The four locations each have their charm. Snorkelling was incredible as they took us to a remote area, where the number of fishes and diversity of fishes was unparalleled. Kayakking costs 250 THB and is worth every cent. It was magical. The tour crew are extremely sweet and friendly. The magical sunset brought a perfect day to an end.
This was the highlight of our time in Koh Samui. By leaving later on a slower boat we didn't have to deal with any crowds so that many times it felt like we had the park to our self. The boat is large and nice. Bathrooms and drinks were available all day and the lunch and snacks were tasty. We splurged a bit on this tour and we are so grateful we did. We paid extra for the kayaking and if this is your thing I would highly recommend adding it on. People of all ages were on the tour and there was plenty of space for all the groups to spread out and be comfortable. It was a perfect day.
Not your usual speed boat tour. Great experience overall, though a bit slower and longer to get to the park compared to the speedboats.
