Easy to organise and perfect for those not planning to stay very long on Koh Phangan or just
want to take a quick look around the island before deciding where to stay on longer. Boat trips can be arranged at most resorts and will leave late morning. Common itineraries
for pre-arranged tours include Than Sadet waterfall
, Thong Nai Pan
, Haad Khuat
(Bottle Beach), Koh Ma and Koh Tae Nok. If you are in a group, it is also possible to rent
the boat for a day and arrange your own itinerary, but expect to pay a lot more. The boat will either be a traditional longtail or speedboat which will probably be able
to take you further afield such as the Marine Park or Koh Tao.
Any deal should include lunch and other essential supplies. Be aware of the sun and wear a hat and a healthy layer of sun
lotion or risk feeling the affects of heatstoke later on as most trips leave about mid-day.
