Koh Samui diving at the Marine Park and Koh Tao: Every Sunday we have a very unique tour for divers that combines two destinations in one tour: sightseeing and one dive at the world famous Angthong Marine National Park. After that another dive at the reefs of Koh Tao / Koh Nang Yuan. This is an island-, diving- and snorkeling-tour like you won’t find any other to compare with on Koh Samui. Only with our fast and comfortable catamaran this tour can be done in just one day.
In the morning – after a journey of about 60 minutes – the catamaran will arrive right in the center of the marine park. Starting here we go for a relaxing cruise towards north between the park’s spectacular limestone cliffs. Our target is the northernmost island of the marine park: Koh Yippun.
This island is surrounded by nutritious waters and gives a big variety of marine creature a perfect living environment. Furthermore, Koh Yippon is a treasure box for all those divers who like to watch out for “macro” – nudibranchs, crustaceans and several critters.
Around 10 am we will leave the marine park and head off to Koh Tao after about one hour. Having arrived there, we first have our lunch break. The second dive will be at some of Koh Nang Yuan’s attractive dive sites: Japanese Garden, Twin Peaks, Green Rock, No Name or Red Rock. This tour is also ideal for snorkelers and discover Scuba divers.
Our catamaran “Mintra”, which we are using for this tour, has a large dive deck with for wide exits. Right next to the comfortable “fin ladders” on each entrance there are fresh water showers. Putting on and off diving equipment becomes an easy thing at our large diving benches. Apart from the dive deck, there is also a “flying bridge” with additional seats, a sun deck where sun bathing is possible, a saloon with even more seats and seats in the bow of the boat. On top of this there are also two restrooms on the boat.
Beverages are provided on board: coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water and soft drinks. After departure you’ll have breakfast on the boat and for lunch we serve variety of delicious Thai foods. On the way back to Koh Samui we serve cake and fresh fruit.

My partner and I booked the 2IN1 Sunday diving trip last week. We were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Pick up and transfer to the port ran very smoothly in a comfortable mini bus and the boat was new, very clean and spacious. Our guide (Remy) was very friendly and the dives were beautiful and everything ran smoothly, he took some great photos and videos of us and the marine life which we were able to purchase at the end of the trip. The equipment used was all great quality which made ascending and descending very easy.
Unfortunately the weather turned on the way home which caused for a rocky ride back however that was unpredictable. Overall, the trip was great and Calypso Diving crew were very accommodating. The abundance of food served was great too.
