Privately charter Chantara junk boat for a cruise around Thailand’s wonderful Ang Thong National Marine Park for a voyage you’ll never forget. With this package you’ll enjoy exclusive use of this traditional wooden vessel for a whole day, with a full crew to ensure your time on board is truly magical.
When it comes to national parks, Thailand’s Ang Thong National Marine Park is something special. The park covers a total of 102km² in the Gulf of Thailand, and while it contains around 40 islands they make up less than 20 per cent of the area. Lush green islands, secluded coves filled with white sand and glittering blue waters make up this Vast and unspoilt, the only way to see Ang Thong’s beauty is by boat – and we’d wager that when it comes to this particular spot you can’t do any better than a traditional style wooden junk ship.
Since this is a private cruise, you’ll set the pace. You’ll be able to stop at two or three destinations along the way, ranging from kayaking to snorkelling along a coral reef to visiting an island with the most incredible vantage point for just taking it all in. You’ll also be treated to food and soft drinks throughout the day, starting with a delicious breakfast once you’ve left port.
The Chantara junk boat has been sailing these waters since the end of the last decade, and has quickly become a firm favourite with travellers visiting Koh Samui. At first glimpse you’ll note the authentic teak exterior and the distinctive red sails, but get a little closer and you’ll appreciate that the Chantara’s real beauty lies in the attention to detail that’s been lavished on her.
To avoid disappointment, secure your private cruise to Ang Thong National Marine Park on board the Chantara junk ship before you even leave home. Book with Samuipedia today – our no fuss, no hassle approach makes planning your travel itinerary a breeze.

The Chantara moved into these waters at the end of the last decade, and it’s been cutting an impressive figure around the island ever since. From the outside it is undeniably majestic.

Once you’re on board, however, you’ll find its interior exquisitely detailed and every bit as rich in traditional Thai ambience.
