Longtail SUP Tour to Five Islands

Virgin Coast Samui Longtail Tour

Come paddling with us on the Virgin Coast of Samui.  There’s not much here except for long sandy beaches, clear water, sleepy fishing villages, a few private villas and a couple of resorts. Most tourists don’t even realise this peaceful side of Samui exists.

The Five Islands (known as Koh Si Koh Ha in Thai) are about 5km offshore from the South West corner of Koh Samui.  The islands are known for their famous nests which are the main ingredient in birds’ nest soup.  The only inhabitants out here are the Sea Gypsies who live in small wooden homes perched on the rocky islands and protect the birds.

Long Tail SUP Tour to Five Islands

We start the tour with a private Longtail boat out to the Five Islands.  There’s time for snorkelling and maybe a swim with the local turtle.  If the conditions are good we paddle around the islands.  Also on the way back we paddle along one of the most beautiful coastlines of Samui, often referred to as the ‘Virgin Coast’.

Tour cost 

2,200 Baht per person (without transfers), minimum 2 people.  We suggest you bring another 500 Baht per person for lunch and drinks after the Longtail SUP Tour.  Depending on your location, we can also assist with transfers from your villa/resort.
