We were a private group of 40 on the junk and all participants without an exception rated the day as 5 stars! The boat is really typical, beautiful and comfortable for 40.

This was one of the most incredible experiences to date! The most romantic, beautiful, breathtaking experience. So relaxing sitting on the deck of this beautiful, charming boat, and watching the sunset - highly recommended. We thought that would be where it ended, but the food was the best food we have eaten on our entire trip to Thailand (I'm not... More

A smooth operation from start to finish. Professionally run and definitely worth the money in our opinion. We're so glad we went with Chantara!

Yess! Great experience for me and my gf!!! We've been sailing with Chantara Junk boat for an incredible new experience in the warm waters of Koh Samui archipelago. Chantara is a traditional burmese wood boat, beautiful as a sculpture or an artwork, and enjoyable as the hospitality of the Captain and the crew was. Half day was sunny, half day... More

Chantara Junk Boat tour offers a fabulous day out, cruising around the entire coast of Koh Phangan. The tour begins with hotel pick up at about 10.30 and takes you to the port. As the Chatara was out of the water having some work done, we were on the Siamtara which is used for their private tours and is lovely!... More

During the cruise, the crew offers soft drink and an excellent Thai lunch is... More

Highly recommend this boat trip if you are staying in Samui. Marco and his crew did all they could to make the day memorable. The trip takes you from Samui around and to the island of koh phangan. We were only able to do one side of the island due to rough seas predicted, however to make up for this... More

We made a last minute booking through our hotel but were picked up promptly from our hotel & taken to the boat. Boat itself was gorgeous, full of character and authentic. We all felt immediately comfortable and at home as we set off. Our host Marco was great - really personal service, taking time to speak to everyone to explain... More

From the hotel pick up, day on the water and return transfers, we were looked after like stars. The Chantara crew couldn't have been more helpful. Lunch had plenty of choice for all. Although the winds prevented us from snorkelling at Ko Mah, another suitable place was made available. Transfer to the beach for an afternoon swim was also appreciated.... More
