While most travellers tend to visit Ang Thong Marine Park by tour from Ko Samui, you can also do the trip from Ko Pha Ngan with Orion Boat Trips who get excellent reviews for their comfy boat and relaxed attitudes. If you're travelling with kids they'll love the slide at the back of the boat. Trips start at 09:00 from Ban Tai and you're back on Ko Pha Ngan around 18:00-18:30 in the evening. The trip costs 1,700 baht per person, or 1,900 baht if you’d like to do kayaking as well.
