Watersports on Samui

Watersports are extensively available on Koh Samui, an island surrounded by smaller Islands and a clear blue crystal sea. The choice is varied and large. It is a good idea to enquire about insurance cover.

Jet Ski
Jet skis can be hired on many of the larger beaches. This gives an opportunity for you to ride the waves and see the island from a very different perspective.


SnorkellingSnorkellers can accompany their diving companions on scuba dive trips, take a tour organised for snorkellers, a trip arranged by local fishermen to one of the many surrounding islands, or just snorkel from the beaches and rock formations dotted around the Island.Either way, the beauty of the coral and fish that can be seen through your mask is great.


Equipment can be hired from several water sports centres in Chaweng, Bophut, Maenam, Lamai and Big Buddha.
Windsurfing equipment is available for rent from several watersport centres such as Sa-ards Watersports around the island. Lessons are available for beginner adults and children. Prices start from 300 baht per hour for equipment rental and from 500 baht for a one hour individual lesson (equipment included).


KayakingKayaks / Sea Canoes can be hired on some of the beaches. They are very stable and easy to use. Several companies offer guided day trip tours to the nearby Angthong National Marine Park, where you can paddle through coral gardens and limestone islands. Alternatively you can hire a canoe by the hour and paddle along Samui's coastline.


Fishing toursFishing tours from small fry to deep sea can be booked with a few fishing tour operators such as Sea Power Fishing Tours or local fishermen. You can also rent or buy fishing equipment if you prefer to fish off Samui's shores.


Sailing boats such as a Laser or Hobie Cat 16, can be rented by the hour or half day from a few water sports centres. Some of the larger hotels provide their own sailing boats free of charge and there are also yacht charter companies available.


Banana boatBanana boat rides are available on Chaweng, Lamai and Bophut beaches.
