Oceania Exclusive Tour

For those travelers who prefer an added measure of intimacy and flexibility, we are pleased to offer our new Oceania Exclusive tours. With a minimum of 10 guests and a maximum capacity of just 16 guests, each tour benefits from a higher level of personal attention and the added flexibility and agility that come from traveling in a small group.

Oceania Exclusive tours are available for a specially selected number of tours in almost every port we visit, in every corner of the world.

Experience a truly unique lifestyle and culture during this half-day visit to Koh Samui, the Island of Coconuts.

Depart the ship for the tender ride ashore and begin your tour with a scenic coastal drive past exquisite beaches and lush coconut plantations en route to Koh Samui, which is located off the northern shore of Samui on a small rocky island accessible by a causeway.

Your first stop will be made at the Big Buddha Temple, or Wat Pha Yai. The Big Buddha Temple features a 36-foot golden statue perched atop a wide staircase decorated with dragons. The statue of Buddha is visible from several miles away, and creates an impressive silhouette against the sea and sky behind it. Surrounding the Buddha, you will find a number of meditation huts, or kutis, along with several striking golden statues and shops.

After your Big Buddha Temple visit, you will continue on to the Island Safari, with two stops en route. The first stop will be at the Plai Laem Temple and the second at a scenic viewpoint overlooking the beautiful Chaweng Beach.

The Island Safari, one of the newest attractions on Samui, offers a fascinating glimpse into the amazing skill and training of elephants, and the daily duties they help perform on the island. From here, it’s on to Nora Beach Resort for a delicious buffet lunch.

After lunch, you will visit a local home and coconut plantation to explore how the islanders live and work. During your visit, you will learn how the pig-tailed monkeys found on the island are domesticated, and trained to pick ripe coconuts. This centuries-old tradition certainly comes in handy as Koh Samui, the Island of Coconuts, produces over three million coconuts per month. You will observe the exceptional abilities of these entertaining creatures, along with their amusing antics.

Following your tour, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to the pier and ship.

Please note: The tour provides a basic introduction to Ko Samui. Tour buses and guides will be brought over from the mainland in order to provide the best service and quality possible. A moderate amount of walking is involved. Comfortable lightweight clothing and walking shoes are recommended. The temple visit requires appropriate dress: no cut-offs, sleeveless shirts, etc. will be permitted.
