Meet The Dolphins

Our very special neighbors at Intercontinental® Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort are the famous pink dolphins, a subspecies of the Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphin. The Resort’s private speedboat will take you directly to some of the dolphins’ favorite spots off of the coast of Khanom on the Thai mainland. Here you’ll be able to feed them directly from the boat as they surface and frolic with their playful cousins, the Irrawaddy dolphins. Both types of dolphins are extremely rare and facing conservation threats. After your trip to meet the dolphins, you’ll head to Koh Tan Island for some fantastic snorkeling among massive coral reef formations.

In the afternoon, you can experience game fishing and catch some of the giants of the sea.
