Mermaid Cruises was established in 2004 and is the oldest continuously operating boat tour company in the region.
To ensure the high quality of our cruises and comfort of our guests, we are a hands-on, ecologically aware and self-sufficient company providing all our services through our own local full-time staff.
Our personnel includes 3 highly experienced, full-time qualified captains/crew and 2 resident cooks.
We are the only boat tour company that operates from its own private marina, including shaded seating areas as well as bathroom, refreshment and restaurant facilities on the waterfront.
Private moorings are also available for rent.
In addition, we have our own modern, comfortable air-conditioned minibus to carry our customers to and from our cruises.
Previously featured on Thai TV and recommended by The Rough Guide to Thailand.
We are the only company in Thailand and the entire region to design, build and operate environmentally friendly electric-powered boats for its cruises – no emissions, no pollution, no noise!
