We did the 4 day sailing trip around Ang Thon Marine Park with Alf and Frank and had the best time. Alf is a great captain and you feel totally safe the whole time. Frank is super as well, and he is an amazing chef. I can't believe how well we ate when we were on that boat. The accomodations... More

We did the 4 day joint sailing trip to the Marine Park and had a wonderful experience. The pick-up from the hotel is reliable, comfortable and easy. We were brought to the boat and were able to leave our big bags with the office and thus only take our day packs aboard - very convenient and free of charge just... More

The four of us had a blast sailing on the Hobie Cat for a few hours one afternoon. Would be a great way to explore the island too if we had rented for longer. Alf was really nice and helped us rig up the boat before setting off. I would only really recommend renting if you have some prior sailing... More

We met Frank by chance when we went for a swim on one of the beaches on the back side of the island, and if it wasn't for that, there is a fair to good chance I would have completely missed the shop. Alf was super helpful getting the boat sorted and recommendations of places to visit. I would recommend... More

We met Alf through a mutual friend who also owns a sailboat and was instantly intrigued about his sailing travels across the world. I know close to nothing about sailing but felt absolutely safe and secure sailing with Alf (and his partner, Frank) - I mean who wouldn't, this man sailed the Pacific! We took the boat out around midday... More

It was our best day in the island We went out with the "Freedom Fargo", it is a beautiful and easy sailing boat. We sailed our way out the main bay and we headed to a really quiet and small bay were we went for our first snorkeling session. Alf and Frank gave us tips to fully enjoy it. Alf... More

First session of teaching was at a table out on the roadside, The office had a boat in it for repair. Frank was "sick"? So we got Alf, who clearly would rather have been working on the boat. He chatted for an hour and a half rather randomly, not sure what he was supposed to cover, kept having another go... More

Diving, cave exploring, climbing, photography, dining, conversation, sailing, all first rate. Could not have asked for better, more fulfilling experience. Almost forgot, and singing with Alf. If you want a totally peaceful get-away, this is it. We were there in January 2016.

A few friends of mine few into Thailand for a 5 day sailing class "competent crew". We had sailed some before so it was good to get 5 days of solid practice on the boat. Alf the captain was incredibly knowledgeable and has sailed around the world. Sailing the islands around Koh tao are beautiful, and if you get the... More

I spent 10 days in Thailand last December. I spent weeks researching motorized yacht and sailing yacht tours in both the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand before coming across the Freedom Fargo on Trip Advisor. Alf, the skipper, got some pretty high marks from all of the reviewers on this site, although most were European and Asian, so... More
