Today's Koh Chang Activity #242
Koh Chang Fishing
You don't need the best weather conditions for fishing trips to the seas off the South West coast of Koh Chang, and we're going every day throughout the high season. You can go either in the daytime, or for some evening fishing, when you'll be catching your squid to be used later as live bait. Food is provided on both trips. Mention this article from our website, and we'll discount our normal price of 1,300 Baht to 1,200 Baht per person. RRP is 1,500 Baht. Or take our Thai style fishing boat from Chai Chet for some day-time fishing, or night-time squidding - your private group for just 4,000 Baht. You can read all of our other daily recommendations here.

We have access to a small number of properties, plots of land, and boats for sale and for rent. We are only offering properties where we have personal contact with the owner and which are unlikely to be advertised on any other websites. We are not a property agent. We would work on the basis of introducing you to the seller, and we would be taking a commission from the seller only after completion of a successful transaction.
What We Do
Coco Dee Bo Tours have been in operation on Koh Chang since 2005. We have a shop on the main road at Chai Chet, where we offer all of the available tours around Koh Chang, as well as providing high speed internet access and other computer services.
We offer free advice and information about all of the activities available on Koh Chang. You can book all of the tours with us, and we can also arrange your transport on and off the island, and to the neighbouring islands of the Koh Chang archipeligo. We can make your hotel bookings around Koh Chang, on the neighbouring islands, and throughout Thailand, including Bangkok. We aim to give our customers impartial advice and accurate information prior to selling any tour or service. For example, owing to the arduous conditions on the Cambodian roads, we would advise against any family with very small children from going to Angkor Wat at Siem Reap in Cambodia.
Private speedboats and wooden Thai style boats can be chartered through us for half-day, full-day, or longer excursions. We deal with 3 of the top diving schools in operation on Koh Chang, so make Coco Dee Bo your one-stop place for making your dive reservations.
We also have high speed internet with WiFi access. WiFi is free if you buy some food or drink from our restaurant/bar/coffee shop. Otherwise you can pay for hourly, daily, or unlimited access. Do try our fresh coffee, soft and alcoholic drinks, and home prepared Thai and Western cooking at our tables in a shaded area outside the shop.
English, Thai and French languages are spoken by the owner Bo, and Colin, so you can be sure of no mis-understandings at the time of your booking. One of our customers buying from another agency told us of their experience of an "elephant trek" which turned out to be a 6 hour jungle trek by foot! More about our available tours here. You can always ask us any questions about tours and activities by sending an email to us prior to your arrival on Koh Chang.
Inside our 2 shops we have internet cafes with up to 8 modern desktop computers and TFT monitors and we also have a WiFi access point so you can use your own notebook computer from the beach close to our shop, or from the surroundings of our shop on the road. Our internet connections run at a speed of up to 2 Megabits per second, and our customers often comment that our connection speed and reliability far exceeds any others they have experienced on the island. This is maybe because we have SHDSL lines which have much lower contention than ADSL lines and much faster upstream speeds. This means your video call to your friends at home should be much clearer in sound and vision. If you bring your own notebook computer, then we can give you wireless access to our internet connection, either by the hour, or by the day, or we can give you open access for your entire stay. Attached to our computers are webcams and audio equipment, and in conjuction with the Skype, Messenger, and Voipbuster applications you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family at home. We also have some small notebook computers for rent.
