We had a super early pick up on the day, 6am, but the ride was pleasant. I think we were the first to arrive at the pier. There was a simple breakfast after registration and an hour's wait for the other arrivals before getting in the boat for a 20 minute ride to Maiton Island. The sea was slightly choppy, we had another 10 min boat ride round to the other side of the island for a spot of snorkelling. Unfortunately the coral was quite tired looking, not colourful anymore. There were other boats too but enough room so it didn't seem crowded. A good spread of lunch and the team was very friendly and hospitable! We had another hour or more of leisure and more snorkelling after lunch. A lovely day out altogether!
The guide was not much of a tour guide. She did not share any information about any of the activities, other than where to go and what time to meet. We chose to do skip the ATV activity, and we just sat around after lunch waiting for the other tour members to finish their ATV activity before we all zip lined together. The zip lines are very low and short; great for young children but not zipping along the treetops as advertised.
They were very accomodating. If you didn't want to do one activity, they'll give you more time on the other activities so you can get your money's worth! Warning: IF YOU DONT WANT TO GET WET, DONT CHOOSE THIS. Common sense, people. We had some tourists get mad for getting wet. Go home. They will be splashing water to each other for fun. Please expect that.
It was ok, nothing really special. We had just a spot to snorkel, at the beginning and it was beautiful. The rest was just watch some monkeys from the boat, same classic food buffet menu for lunch, watch Viking cave from the boat, a nice swim in a lagoon and the last place Khao really awful. At the end 3.5 stars would be the rate, considered the high price
Atât transportul până la port cât și excursia în sine au fost ok si foarte bine organizate. Ghizii au fost super și să nu mai vorbim de peisajele văzute:de vis! Desi am facut mult pe drum(de la hotel la port) totul a meritat pe deplin. Să nu mai vorbim de snorkeling unde am putut vedea într-adevăr corali vii si pești minunați.
