This was a fantastic experience for us as first time scuba divers! Our guide was very knowledgeable, took lots of time to explain equipment and the diving process, and made sure we were safe and felt comfortable during our time in the water. This trip is definitely geared towards those who want to scuba dive and they have multiple options for those with different experience levels. Each person or group gets their own personal guide for the day. The ocean life was beautiful! On board the ship, the food was delicious and perfect for the day's activities. Extremely pleased with the day we had with this company!

Over all this is a nice tour, but I would only recommend if you are doing the diving! The tour is definitely geared towards the divers, which is great. But if you are looking to just do some snorkeling you might want to look into a tour that just does snorkeling! The tour guides and staff were fantastic, so nice and accommodating and the diver guides are specific to the language you speak! Also we were impressed by the amount of food you get, we were not hungry! Our pick up/drop off was also smooth and on time.

My family loved this trip! The boat was well equipped and included a tasty breakfast and lunch. The staff was friendly. There were plenty of activities to keep us entertained all day. Racha Yai Island is absolutely beautiful. When I booked, GetYourGuide stated that diving was an option but there was not a place to say we wanted to book it, so I assumed we could on that day. That was not the case; the boat staff needs to know beforehand so you will need to contact the company directly if you want to do that. Luckily we were able to get in one dive due to the flexibility of the diving staff.
