The hotel was also contacted for pick-up, and I was able to participate in the tour with peace of mind because of the good consideration. Fruits, cola and water were distributed during the embarkation, and light meals were prepared before and after the embarkation, and the contents were fulfilling from beginning to end.

Superb experience! The transfer took place from Karon Beach (Phuket) very early in the morning. But the trip was really worth it (2 hours by road + 1 hour by boat). Incredible excursion, transparent and blue water, full of fish at the snorkeling points. Breakfast + lunch + snacks + drinks provided. I recommend 100%

It was an amazing experience, we had a great small group and out guide Kim was incredible. she taught us a lot about Thailand culture and took us to eat local food. Great value of money. We recommend it definitely ;)

The best tour I had when I was in Thailand. The beach is simply amazing. The Guides were very professional and organized. The boat was very clean.

The team on the boat were amazing and easily understandable with there English. Will definitely recommend this experience.
