A fantastic day that was enjoyed emmensly by my family and I. Our guide Kate, was super sweet and helpful. Pig island is one of the most idyllic and surreal places I have ever had the fortune to visit. The pigs were so lovely and incredibly friendly! And the island itself is like something out of Robinson Crusoe! My wife says it is the most beautiful places she has ever been and she has travelled the world extensively and I cannot disagree. There wasn't a massive amount to see when snorkeling, but it was lovely all the same. The trip to Koh Tan was jaw-droppingly beautiful and the lunch on the far side of the island was authentic Thai and absolutely delicious! Our boat Captain was the Ayrton Senna of Koh Samui and would chase down every boat. WE ARE UNDEFEATED!! Kate was a super kind young lady who made us all feel very welcome. We had a truly wonderful day, full of memories that we will never forget. If ever I feel down in the future, I will transcendentally meditate to Pig island❤

It was great, our tourguide Art was the best we ever hat. The Tour was also a cool experience, we learned and saw a Ton of Things. It was also very safe.
