My 11-year-old son and I had a fantastic day on the cruise. We enjoyed the kayaking (and the helpful tow along when little arms got tired), saw loads of fish snorkeling, enjoyed the great food (and plenty of it!), and we're really well attended to all day. The tour guide (owner?) did a brilliant job of including all different abilities, and was friendly and helpful all day. The boat itself was really comfortable, with floor mats to lie back on and chill for the journey out and back. I'd thoroughly recommend this tour!

I came on a trip alone. Everything was low and awkward, but I could enjoy the trip thanks to the kind guide. I wanted to enjoy more snorkeling, but I couldn't because of the jellyfish. I was scared because it rained heavily on the way back

Fantastic trip to the marine National Park! - great and friendly staff - beautiful views and experiences that felt exclusive and offered a unique adventure to the pristine islands of the park It is a must wheb visiting Koh Samui!

Great boat trip with super nice organizers. The boat was well equipped. The kayaking, snorkeling, and walk to the view point were a lot of fun. The sunset at the end was super beautiful.

Great experience, was a very small group, saw very beautiful islands, very little going on right now! That's fun ! Everything as expected! Gladly again!
