Great trip. Picked up on time. The boat was comfortable, with bean bags, hot tub with seawater which was lots of fun.
The food was excellent. York and the rest of team were great. York in particular really went out of his way to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves, including turning the boat round to pick up one of the guys hats that had fallen in the water!
Myself and one of the other girls were worried about snorkelling, so he suggested we went in a kind of dingy, where we could look over the side, and not miss this adventure, which we did! thanks York.
It is a little more expensive than other trips, but worth the extra ,especially when you can see these beautiful places with out the crowds, basically getting the place to yourself.
DONT MISS IT but just prepare yourself as it is a LONG DAY! we set off at 9am from our hotel, and arrived back at 8.15pm!
Booked the Classic Thai Yachts Sunset Boutique Cruise after seeing the reviews on the website, it is every bit as good as everyone says . Our trip got cancelled because of bad weather but they let us know in plenty of time and rearranged no problem to a couple of days later . We were on the small boat just 14 of us . Our guide York and our captain saw that we had an amazing day by telling us all about the Islands and looking after us so well . The food cooked by a lovely lady who l am sorry to say l cannot remember her name !! was delicious. We had fun in the jacuzzi, snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming on a beautiful beach and then York guided us up the steps to see the Blue Lagoon , he made it so much fun and took photos for us all . Fab memories l shall treasure forever . Thankyou York and team for a wonderful day .
What a great day! Picked up from my resort at exactly the time I was quoted in a comfortable mini-van with fellow travellers. Settled onto the deck of the Red Dragon where they had spread mattresses with towels for us to recline under a shady canopy. Some of us slept and relaxed on deck while we motored out to the National Park. We had a lovely breakfast/morning tea and then our first activity was sea-kayaking around the rugged limestone islands. Everything was done so well. All snorkelling equipment was cleaned and sanitised before use and great care was taken to ensure our life jackets and snorkelling equipment fitted properly. Alternative activities were offered if you didn't want to partake in the kayaking or snorkeling. Lunch was a delight and we all fitted into the booths in the saloon to eat together. We visited a beautiful lake on one of the islands and a short hike to view. Later we were given bananas and icecream to keep us busy until sunset while we motored back to Koh Samui. Couldn't have faulted a thing. All staff were helpful and good-natured and there were plenty of helpful hands to guide you into and out of the tender and kayaks, fitting your life-vests and the right sized fins. Our little chef was the star. She produced such amazing dishes for the 16 passengers and also the crew in a tiny space, no bigger than a walk-in wardrobe! Delivered back to my resort by 8pm. Yes it was a long day, but plenty of chances to catch 40 winks. I recommend this to anyone fit enough to get on and off the vessel, to walk up stairs, and reasonably confident in the sea. The only thing I skipped was jumping off the roof into the water - getting a bit old for such things!
My wife and I had a fantastic time on the sunset cruise. Absolutely breathtaking sights. We sailed on a cloudy/choppy day, but we all still had a great time. The guides were friendly and informative, the food was simple and delicious and the boat was well maintained. Our hotel pickup was on time even a bit early and the drive to the boat was smooth. The dock where you board is in a pretty dilapidated construction area along a river. It sets the cruise off on an odd note, but you quickly forgive it once you're out on the open water. The snorkeling equipment was clean and high quality. The kayaks were also great. The Mae Koh Island Lagoon was an incredible vantage point, but anyone with mobility issues might have trouble with the VERY vertical stairs to get to the top! In general, we all felt very taken care of. I highly recommend. BRING SUNSCREEN! IT'S A LONG DAY IN THE SUN! haha
I highly recommend this tour. I looked at many different options before deciding on this one and was very glad I did so. The whole experience was great. My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. The staff is incredible, they really care about your experience and want to make sure you have a great time. They go out of their way to make sure your not going to locations flooded with other boats. We had all areas to our selves on the day we went. Our guide York was amazing, his energy and enthusiasm were great. The food was exceptional and the boat is very comfortable with bean bags and plenty of drinks for the day. After the tour and when we really wanted to get some pictures had difficulty receiving our email I communicated with the owner Ron, and he quickly responded and gave us a link for pictures, etc. I can't recommend this tour enough. If your looking for a comfortable day with great food and great staff, pick this tour.
