Less crowded than Green Island. Tour company was great. Get snorkel gear and head opposite Nudey beach which is crowded. Lunch option was tasty. Showers on island. Glass bottom boat can be skipped as you can't really see anything. Ferry fills up fast. SUP and kayak also available. SUNSCREEN!

The operator is Raging Thunder.
1. When everyone was getting on board for the return trip, the captain accused me using one ticket for two persons. He yelled loudly to order my to sit down to wait until all passengers got on board, then will deal with me as a caught criminal After everyone got on board, he signalled me to go, with no explanation how he go confused nor how he figured it out, not a word of apology - the rudest person I have ever seen in this tourist service industry after I had experience traveling most part of this world.
2. During the going trip, the cabin was filled with smell of gasoline. The captain did not do anything to correct the problem. During the return trip, the left engine failed and the cabin increasingly filled with strong smell of gasoline. Many passengers felt unwell. Good sense in maintenance could have avoided such problem.
