Did this tour early in Jan 2018. The weather was excellent and the waters were calm . The staff on the boats were highly trained and helpful. They helped me take some great pictures. They do brief you on safety, how to keep area's clean and provide you with life jackets. A lot has been said by previous contributors which is true and things are better now when it comes to disembarking from boats.You won't get your legs wet as there are floating platforms that anchor close to your boat and with staff to give you hand.
The food provided is varied and with good selection for veggies.
My tip is to take the free water when the tour ends. This will come in very handy, especially with small kids. The journey back to the hotels can last over an hour with rush hour traffic and with AC going on in the tour bus, your throats will soon dry up. Also you will have an opportunity to purchase a see through water proof mobile phone covers which are better quality than the one's I got from Ebay.
Enjoy and take great pictures.

Phuket is a big place... if you're not in a very touristy area the pick-up wait may be long, but don't worry... it's totally worth it! The staff was awesome! Very funny! The views were spectacular! Just breath-taking! The lunch was yummy... same with the snacks! I would definitely recommend this trip!

Brilliant tour. One of the best tours i have done. The team on the boat were great, very funny and entertaining. The tour was very well organised, a good variety of transport experienced. Great photos. Great lunch on the boat and then finished by just chilling on the beach and swimming. Highly recommended. Even my wife enjoyed the canoeing experience and she doesn't normally do that sort of thing.

Great day although we missed the fishing village and snorkelling due to the boat breaking down, but what we did experience was superb. Crew were entertaining and informative, the canoe into the island and under the stalactites was amazing and James Bond Island is a must, very small island but a must for all Bond fans.

We chose this tour because you get to do a little bit of everything while seeing many of the sites. We cruised on the big boat, canoed through sea caves, we rode in a longtail boat and also got to swim on the beach. The tour was very well planned, giving us just the right amount of time at each site. All the boats used were very clean and well maintained. The lunch buffet they provided aboard the big boat was delicious! The crew were very nice, helpful and entertaining.

If you like boats then you will love this tour as you get to ride on so many different kinds of boats. Staff was very informative and friendly. After being taken to the pier you board a 2 story boat for the ride over to the bay. Bathrooms are available on board and the seating area is not enclosed, just a top cover. It's a big slow boat so if you want a faster ride over to the bay book a tour with a faster boat. If you have any sort of mobility issue I would not recommend this tour because we hopped onto various other boats from this big boat. The stairs on the boat are are also very steep, basically almost a ladder. The first floor of the boat is just a bathroom, kitchen and storage so you have to make your way upstairs for the seats. The first stop is canoeing. You don't get to paddle yourself, someone else does all the work and they set the course. It's a beautiful bay polluted only by the other hoards of canoes. Be sure to have some cash to tip the guide. Next you hop back on the big boat that takes you to James Bond island. The boat is too big to take you directly to the island so you hop over on a long tail boat. You might get your feet wet getting off the long-tail boat if you can't jump from the boat onto the sand. Getting back on the long tail boat means using not the most stable looking ladder and walking on the edge of the boat see pictures. Good luck handling this if you have small children with you. Next is Panyi island which I wish the tour had skipped. If someone went thru the trouble of building this floating island way out there why would they open it up to tourists? The living conditions are poor, it smells, there's flies all around, you aren't allowed to go into the church and the soccer field is a concrete slab with a field painted on it. I couldn't wait to leave. Lunch was served back on the big boat and there was a variety of dishes some of which were vegetarian friendly. Drinks were available throughout the whole tour for free. Last stop was relaxing at a beach which we got to by again, hopping onto another smaller boat. We could borrow the tours canoes and take a ride on them by ourselves for free.

Would recommend. Full day with lots of variety. The canoe ride was exciting, it was high tide and to enter the grottos we had to lay flat to negotiate under the caves entrances. Really impressive. James Bond island was busy , as you would expect, nice views and good photo opportunities. Muslin floating village an eyeopener, bit grim. Naka beach nice to swim ,although again quite busy. Lunch on boat excellent and crew fantastic so friendly and helpful. Just check if you have to pay a transfer fee from hotel to port and also deckchairs on beach about 150 baht plus drinks on offer, so take some extra cash.

Plus:
Amazing views, especially inside islands with the canoes
Koh Panyee water village, James Bond Island. Just things that are nice to see with your own eyes.
Nice staff, funny guide with magic tricks
Good thai food.
Minus:
We had pickup set on 7am in email, and fax sent to the hotel. Nobody showed up for almost 1.5h, we could not call the company on any of provided numbers, no response on emails. Driver finally showed up about 8:20 showing us pickup information with different time: 8:15. Nobody even apologized for the mistake afterwards. We're used to much more professional approach from companies found on viator.
Couple of 'hidden costs' during the trip: national park entrance fee, waterproof bag for our stuff, you're put on the spot to give a tip we usually do, but after morning pickup adventure we didn't feel like tipping them.
Guides with poor english.

Overall very good day, but I think there are other companies with virtually same trip. Maybe they are more professional.

poorly organised, compared to the speedboat tour we went on 2 days prior it would be hard to recommend anyone wasting a whole day with this tour company and tour
