The trip was more or less as described apart from the fact that things weren't done in the order listed on the itinerary. In terms of activities apart from sailing, these were very limited, we set sail at about 10.30. There was one hour on James Bond Island 12.00 to 13.00 which was quite enough as it is absolutely rammed with tourists and once you've taken photos of the rock featured in the movie there's little else to do. Lunch on the boat followed this, which was delicious and we couldn't fault it. Then a small sail to where we canoed, this was fun although you are only passengers and it lasted all of 20 minutes. Then another small sail for some more canoeing into a cave 25 minutes which was fun but not great if you are claustrophobic as you have to lie flat in the boat as you sail for 5 minutes into the cave. After this it was just gone 4pm and we sailed back to the quay where we disemabarked about 16.40. So just over 4 hours are spent on the boat and around 2 hours off it. The journey to and from the boat quay is a long one, we were picked up at 7.20 arrived at the quay about 9.10 then had to wait 40 minutes before we embarked. Going home the mini bus journey took slightly longer due to traffic and we arrived at our hotel around 18.30, so a lot of time travelling which is not mentioned in the itinerary.
This was a wonderful trip. Very good company who cared about their guest. Started for us at 7am for pickup. The worst part of the trip. Had to pick up 8 more guest and drive the morning rush to the docks. All went well all guest were on time so no extra waiting. Made it to the docks by 9am, held up waiting for the rest of the pick up vans, but they offered coffee and cookies and a nice sitting area to waste the time with wifi. Headed to the boat at 9:40 and was off. First trip was 45 minutes to the national park area. Great weather pleasant trip all the views coming closer. Arrived by the mountainous structures and time to board the kayaks. Easy for anyone, any weight any age. Your own personal guide takes you into the caves, no need to paddle yourself. He also takes pictures of you and your friend, wife or husband. Really nice guys. They take you to 2 different caves second one bigger than the first. While we are kayaking they are preparing lunch on the boat so by the time you are back from the kayak the food is laid out. Plenty of it, regular, vegan and special religious diet. Then on to John Bond Island for a walk around then a open water swim. On our boat they asked us back at 2pm and we had one woman who did not understand or did not care and everyone had to wait on her for 45 minutes. Was a bad situation because the schedule was being changed so it was tilting towards we would lose our swim time. Once she returned costing her 500 baht for a long tail boat to bring her to the big boat cause the big boat only has X amount of time there, the staff decided the schedule would go on with out any changes and we would just return 1 hour late. They were great about it, everyone was happy and I am sure everyone had a great time. These boats are filled with people from dozens or more countries all speaking different languages. It is really a nice trip, safe, fun, plenty of time for pictures and just a 5 star event
