Incredible. Would highly recommend. The crew were brilliant, could not give you enough food and drinks. They tried so hard to make us all have the best day out and we did. Well organised, on time. The boat was super comfortable. Can't rave about the crew enough they were exceptional. All the stops were great, we loved the snorkeling and seeing the monkeys, and the blue lagoon was glorious.
This tour was absolutely amazing, and my favorite part of our two week trip to Thailand. We went snorkeling in two different spots and ended up seeing five reef sharks! We went swimming off the islands, and took a tour around. This was an adventurous and beautiful tour. The tour guide was amazing! Would do this again.
Our boat was way too crowded and I didn't like that they only gave you 1 towel to last the entire tour even though you make several stops at the beach and various snorkeling sites. My towel was soaked after the 1st stop so I'm glad we brought our own towels. Our guides were friendly though, but I felt like we were in a herd of cattle the entire day.
Absolutely AMAZING! 10/10 recommend doing the early bird tour. Hotel pickup was right on time. They will confirm the time with you the day before via email. Ours was at 4:45 AM. We got to the loading area and had a light continental breakfast coffee, tea, danish, toast, cheese, small sandwiches, juice and the opportunity to get things at various gift shops that would be useful on the trip. We picked up our snorkel fins and set off. The boat ride took about 1 hour and we stopped in the middle to watch the sunrise over some islands. The sunrise was so beautiful and tranquil. The boat is very fast, so be prepared. We first went to Maya Bay. When you get off the boat, go immediately back to the short three minute walk across the island. The best views are from the back and it can get croweded as other boats arrive. BIG TIP - wear good water shoes. I recommend Chacos. You have to walk through a lot of shallow water and its very very rocky. Once you see the back side of Maya Bay then explore the front. After this we did some touring of islands via the boat the tide was too shallow to dock and then made our way to lunch. Lunch was amazing. Super great food mostly Thai but some American and good opportunity to lay out and get some rays. After lunch we went snorkeling and saw some shark and cool fish. Then docked at a beach, went back, did snorkeling, docked at a beach and made our trip home. The whole time we were on the boat there were snacks, water, and soda available as well as a fresh fruit assortment. Ice cream was provided when you got back to the loading area. They kept you very well fed and hydrated during this journey. Our tour guide, Tuk, knew so much about the islands and their history. It was a very informative tour. I really suggest the sunrise, you beat a lot of the crowds and the view are breathtaking. It was early, but well worth it!
Driver was approx. 20 minutes late arriving at hotel. Tour operator tried to tell me I had only booked one person when, in fact, I booked two. I had to show two forms of proof, which included a copy of the invoice and the charge to my credit card. Breakfast was very basic and rushed. The island was beautiful but over run by boats and tourists, especially the signature photo they show you of the inlet. They bring you there in the morning when the sun isn't anywhere near the beach. Wouldn't say I regretted going, but it was a long day and not quite as nice as pictured.
This is THE trip to do ... you are well looked after by TUK and crew... its is early but worth it .... we had the most amazing time and experience on this trip .... if you go on another later trip you will regret it ...
we got on PHI PHI island when not busy and were able to put our towels down and relax ... you cant do this if you leave it until later ....
book this one you will not regret it x
