    The tour was fine, not much to see during snorkeling. Lunch was average.

    Rating 3 stars as the tour was very different from what was mentioned in the description of the tour. We were picked up promptly and taken to Chalong pier. Meeting point had coffee and cookies. We were given briefing about the tour. Description mentioned 2 snorkeling oppportunities at Ter Bay and Kon Kare Bay. However our guide took us to Patok Bay where we snorkeled. The reef was dead and there were few fishes. Description mentioned that lunch will be organized at a hotel where there is pool but it was organized at a different place. Stopped by at Coral Island on the way back for about 2 hours. It is a nice island where you can do various water sport activities. We primarily took the tour as we were told that snorkeling at Racha is better than Phi-Phi but Patok Bay was more or less similar. We have been told, it would have been better if we were snorkeling on the easter side at Kon Kare Bay.
