We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the boat's drop-off point. Our guide explained the details of our island tour in good English and we had enough free time on the four islands to swim / snorkel, take photos and lie in the sun. The lunch, which was included in the price, was plentiful and good; this was served before the longer bathing stay on the last of the four islands. However, it should be noted that the fee for the visit to the national park (400, - Bath per person) has to be paid separately before starting the boat trip. Overall, it was a nice and interesting day that we really enjoyed. We can recommend this activity with a clear conscience.

Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.

The incredible tour ... the spectacular beaches and the wonderful sunset ... the only thing the plankton if you do not go under the water from outside is not seen.

I highly recommend this tour, you can see a little bit of everything in the Krabi region. Great for all ages.

Friendly staff and very nice tour, we had enough time to join the places with no rush. Very beautiful.
