The tour is definitely worth it. I was picked up directly from the hotel pier (Centara Grand Beach Resort) and we took the longtail boat to Rawai beach and the other islands. There was ample free time and a very good lunch with a view on the beach. It was a small group of only 7 people, the guide also took good care of everything. We watched the sunset on an island with a snack (sandwich) and then went snorkeling at night. You have to know that when there is a full moon and therefore more light, not so much underwater can be seen, but from a distance from the boat ;)

Wow what an experience, you need to book this! We had the time of our life, it’s basically an all day snorkelling trip that pushes you outside your comfort zone with open sea snorkelling and snorkelling in the pitch black night! Our guide Heem was absolutely amazing, friendly, knowledgable and made me feel safe at all times when snorkelling! The best parts of the tour is the open sea snorkelling where we saw the coral reefs with water snakes puffer fish etc, watching the sunset in the middle of the ocean, night snorkelling and all the breathtaking views! Be aware that the plankton aren’t going to be as bright as you see on pictures in google but nevertheless is a breathtaking one time experience regardless.
