If you come to Phi Phi, I 100% recommend the activity. Don't hesitate, it's well worth it. Incredible places that you will not know if you do not do this excursion. I'm not telling anything else so you can surprise yourself.

It's a very nice outing with two excellent guides. Beautiful discoveries, great boat with the possibility of being on deck. Restaurant and meal on board very good Highly recommended

Everything was really good and crew was amazing. Only thing is that we spent a very short period of time at Maya Beach. Wish we spent more time there.

It was a wonderful trip. I am non-swimmer but I was able to see a beautiful view under the sea, snorkeling with the help of the guide ❤️

Everything was well organised and the staff were amazing!
