Full description
The early bird tour to Similan Islands will leave directly from the Yacht Haven in Phuket or Nam Kem Pier in Khaolak and takes about 1.5 hours to arrive at Island no 8. The early departure ensures you get there early enough to enjoy Donald Duck Bay, hike up the short trail to the Sail Rock, and take those amazing pictures from the viewpoint. The tour includes two long snorkeling breaks to explore the beautiful underwater world and a chance to see a sea turtle. The next stop will be Island no 4, where you can enjoy a picnic lunch near the beach at Honeymoon Bay and then take a small walk through a nature trail to the stunning beach at Princess Bay where you have time to relax and swim in the crystal clear waters. After, there will be one more snorkeling stop either at the famous Koh Bon or Similan Island depending on the weather conditions.

Great day, well organised and timed. You're split into groups (based on language) and given a coloured wristband to easily identify others in your group. The guide (Don), captain and his crew are all very friendly. Refreshments offered all day along with a good lunch. The island itself is beyond beautiful, with pure white beaches and ultra fine sand. Would be my number 1 recommendation to people visiting South Thailand.

The tour was a dream! The organization was great - everything went smoothly. The guides were funny and tried very hard (our tour was bilingual English and German, both languages were spoken fluently and understandably). The status of nature park was always taken into account - no alcohol, smoking only in certain areas and no rubbish. The equipment was clean and the food was tasty, sufficient, fresh and chilled. We were lucky at all stations and were not "struck dead" by the tourist crowds. I would go again in a heartbeat! ☺️ The Similan Islands are beautiful and definitely worth a tour!

The tour was awesome. Our guide Eck was super nice and the islands were awesome. Snorkeling was also mega as the water was so clear. Lunch was on the island and was also delicious. There was enough water for drinks and various soft drinks. There was also fruit. I highly recommend this tour!
