Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 179 reviews

In total it was a great experience and I would instantly rebook it, if I am visiting Phuket again with other friends. Although there have been more people on the boat, than I expected there was more than enough space for everybody. It's a perfect trip to meet up with other visitors and get to know people. The staff was more than just friendly and always trying to deliver the perfect experience. The islands and snorkel spots where really nice and we had enough time everywhere. Especially at the second spot where we snorkeled from the boat, the water was incredibly clear, even as a diver I have never seen such perfect water before! If you are thinking about a boat tour in Phuket, take this one, it is not as touristy as a lot of the Speedboat tours to the most crowded beaches ever.

Unfortunately, the included pick up from our hotel didn't work out. We should pay an additional 1000 baht for both of us for the taxi to the catamaran departure point. We then canceled. Heike and Bernd, 11/30/22
