Picked up at 5.40 a.m. in Patong, 2 hours to Khao Lak, check in, breakfast, then 2 hours by speedboat, hard hits, half the staff was wet. Visit to the Moken village, apparently lunch and swimming, then continued to 3 snorkeling spots, they were very good, there were Nemo fish too. Then it went back 2 hours, there was something to eat and a 2-hour drive to Patong. On the way the food with drinks and fruit was very good. Altogether I was on the road for 14 hours, very long and expensive, but very good.

The transport picked up at the agreed time from the hotel. Upon arrival, we received a checkin number against which we received snorkeling equipment and a small breakfast. The journey to the Suri Islands was bumpy, the sea was quite rough, but the experienced driver managed the job nicely all the way there. Snorkeled in a couple of places and had a Buffa meal. Absolutely lovely islands, I recommend.

Far exceeded expectations, transfer on time, extremely well organised, 3 meals provided all excellent quality, Latte was the best guide, so enthusiastic and funny. Exceptional snorkelling and we saw Nemo! great value for money, 10/10 would recommend

Very well organized outing, good food throughout the day from breakfast to dinner... you just need a little patience for the 2 hour drive from Kata and 1 hour 45/2 hours by boat there AND back. but the islands are well worth it.

A really successful excursion with many colorful fish and corals. Eating lunch simple and ok. The guide was very friendly, also to children, and spoke excellent English and German. The boat ride takes about 1h 30 min.
