Visited Phi Phi and 'the beach' with Mr B. It was brilliant. He was entertaining and knowledgable. We were looked after and would absolutely go with him again. We took our baby with us and they gave extra attention to us.

The boat was quite small and very bumpy on the way. Not sure if it was the Phi Phi Islands as such or the way the tour was planned, but it was rather disappointing to see everything in a flash and spend less than an hour on such places as the Bamboo Island or Maya Bay...

Later trip to avoid the crowds, unfortunately lunch was slightly late. Great instructors and staff on board. The speedboat schedule was on time and all the passengers were on board on time too. Great snorkeling experience where we saw a huge jellyfish!

Totally not worth it. Nothing to see on coral. Waste of time. Long distance by speedboat. Expensive. Started 1.5h late and ended on scheduled time. Good guide. Good food.

My advice: if you're in Patong, prefer to do any other boat trip. This one departs from a Marina thee hours far from Patong and spend six (almost seven) hours in a shuttle is not very nice. Besides that, the boat takes 1,5 hour to arrive on the islands, so you don't spend so much time there. The crew is... More

Booked at short notice the night before for the following day to go to the Phi Phi islands among others. Mr "B" was our host and a very good one he was too. Funny bloke cracking jokes all the time. Was serious about safety too which was a slight surprise. The journey takes about an hour and the boat wasn't... More

We decided to book this trip for our second day in Khao lak- it was one of the best trips I have ever been on and as an ex holiday rep, that really says something! We were picked up bang on time- one additional pick up then taken for tea/coffee and chose our snorkel and fins (if you want them).... More

Overall, they did a good job in accomodating people, good lunch provided, unlimited drinks and fruits on board their speedboat and they offer free wet towels aftr the trip. The only thing i want to comment is that there were 20+ people in the speedboat apart from the crew. It was very squeezy. Literally sqeezing inside. Its troublesome when u... More

I booked this through Phuket Tours Direct, and landed with this company. The staff are friendly, there was plenty of water provided, and a good lunch. The major problem is the put WAY too many people on one speed boat. You're crammed like sardines for the 75 minute ride to the islands and back. They go to 4 islands, which... More
