We booked this day trip knowing our 3 year old would be with us, so we're glad it turned out to be a "bit of everything" tour without any rigid structure. We enjoyed some swimming, kayaking, snorkelling and island sightseeing without getting bogged down to much with any of these. If anything, the amount of time spent on the island was WAY too long for what was available to do there.

In terms of the boat, yes it was big and old but very comfortable and we were well catered for in terms of food, drink and snacks. Our head guide Marcus looked like a ye olde pirate (awesome) and was knowledgeable and well spoken. He had to present in both English and German and managed to keep this from becoming long-winded for all guests.

It was nice to have the longer trip in/out to enjoy a great sunny day on the rooftop sun deck. Very relaxing. Overall great day!

Had a great time on the tour. Blue star was right on time from start to stop. Great guys to go snorkeling and kayaking with. And of course enjoy their lunch and drinks.

We were picked up at our hotel and brought to the pier.

On the boat there was a free all you can eat and drink refreshment (soft drinks like water, coke, fanta, instant coffee and tea and fruits and croissants).

The guide Marcos was fine, explaining everything you need.

First stop was for snorkeling. We were notified in advance we shouldn't expect red sea or carribean. But still we were able to see nice fish and some corals.

Next was kayaking. Even though we dropped our camera to the sea due to broken holder it was great. Ocean kayaks are very easy to maneuver and control and it is quite stable. It is perfectly ok even for first timers. With your kayak you go by the rocks in the national park, going through small caves and overhangs. Very nice and it us a great fun.

Then we while on move to another spot we had a great lunch. Again there was a plenty of food so you could get as much as you can eat. It was a thai bufet style lunch consisting of rice, boiled vegetable, curry and sweet and sour souce. All with chicken. Soft drinks also for free, beer for additional charge of 70B.

Then we landed at a beautiful beach. Climbed to the nice lake and then relaxed on the beach, swimming. From the beach we took another kayak trip to get aboard our ship.

Finally we were again transported to our hotel.

Everything was great I would recommend this to anyone. It is worth it.

All in all we thought the tour was very well organized and the operators were professional, courteous, and thoughtful. Not a single complaint can be made out of the day. Scenery is beautiful, kayaking great, and beach time chilled out. The boat for Blue Stars is decent-sized, but can't hold too many people. That said, we had about 40 in our group, so no one gets lost in the shuffle of things and everyone can access information and supplies equally and easily. Well thought out day.
