We found this tour group from the good tripadvisor reviews, and so we booked a private charter to Racha Yai. Mini-van picked us up on time from our villa and dropped us off at the pier. We met Steve and Giles, (English) who were friendly and informative. The boat is a speedboat, but a decent size and comfortable seating area. Life jackets are supplied, and so are very good quality snorkelling gear. Steve was extremely knowledgeabll about coral reefs- speices, habitat of different fish, etc. We visited three reefs, with plenty of fish and reef area. We saw thousands of Seargent Majors, rabbit fish, razor fish, and the odd squid or pufferfish. Soft drinks were supplied in coolers, breakfast rolls, lunch was served on the boat in a quiet location, Thai food, and was very delicious. In the afternoon we were also given chocolate cake and fruit. Beautiful beaches and wonderful reefs, with fantastic service. We would definitely recommend the private charter for any day trip occasion.

We would recommend a private boat trip to Phang Nga bay in a heartbeat. This wonderful place has a lost in time feel to it and the offspray leisure boat team made it even more memorable with a fantastic picnic lunch in side a cave over looking the bay and islands.

Hi Amita ,

Thank you for writing a review about your experience on the boat with us . Phang-Nga Bay is one of our favorite destinations and a great choice during the green season due to it's location and shelter from the monsoon winds . Glad you liked our secret cave location for your picnic lunch : )

All the best , Giles

The entire trip was done first class all the way. The day was looking to be a very stormy day and we weren't sure exactly where to go to avoid the rain. Our English speaking guide on the boat, Steve, was watching the weather and took us to Phi Phi because it looked to be the best spot even if there was rain. We were very lucky with the rain, but around noon the rain picked up. Instead of eating lunch on the boat, they crew had the perfect spot to hide away from the rain and the crowds. We ate lunch on our private beach. The food was amazing!! The snorkeling gear was very nice and the underwater view of the fish are spot on. Couldn't have asked for a better day!

We had a fantastic time with this tour!!! I would 100% reccomend this to anyone looking for an energetic tour group. They were as informative as we hoped and as adventerous as we needed! It rained on and off during the day so the sights were not as crisp as we had seen in pictures but that is nobodys fault but mother natures! Great time, already planning our trip back!

Hi , Thanks for your nice review . Mother nature .... I know all about her ! We try to reschedule when it looks like it will rain a lot during the day but sometimes the weather man gets in wrong and the day starts out with blue skies so it is difficult to predict . Glad you really enjoyed the day regardless of the scattered showers ....I wish all our Guests were as light hearted as you : )

Kind Regards , Giles & the Offspray Team

We had such a great day on the offspray speedboat cruising from place to place. We wanted to avoid the crowds where possible and also try something special as it was our sons 16th birthday.
offspray suggested a private charter to Racha noi and Racha yai with a family 'discover sbuba diving experience'.
This turned out to be perfect for us.Away from the crowds(most of the time)and very proffessional crew and diving instructor. We all loved the diving, felt safe and relaxed on both dives which was a bit oif a concern before we started!
We can personally recommend the Racha islands charter for families with offspray.
