Was recomended this company by someone who lives on the island and what a day out.
They picked us up from the hotel and took us to the dive centre, introduced us to everyone and explained what was going to go on for the day.

We had an absolutely fantastic day out, snorkeling, kayaking and visitors centre at the national park although the monkeys were in a lazy mood so we didn't see a great deal of them.

The lunch was realy good, had expected that it would be the usual packed lunch type of meal but it was a choice of as much as you could eat curry, vegetables rice etc.and it was really good quality.

A couple of people on our trip had some mobility issues and I can't express how well the staff helped them so that they could fully enjoy the day. Please be aware though that there is some climbing both steps and the ladder into the speedboat so I dont think it would be suitable for someone with severe mobility problems.

Basically if you are looking for a fantastic day out on your holiday give these guys a try.
I am sure you wont be disappointed, everything is included except for the suncream :-) they make everyone feel welcome and the boat crews seem to have the balance between being casual, friendly while being highly professional just about spot on.

Hope this helps you make a decision but I do think you will enjoy the experience with these guys.

Our family of four was looked after by Mila and her team and it was excellent. We did everything possible in the marine park including Goodling through the caves seeing thousands of anchovy fish. Couldn't fault these guys. Thanks from Rob, Jane, Molly and Jamie.

We had a wonderful day in the marine park and can agree 100% with all the other great reviews. In addition, the lunch was delicious, and the first aid was first class when husband cut his finger on a bit of coral. The most fun part for me was sea kayaking. Our charming guide, Mr Bo, took my 12 year old with him, while I paddled with my older daughter. We went into a sea cave with a chimney up to the jungle above and then spent a hilarious 30 minutes paddling back to our beach against the wind and the afternoon downpour. Eventually, one of our other crew members swallow dived off the dive boat to rescue us. We were just laughing too much to coordinate our feeble paddling attempts. Such fun!

We chose 100 degrees east for a trip to the Ang Thong Marine Park and would highly recommend them. It was a packed day with prompt pick up from the hotel with an English driver, then a 45 minute speed boat ride out to the park. I'd thought I might get sea sick but they made sure that anyone who might have felt ill could sit at the back which was reassuring (and no-one was ill!). Snorkelling was great fun and we felt very well taken care of as it was such a small group. A Thai curry lunch on the beach was lovely and the sea kayaking was great too.
The whole day was the one of the highlights of our honeymoon and we would definitely recommend 100 degrees east. Even the slightly gloomy weather that day didn't detract from the trip. We saw the bigger boats with 30+ people on and were glad we'd paid a bit extra to do the 'VIP' version. Wouldn't have fancied being herded about like cattle (in the nicest possible way, I'm sure) all day.

We chose to dive with 100 Degrees East due to the fantastic reviews we'd read; we weren't disappointed. My boyfriend was completing his PADI open water and I was tagging along as a certified diver. The information and communication with Caz before we had even booked was super informative. The dive boat is high-speed and only allows for small groups- our instructor (Jorma) was totally dedicated to us and the level of attention and instruction we received from him was excellent. The whole dive team are a lovely bunch of people who were always keen to help and answer any questions. We were taken to Koh Tao and Sail rock over two consecutive days- Sail rock was amazing! We had early starts on both days but it was definitely worth it as we beat all the other large (and slow!) boats from other dive companies to the dive sites. In fact when we surfaced from our first dive most of the other companies were only just arriving.
The lunch provided was traditional Thai food- really tasty and better than other tasteless packed lunches we've previously had!
Both days were so well organised and the company runs like a slick well-oiled machine but still manages to be very personable in it's approach. We would whole-heartedly recommend 100 Degrees East to anyone wishing to dive around Koh Samui/ Koh Tao. Great for beginners as well as more experienced divers.
Thanks to all the 100 Degrees East team!
Sarah and James
