This tour is run by English-Thai couple, Cait and Ned. The customer service email is responsive and booking process is simple (with Paypal).
The full day tour costs 1500 THB per person, food and beverages included (free flow cold water and soda, full course lunches and fruits as snacks). Ned led the tour himself (Cait at the time of our visit was in England).
We were picked up at 8am sharp by a 4WD truck. A ride on the back was part of the adventures experience.
The snorkeling gears provided to us are of decent quality. Unlike some snorkeling tours that lend crappy masks, snorkels, fins and floatation jackets.
Unfortunately the coral reefs of the snorkeling sites visited were not too colorful. But the tropical fishes there were beautiful. The tour also took us to Merakot Cave, which you have to swim inside a dark cave to get into a beautiful lagoon. Ned led us to through the cave and carried our stuffs (e.g. cameras etc) in his dry bag. It supposed to feel like Alex Garland's the Beach, but it was swarming with tourists at the time of our visit (around noon and it was a public holiday).
The best thing about our experience was the food. The lunch was cooked onboard. Despite the rudimentary kitchen, the cook prepared tasty simple dishes of green curry, chickens and omellette accompanied with Thai rice.
The boat has an upper deck where you can lie beneath the tropical sun while waiting the cruise to reach its next snorkeling spot. If you don't fancy getting a suntan, you can always take a nap in the lower deck.
Ned is a friendly guy. He also shows an environmentally conscious side: he told us not feed the fishes as it will make them unwilling to eat from coral reefs.
All in all we are happy with the services provided.
