Great day but small boat.

Great day. Very well organised and very friendly and attentive staff. Boat very small for the number of people. Absolutely no room to move around or store your things . Everything on your lap. Also, window line above your head so cannot see anything.

Good trip but donu2019t waste your money on the 2nd floor.

The day for the most part was fun. I do wish it was noted when purchasing tickets that if you purchase the 2nd floor of the catamaran and pay extra for the second you donu2019t actually get to sit up there when going to the islands which are over an hr away. You are stuffed in the 1st floor with everyone with no air flow so make sure you grab a handful of Dramamine if you get even a little sea sick. They have them there like itu2019s candy. Just in jars everywhere. Which is helpful. You can only go up to the 2nd floor when youu2019re not moving but when you are not moving you are snorkeling or swimming or chilling on the beach so you donu2019t actually use the 2nd floor and anyone can go up there. They donu2019t check your tickets. So pointless to spend the extra money for something you will never use. Everything else was good. Ocean was beautiful the rock formations were beautiful and the beach was beautiful. It did seem a little rushed and thereu2019s always a tone of ppl so hard to get good photos without some person walking through it but we still managed to get some. I would definitely bring water shoes. The last beach getting on the boat was rough. The tide went down so the boat couldnu2019t get close to the beach. Sow we had to walk about 20-30 ft into the ocean with rough waves coming in and sharp rocks. Got knocked over and cut my foot open. They took your sandals at the beginning of the trip so you donu2019t have them with you.

Beautiful, well organized but packed in like sardines!

This pains me to write this review because I LOVE the Similan Islands and they are gorgeous! Overall the tour company is organized, friendly and the food was good if you like traditional Thai food and seafood. My biggest issue was with the boat. It was like a tour bus on water. We were packed in like sardines and trying to put sunscreen on and snorkeling gear was VERY uncomfortable. Also, the seats are down below the windows which is horrible for anyone with sea sickness because you canu2019t see outside. My experience with the boat forced me to cancel my trip later in the week with this tour company and rebook another operator. There were families with small children on this tour that left their kids sleeping in the boat seats while they snorkeled. It felt like Disneyland in July.

Beautiful islands

Hi apart from the boat breaking down mid trip it was a very enjoyable experience. The guides are quite bossy but they need to be as a vast majority of tourists are idiots and Iu2019d like to say a big thank you to Mazy and her crew. Would definitely recommend them and Sea Star

really an amazing view

we were the first arrived similan island. i had chances to enjoy d island and amazing view from the cliff top after about 10 minutes hiked.. same goes to the other spots which is really an amazing view including snorkeling. unfortunately due to cny holiday there was a lots of Chinese mainland in the island who not sensitive with the cleanliness and hygiene. I not really enjoy the tour. may i have to take the same tour but not during peak season. they ruined my holiday.

Good snorkeling

Driver arrived at pick up very on time. Started the tour early so the islands were still relatively empty until the other tour groups started rolling in and it became extremely crowded on every island. Very friendly guide.

David98562March 19, 2021

Absolutely fantastic

We had an awesome day. Guides were great. The food wasnu2019t great and wasnu2019t suitable for children but we didnu2019t note any dietary requirements on our booking. Would still go again in a heartbeat.

snorkelling in the paradise of the simillan isles

Really enjoyed this trip staff where great couldnu2019t do enough for us. Iu2019m not a great swimmer so they arranged a tow around for a few of us pointing out all the tropical fish. Really recommend this trip thank you team Spider-Man.

Beautiful day at the similan islands

Snorkelling was amazing, speedboat ride was brilliant, island stops, beaches and water were absolutely stunning. Clearest and bluest sea you will ever see. Alex was a fab tour guide, efficient and interactive, however some other younger staff members not helpful and quite disruptive. Overall would recommend to go as we had a really great day.

Sorokoletov45378February 10, 2020

You can do great snorkeling and see a great underwater world

The trip was great. It definitely pays to get up earlier. so we could escape at least some of the tourist crowd. the crew was very helpful and accommodating.

BallengerCheeJanuary 21, 2020

The hotel pickup was punctual. The service of guide and coworkers were great. Great island for Snorkeling. nnThanks

Campbell4587January 18, 2020

a must-go tour!

Friendly staff, breakfast, lunch and after tour snacks inclusive. Lunch could have been better. the islands were so beautiful. really worths the hours on the speed boat ride.

POL897January 02, 2020

Go as early as possible!

We went with a boat early in the morning before most of the other tourists arrived!nI can strongly recommend that, later on the cliffs and beach will become extremely crowded!

Ronald198545December 29, 2019

Similan island is really beautiful

Although the journey is long to the pier, the guide is really nice. The guide took us to the secret beach which is also worth visiting. The view on top of the sailing boat rock is fantastic. The snorkeling experience is also nice. Sometimes you may also see turtles and dolphin if lucky enough.

Guzman159632November 20, 2019
