An amazing snorkelling experience!

Our trip to Surin was amazing! The whole day was organised so well with a delicious lunch provided. Snorkelling was incredible, we were able to see so many beautiful fish and corals! Our stopover in the Moken village was also wonderful, got to meet the lovely sea gypsys and their families. Overall a wonderful day with such stunning views! Thank you to our guide Moana who especially made the day enjoyable.

Best Thailand trip during my stay

Amazing sea life while snorkeling. Loved gypsy town. Crew was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this trip.

Beautiful place to visit

We tried booking snorkelling at Surin Islands through this Tripadvisor page only to have almost all the money refunded a day later because the trip was apparently full. Went to a recommended woman in Patong who got us onto the boat for less - check out Better Call Nika & Gzonetour on Facebook.nnIt's a long day with a 6am collection from the hotel in Patong. A good 2 hour van drive north takes you up to Seastar's dock with being one of the first collected beneficial as you can use a window as a pillow.nnBreakfast is available for those who can eat, coffee is industrial strength for the rest of us who are normal people.nnWe sat at the rear of our boat, trading off less bounce from the swell for noise from the engines. It's just over an hour to our first stop. The wife was scared of the thought of wearing a snorkel and mask but took to it really well as soon as the beauty of the reef below shared its life with us.nnRemember UV bounces off the surface of the water and your back will be exposed - get some reef-safe factor 50 on your flesh. Reapply after each dip. You don't want a 2 hour journey back to Phuket with sunburn.nnOne more snorkelling stop before stopping at an island for lunch and time to spend on the beach, see the turtle hatchery, and play in the shallow water. We watched shoals leaping from the water, it was a delight.nnLeaving the beach, we called in at the sea gypsy village for a wander and shopping opportunity. Show me the man who says he has enough key rings and I'll point to a liar.nnA final snorkel over another reef and the day was done far too quickly. There's the option to camp overnight for brave souls who don't mind being kept awake all night by monkeys and insects.nnBack at the dock, yet another meal in case people hadn't eaten enough (on top of the snacks and drinks on the boat). Then there was chaotic confusion finding out where to return the flippers and how to identify our van home - compounded by drivers deciding to switch up where they were going between themselves.nnI managed to sleep for most of the journey home fortunately as some bloke decided the world needed his YouTube video like yesterday - so spent the entire trip editing it on his phone, which entailed playing part of a Moby track over and over until my wife began looking for a club or knife.nnI had a fish ID pdf from my scuba course the previous week - strongly recommend hunting something like that out on the internet before you go. We saw two types of moray, angelfish, starfish, urchins, cucumbers, crabs, fusiliers, gobies, damsels, butterflies, clowns, groupers, and more.nnNext time we head to the Similan Isles. It was ace.

Very good, first-class service

Breakfast style is not much, but the taste is very good, there are a lot of snacks in the whole process, soda and water will not worry about the hungry return before there is a meal

Well organised tour with one of the best water for snorkelling

Punctual pickup and professional guide. Plenty of water and small bite food from the organiser. Be prepared to sit for 2 hours on bus and 1.5 hours on speed boat. Other then that, itu2019s a 5 star trip!

Great Time

I loved this tour. For the price I paid, the value was really delivered. Our tour guide Man was a true treasure and everyone was gracious and accommodating. The itinerary was great and Surin island was a dream. I saw seahorses and clown fish. Loved this trip!

Hardaker324January 16, 2020

amazing trip guider was so friendly

Beaches were very nice and syneric but it's crowdy as well. The tour guide were nice as well. I don't like tour itinerary. They should have given more time either for beach stay or for snorkeling. I don't why this island known as one of the best place for snorkeling.

SinarfadhliKamsaniJanuary 15, 2020

I would recommend you to book with this tour agency.

The tour guide was very informative and helpful. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were provided even though the choices was very limited.
