Poor communication from tour operator

I showed up the morning of the tour but did not attend due to health reasons. I asked the tour operator for a refund on site, and they told me to contact the company I booked through. When I got home and spoke to the company I booked through, they told me to contact the tour operator. It has been a month, and the tour operator has not responded to me. They did not even return the 400 baht I paid in cash the day of the tour for the national park fee.

Snorkeling and islands

Itu2019s a perfect organization to visit the islands and do snorkeling - we went with sea stars and locals say it is the best - we do not give 5 stars because on the way back after lunch we had other people joining on our boat and we were too many and also form there we stopped in 2 other places for snorkeling with other boats so really too many people in the water together (we counted about 100!!!) - that said the trip is something to do - also you have the possibility to stay in the island for one night. The tour to suite islands itu2019s longer but itu2019s more complete than similan : you visit a tipsy village and you have snorkeling and beach

Had a great day and the boat journey was the only negative.

Good overall experience and so happy we did it! We went to three snorkelling sights and the National Park for lunch with a beach stop. They allow 40 minutes at each snorkelling destination, each offering something different, and just over an hour for lunch and to relax by the beach. You also visit a local town and have opportunities to buy some souvenirs. We were greeted with breakfast when we arrived and dinner when we got back. They provide flippers and have opportunities for you to rent/buy cameras, phone protectors etc. They take pictures throughout the experience and allow you to buy them afterwards. Our only negative was the boat ride to get there. Although they cannot really avoid this, it is very loud and uncomfortable. It is an hour and a half journey. I wouldnu2019t recommend it to anyone with sensitive hearing or potentially unstable on feet as you climb into boats and jump of the boat to get to locations. Other than this part it was a good experience and our tour hide Bella was very lovely.

Beautiful coral

Throughly enjoyed this trip. The crew was delightful and very engaged. The visit to the sea gypsies was fun, picked up some great souvenirs. 3 great snorkeling locations with lots to see. Lunch was limited, the only thing my son would eat was the fruit. Beach at lunch was great fun.

Great snorkeling in Thailand

The boat trip from start to finish was very efficient.nnWe were picked up at our hotel right on time and driven to the speed boat docks.nnThey laid on some food and drinks for everyone whilst they sorted out the groups etc for the day.nnThe speed boats hold a fair amount of people so don't expect the tour to be one or two other people. With that said this didn't really have a negative effect on our experience. The host's were great and the snorkeling spots were unreal.nnLunch is a buffet style on paradise beach island and we were not dissapointed. It does get busy, but there was more than enough food for everyone.nnFinally, we did a bit more snorkeling and headed back to the boat dock where they had laid on more food which was a nice touch.nnWe were well fed, entertained and had some great snorkeling so overall I'd say it exceeded expectations!nn

A fantastic day from start to finish. Well organised by tour operator where nothing was too much trouble. Islands themselves were beautiful as was snorkelling and food (breakfast, lunch and BBQ on our return) was top notch. Ate my own bodyweight. 10/10

Best snorkeling experience

The location and crew were amazing. On the way to Surin Islands, some motion sickness was encountered, and the staff did an amazing job assisting and supporting us. The waters, coral, and sea life were all incredible.

A trip of a lifetime

What can I say! Wow what a fantastic well organised trip to the most beautiful part of the world I have ever seen. So many stunning fish to see. Our tour guide Latte and her team kept up fed and watered and the banter was good too. nWould return in a heartbeat. Well done all.

Too much nothing to say

Very well organized tour. Dive sites were ok, swim fins would be great. a long trip on a small boat, something stretches

a lovely day. well planned.

All the thing is good. Tour guides were so nice to explain to us. Is it a nice trip and experience. a lovely day.

beautiful beaches.

The beaches were absolutely stunning and well worth the long boat ride. We visited two beaches and two snorkeling sites but the snorkeling areas didnt have much fishes and corals at all. nothing much to see. It wouldve been five stars had we skipped snorkeling and just spent that time in the beaches which were gorgeous.

Bender8956December 22, 2019

the beauty of the beach

It was an enjoyable but long day - the beauty of the beach made it all worth it though. You get to snorkel at multiple locations so there is a high value for money as well. Remember to bring a towel and some spare clothes to wash off at the end of the day.

Lindsey147December 16, 2019

a really great full day out

Sand was as white and as fine as powder and the water was clear as clear blue waters can be. A really great full day out. It's a long way but well worth it if you like whizzing about at high speed on fast boats and jumping in the sea to go snorkeling. The trip provides lunch on the island.

Prima verzorgd, het geld waard.

Ik kan echt niet anders zeggen dan: TOP geregeld en zeker het geld waard. Vanaf het ophalen tot thuisbrengen werd je volledig verzorgd en ontzorgd, het was een geoliede machine wat Seatours liet zien. Na het ontbijt en ophalen van je zwemvliezen op de pier was het 90 min varen met de speedboot voordat je op 2 verschillende plekken ging snorkelen voor 40 min. Tussendoor kreeg je een frisdranken en wat koekjes. Prachtige onderwaterwereld. Daarna naar het eiland waar je kon lunchen voor ong 75 min. Vervolgens zijn we met een longtailboot naar een ander eiland gegaan voor een 30 min durend bezoek naar de lokale u2018gipsyu2019 bevolking. Daarna nog eenmaal gesnorkeld en terug gevaren. Na het afscheid van de fijne crew kregen we nog een prima bbq en ijs. Kortom echt de moeite waard. Wij hadden overigens geboekt bij een van de vele toeristenshopjes in Khao Lak.
