When we set off it was raining hard and we’re not very optimistic about the trip. 1 hour in and all changed, had some great snorkelling and nice island visits. Then topped off with a fantastic barbecue at Poda island with amazing sunset…. to finish we were lucky to swim in the bioluminescent algi AJ the guide was brilliant!! Recommend this trip!!

Fantastic day. The guides are extremely friendly and helpful, making sure we all got some great photos. We couldn't get to a couple of the islands due to it being off season and some high winds but we had a wonderful time. The sunset at the final beach was like nothing I've ever seen. Great bbq too. Highly reccomend!

We had a great day. I recommend this tour to anyone who is in Ao Nang. There is ample time at each stop and you can watch fish on the reef off Chicken Island and Poda Island at leisure. Our guide was super nice, accommodating and always provided interesting details. All in all we had a great day!

Best tour we did during our trip to Thailand. Our guide was excellent, all the islands were not too crowded, and the bbq dinner was delicious
