What people are saying about Chicken Island

Wow what an experience, you need to book this! We had the time of our life, it’s basically an all day snorkelling trip that pushes you outside your comfort zone with open sea snorkelling and snorkelling in the pitch black night! Our guide Heem was absolutely amazing, friendly, knowledgable and made me feel safe at all times when snorkelling! The best parts of the tour is the open sea snorkelling where we saw the coral reefs with water snakes puffer fish etc, watching the sunset in the middle of the ocean, night snorkelling and all the breathtaking views! Be aware that the plankton aren’t going to be as bright as you see on pictures in google but nevertheless is a breathtaking one time experience regardless.

Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.

Amazing tour! Completely beyond our expectations. The program is quite extensive and very interesting. Not just your average boat ride - we swam amongst fishes on our own private island shore, explored caves and had a tasty home cooked meal. The driver and the guide were very helpful and let us tailor the tour to our individual desires. Overall, very pleasantly surprised by how well organized everything was!

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!

Kind guides, lots of beaches, accommodating pickup options, delicious lunch!
