Full description
Maiton Island is located about nine kilometers off the Southeast Coast of Phuket, known for its untouched natural beauty. Relax on pristine, white sandy beaches where you can swim, snorkel or simply enjoy the beach. Begin your day with an early pick-up from hotels in Phuket around 06:50-08:00 AM. Around 09:00 AM, you will check in at the pier and have some time to enjoy a light breakfast, coffee and tea while listening to the educational preparation of the eco-tourism alert from a tour guide. At 10:00 AM, you will depart for Maiton Island by speedboat with a journey time of around 20 minutes. On arrival, take some time to relax, swim and snorkel at the Maiton reef with colorful fishes and beautiful corals under the sea. At noon, you will enjoy a delicious Thai buffet lunch with dishes such as fried chicken, grilled shrimps, fresh fruit and a variety of desserts afterward. After lunch, your guide will offer the opportunity to take you for a short hike to see the island's viewpoint. On a clear day, you will be able to experience the spectacular scenery of Phuket and surrounding islands. Then, enjoy your time to rest on the beach, and sunbathe, swim and snorkel at your own pace. Around 3:10 PM depart from Maiton island and be transferred back to your hotel in Phuket by 4:00-5:00 PM.

Was a great tour! The stands on the island are really beautiful. Like in paradise. Unfortunately we had to wait 45 minutes for the first snorkeling trip to the other side of the island. The waves on the main beach are very strong in the morning. Love Andaman's 'lounge area' could also be nicer: / only outdated plastic chairs and no loungers. You can see what rents at a lodge next door, 700B per day for 2 pieces. Breakfast and lunch were delicious with lots of choice! In itself a really great day that you could make longer so that you are not so rushed ... Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins. The boat trip in the morning was pretty bumpy, not for the weak stomachs;)

We had a super early pick up on the day, 6am, but the ride was pleasant. I think we were the first to arrive at the pier. There was a simple breakfast after registration and an hour's wait for the other arrivals before getting in the boat for a 20 minute ride to Maiton Island. The sea was slightly choppy, we had another 10 min boat ride round to the other side of the island for a spot of snorkelling. Unfortunately the coral was quite tired looking, not colourful anymore. There were other boats too but enough room so it didn't seem crowded. A good spread of lunch and the team was very friendly and hospitable! We had another hour or more of leisure and more snorkelling after lunch. A lovely day out altogether!
