We will do the entire tour by Speedboat, which will allow us to enjoy the navigation of the Thai waters, having more time to visit beaches, lagoons and other charming places..., this allows for you to enjoy the sea whilst viewing local marine fauna and incredible landscapes. Later we will enjoy an exquisite Thai Buffet Lunch served on the beach with amazing views! And of course we can adapt the menu to any food restriction. Our Certified Guide will be with you during all day, explaining you some Thai culture, the history of the islands, peculiarities of this area of the South of Thailand and of course safety rules on board.

Coco and the whole team were amazing, the day was such a treat for all concerned, the travel, the food, the attractions were all great, quality of everything was not spared and the individual kayaking of every small group of 2-3 people to the caves were exemplary, Thank you!!!

It’s one of the best day trip experience. Staff are friendly and polite, great food and really clean. I thoroughly enjoyed it, worth every penny. I highly recommend.

Really well organised. The crew on the boat were so friendly and helpful, and the main guy who was our guide (Doi, not Toy!) was brilliant.

Absolutely amazing. Great experience with quality standards. Will do again next time.
