A great day! A great trip! The crew was Freud Loch and helpful at all times. The food really tasty. The approached islands were a dream! It was really fun. The drinks that are not included are more expensive than elsewhere.

Unfortunately, the included pick up from our hotel didn't work out. We should pay an additional 1000 baht for both of us for the taxi to the catamaran departure point. We then canceled. Heike and Bernd, 11/30/22

It was great, wonderful service and a real luxury experience. The stops were also very nice. We could snorkel and stand up paddle or just go swimming. Two thumbs up would book it again, clear recommendation! :-)

It was a great experience and the training was designed and adjusted to suit me.

Great experience- amazing underwater scenes. All kit/ food/ guidance provided.
