Great day, well organised and timed. You're split into groups (based on language) and given a coloured wristband to easily identify others in your group. The guide (Don), captain and his crew are all very friendly. Refreshments offered all day along with a good lunch. The island itself is beyond beautiful, with pure white beaches and ultra fine sand. Would be my number 1 recommendation to people visiting South Thailand.

An amazing experience. The waters and nature of Similan island are breathtaking and should be experienced by everyone. The guides and tour was extremely respectfull to the naturereserve and where as professional as one can possibly be.

We loved our experience. The perfect amount of information vs time on the islands. Great guides who were more than happy to answer all questions and take pics to help capture the times.

Paradise island everything was perfect despite a rough sea and a delay which he is catching up after the French speaking guide everything was perfect

Really great trip. Great team, awesome organization, good food and snacks. The best snorkeling we had because of the beautiful reef.
