AMAZING! JUST AMAZING!
Mar 2020
What an amazing experience!

Amazing scenery, amazing tour guide and awesome crew! Lunch was AMAZING! Beach choices were AMAZING! Fed a monkey too! Just unreal!

Can't say enough about Simba Sea Trips, I will definitely be recommending them whenever I can.

It was also nice that the tour operator knew SO MUCH history about the places we were going and Thailand in general for that matter.

Great experience!

Thanks!

Great small group tour
Feb 2020 • Family
Our family recently did a day tour with Simba and had a great day with Harry. Our group was 15 which was big enough. Early pick up meant we got to each spot before the crowds. Seeing the sunrise was pretty, James Bond Island was beautiful and loved the sea kayaking,our guides were very friendly and enjoyed a good laugh. We walked through caves to reach the mangroves. We had a short stop at a private beach for a swim which was lovely and the lunch stop at the beautiful and quiet Koh Yah was delicious, my husband and son had the chicken burger and say it was the best they'd ever had. Plenty of cool drinks and snacks available. Harry even picked up other tourists rubbish left behind on the beach to keep these places clean and he cares for the environment. For a small group tour I'd definitely recommend Simba Sea Tours.

Amazing excursion to Phang Nga Bay
Feb 2020
My coworker recommended Simba Sea Trips and in particular the Phang Nga Bay tour. My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Phuket and had only one day in which we hadn't planned activities yet - we struggled in choosing between Phang Nga Bay and Phi Phi Islands, but ultimately chose the former. We couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The day began with our driver showing up on the dot to pick us up from our hotel at 5:40am. From there, we picked up a few more people who were going to be on our tour before arriving at the Phuket Marina. A note for those who tend to get cold easily - I would recommend bringing more layers or even a jacket because in the early morning, especially when we are moving super fast in the speedboat, it's windy and can get pretty cold. I seemed to be the only person who had an issue with this but thought I would provide the PSA just in case.

We really enjoyed all of the activities that they had planned for us, and our tour guide, Harry, along with the rest of the crew, was absolutely fantastic. He was so knowledgeable about the area and history, but also had a great sense of humor so we loved hearing him speak. He and the crew went out of their way to make sure we felt taken care of, from offering us snacks and water continuously through the trip, to making sure we were routinely sanitizing our hands. Harry also graciously offered to take photos for all of us throughout the day, and then emailed the photos to us before we left. My favorite part of the trip was our lunch at a cute little island where we also saw petrol stations and rubber trees, but the entire experience was extremely well run and organized.

We are so happy we decided to take this day trip (despite only having gotten 3 hours of sleep because we were at a music festival the night before). Would absolutely recommend Simba Sea Trips to anyone who's looking for a great day trip in Phuket.

Greatest day! Couldn’t reccomend more
A highlight of my whole holiday. We originally were supposed to do the sunrise tour but I fell sick the night before and they very kindly answered our email after business hours (6pm) and let us switch to a few days later (we were very thankful).
The tour was amazing, we loved going into the cave and the canoes as well as the beaches and views (we even saw a dolphin). There was a lot more to do rather then just sitting on a beach which my partner and I liked.

Compared to other boats we only had 13 people on ours which was wonderful as you could walk around and wasn’t crowed

The staff were lovely and couldn’t have been nicer. They took photos of us if we wanted and answered any questions and provided medical assistance when someone fell over.

The food was wonderful wow! So much food! Morning tea (rice paper rolls), fruit and cake, lunch, more fruit and chocolate and drinks throughout.

Was the best trip and wished we had more time to do another.

Wonderful day trip to Phang Nga Bay
Jan 2020
We originally booked the new sunset tour and were contacted the day before saying that there weren't enough people to run it and given the choice of switching to another tour, or a refund. We were a bit disappointed as we particularly wanted to see Koh Panyee, the floating island but fortunately we were in Thailand for long enough that we could swap to the Phang Nga Bay tour.

We're so pleased that we did as we had a wonderful time. It was a VERY early start but totally worth it as Harry and his crew made sure that our small group reached each of the sights before any other tour groups, particularly important for the busy 'James Bond' island which I imagine gets pretty hard to move around on once the crowds turn up!

We were looked after so well with food and drinks on board, towels and motion sickness pills provided for those who needed them. Harry was extremely knowledgeable about the different rock formations and biology on the island, the people of the Muslim village, and very willing to take hundreds of photographs for us. Excellent service from Simba and would thoroughly recommend them.

Dear Hayley1508, Thanks for sharing your experience with Simba. We are so happy that you were able to change to another tour. Sadly it has been a bit quiet in Phuket and so we have been forced to close a few tours. It's great to read that you thought the early start was worth it and that Harry took great care of you. Good to hear you got lots of photos taken too. Thanks so much for recommending us also. It means a lot to us! We hope to see you again. Best regards, Andrea Simba Sea Trips

Feb 2020 • Couples
Picked this tour company from a recommendation from a friend of a friend. Little did I expect the amazing experience we had! Harry and his crew were so much fun and very informative about the history of the area. We learned lots of fun facts. Also, they kept us very hydrated and constantly feed us so that’s always a plus. They offered free WiFi on the boat as well ass dry bags for cameras. Everything was including except for sunblock! They even provided sea sickness pills prior to boarding the trip. My husband and I can’t say enough good things about this tour. We highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Amazing Phang Nga and beyond Tour
Feb 2020 • Solo
I went on the above tour yesterday from the moment I was picked up from the hotel until I was dropped back everything was amazing. You get confirmation emails detailing pick up times and they were there by that time - a quick breakfast at the simba sea trips office while we had a briefing on the day by the lovely Harry - There were only 14 people on our tour. We then went to the boat and met the crew who really couldn’t do enough for you during the day. First stop James Bond Island we were the first boat there - Harry helped with taking photos for anyone that wanted them. By the time we got back breakfast had been laid out on the boat for us. Next on to Hong Island and kayaking, once again Harry and crew helped with photos, we then went to Mangrove caves - Harry was very informative on whatever area we went to. We then travelled to Kah Yoh Noi for an amazing lunch - again very professionally run- our final stop was an hour on Noc Island (sorry if this is spelt wrong) - a little paradise, where the crew brought fruit trays and drinks around to everyone.
I was a solo traveller and didn’t feel on my own at all. Harry and the crew are a credit to Simba Sea Trips, polite, knowledgable, humorous and all came across just wanting the trip to be extra special for everyone onboard. I would urge anyone thinking of doing a trip with Simba Sea Trips to just book it - small group size, safety conscious, professional and just Amazing 🙂

Simba sea trips was the highlight of our holiday. From the start to end we smiled all day. The service is exceptional. Harry and the boys were so professional. We were provided with snacks refreshments cake fruit. I even saw one of the staff walk fruit on a platter out to guests who were swimming. Harry was amazing telling us all about the places we visited. Lunch was great at a restaurant on the beach with the locals. We were first to islands and even got to see a monkey. Thanks Simba this was a day to remember if I could give you more than 5 stars I'd rate you 100%. 😁

Yes They do beat the crowds! Yes they do operate small groups!!!
Jan 2020
We booked this trip before we left the UK and whilst it cost a little more if it did what they promised then it would be well worth it!!!!
I contacted the team whilst we were in Phuket and said I had booked Saturday JAN 11 but if the group was smaller on either the 10th or 12th we could change. Moya at Simba Sea Trips emailed me back immediately with very good English and offered us to switch to the 10th as there were only five people booked that day!!!! We took them up on the offer and had a magical experience with only 7 people on the speedboat so everyone could have a seat up front and outside. The boat was beautiful.
We asked If we could drive ourselves to the Marina and this was approved.
On arrival at their offices at 6.30 there is simply an amazing selection of breakfast snacks to keep you going as the early start will mean no hotel breakfast available. You are then served a breakfast of spring rolls, fruit and banana bread on board after the first stop.
It is well worth the very early start of 7 am from the Marina as you do get to beat the crowds.
The stops include caving, seeing an amazing hidden lagoon, being kayaked in a beautiful part of the bay, swimming on a secluded beach then into James Bond Island. Harry the guide is EXCEPTIONAL!!!! He was so knowledgable, spoke perfect English and had a wicked sense of humour. What an asset to Simba Sea Trips he is!!! He explains every apart of your trip, what to expect, what shoes to wear.....etc.
We had a difficulty with one engine on the speedboat .....Harry told us not to worry if they boat guys could t fix it they would bring out a spare boat!
Lunch on an island restaurant was lovely the food was good and the drink offerings great, you pay only for the drinks. A quick trip to the other side of the island by a little open bus a good touch.
The only down side was the very last stop. It was on a pretty grotty beach with lots of other tourists and you could only swim in certain areas due to sea urchins. We were supposed to spend an hour our there. Lucky for us our small group seemed to get back on the boat before the allotted time was up and we rested there with some nice music.
Throughout the trip Harry is offering an endless supply of water and soft drinks.
Even the disappointing last stop would not deter me from booking this lovely day out again......it simply goes to show you how magical the majority of the trip is. I am sure that Harry will feed back opinion about the last stop anyway.
Well done Simba you have a great team in Harry, Moya and the boat guys!!!!
THANK YOU,

Hi Julie, Thanks for the very very detailed review! Thanks for your patience with the engine issue but it didn't end up impacting the schedule so I'm happy about that. You were lucky to get such a small group - very rare for this time of year. Thanks also for your kind words on Harry - his English is amazing and the best I have met of any Thai person. Kind regards Stewart
