Wouldn’t bother doing this tour, advertising online is completely wrong claiming it’s a tour for 18-35 and a party cruise. It’s none of those things. Defiantly not worth the money paid

Unfortunately me and my partner had to cancel our trip very last minute due to one of us getting very ill. The team was very understandable and provided fantastic customer service. Thank you again :)

Castaways was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of my time in SE Asia (so far!). Worth every penny - I have absolutely no regrets. Be warned however: this is a major party trip. Don’t bother coming if you’re not up for drinking incessantly,...More

Minus the hangover I loved every minute of it. The staff instantly make you feel welcome, shout out to Daisy and Cat who were the main 2 running it when I visited - both amazing. Day 1 is water sports, either tubing or wakeboarding, I...More
