There was a breakfast set up when we got there which was welcome after such an early start. We visited four... More

First thing I have to say is, It's a loooong day. Just over 12 hours from pick up to drop off. Don't get me wrong, they're beautiful islands, but after experiencing some other Island Tours and think your money could be better spent.

We go to Donald Duck Island before any other boats. It's beautiful, pure white sands, crystal clear water. After about 45 minutes the beach was packed with boats and tourists everywhere.

The trip was well organized, good equipment and clean boats. Guidance was good and islands were beautiful. Donot expect to much of the sealife underwater, Coral reef is all grey although fishes colorful but not that much. No turtles seen. Good spend for a day trip.

Do a liveaboard from Khao Lak to really appreciate this place. You need a few days. The diving is amazing.
