My family chose the Hong Island tour through Barracuda Tours on the Longtail boat. We booked the tour through our guest house who gave a 300 baht discount without asking. We were picked by at our guest house in Krabi and transferred to Ao Nang where the boat departed. There are a lot of tours departing so it was a... More

I was also apprehensive about going after the reviews but was pleasantly surprised. Got a seat at the front of the speedboat (best place to be) and had a great experience. The tour guide Alex was a bit sarcastic, but had his good points. He let us jump off the front of the boat as he could see we were... More

A precarious boat trip Whilst holidaying in Krabi, was tempted by a colourful and 'catchy' leaflet, which advertised a number of boat trips to various islands off shore from Ao Nang Beach. That leaflet was for a Company called Barracuda Tours. One 'full day trip' was named 'The Four Islands Tour'. I booked it through the hotel I was staying... More

I was a little apprehensive about going on a barracuda tour after reading the reviews on here but I have to say me and my partner have had the best day! We were picked up early (surprise) went to a assembly point, quickly assigned to our boat and then off we went towards Phi Phi. The beaches were beautiful, the... More

We were picked up from Nopparatthara pier and driven to Ao Nang beach for registering with the company. This seemed to take about an hour due to some unknown delay and organisational issues. We were then driven back to Nopparatthara pier where we boarded the boat at about 10 am. The Phi Phi day trip took in a few of... More

Went for the Phi Phi day tour with my wife and daughter. Got the package for 2000 Baht. I think that was a good bargain. The speed boat was crowded. I was afraid if it had life jacket for everyone. But found later that they had enough life jackets and for my daughter as well. The beaches were nice and... More

We did the Phi Phi Islands tour, including a stop at Maya Bay (beach from the movie The Beach!). The staff were friendly and the trip was very well organised but it felt very rushed. We had 7 stops in a 7 hour tour, including over an hour for lunch. The snorkelling stop was fantastic; incredibly clear waters, literally hundreds... More

I can really see why this company got such bad reviews. It has to do with expectations. I booked this through our hotel. The night before I read all the reviews and thought "Oh no, what have I done?". I was trying to change but there did not seem to be any other suitable option. I was traveling with a... More

For the 5th time in several years we went to Islands tours with Barracudas, this time for the Hong Island tour (previously the 4 and 5 islands tours), and as usual we were delighted by the friendly crew, relatively safe operations (the guide did not bring us to one island as he deemed it dangerous due to rainy season) decent...

My partner and I decided to do this since we got a free pass from our hotel from our booking and there isn't much you can do around Ao Nang for less than 180 each. Plus, it gave us a nice introduction to the most popular islands around. For the price it was a good value but overall pretty basic.... More
