Caught the shuttle to their new facilities, nice breakfast, great staff (very friendly!) Took us out on the speed boat for an hour trip to make 4 stops, 2 snorkeling, 2 beach, including a climb up a cliff face with great views.... All in all a fantastic trip, with great staff. I highly recommend Wow Andanman!

What a long day! It took us 2 hours to get to the boat. 1 hour in a speed boat getting tossed around and then an afternoon of snorkeling and boring water. Lunch was a joke. We were told to stand in line like we were in summer camp. The food was ok if you like over cooked pasta.

What a wonderful day trip! The guide from seastar happy journey was an absolute gem! Shay is an asset to seastar group and they should be honoured to have him! The islands are spectacular. The snorkelling was amazing and the views from sail rock are incredible. I've already recommended this tour to many other travellers! We were well fed and... More

We toured with Love Andaman tour company & highly recommend ! They were professional & hosted an amazing day. Similan islands are best to visit when you are closer to khao lak, it was a 30min bus ride to the pier & a further 1h 15 min speed boat ride to get there (on the way back as we visited... More

Day trip to the Islands was a great day out, we had perfect weather. We booked with Similanstours the service was great and crew very helpful. The boat was new, we departed very early so everywhere we stopped we were there first which is an advantage as when all the boats arrive it can be a little crowded. The water... More

Similan Islands are by far the most beautiful islands in Thailand for me. Gorgeous white beaches and sky blue water... We came on the boat tour to the Similan islands, had plenty of time to chill on the island, enjoy the scenery or just lay on the beach. We also found out that there is an opportunity to stay for...

Day trip to Similan for great snorkeling was disappointing if you expect good coral and lots of fish which you are led to believe is there when booking. The service and fast boat was excellent but for someone who expected top class coral reef viewing it was certainly disappointing. We did manage to see a limited amount of different fish... More
