Unfortunately my experience was not pleasant. I so hate writing negative reviews but I like to read people's true experiences myself when planning things, so here is mine. My partner and I did the day trip to Similan Islands by speedboat and I was so looking forward to it. The islands themselves are gorgeous so whilst I recommend going to... More

Similan Islands is a group of islands in the Andaman Sea off the coast of, and part of, Phang Nga Province, southern Thailand. It is so clear blue water with sandy beach on the beautiful islands...called "Koh Similan". A good place to do lots of adventurous activities like swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, hiking. Many beautiful and variety views of small... More

We started our trip at 5:45am and after a 3 hour drive we arrive at a shack for "breakfast" which was a couple of jars of dry biscuits and toast. It was awful. We eventually arrive at the marina where we are asked to forfeit our footwear and had photos taken of our faces against our will (which were printed... More

Joined a company called Check-in Andaman and a day trip to Similan Islands. The round trip transport took a total of 6 hours. We were taken to a total of 4 islands. We went snorkelling at 2 of the islands but the water in the first island we arrived was not clear. Then we were taken to the 2nd island... More

These islands appear from the ocean like a ghost. One minute there are open seas and the next they loom large. The visibility was magnificent, 30-40 feet clear. The fish life was magnificent with an occasional turtle. Unique.

We have been to a few islands now and Similan was the most beautiful beaches of them all. The water was crystal clear, warm and just simply amazing.

Stunning views and some of the clearest water I have ever seen. Swimming was excellent and snorkeling revealed a great variety of fish. Will post on one of the forums re day snorkeling trips as it wasn't too clear which tour operator to go with. things to consider for a snorkeling day tour: -ask maximum number of people on the...

The day trip with Wow was excellent. Well organised and great beaches and lunch. Arty was our guide and he was very informative and had a great personality. Very talented. The excursion was very relaxing and our best day trip in Khao Lak. The speedboat, one of four are all new and comfortable.

We did a day tour with Sea Star to the islands, we travelled by luxury speedboat, were given ample time for snorkelling and were really taken care of. Our only downside was that the smoke from the fires in Indonesia made visibility terrible on the way out and back, but well worth it to see the amazing sights this group... More
