Took a day trip here from Khao Lak. The snorkeling was great and the kids had a good time. We dived in two different areas and there are many different companies offering the service. It is quite a boat ride from Khao Lak (over 4 hours round trip) with about 2 hours in the water. Very good afternoon spent out... More

VERY busy, gorgeous islands, but an awful lot of boats packed to the rafters with tourists, but a lovely experience all the same

The Similan islands are beautiful. White sandy beaches and blue waters, just stunning. Our tour stopped at 4 of the islands and the snorkelling was great. The coral is not much to look at however it still houses many beautiful fish. If you're lucky you may even see turtles or dolphins. The tour company we used was Seastar and they... More

I booked a day motorboat/snorkeling tour with 2 Sisters Tour Company and had a terrible experience. I have gone on most of the other island trips (Pee Pee, James Bond, Rawaii) and had good tours and lots of fun. The tour with 2 Sisters was horrible. They were supposed to pick us up between 6 and 6:15am and finally showed... More

The islands and the waters are just breathtaking! I have never seen shades of blue like that before in my life. However, these islands are crowded! There are several tour companies operating several tours on the islands. So there is a constant flux of hundreds upon hundreds of people on any given day. Other than that, it definitely was a...

We are a party of 14 people and chose Love Adaman for our excursion on December 9, 2015. At our hotel, Love Adaman picked us up in a van and drove us directly to their shop. Our leader checked us in and paid the necessary fees. They have a self-serve continental breakfast—coffee, tea, juice, muffins, pastries, cookies, sandwiches, etc. This... More

Don't regret going here as very beautiful and saw some great fish snorkelling but really disliked hordes of tourists on beach particularly loud, rude ones who dropped their rubbish. We went to the end of each beach or for a walk to escape but what a shame is such a tourist day trippers merry go round.

Must visit if you are a snorkelling and diving fanatic. Less crowded of all the islands and the view and water were out of this world. Coming from patong, it took a while to get there; 1h30 by car to the peer and 1 h20min by speed boat to the islands. The guide 'spicy' was very helpful and friendly and... More
