It was a really good experience, our guide was incredibly helpful and the captain did a great job with the longtail boat.

Do be aware that lunch is larger than dinner, it might be nice to offer a barbecue, though obviously they change where they watch sunset each day. We were very lucky to watch the sunset from where we did.

Our guy did his absolute best to find the fish that we wish to see, and I truly enjoyed my day.
I also think people should be aware in general that the plankton is quite hard to see at the moment as it’s quite light in the evenings and it does not glow so brightly as pictures may show. However it’s incredible to see them light up in front of you they look like fireflies.

Maybe because of the weather, but I really love this tour more than Phil Phi’s! We were picked up on time, and had a nice swim at Railay Beach. Then we head to Chicken Island for lunch and had a really good time at the Tombolo. The water and beach there was so far the best I’ve seen in my week in Krabi! The snorkelling too was really amazing, plenty of fish and corals! We then enjoyed a nice walk on Ko Poda, where we had a very nice chicken club sandwich when we were sitting on the beach looking at the sunset. The night snorkel was super fun. Seen so much plankton!! I definitely recommend this tour and Thalassa. The tour was very professionally adapted to the weather, and I think it’s especially important when you visit Krabi in the rainy months!

Just wow, one of the best experience of our lives! It’s an all day snorkelling adventure pushing you out of your comfort zone with open sea diving where we saw puffer fish sea snakes and loads of fish. And night snorkelling which you dive into the sea pitch black and see the plankton ( the plankton aren’t as vibrant as you see on google pics but it still is an amazing experience) seeing the sunset in the middle of the ocean is so quiet and peaceful. Our guide Heem was amazing he was so knowledgable and kept me feeling safe at all times especially when snorkelling, you can tell he really loves his job and wants to make the experience great for you. I can’t explain to anyone how good this tour is without them seeing it for themselves. Thank you so much!

We did this tour in longboat with two other couples and really enjoyed the whole day trip, with the feeling of aprivate tour but with the extra joy of sharing the experience ( and slower price). For us, the timing, starting at 12:00 was way better than typical Thay tours starting at 7-8am, and we got to enjoy beaches almost for ourselves when other groups had already left. Compared to the Phi Phi tour, this was more relaxed, distances are shorter, and we had more time to enjoy beaches, take pictures and also to do more snorkel in the most beautiful spot of our trip. Sakee made sure we all had a wonderful experience, learnt about nature in Krabi and took many good pictures together, and we had al the drinks and food we wanted along the day.
Prices are higher than other tours, but the experience is worth it compared to other groups we came across.

This trip was awesome. The boat was a good size and the tour group was 11 people so not too large like some of them get. The places we visited were excellent, especially Poda Island where we had time to enjoy the beautiful, white sandy beach and a delicious lunch. Snorkelling was good and the equipment they provided was great quality and clean. Sunset from Phra Nang beach was very relaxing and snorkelling with the bioluminescent plankton was a unique experience. I loved the way the plankton lit up as you swished your arms around in front of your mask. I think the factor that made this trip so memorable was the excellent support and attention to detail given by our guides, Sakee & Stephane. Nothing was ever a problem for them and they went out of their way to ensure everybody had a good time. Really top class guides.

Pick up was very smooth and absolutely on time
The guides Kaw and Chris were absolutely brilliant .
Gave us a brief and informative chat about the islands. ( not over the top and no unnecessary H&S)
Walked the sands bars of white sand then had a swim , lovely relaxed ride to the ‘chicken ‘ to have photos taken.
Then a fantastic lunch stop on Poda . Really lovely lunch of Thai food.
More chilling and a swim the around to the other side of poda for a deep water reef snorkel which was really incredible.
So many beautiful fish and other sea life
Given plenty of time and kaw was so enthusiastic, especially with the clown fish ( Nemo) fish
Lovely boat ride where we saw tuna! To the pharang beach and the cave ( phallus cave)
Watch the sun go down and the bats head off and the for a night snorkel to see the luminescent plankton
This was a truly wonderful day and I would recommend this to everyone
Thank you guys and day I will never forget

I loved our day with Thalassa!

Sakee and Stephane were such amazing guides - it felt like being with friends right from the start. They were so welcoming and friendly and had everything taken care of. I really appreciated the attention to detail with cleaning the masks and making sure everyone was wearing lifejackets etc. It seems like a small thing but it's good to know that a company cares about its customers being safe and well. The itinerary itself was amazing - we did so much in such a short space of time.

There were so many things I loved but the delicious lunch on the island, sunset on Pranang beach and swimming with iridescent plankton were my absolute favourite moments. I'll always remember the amazing feeling of swimming with the stars 🙂

Amazing tour with helpful & very likable guides (Sakee & Stephane). Their expertise and assistance was truly excellent. They even took many photos of us all individually and including group pics, and sent them to us in quick time.

The food was excellent. Never had better food on any other day trip we've ever been on.
And the island they picked to provide lunch on was our favourite island on that day trip - Poda Island. What a great location to enjoy a feast.

One thing that sets this trip apart from all other snorkeling trips we've done in the past is that the gear was top notch. After speaking to other people on that trip, we found that none of us had to empty water from the mask at any time whilst snorkeling.
We've never been on any tour previously where the masks were this good and comfortable.
The night snorkeling was an experience we've never had before in which was to swim in waters lit up by bioluminescent plankton. You wouldn't know you were swimming amongst the plankton unless you moved your arms and legs to make them light up.

All up, this was a trip that left everyone smiling. We couldn't have wished for more. Definitely great value for money.

Thanks so much to Sakee & Stephane for making this a very special experience to forever remember.

Thanks for the two guides and the boat driver to make the experience memorable. The info was brief and interesting and their friendliness was just enough, not too invasive. The food and drinks were more than enough for the group and they were generously offering it during the whole trip.
We specially liked the snorkelling spot even if the water wasn't clear. I am not a good swimmer and really appreciated when one of the guides jumped into the water with us to show the best spots and I felt safer.
We expected much more from the plankton experience but that wasn't the guides' fault.

Before our Krabi trip I compared many tour companies and finally decided to go with Thalassa. They charge higher prices but proved totally worth it. The excursions were perfect. Our guide Sakeen is very experienced, responsible, reliable, knowledgeable and has a very cheerful personality. She helped us avoiding all the crowds and having the best time on the islands. We’ll go for the Hong island private tour with her again. Looking forward to it!
