A highlight of my whole holiday. We originally were supposed to do the sunrise tour but I fell sick the night before and they very kindly answered our email after business hours (6pm) and let us switch to a few days later (we were very thankful).
The tour was amazing, we loved going into the cave and the canoes as well as the beaches and views (we even saw a dolphin). There was a lot more to do rather then just sitting on a beach which my partner and I liked.

Compared to other boats we only had 13 people on ours which was wonderful as you could walk around and wasn’t crowed

The staff were lovely and couldn’t have been nicer. They took photos of us if we wanted and answered any questions and provided medical assistance when someone fell over.

The food was wonderful wow! So much food! Morning tea (rice paper rolls), fruit and cake, lunch, more fruit and chocolate and drinks throughout.

Was the best trip and wished we had more time to do another.

We took Simba sea trips for phang nga bay and beyond in December. While initially I wasn’t sure if it would be worth the money as they are expensive compared to other vendors but after reading amazing reviews of TA, I decided to take the tour while we were in Phuket.
The tour is so well organised - right from pick up to the drop off!

We were picked sharp on time and also were sent reminder and details a day before for pick up. We got picked up from our hotel and the transport was great with just 4 more people .

As soon as we reached the departing point , we were offered tea / coffee and some quick byte. We were taken given a brief of the day and quickly then we got onto our speedboat.

The best bit being we were a group of 10 people making it so much personal experience. Our tour guide was Jenny - very calm and cheerful lady answering all questions very patiently and making the whole day interactive :)

We started with cave walking at koh panak and save the mangrove trees and then went to Hong island canoeing , and got an hour at James Bond island , visited the koh yo nai and fishing village - and had very delicious Thai lunch at a beautiful restaurant with lovely views .

After our first stop at koh panak we were offered more food so it was a day full of eating , drinking , sightseeing and adventure ! Super fun packed day :)

We were also given an hour in end to swim and relax at the beach :)

Jenny also had fresh banana cake and fresh and juicy fruits to enjoy for healthy eats .

It was such a fun day and my 8 year old says it was the best day during our Thailand trip .

Thank you Jenny and Simba trips . We would surely come back again to explore other trips with you :)

Also worth mentioning she did take lots of pictures for us and helped create beautiful memories and she knew the perfect way to get the pictures :)

Kind Regards
Pooja

My coworker recommended Simba Sea Trips and in particular the Phang Nga Bay tour. My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Phuket and had only one day in which we hadn't planned activities yet - we struggled in choosing between Phang Nga Bay and Phi Phi Islands, but ultimately chose the former. We couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The day began with our driver showing up on the dot to pick us up from our hotel at 5:40am. From there, we picked up a few more people who were going to be on our tour before arriving at the Phuket Marina. A note for those who tend to get cold easily - I would recommend bringing more layers or even a jacket because in the early morning, especially when we are moving super fast in the speedboat, it's windy and can get pretty cold. I seemed to be the only person who had an issue with this but thought I would provide the PSA just in case.

We really enjoyed all of the activities that they had planned for us, and our tour guide, Harry, along with the rest of the crew, was absolutely fantastic. He was so knowledgeable about the area and history, but also had a great sense of humor so we loved hearing him speak. He and the crew went out of their way to make sure we felt taken care of, from offering us snacks and water continuously through the trip, to making sure we were routinely sanitizing our hands. Harry also graciously offered to take photos for all of us throughout the day, and then emailed the photos to us before we left. My favorite part of the trip was our lunch at a cute little island where we also saw petrol stations and rubber trees, but the entire experience was extremely well run and organized.

We are so happy we decided to take this day trip (despite only having gotten 3 hours of sleep because we were at a music festival the night before). Would absolutely recommend Simba Sea Trips to anyone who's looking for a great day trip in Phuket.

This was nothing short of spectacular! The trip was super well-organised, we got picked up on time, etc. Our guide Harry was brilliant, funny and very knowledgeable about the sights we visited. The speed boat is awesome and goes very fast - kind of a cool experience. We loved every single stop on the tour although our favourites probably were the caves where we met monkeys in the mangrove forest and the sea kayaking stop where we saw incredible limestone islands (think Ha Long Bay) and cool wildlife (we spotted a sea snake, big lizzards, etc). The food provided was nice and the lunch was among the better organised tour food experiences we have had. I cannot recommend this excursion enough! If you go in the morning, you are also back at your resort by 2-3pm so you even have half the day on the beach still.

Dear di159, Wow, what a lovely review, thank you! It is so lovely to read all you wonderful comments. It has been an incredibly tough time for our industry in Phuket that relies solely on tourism. The staff as so happy to be out on the water again and doing what they love. Harry is so passionate about Phang Nga Bay and it obviously showed. It is a great tour that many people overlook but I think it has so many wonderful experiences that it shouldn't be missed. It's so great to read that you thought that also and thanks for recommending it to others. We really hope to see you again if you are every back in Phuket. Best regards, Andrea

Everything from the very first minute of being picked up to being dropped off was so efficient and well organised. Everyone is so friendly (shout out to Patrick and crew who were amazing and so friendly). It was such an amazing day, could not recommend it enough! We were also the only people at James bond Island as we were on the sunset tour... Worth every single penny!

Believe all the 5 star reviews! The tour lives up to them in every way. Harry and the rest of the team took wonderful care of us all day - from a seamless hotel pickup to getting us to the islands before anyone else to giving us delicious meals, snacks, and beverages at every turn, to ensuring we were all well informed about the itinerary, bathrooms, etc. The boat was well equipped and comfortable with only 8 of us on the tour. The day was jam packed with sights and activities while somehow still so relaxing thanks to the impeccable hospitality. I had so much fun I wanted to go on their Phi Phi island tour but sadly it was booked for the rest of my trip -- so book in advance! My only other tip is to be sure you bring cash to tip the boat crew and sea kayaking guides.

This has got to be the best tour I’ve ever done in over 40 countries. Staff, service, food, views, privacy. Literally incredible. Just booked the PhiPhi tour with the same company as I wouldn’t want to go with anyone else. Patrick, the captain and the boat hand were 5 stars and made our trip one to remember. Worth the extra few pennies. 👌👌👌

We have all worked so hard to make Simba what it is and it's so lovely to be starting to get more visitors to Phuket to enjoy it. Hope your Phi Phi tour is just as wonderful, I'm sure it will be!

We originally booked the new sunset tour and were contacted the day before saying that there weren't enough people to run it and given the choice of switching to another tour, or a refund. We were a bit disappointed as we particularly wanted to see Koh Panyee, the floating island but fortunately we were in Thailand for long enough that we could swap to the Phang Nga Bay tour.

We're so pleased that we did as we had a wonderful time. It was a VERY early start but totally worth it as Harry and his crew made sure that our small group reached each of the sights before any other tour groups, particularly important for the busy 'James Bond' island which I imagine gets pretty hard to move around on once the crowds turn up!

We were looked after so well with food and drinks on board, towels and motion sickness pills provided for those who needed them. Harry was extremely knowledgeable about the different rock formations and biology on the island, the people of the Muslim village, and very willing to take hundreds of photographs for us. Excellent service from Simba and would thoroughly recommend them.

Dear Hayley1508, Thanks for sharing your experience with Simba. We are so happy that you were able to change to another tour. Sadly it has been a bit quiet in Phuket and so we have been forced to close a few tours. It's great to read that you thought the early start was worth it and that Harry took great care of you. Good to hear you got lots of photos taken too. Thanks so much for recommending us also. It means a lot to us! We hope to see you again. Best regards, Andrea Simba Sea Trips

We went on their 'Phang Nga Bay and Beyond' Tour and everything ran like clockwork from the very beginning. There were only about 15 persons on the trip and there was ample room on the boat. We had James Bond Island to ourselves and we saw many unique attractions that were not on other itineraries. There were lots of snacks and drinks available and we stopped for lunch in a wonderful little restaurant (much nicer than a picnic on the beach with lots of other boats or the packed Panyee Island restaurants). The crew were most attentive and our guide, Jane, was wonderful. It was my 3rd visit to James Bond Island, but this trip was exceptional. Thank you Simba Sea Trips for an amazing day.

Our family recently did a day tour with Simba and had a great day with Harry. Our group was 15 which was big enough. Early pick up meant we got to each spot before the crowds. Seeing the sunrise was pretty, James Bond Island was beautiful and loved the sea kayaking,our guides were very friendly and enjoyed a good laugh. We walked through caves to reach the mangroves. We had a short stop at a private beach for a swim which was lovely and the lunch stop at the beautiful and quiet Koh Yah was delicious, my husband and son had the chicken burger and say it was the best they'd ever had. Plenty of cool drinks and snacks available. Harry even picked up other tourists rubbish left behind on the beach to keep these places clean and he cares for the environment. For a small group tour I'd definitely recommend Simba Sea Tours.
