We have recently returned from a fabulous trip to Phuket. While we were there we chartered a luxury speedboat with Royal Andaman Cruises. There were 11 of us on the boat and we all had an awesome day cruising and snorkelling around the islands near Phi Phi. The staff couldn't have been more attentive, they were so friendly and had all been with the company for many years. Jack was our host for the day and he was brilliant. We loved our day out and were very lucky with the weather as it was beautiful blue skies. I would highly recommend getting a luxury private speed boat if you are travelling in a large group as it is gives you the flexibility to move on from places if too busy with other tour companies. Many thanks to Jack and his crew we will definitely be back.

We booked our day trip to Phi Phi Island online through an agent excursions pro. They sent us with the Royal Andaman Cruise Co. We were picked up exactly on time from our hotel at Surin Beach. After the whole group arrived a photo of each family/group was taken and then we proceeded to the boat. We as a family chose to sit in the front of the boat as it is the most fun. But if you don't enjoy a bumpy ride its better to sit at the back. The see can get quite choppy. Our main guide was Jay and he was great fun. They took us to all the islands and there was ample time to enjoy them. It was only at the last beach that we did not want to leave as we knew we were heading back to the pier at Phuket. They took a video of the whole group right through the day. But then they wanted to sell that for 1600 Bhat which I thought was a bit much. Though they were going to only give us the clips relevant to our family. Also the magnets they sell at the pier are way more expensive than what you get in the market. So its better to buy them elsewhere. On the whole it was a great trip. really had a great day. Even the weather Gods played along and we had a nice cloudy day. Thanks Jay for the great time!

We were just back from Phuket. We booked a day trip to Phi Phi island from Royal Andaman Cruise Co; Ltd on 23rd November 2013. The weather was good on that day, the scenery was good. The boat was clean and the tour guide was very friendly. Unfortunately, our money has stolen while we went for snorkeling. Besides us, there was another couple who also the same boat with us, they encountered the same problem. This was the 1st time we encountered this issue. Our Phuket trip turned to sour and boring after this incident happened. As we have to go to their Tourist Police Station to make report and etc. After the investigation by the police, the police also could not help us to find out who is the "thief". Due to this bad experience and make us call off our plan to James Bond island. I strongly advise the boat company install a CCTV on the boat for the safety of their customer / tourist. I did not know who is the "thief", he / she could be their tour guide, crew or other tourists on the same boat. Please be careful your money and hope the boat company will install a CCTV on the boat as soon as possible. I just wanna share my experience and I do not hope you guys encounter the same incident like me.
