You will get to see all the trademark attractions like 'James Bond Island'. it's a full day of sightseeing, canoeing and swimming. The boat is a bit old and tired but it's big and there is plenty of room to move around. Well organised and the scenery is truly stunning! Lunch was good and tasty, but not great. With pick up and drop off from our hotel this was an easy, great day out.

Although their boat is little old but staff is very co-operative and they give you more services than you pay for. Their food is really delicious and in tour price of Bhat 1000 they serve you at least Bhat 400 food so they are charging Bhat 600 for tour, which is nothing for the beautiful tour . This was my second trip with some of same staff in last 4 years.

This tour was amazing, crew were excellent. Lunch provided was very yummy, some of the other tours were very crowded & herded like cattle at the various destinations. All up a fantastic experience, highly recommend.

We arranged to go on this tour through the resort at which we stayed. Pick up occurred exactly as arranged and the bus drove us as quickly as possible to the jetty where we left for the day. It's the big boat and the day is explained and organized effectively. We took canoes three times, twice through limestone caves and once to the "private" beach. We had the same canoeist each time. The idea is that people tip the person at the end of the day. We didn't understand that and others on the tour did not either. It explains the pokes in the back plus gestures to an island and sleeping motions that our canoeist made. The beach was awful. The sea tasted of bicarb soda.. The atmosphere on board was friendly and everyone chatted away.. it was fun. Lunch was average. The food was cold and mostly fried. There was no effort made for vegetarians. Afternoon tea was fruit without cutlery so everyone touched it. Fortunately we were first as opposed to last for lunch. We spent a short time on the island. There's a lot of encouragement given to spend money that's all I would say. We enjoyed the day. We paid 2000TB each.

My partner and I went with this cruise from a referral from a tour vendor. Couldn't be happier. We were collected on time from our hotel via mini bus, driven to the pier, boarded the boat and briefed on the islands we were going to. After a couple of superb canoes into caves, we had a lunch prepared for us. Food was adequate. James Bond island is heavily populated with tourists and stalls selling trinkets. The last island we were allowed to swim in the ocean - the cove also had monkeys. Don't touch them - they are aggressive. Overall, everything was well orchestrated. The cruise was well staffed and with experienced canoeists to canoe on your part if you're feeling lazy. A great day out.
