We had a fantastic day aboard river rovers! Unfortunately Bernard was not available to join us, but his wife Palita was a wonderfully friendly, funny and kind host. The boat is slow, very slow - so if you want to roar around the seas this...More

We had a lovely half-day trip with our daughters 3 and 5 years old. Everything was perfect, kids were happy: they were kayaking with us and playing with members of staff at the boat. Together we caught a big fish on our way to the...More

One of the top experiences I've had on a tour. The monkey jungle cruise was so much fun for our family. Kayaking the mangroves, feeding the monkeys, seeing a working fish farm a deserted island and diving off the boat were all amazing and such...More

We booked three island trips before arriving in Thailand. One with River Rovers and two with other bigger companies. All three were within $10-20 USD difference per person so about the same price. The one with River Rovers (Phang Nga Through The Backdoor) was by...More

Skip Phuket for Aug Trip? (4 Replies)
Tentative Itinerary 10 Nights in Thailand: Bangkok (2 nights) Koh Samui (4 nights) Phuket (4 nights) This will be our first time to Thailand. Is it worth it to spend the time and money to visit Phuket in Aug - rainy season? We love the sun/beach and we were interested in doing John Gray's Sea Canoe, Phuket Sail Tours, River Rovers, Simba Sea Trips, etc. Are those excursions worth the $ in August -- or are there comparable adventures in Ko Samui? If we skipped Phuket, we'd...More

Hi kl237 (is that your real name? If so you must be a robot.) I wasn't going to answer this as you mention my tour, the sailing bit, but as no-one else has I will have a go at it. August can be wet, it is in the wet season. Usually the rain is very localised, and doesn't last long. More often than not the days are really nice. Like today, a bit of cloud about, but warm. Very pleasant. Some of the tours you mention go to Au Phang Nga (Phang Nga Bay) this is on the east side of Phuket,...More

Hello Normally in August Samui`s weather is better than Phuket so on that score i`d give Phuket a miss. I think the way to go would be to book nothing for Phuket get to Samui & monitor the Phuket weather & take it from there. If I did go to Phuket i`d be monitoring the water & weather conditions before I considered any boat trips or water activities as seas in August can be dangerous & Thailands maritime safety record at times has left a bit to be desired. Good luck with your...More

Hi all! Am going to Phuket in just over a week and before I go just wanted to let everyone know I wanted to listen to forum members and go out with Captain Mark from Phuket Sail tours. Mark bent over backwards to try and accommodate us but due to PPS (Painful parenting syndrome) my first time travelling parents took too long to make a decision on a date and we missed out. Mark even recommended we try River Rovers and let us know he would put us on a cancellation list. What a lovely...More
