We had a fantastic day at Coral Island with marine.red and it was nothing short but perfect. Booking the tour and meeting at the marina went like a breeze thanks to the valuable support from the team. Then during our full day tour at Coral Island we could fully enjoy our time with the very thoughtful crew and guides. Higly recommended!

Thanks a lot for your review and appreciation of our trip! We bring our guests directly to the marina pier to board the boats. Our guests do not need to use the public buses to travel across the pier. It's much more comfortable. We always try to think about small details making the whole experience more pleasant.

We did a tour with Andy's Scuba diving and they rented Marine Red's Diamond Speedboat for the Scuba/snorkeling tour. The boat and captain James were awesome! They took us around to several great spots, adjusted to weather conditions, and helped keep us away from the holiday crowds.

My husband did a dive course (Enriched Air) with this company and I booked two fun dives. We stayed in one of Gilles Villa which was in a bad need of renovation. We asked for the login in advance but had to wait two days until we then got it. My husband had to fulfil the theory within a short time. I asked for vegetarian food on the boat and this was being confirmed. The diving and the boat was ok, the instructor was friendly. The vegetarian food got forgotten and nobody really seemed to feel sorry or thought he should apologise. We told Gilles and the dive instructor from the beginning that Lucas needs his certification card very soon since we were about to go for a liveaboard trip a few weeks later. The instructor told us, easy, they will send it to our villa before leaving the next day. This didn't happened. I contacted the instructor and Gilles at least 10 times until they managed to put the certification in the system! We then asked for a certification card again (credit card form, like from PADI, very useful and practical when travelling). Gilles again promised to send it, nothing happened. I again contacted him several times without even getting an answer. After the 5th time contacting him (!!) he then replied that SSI is not giving this certification card. I think this company is not taking paying customers seriously. Very disappointing to feel ripped off and not appreciated as the ask for pretty high prices. Can definitely not recommend this company. There are far way better ones out there!

Asking several times for something that does not exist is not very helpful. We live in the digital age and certifications are delivered online. Our prices are about 20% cheaper than other centers as we own our boats and do not need to outcontract anything.

Amazing day with Red Marine! We were picked up from our villa and escorted to the marina pier, where James welcomed us. We then jumped onto a bus that took us to the pier. We speedily boarded the catamaran and right after a couple of minutes were already sailing towards Phi Phi. It was just ten of us for such a big boat, and could wander around freely. There was plenty of space where to soak in the sun and enjoy the splash of the water while navigating. We made several stops throughout the day and were taken to away-from-the-crowds spots. All the gear to snorkel and kayak was provided, as well as breakfast, lunch, snacks, fruit and plenty of drinks. We could always count on James for anything we needed. He was there to take care of us and to make sure we had fun. All in all, an excellent service in a modern catamaran for a great day out! More than highly recommended!!

Each time I have been to Phuket I have been disappointed by the crowd and how a huge amount of tourists can kill an amazing place. I made some research and I found Gilles providing private boat for a day for a very reasonable price. I had one of my best experience so far. He brought us to a lovely place where we have been able to dive and he also brought us to a beach without anyone !... just amazing to enjoy such a wonderful place with family and friends only. Gilles is also absolutely amazing with kids and even after we came back, my children asked me to go with him again when we will go back to Phuket :-)
