Pros: -Emerald cave is pretty cool! Quite a long cave with amazing hidden beach. -The curry at lunchtime was delicious. Cons: -The main one was we didn't feel safe ... At all. We ended the trip just being thankful we were alive.. No joke. The boat was struggling and rocking like crazy and everyone was getting soaked from sea spray. -Guides didn't really talk at all. -the first two islands you don't get to set foot on the island.. Just swim near it.. Saw better fish on Koh Lanta and the snorkels and flippers were rubbish. -the lunch island required everyone to struggle through about 50m of water with dead coral and rocks to get to shore. Lunch was just sitting on a rock under a tree.. No seats etc. Overall, we felt so unsafe we're just glad we made it back. Not enough cool stuff to see and no decent coral. You spend most of the time on a boat getting soaked and everyone looked miserable.

We had a great time! The crew was attentive and professional and the day tour wad exactly as described. First snorkelling spot no big deal, second was better but the part we loved most was the emerald cave and the lunch time at Koh Ngai which to us felt like paradise. We even think about staying there for 2-3 nights. Overall an excellent experience, highly recommend!

We had a great time on this tour and would recommend it. It would be even better if there was more communication between the crew and passengers, for instance the Emerald cave portion can be a bit daunting since you're herded through the water into a pitch black cave with waves pushing back and forth and sharp rocks on all sides. A bit of guidance (i.e. we will be going through a cave for ten minutes, watch your head, stay together etc) would have done a lot of good! But yes overall it's an amazing day and you will be hard pressed to find beaches nicer than this in the world.

The staff was great and showed us beautiful places. Getting to the Emerald Cave is an experience like no other! Lunch was good, on a beautiful beach. You do drive far in the boat to reach these places so there’s a lot of riding time. Overall would recommend

My girlfriend and I went on the 4 island snorkling tour, which included the Emerald Cave which was a spot of heaven. We were picked up at our resort in the morning and dropped off after, which was handy. The crew had some english and they were extremely kind and helpful. During the trip we were handed chopped pineapples and watermelons along with ice cold water. Very nice indeed. We did 2 snorkling sessions (equipment provided) each 40 mins approx and then we headed to the cave. The cave was only accessible via a tunnel during low-tide. Life jackets were given and the crew had waterproof bags to take the cameras inside. It was just perfect. Inside the cave was a little oasis, an untouched piece of nature. Spectacular! After we headed to our last stop where we had a very nice lunch right at the beach in golden sand and breathtaking scenery. The lunch was very tasty and also included water or a can of coke. It was a very nice day out. We suggest loads of sun cream and some little snacks to take. Happy snorkelling! :)
