After finding their correct website, we booked two private trips with this company - 4 islands and East islands. (Seems there are other lanta long tails on Ko lanta!?!) Nice clean boats and fantastic(!) service by the guides. Appreciated that the guides were on top of knowing which stops to go to next based on their communication with other guides who let them know how crowded the sites were. 
One of the guides went above and beyond by diving over and over again about 10 meters to the ocean floor when I stupidly dropped my phone down there. I thought it was gone forever but he miraculously found it- I’ll never forget that and am so incredibly grateful!
 Lunch was great, we had two amazing tofu vegetarian dishes but one of the lunches was not vegetarian. Was also picked up 10 minutes late on one of the days and the transportation was not as nice as any of the other tours I did in Thailand. These were unfortunate given the cost of these trips which was much higher than any other tours we did, All in all though, a great choice based on the guides and sites you get to visit.

Fantastic tour organised by Susanna at Sun Island. Collected by traditional longtail boat from Lanta Old Town. Fantastic day spent snorkeling around beautiful reefs, then a super tasty Lunch in an isolated beach, just gorgeous! We organised to be dropped off at Koh Kradan at the end of the tour, easily organised by Sun Island, nothing is too much to ask.Saw numerous groups while we were out & about on our personal longtail boat, 40 people at a time, then a shrill whistle to call you back to the boat, this may be a cheaper option but the Sun Island tour is a far more authentic & personal experience. Would definitely recommend this tour if you're in Lanta.

So happy to have experienced such a wonderful snorkeling tour. We booked online with no hitches, and they picked us up on time. The drive across the island was beautiful. We were met at the pier by our guide and were elated to get on our own private boat as opposed to being herded onto a boat filled with a ton of people. We went to three different stops, each one unique and beautiful. The food was excellent, and they special-ordered a vegetarian meal for us. We loved having the freedom to go wherever we wanted to go since it was just us on the boat. The captain was very nice and knowledgeable and accommodating. We will definitely use them again in the future!

My boyfriend and I booked a tour with Sun Island tours and we were SUPER happy we did. We booked easily online, and per Suzanne's suggestion we chose an early morning private tour. The driver picked us up at our hotel, right on time at 7am. We had bumpy ride over to Lanta Old Town, which took about 30 mins. We were fascinated with this little fishing hamlet. Much more “Real Thai” than what we had seen on the rest of Koh Lanta. Our guide ( Mr Wan ? ) Was right there to meet us at our truck and walked us out to the pier. His english was good. We were so excited to get onto our OWN private boat for the day. The boat is loud, but sitting at the front of the boat, was not a problem. We snacked on fruit and sweet snacks until we got to our first snorkel spot, about an hour away. It was really nice clear water and I saw my 1st Nemo fish of the day. We went to our next spot, but there were too many boats. So our captain took us to the other side where there where not any other boats, BONUS. It was nice to have the flexibility and such an attentive captain. From there we went to the Emerald cave. (Morakot Cave) Wan had a flash light and navigated us threw the tunnel. Just as we arrived, the other guests left and we had the whole place to ourselves. This place was amazing, it’s like being inside the Jurassic park movie ! Definitely the highlight of our vacation. After the cave we motored to a tiny beach and had an amazing Thai lunch. My boyfriend is vegetarian so we were happy they could accommodate us. Heading back to Koh lanta we made a one more stop to go snorkeling. Side note-the longtail boat has no bathroom , so I was relieved to use the public facilities in Old town. Also, they only accept cash, but there were ATMs at the pier where we were dropped off. It was a great day and we would absolutely book again.

Wanted to see the other islands during 'green season ' via the famous traditional Longtail boat. What started with an email with Angie, turned out to be a memorable part of our trip. The crew was helpful and friendly, Peter our guide was very helpful and fun , great person to talk to. The weather was not the best due to monsoons but the private beaches we visited that only had us to inhabit and enjoy was phenomenal. The fishing was also accommodated that my partner enjoyed. Seafood lunch was scrumptious. Thank you! We will use this company again.
