A great day for a family! Our sons were 13 and 16 and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Very punctual pick-up from our hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned van driven by safe driver, with useful and interesting information provided throughout our journey (but also plenty of time for just watching landscape or napping 😉). Interesting visit to turtle conservation centre and time for a coffee and chat by the beach.
The snorkeling part of the day was well organised, with snorkels provided (and life jacket for boat), 50TBH each to rent flippers (not necessary but we enjoyed having them). Boat had sun shelter which was good as we did get some sun throughout the day despite sun cream (more tan than burn). Good opportunity to see tropical fish in 3 different places and get amazing photos taken underwater - definitely a memory for life!
After snorkeling, we went to a quiet, local restaurant by the water where our guide ordered some amazing dishes that we all enjoyed - Tom Yum soup with prawns, fried fish, chicken with cashews and vegetables and fried pork, rice. We were so full we skipped dinner that evening!
If you think you’ll get hungry during the day, bring some breakfast bars or dry crackers. Water was provided but we also brought our own.
Then a comfortable drive home - some of us were definitely snoozing after a BIG day!
Not cheap but highly recommend. It was especially great to chat with Yui and learn more about her life and Thai culture.
