Re: Island hopping day trips

In Ko Lanta and would love advice on what are best tour/ boat companies to use for day trips to other islands like ko phi phi? Not sure we want to do any snorkling but definitely would live to explore other beaches islands etc...

There is a great boat trip run by a French guy Didier. He has a purpose built inboard Longtail equipt with table and doesnt use disposable plastic food containers (important to try and reduce plastic use here). He is called Lanta Tourism, and does around Lanta and down to 2 of the 4 islands. Is is personalised and not mass tourism. He is only booked direct or a couple of other places, you may see his posters about. He is based in Saladan left of the police box at the far end of the street.

If you are staying at a good resort, they should be able to organize something for you. We stayed at the Banana Garden and Annie had organized us a private long tail boat trip of the nearby islands, which was cheaper than a more formal group tour. Unfortunately, it rained that day and so we had to join a formal tour group going out to Koh Rok, where it was clear and sunny.
