This company has no regard for its customers safety or comfort. We were told when we booked that if the weather conditions were bad that they would allow us to postpone and that they would contact the agent who booked it for us and give them the option....
No phone call, no option, just a terrible time in a small boat with 3 metre waves and 30 people fearing for their personal safety.
The only comfort the tour guide offered was that 'we were lucky because the waves were 4 metres the day before.'
Life is cheap in these Asian countries, and this company epitomizes that.

There were about 28 of us on the speedboat travelling to Koh Tao on a day when it clearly was far too dangerous to be out. Young children and adults were projectile vomiting, with the staff already prepared with sea sickness pills and black doggie bin liners. This should not really be allowed to happen. We were never told where the life jackets were, which on several occasions, it felt like that might be nice information to have. Clients should be forewarned that sea sickness might be an inevitable part of the day, then at least they can make an informed decision as to whether they want to take part in this trip. The destinations are a bit touristy and nothing very special.

We used this company to get us to the full moon party for NYE. We paid 1200 baht which included transfers to and from the hotel and a speedboat to and from koh samui. The minibus transfer was on time, and the staff organised the speedboat transfers really well. Definitely recommend it!

We took two trips with this company the first to Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan on the snorkelling trip and the second trip was to Ang Thong National Park. Both trips were brilliant for different reasons.

The Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan trip allows for a brilliant snorkelling experience, you get to see lots of tropical fish and corals which really light up when the sun shines. The lunch on this trip was adequate - nothing special. Wasn't sure about the soup which seemed to be just a broth.

The Ang Thong Marine Park trip was amazing and one of the highlights of our trip. The sights were fabulous, especially liked the green lake. Yes the climb is steep, but it is literally about only 80 steps and takes less than 5 minutes with reasonable fitness and is totally worth it for the view and the photo opportunity. The lunch on this trip was one of the best meals we had on our holiday. Lots of it, tasty and the tempura prawns were fab. They even cooked a fresh batch when they seen how the group devoured the first batch!

Did not like Natalie the monkey so much - not sure about little monkeys on leads, it doesn't sit right with me, but that's me.

We were lucky enough to have Jimi as our tour guide on both occasions. He was very funny and made sure he kept everyone entertained on the boat trip from start to finish. He is a very enthusiastic guide and clearly loves this job and meeting people. I give him 5 out of 5 - excellent!

Not so excellent is the toilet on the boat, smelly and unhygienic. It was not pleasant to use. Also when the boat is full up, there is not much room for passengers to move about. I would also suggest that you have breakfast at your hotel before coming on this trip because if you are hungry you will stay hungry until lunch as the breakfast only consists of a slice of toast and mediocre tea and coffee.

Whilst these are negative points, they did not taint our experience of this trip at all. We had an excellent time on both days.
