We were on the same trip as Andrea S (below) and it shows how everyone have different ideas as to what they want.The start was terrible,left in the sun and heat wondering if the vehicles were going to turn up. Our organiser phoned the company and she was told that the vehicles will be there in 10 minutes which turned into 45 minutes a total of 1hour 30 minutes late.However I know it was up to Andaman to make sure things went smoothly but I have a feeling that the vehicles picked up other fares at the jetty whilst waiting for us (although we were on time).
Once actually with Andaman things did improve.The speedboat ride was very 'bumpy', fun at first but got rather tiresome,I think they were trying to make up time.The canoeing in the caves was brilliant and truly amazing once in the centre of the caves with vegetation and monkeys.(There was an extra charge for this which we weren't told about until the end of the tour)
Next we were taken on another bumpy ride to Phang Nga and James Bond island which was very crowded,they did give us the option of just sailing round it for photos but the majority wanted to land.
The next ride took us to the back of the village where we were to have our BBQ lunch, and thought we were going to a small local restaurant.After walking through the village to the other side we were amazed to see a massive restaurant by the sea with lots of other boats and tours.The food was good but some of our party were very wary as the food was bbq'd but kept on hot plates.(Fortunately no one suffered ill effects).
Next, after them explaining that it was quite a way to decent snorkelling we decided just to settle for the beach as no one fancied another long speedboat ride there and back.
After this it was a short ride back and fortunately the vehicles were waiting for us to take us back to the jetty where we boarded the tender back to the ship.
On the whole I did enjoy the day (which was not cheap).
