It took a couple of frustrating tries with several tour companies before finally securing a tour with Delphine and Igor, and oh what an amazing time it was! Traveling solo to a country where English is barely spoken, I didn't quite know what to expect and how trustworthy tour operators were. Coupled with a reasonably severe level of motion sickness , I took a leap with Sweetdreamers and I was glad i didn't go with anyone else. From the start, there was prompt communication from the owners, no hidden fees, a small group to properly enjoy ourselves, friendly owners who obviously have sailed enough to handle the boat well and perfect scheduling for those with very limited time in Phuket.

We took the off beaten track to 3 of the most beautiful islands within distance from Chalong Bay, dived into beautiful translucent waters, swam amongst colourful fishes and corals and had Igor take the best care of everyone in ensuring that we were safe and enjoying every single moment.This is probably best for couples/ solo travelers wanting to avoid the crowds in the major touristy areas and simply looking for a peaceful day out.

Meals were provided onboard, and despite a mild backlash of sea-sickness, Igor was perfectly ready with anti nausea tablets and Coke, giving sound advice every now and then to make sure that i was okay.Igor was a hoot throughout the trip and it sure did help in getting everyone warmed up on the trip. Thanks for such an awesome-tastic day and I can't wait to come back for the next quick getaway!

P/s Captain is quite an avid photographer, for solo travelers - have no fear!

Thank you for an amazing day on the water. Delphine ... You made the booking process so easy; no stress. Igor, you are a great captain, gracious host!!! Marty and I loved every moment on the boat. You took us to some fantastic snorkelling sites, beautiful quiet beaches, and past gorgeous scenery. The lunch was delicious, the conversation entertaining, and we were sorry to see the day end..

Igor went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying a perfect day, and we did. We cannot say enough about this trip and would highly recommend it. Avoid the packed tour boats (we tried that) and enjoy a trip with sweetdreamers.

For my first time on a private charter, I did not know what to expect. From the minute we booked the cruise, we have excellent communication from the owners months before we arrived. Sweetdtreamers are honest, reasonable and very trustworthy. I strongly recommend them to anyone travelling alone or in a small group. They took such great care of us, made sure we were safe and comfortable at all times, well rehydrated and even provided a meal on board. We cruised the islands and went snorkelling, even fed fishes by hand. We saw starfish close up and my husband and I jumped of the side of the boat for the first time in our lives into gorgeous cool green aqua. It was really a dream come true. I didn't,t even get sick once. When the waters got rough, Igor would change from sail and sometimes to motor power. He took real care to ensure the ultimate experience was provided. The most impressive part of all, they did this naturally as they are genuining caring and kind people. We made some great friends on the trip and are still in contact with them. We are from Australia and now we have friends in Germany all thanks to Sweetdreamers. Celine and Gaelen from Western Australia.

"Relaxation" is the theme on board the intimate sail boat "Nadezhda" - destination: Coral Island!

Promptly picked up from our hotel at 10.30am for an 11am departure - we were greeted by Delphine and a brisk walk up the jetty to the boat where we met Captain Igor! 3 couples on board plus the Captain.

We enjoyed a leisurely ride from the marina to the first snorkeling location - it was an overcast day so visibility was lower, but nonetheless there were fish & coral everywhere to be seen. We snorkeled for about 20minutes whilst Igor prepared lunch and swam back to the boat for some refreshments (soft drinks and water are complimentary - beer is available at an extra cost).

Igor prepared a delicious lunch complete with curry, stir fry and fried rice (advise them if you have food allergies and they are only happy to supplement) - Igor is a vegan, so vegans can rejoice!!

Then onto the fabulous Coral Island - the sun came out & the fish were everywhere (and hungry too) - Igor brings along his bananas and bread for the fish to eat, throwing them in front of you whilst you are snorkeling and watch as a swarm of small hungry fish surround you! Don't worry they swim away if you make to much movement - grab some fruit and hold it in front you whilst you snorkel and you can watch them come up and eat out of your hand!!

We then move on to our last beautiful island, Banana Island, for a snorkel and a beer under the trees - what a day!

Igor is a hoot - great sense of humour and loves his work! Ask him about his stories sailing his boat Nadezhda from Australia to Singapore!!!

Thanks to Igor for such a brilliant day - will definitely be coming back on our next trip to Phuket - see you soon!!!

For a very intimate relaxing day out, this is the tour for you!
