“Great operator”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you are going snorkelling or the like in Phuket this is a great company to go with. The price was reasonable and the operator went out of their way to make the trip enjoyable. The food they provided for lunch was fantastic. The guide was a French bloke called Eric, but he was really awesome. His quiet sidekick was cool too. In fact he was probably the funniest French guy since Marcel Marceau. Eric, if you're reading this please remember not to take bananas to New Zealand next time!

It seems to be almost impossible to find a secluded place to snorkel in Phuket, but Offspray do their best to keep you away from the hoards. When compared to the other operators we saw, they also take far fewer people on their trips which makes it a lot more comfortable.

One caution to other visitors though. We took a few beers with us as they don't sell beer on the boat (lots of water etc available) and we found that the other people on the boat seemed to think it was ok to drink beer they didn't bring with them.

Offspray and especially Eric, thanks for a fun day out!

Hi Guys , Thanks for the review , glad you enjoyed all aspects of the day . Perhaps next time bring an ice box with a padlock on it to keep your beers safe while you are in the water snorkeling : )

All the best

Hi Allan ,

Glad to enjoyed your day with us and having multilingual staff is important to have whenever possible as Phuket is an International Tourist destination . The fact that you personally speak 4 languages would make you perfect for working on the boat ....Are you looking for a job ?!

Kind Regards

“Wonderful Phi phi islands tour”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We used these guys just the once but found them excellent to deal with. Eoin and Eric were very nice and curious and clearly enjoyed what they did.The breakfast and, in particular, the lunch was very good. Best picnic at a beach I have ever had, that is for sure. The guys running the boats were very good and everyone made it back safe and sound, what else could you ask for?

I would recommend these guys to everyone. Excellent, and thanks

Danny and Megan

Hi Danny ,

Thanks for taking a few minutes to post a review about your trip to Phi Phi with Offspray . Owen and Eric always have a good time on the boat . I think the key to having good staff is finding people who really enjoy what they do .....and then this rubs off in a positive way on the Guests .

We always go that extra mile to give you - our Guests the best staff we can find and supply the best snorkeling gear and the best quality picnic lunch etc ....If we didn't do this and if we didn't limit our number of Guests to small groups then we would be no different to the majority of the operators in Phuket who run trips to the Phi Phi Islands .

The trip was a pleasure to organize for you and I hope we'll have the pleasure of having you and Megan aboard in the future .

All the best , Giles

“Our favorite day trip in Southern Thailand”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We did several trips on boats while in Koh Samui and Phuket and we enjoyed our trip with this company the most . Better organised and much more friendly staff . Although parts of Phi Phi were crowded the Guides made an effort to show us places less corwded and also snorkeled with us . The snorkeling on the Gulf of Thailand side is uncomparable to the Andaman side , we actually saw fish here and loads of them ! The food and service put on throughout the day was excellent and this was a day we will not forget for a while .
