Although this is third time we've been to Krabi and took a day tour to Hong Island, we were still impressed by the smooth arrangement and kind consideration from Elizabeth. The HomeStay at Air's House was a big surprise and my two 12 years girls enjoyed very much to visit the local village wearing the traditional dress. Air is such a nice guy and the whole family is very welcoming. We had the best Thai food in Krabi at Air's house for dinner. The best moment for the whole trip was waking up in the morning on the balcony (they must call it something else) with birds' singing and little squirrel passing by. Thank you Air to share your lovely house with us.

We (my 20 year old niece, my 2 kids aged 8 & 10 and myself) had a fantastic day out with Andaman Camp & Cruise. Petra was the most perfect guide - friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic - and it was great to meet up with Elizabeth and her son Noah at one of our stops. We'd been on a speed boat trip a few days prior and were a bit disappointed so Elizabeth recommended the Hong Island Trip which was just perfect. Beautifully paced with just enough action for everyone to enjoy without feeling rushed. The food was amazing - an added benefit. I cannot recommend this tour company highly enough. We would LOVE to return and do the camping trip to Bamboo Island. Maybe next year.....

We booked 2 trips prior to our visti to Ao Nang. We had booked the Phi Phi Island trip and the Hong Island trip including kayaking and we weren't dissapointed. The booking process was excellent with Elizabeth returning my emails within 24 hours and recommending parts of the trips which i wasnt sure off. The payment system was very clear also.
Our first trip was with Sun who picked us up punctually at 8am as advised on the email. He is a great cheery man and he transferred us to the pier to start the trip. We met Elizabeth who told us for the 1st trip we would go with Sun and then our 2nd trip she would take us to Hong.
We set off and Sun was full of information of the local area and really made us feel at ease with his smiley cheery manner. We were so happy there was only the 2 of us on the boat when you see other boats literally crammed full of tourists. We headed 1st to Bamboo island which was deserted and we had the beach to ourselves for around an hour. The snorkelling was great with the sea nice and calm and plenty of fish to see. Then we were off to Phi Phi. We missed out Phi Phi Don due to how busy it has become and went on to Phi Phi Lay. We stopped 1st off in a beautiful lagoon where again the snorkelling was excellent and then to the famous Maya Maya bay. What a stunning location this is but is was very busy as you would expect due to its popularity. We again stopped around an hour and then we were off for lunch in a secluded area close by. The food, wow, what can i say. We were served several dishes of Authentic Thai currys, soups and stir frys along with Sun's special chicken which was beatiful.
Next we were off to Monkey Island to see the Monkeys which my wife really wanted to see. Its was great to spend a bit of time watching these wild animals run around the beach and again the snorkelling was great with Sun pointing us to the best areas around the bay.
Then we were off to the last stop of the day which was in a secluded bay where there was only a couple of other boats around. The snorkelling was again good but the current was strong so if you struggle swimming they have lifejackets for you to wear.
We were then transferred back to the pier at the end of day were Sun showed us around their new boat which is near completion and should be up and running before too long.
Overall this was a memorable day out, we were provided with endless fresh fruit and drinks throughtout the day and Sun was a great guy who made the day extra special with his wealth of local knowledge.
A few days later we were off to Hong Island. We were met by her again punctually at the hotel and today we would by taken out by her and her beatiful young son Noah.
We set off straight to Hong Island where we one of the 1st to the island and set off kayaking straight away. We kayaked round to the lagoon which was probably the most stunning place i have ever been. Elizabeths knowledge of the area was excellent and to listen to stories of the area was great. We were then given the option to go back the way we came or continue kayaking around the island. We went for the 2nd option which took around an hour. We loved every minute of this side by side with Elizabeth and Noah, talking about the local area. She really is a wonderful person to be around and again made us feal at ease with her laid back manner and great sense of humour.
Once back at the beach were left to spend an hour on the beach were we did a bit of snorkelling and then back onto the boat. It was around lunch time so we headed off on the boat back to the lagoon. There was only 1 other boat in the lagoon so it was the most peaceful place to sit back and again enjoy a fantastic lunch. We were served several thai dishes again which were all beatiful cooked and off great taste.
After lunch we were off to Paradise Island which is a very small island were we just sat looking out to the sea as it was so quiet and peacefull. I could have sat there for hours enjoying the views. But we decided to head off again and off to Red Island. Elizabeth knew we loved snorkelling and said this was a really good spot and she wasnt wrong. Once we had had enough of this we were off back to the pier for the transfer to the hotel.
Elizabeth and her beautiful young son Noah were fantastic all day long. Noah loved playing around with us with his lovely cheeky smile.
Overall these were 2 of the best days we have ever had. Lovely peaceful trips to some of the most stunning locations. Ok they do cost more than the local trips but to have the boat to yourself is one of the beauties of it and makes it that extra bit special.
I really couldn't thank Elizabeth, Sun and Noah for making these trips so special. We will be back next year and i wouldn't hesitate in booking some more trips through Andaman Camp and Cruise and hopefully then we'll get to go on the new boat which looks amazing.

This was our second visit to Ao Nang and our second trip with Andaman Camp and Cruise and we would have no hesitation in recommending them. This time we came back with our son and his family so there were three generations to contend with. Sun picked us up in perfect time and we were made welcome from the beginning of the trip. We had the most wonderful day in our own private longboat with Sun and his captain looking out for us and making sure the children (8 and 6) were happy and safe. They took us to some wonderful snorkelling spots and the grandchildren had their first experience of swimming from a boat in amongst the most beautiful fish and Sun went diving in Hong Lagoon to find them star fish which was a great hit. His knowledge of the area is what makes your trip so special.
Lunch on Hong Island was perfect and Sun's cooking was again top rate with special food cooked for the children that was not too spicy, (this had all been pre-arranged by Elizabeth over the email).
The highlight of the trip was swimming from the beach on Paradise Island in a tropical rain storm which was magical. We also met up with Elizabeth here and it was nice to meet her at last.
Sun started off from Paradise Island and with his expertise noted the bad weather coming in and we ran before the weather to shelter in a cove whilst the storm raged around which was very exciting for all of us.
He and his captain knew exactly when to cut and run and we reached back home safely after the most amazing day.
Thank you Elizabeth and Sun for a lovely tour and I am sure we will be back again.

My friends and I in a group of 3 had gone a snorkelling trip to bamboo island and Phi Phi organised by Andaman Camp And Cruise on 27 Oct.

Son had picked us punctually at 0800hrs, and we found him a friendly and cheerful person.

We had an enjoyable and unforgettable experience with Petra guiding us on the snorkelling activities. She is very sociable and knowledgeable person. She was very nice to dive to the bottom of the ocean to show us what Nemo ( clown fish) actually look like in real life and shared with us the other interesting marine life to see at the bottom of the ocean.

She gave us a different experience from the rest of the tours which we saw from a distance by taking us further away from the shore which was less crowded. It gave us a better opportunity to see the undisturbed marine life and a taste of the open waters of Andaman.

My friends and I had complimented that the lunch prepared was very nice indeed. Since it was a private tour, the boat was big and clean enough for us to sleep on , on our way back.

Thank you for the wonderful experience on our 1st snorkelling trip!
