A group of 4 of us went on this day tour booked with our hotel in Hua Hin. It took quite some time to collect everyone from the various hotels but there was no communication from the driver etc to say how long until we got on the boat.
finally after arriving on the boat we sat upstairs which we found was very hot....... the crew didnt come and greet us or give any safety instructions or anything we waiting patiently until they started the motors and just cruised for well over 1 hour - 1.5 hours to monkey island and when we arrived they ( the staff ) kind of grunted for us to get in the boat to go accross to monkey island.
after this we were there for what felt like 5 mins was probably 20 but felt a long way to go to spend that long there. Once sailing again we were given lunch which was a pathetic option of chicken and a couple of salads and fruit for dessert. nothing like we had been sold at the hotel as a seafood bbq! We all barely touched the food as it didnt look that great and werent willing to risk any sort of food poisioning as it was a very hot day.
then we stopped for fishing where there was 1 crew member who would help put the shrimp on the line but the others were all intent on fishing for their own gain. we fished for about half hour and then chugged back to dock for another 1 hour - 1.5 hours.
i thought this was a big waste of a day of my time in thailand and wouldnt recommend this tour, the staff defintiely need more training and would have been nice is one of them spoke a bit of english so as to point out what we were seeing as we cruised or interact with the guests.
