We keep the number of guests on each tour low, we do not over crowd our boats. Activities include snorkeling, canoeing, caving, swimming, beach picnics, relaxing and more. All year round. We have sought the best places and know how to avoid the crowds. Our tours can only be booked directly with us, we do not work through any agents. We hope to see you aboard!

We did two tours with the crew during our stay - Phi Phi Island and Phang Nga Bay. Sompong is a brilliant host/guide and Captain Mark adds a nice touch with his expert knowledge of all the best spots. These guys are brilliant and really make the trip for you. They make sure everyone has a great time and are brilliant with kids. We were really well fed all day (lunch was amazing!) and there was an endless supply of cold drinks. We saw some other tours with the same size boat and twice as many people. I would pay the extra not to be crammed on to a boat with 40 people. We had about 16 on ours. Both tours are worth doing if you have the time. If you have to choose Phang Nga includes kayaking through the caves whereas the Phi Phi tour includes more snorkeling. Also depends which sites you are most interested in visiting.

If you want to get away from the 'tourist throngs' while on Phuket I highly recommend the sailing boat trip with Captain Mark [& just 8 people] to Phang Nga Bay. It was like going out with a mate on his boat for the day. His knowledge of where to take us [inside the Hongs a special experience] was invaluable & we felt we had had a unique, genuine local experience that could not be equalled. The best thing we did while on Phuket by far!!!!

just wanted to add to all the great feedback about the Phi Phi island tour and going with this company:
- favorite tour (even over the James Bond trip), Phi Phi Island and specifically Maya Bay (The Beach) are not to be missed!
- small group (no more than 20 ppl), make for a comfortable boat ride and a more personalized trip/day
- lunch venue was great! we were the only tour group at this little beach front restaurant and that says something! food was good, many options and as opposed to another tour company we also went thru that same week (due to this one being booked), where we were taken to a large restaurant, buffet style, bland and not good, where many tour companies stop and they expect you to eat then "shop" in their conveniently located store that is extremely overpriced!
- the main point I want to make though is this trip, with our two young children, would NOT have been possible if it wasn't for the helpful crew and guides on board! From lifting our toddlers in and out of the boat each time, to occasionally watching and entertaining them while we snorkeled, or created special floaters for them to hold on to, AND they had infant/toddler size life jackets which were not available with the other company...all of these little things were actually a BIG part of us enjoying our day as a family and making this trip to the islands possible!
So BOOK NOW, as they book up fast and go with this company!

After much deliberation we decided on the sail boat and it was breathtaking. We were blessed the smoothest, glass like crossing and beautiful blue skies throughout which probably didn't please Mark as he couldn't put the sails up!! Everything about the day was fantastic from the start to finish and I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

We took the speedboat tour of Nga Bay earlier this month and can affirm the positive reviews are true. No overcrowding, terrific captain and crew, best tour of the bay! We really appreciated the way they adjusted the agenda to avoid the crowds and still hit all the highlights. They did a terrific job of keeping us comfortable, well fed and hydrated. This was the best day in Phuket.
