Having previously done a similar trip on a slow boat we found this boat far superior and was great to have an Australian (Captain Mark) as the guide. He was very knowledgeable about the whole area. It was easy to get off the boat wherever we stopped. Plenty of time for visiting islands, swimming, snorkelling etc. Food was good and plenty of it. A good time was had by all even though it started to rain mid trip. Would definitely recommend this to any visitor to Phuket.

We booked with Sail Tours (last minute) onto their speedboat trip around Phanga Nga Bay, visiting James Bond Island, a couple of Hongs, and the Gypsy sea village. The trip was a little more expensive than others but it proved worthwhile. Despite a slow start because of a problem with one of the group's transport to the pier, everything ran very smoothly. And, although the the weather was overcast and a little rainy, it didn't ruin a really enjoyable day. This was due in no small part to the guides and crew with us - who were very friendly, helpful, good fun and knowledgable about the bay. But also the group was relatively small, with only 20 of us in the boat. We were a mix of Aussies, Kiwi's, a French couple with kids, an american and brits - so it was easy to chat and get to know one another a bit. So all in all a great day out and highly recommended.

After having researched on trip advisor about the tour companies to visit Phang Nga bay, we decided to do one trip with PST, so we booked Phang Nga for the 9th July.
Everything was well organised right from booking online in Australia, hotel pick-up, warm welcome at the PST office and on-time departure. Highlight of my time in Phuket, as PST team covered all aspects of the trip - transport, food, safety, equipment. I liked their attention to detail from always having drinks on board for us to cutting fresh fruit for a afternoon snack. They thought of everything and made you feel safe where they took you. Nice little details like laying out sand mats and offering to take pictures to make your trip enjoyable really make the difference. I would say, you wont be disappointed with this group.
The scenery is outstanding and should not be missed on a trip to Phuket. We did all the normal things, snorkelling, canoeing and sightseeing.
The day we went there was less than 20 people which made for a relaxing time on the boat. Plenty of food and drinks on board.
Lunch at Koh Panyee was outstanding and plentiful.
The whole crew made us feel welcome and safe.
I would highly recommend Phuket Sail Tours and Phang Nga Bay.

we took the phang nga bay tour. excellent all-around. the company was prompt in answering emails regarding our reservation. the tour itself was fantastic. our guide was awesome as was his english. captain mark was on our tour also; both were entertaining and knowledgeable. i loved that they didn't stop at the tourist spots just because, like the James Bond rock. We saw it from the boat and that was enough. We also stayed at all the various spots for quite a while; we were never rushed. Refreshments were aplenty. Overall, the crew and tour was awesome. Would do again and again. My friend and I wanted to do the Phi Phi tour the next day but were unsure about the weather conditions. I really appreciate that this company doesn't go out if the weather is questionable, unlike other tour groups.

Due to bad weather our original trip to Phi Phi was cancelled, so we were put on the Phang Nga tour instead. Turned out to be one of my favourite parts of the holiday; beautiful stops, and the speed boat meant we weren't crowded in like some of the larger groups. On the list to do again on our next trip.
