I chose this tour due to it's reviews on Trip Advisor & we were not disappointed. This day with Captain Mark was truly fabulous. His wealth of knowledge & sense of humor, along with Sami his main man, truly made this day fascinating. Everyone was so much fun & not to mention the delicious lunch we were served, I have never eaten curry this delicious & tasty EVER. Thank you to everyone, this really was a special day & very memorable..

“Two excellent day Trips”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We have just returned from Phuket and after considerable research on tripadvisor I booked two tours (Phang Nga Bay and Phi Phi Island) before leaving Australia. Email correspondence was excellent and we received notification the night before each trip for exact pickup time the next day. We thoroughly enjoyed the Phang Nga Bay speedboat tour with Captain Mark and Sammy who were both very informative, professional and also fun. Our teenage kids also very much enjoyed the fun with the other crew on the boat who were splashing everyone with ice cold water when they got back in the boat. Everyone was well looked after and it was great meeting some of the other people on the boat from Australia and other parts of the world. There were varied things to do on this tour ie lunch and a walk around Ko Panyi floating village, which was one of the best meals we had while in Thailand, canoeing through caves and time for a few swimming stops.
We went on the Phi Phi Island tour later in the week and also thoroughly enjoyed this. This tour was more for swimming and snorkelling with the fish which the kids loved. Also a stop at Monkey island and many sites along the way. Once again Captain Mark was with us which my son was happy about even though he had his ear tweaked a few times. Once again the crew especially Jack were fun, helpful and informative. We would highly recommend Phuket Sail Tours and would definitely spend the extra money again to go with this Tour company. Thank you Captain Mark.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We had a little trouble booking the tour because our emails weren't going through, but once it was booked it was great. They picked us up right on time. The lunch provided was great and they provided tons of snacks such as chicken satay, donuts, and fresh fruit. The staff was incredibly courteous and professional.

“A Pleasant Trip”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

After a pretty rough diving trip earlier in the week the calm waters of Phang Nha Bay were a pleasant relief. I chose to participate in a Speedboat trip operated by Phuket Sail Tours as they seemed to be highly regarded amongst Trip Advisor reviewers. I was not diappointed - the trip itself was very professionally run, the guide was not only knowledgable but also was friendly and had a great sense of humour. The trip itself was great with a number of stops for us to enjoy the various islands, lagoons and other sights as well as the amazing lunch at the picturesque Koh Pan Yee village.

PST do not include a landing stop at James Bond Island as the island has become overrun with vendors preying on tourists, but we spent time offshore so that we could all take photos.

The canoeing and the walk into the lagoon to see the mudskippers were both good.

The only negatives I can think of are:
1) The trip included a briefing which explained where everything was on the boat .....except life jackets and flares.
2) The snorkelling stop at Paradise beach was disappointing in both the quality of the reef for snorkelling (although for people with limited snorkelling experiece it is probably fine), and the number of people on the beach (however this may have just been on this trip as there was a cliff diving competition being set up while i was there)
3) Supervsion of the group during the snorkelling was non existant. If one of the guests had experienced difficulties there was no way the PST crew would have been aware until too late.

“Excellent day trips”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Am so glad we went with Capt Mark. Both he and his team provided us with 2 exceptional day trips - to Phi Phi and Phang Nga Bay.
His staff were professional, knowledgable, courteous, and most of all FUN. They truly went out of theri way to make sure everyone was well looked after, even thsoe with sea sickness, and everyone had a good time.
They limit numbers so you get very attentive service. They rearranged itinerary to make sure you are in spots either before or after the main toursit companies arrive/leave so spots were tranquil and able to be enjoyed sans mass crowds. This is super important for Phi Phi tour. We always got in 1st then left as all teh others started arriving.

Heaps of food and drinks on board and at lunch - you wont go hungry. Nothing felt rushed or stressed and was exactly why you shoudl go with thsi company. Bonus os staff taking photos when jumping in lagoons and at the Hongs- got some awesome pictures!

Highly recommend - avoid other operators - go with the best!
