This one day trip would have been much more enjoyable, but the company (workers) ruined this for us. I understand that paying only 25 MYR means budget trip, but it definitly doesn't mean that they should be so rude with tourists. We all felt like we were treated like animals. Our boat was way too crowded and A and B Marine workers yelled at us. They didn't ask nicely to move out from the boat, they just yelled. One Japanese family was treated in extra rude way. Two "skippers" also smoked constantly on the boat even though there were many children around.
About the islands. Make sure you take something for lunch, drinking water and some money. They wil give you an hour to discover pregnant maiden lake, in my opinion 1 hour is too much so you could use this time to have a lunch. You will need some money for life jackets or watercycling.
Most of the places we visited were crowded and also trashed. A lot of boats were leaking and water was not clean at all. So all those white beaches were beautiful only from far distance. Some locals said that tourists are the ones who are throwing garbage to those islands but what I saw was that "skippers" are the reason why beaches are so trashed.
In conclusion I would recommend island hopping but just keep in mind that it's not very comfy trip.
