“1 Island not 5...”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We booked a cruise to stop at 5 islands - we saw 3 (from far) and only stopped at 1... most of the time was spent on the boat. We were not at all impressed with this 'highly recommended' cruise. The James Bond Island cruise in Phuket is the standard we were expecting! Rather dissapointed.

“A great way to spend the day!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

My wife and I went on the tour following the reading of reviews. It was a great day with a varied passenger list.

The crew were happy, friendly and eager to make you drink! They sang on the way out to there little island and on the way back. There isn't much on their little island but you can snorkle (or have a look in the glass bottomed boat. After lunch you can have a swim or go hand fishing. The meal that the chef cooked on the way over was very fresh and plentiful. Not sure how she got the beef curry so tender.

The trip includes all drinks so very very good value. If you are a beer drinker remember to take a stubby holder as it can get hot out there. One word of warning - beware the local spirits that they serve. I am certain the barman got the measurments the wrong way round with my rum and coke!!!!!

The only disapointment was that my wife and I did not get a sulu as advertised as we were on our honeymoon.

As part of the service they pick you up from your hotel and return you after the trip. Certainly a day trip not to be missed

“Awesome Day out”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Had a fantastic day on the boat with these boys in early December. They could not do enough to help and filled us full of drink and good... Nothing was too much trouble for them and we hardly had to left a finger... The facilities are awesome and the island is a dream cone true... Highly recommend..

“A fun day out”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Being the only thing my partner and I were going to do outside of the resort, we were hoping the $199 FJD we payed would be worth it. I'm happy to report that it exceeded expectations! The price gets you a cruise out to your own private island, bypassing popular islands such as bounty, beach comber and south seas (Castaway island can also be seen at a distance) A continental breakfast, BBQ lunch on the island and afternoon tea. All drinks are covered by the cost and the staff were always happy to come over and offer you more drinks. The staff were great, not only was the service good but they pointed out islands to you and even sung for some entertainment on the way. On the island they provided you a bbq lunch which was delicious, and an array of activities to enjoy (Snorkelling, glass bottom boat tour, kayaking or just swimming in the beautiful clear water). You get around 3 hours to enjoy the private island which just caters for your group, and before you get back on the boat the staff and tourists play a big game of beach volleyball which was lots of fun. On the way back you still get unlimited drinks and an afternoon tea (If it's a special occasion like a honeymoon they bake a cake to celebrate as was the case when we were sailing). It's a very enjoyable day out, and it's great value for money. It's a must do!
