Not only did no one in the crew ask people not to step on or touch the coral, members of the crew stood on the coral. That is insane. When the coral is gone where do they think their jobs will go.

Other than that it was a great day. The crew was friendly. The entertainment by the crtew was enjoyable. It would have been a perfect day except for the above. The food was very good. I am a vegetarian and there was plenty for me to eat. The fish and most of the other wildlife was super. The coral was not super. It was very broken up. When the coral is gone, the fish will be gone also.

We got to sail!! Don't pass up the chance to play figurehead.

The staff were fantastic, the little island they took us to for snorkeling and lunch was equally beautiful. Unfortunately, there wasn't much wind that day so they didn't power the ship with sails and instead used the inboard motors.

We cannot rave enough about this day tour. We had found other tours online but the tour desk at our resort recommended this one very highly so we gave it a go.

An air-conditioned coach picked us up from our resort just before 8am and took us the one hour trip to the marina. As soon as we were on the boat they were offering us champagne and orange juice. The breakfast spread provided included plenty of pastries and fruits and the staff were very helpful.

Once we were on the island we participated in a Kava Ceremony, we then had the options of snorkeling, hand line fishing, playing volley ball or just relaxing.

The lunch buffet was better that what the resort had most days, and the drinks kept coming, spirits included!

The staff were so friendly, helpful, funny, entertaining and we wanted to go back again but we just did not have the time. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

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.
