How can we help you?

At Simba we create a custom pickup schedule for each day to minimise your time en-route to the marina.
Our staff prepare the hotel transfer routes the day before your tour. You can expect to receive an email detailing the actual pickup time early in the afternoon, the day before your tour.
Hotel Transfer Charges (Not applicable for Private Charters)
If your pickup location is outside the complimentary mini-van route of Kata, Karon and Patong, Kamala, Surin, Bangtao we need to hire a private car to make the return transfer. Please check this link to view a map of the free transfer zone.
The cost for car is 500 THB baht each way (per car – not per person) and we will organise this for you.
This can be paid on the day of your trip when you pay the balance of the tour costs. We will advise an exact pick-up time the day before the tour.
We take a maximum of 16 adults per tour, and our average number per tour is 14.
Although the Simba boats are licensed for up to 32 people, it has always been our aim to take few people on the boat to make your trip more personal, comfortable, enjoyable and safer.
There are no additional costs on a Simba tour. However we do stop at some places where there will be a bar, so if you would like an alcoholic beverage you may purchase one yourself. Tipping is customary but not obligatory around Phuket, so if you would like to show your gratitude for our Thai staff there will be a tip box at the end of the day.
You will also notice at time of payment that we apply a 1.5% Booking Processing Fee. This recovers only a small portion of our fees for offering our easy to use and convenient booking system and payment methods.
