I was skeptical when looking at tours so my partner searched and found this one. It’s an early start so you miss the crowds and get the best weather as morning is generally clearer. We had a lovely prompt driver pick us up as our hotel is much closer to the marina then patong. Light breakfast snacks incl coffee and juice is set up once you get to the marina while you wait to leave. Group sizes are small with 16 max. Boat is nice and new and very clean (and has a clean nice smelling toilet on board!). The captain and deck hand are very sweet and relaxed. The day doesnt feel rushed and you cover a lot of ground. The cave canoeing and noodle beach swim near the start were our favourite parts. It’s worth paying more for this tour as other tours that we did see were very large groups and super touristy whereas our tour guide was easy going and friendly as well as knowledgeable. Perfect balance of professional and relaxing. Highly recommend.
