This Tour was worth every single Bath and it was easily one of the greatest days of my life. The crew is wonderful and everyone involved did their best to make this experience as wonderful and fun as possible. Everything was well organized and there was plenty of delicious food and drinks. The spots we visited were amazing.
This tour is perfect for you if you want to avoid mass tourism and just want to enjoy the sea and nature for a day.
It could have not been any better, for real!
Many thanks to the whole crew!!!

Definitely book, you won’t be disappointed! A most enjoyable day. A note to those with claustrophobia- to get into some caves you need to lie down flat in the inflatable canoes, as some of the cave openings are quite small. The cave ceiling will be directly over your face for 30 seconds or so. Only one cave is very tight, and of course you don’t have to go, but do try! The entire time you have a guide that paddles and controls the boat. They know what they are doing, very friendly and a lot of fun! Once inside the caves you’ll get to marvel at beautiful serene lagoons and all the nature that lives within it. You might get to see monkeys, snakes and funny frog-fish creatures! The trip is well organized, food is delicious and making the offers is a lot of fun. Once it’s dark you get to go to the Bat Cave, yes it’s full of bats! So cool. You enter the lagoon, light your offering candles and float it in the water for a bit, it’s quite a beautiful experience. On your way back out through the dark cave, your guide will turn off his light and in the pitch dark, wave your hand around in the water to see all the bioluminescence. It’s just magical! Everyone works hard to ensure you have a wonderful time. I would highly recommend!

My wife and I had a lovely time on the night tour. Our guide, Sun, was very friendly and informative. He took extra time with us on the canoe to show us the various lagoons and caves. Going through the caves can be a tight squeeze depending on the tide, but the guides are very skilled and patient. Going back at night and seeing the bioluminescent fish was a once in a lifetime experience. The islands are beautiful and the entire tour is designed very well. There is a big focus on eco tourism as well.

This was an amazing experience. The peacefulness of floating in the kayaks and experiencing this beautiful space. was one of the top highlights of our trip. The guides were so fun and informative. Making the Loy Krathong and seeing the planktin in the evening is something you do not want to miss. Simply beautiful. Words do not do the experience justice.

This is an all day tour but one you Do Not want to miss. This is a late post from (July 2019) But I had to share. BE SURE TO BOOK THIS TRIP!

Our guide Nico, aka Thai Morgan Freeman (see photos), made the experience very special, but the care taken by all the guides was amazing. The cave experience was a highlight of our time in Phuket. Do yourself a favour and do this tour.
Thanks to all the crew, and a special mention goes out to all that were involved in the freshly cooked food. It was prepared while we were snorkelling and was amazing.
The piece we made was an offering to the sea gods to apologise for people peeing in the water. It was made using banana trunk, banana leaves, marigold flowers and a Thai orchid made into a bird. With incense sticks and candles we paddled into a cave, lit the candles and made a wish.

Had been told by word of mouth to go do this. Glad we did. Friendly staff. Even met John Gray. I took a hat but didn't really need one. Boat is under cover and plenty of shade around the caves.

We booked many daytrips for our 2 weeks honeymoon in Thailand. All trips had something special about them, but this one was the star, the special one.
After the transfer to the pier we started the journey with a boat. We'd been a group of 30 pax add or take a couple and we had started the tour with a vegetarian lunch (recommended considering the canoeing). After the lunch and an hour of cruising we have arrived to the first cave. We had been all allocated a personal guide who was paddling our canoe and showing us through the caves. Our guide was Cham and he was simply amazing. He always found a way to show us something unusual or to get the best position with the canoe for a great shot.
We were lucky enough to see monkeys in one of the lagoons and one actually jumped on our canoe and travelled a while with us.
We returned to the boat and had some fruits and banana muffins. After this we had some more canoeing and visited lagoons. For supper we had amazing thai food, which was delicious. The staff was attentive and they always had vegetarian and vegan food cooked.
With our guide we decorated the already prepared katong. After the sunset we entered the last cave and lighted the katong. When the candles burned out the cave turned dark. When moving the water with the paddle or your hand little lights/sparkles appeared, but it is not possible to catch it on camera.
We have then returned to the boat. From the roof of the boat, laying on our back we were able to enjoy the sky full of stars. We arrived back to the pier around 10pm.
Thank you for the amazing experience!

This trip is 100% recommended. The staff were amazing and the whole day ran smoothly. The canoeing was great fun and the sights were breathtaking. The added element of making a traditional Thai flower to float into the water tipped the whole day off. The food was plentiful and tasty and free soft drinks were available all day. It was the best boat trip We have ever been on and would recommend it to anyone!
