Marco and all the crew were amazing and with fabulous fresh cooked food what more could you ask. My husband loved the snorkelling and fishing and I loved the sun and cocktails- result! The sunset was amazing and Marcos cocktail at sunset nearly blew my brains out lol. I would definitely recommend this trip out to anyone.

Food was the best I had tested in whole Thailand 4. Unlimited cold soft drinks ;) 5. If you like fishing, it's great to take this... More

We had a really good time on the full day trip on Chantara. Was not too sure what to expect when we got on as quite a few nationalities on board. We found the whole experience very relaxing with swimming/snorkelling time on the beach at the fantastic 'Flip Flop' bar with the 'Chantara' special cocktail! The food was excellent with... More

The tour began with pickup from your hotel. When you get to the pier, you are greeted by the captiain who welcomes you and about 35 others onto a long-tail boat. The boat is beautiful- all shining teak, with pillows scattered around to lay on. You are handed a beach towel to use for the day, and you claim a... More

For those people who burn easily, if you don't get a spot in the shade right away you will get torched. I would say that half of the room on the boat is shady, but the other half is full sun. So get in early to claim a shady bit! We enjoyed the trip but the cook certainly needs to... More

We were a private group of 40 on the junk and all participants without an exception rated the day as 5 stars! The boat is really typical, beautiful and comfortable for 40.

This was one of the most incredible experiences to date! The most romantic, beautiful, breathtaking experience. So relaxing sitting on the deck of this beautiful, charming boat, and watching the sunset - highly recommended.
