long tail boat

Is it safe to go to Freedom Beach from Patong in a long tail boat in October?

Sometimes it is.

When you see whitecaps, I wouldn't try it though.

There are good and bad longtail boat operators out there.

Good luck.

We went in a longtail boat to Freedom beach in July.

Perfectly safe.

Just use your own judgement.

As fiddledude said,don't go if you can see whitecaps.

Has anyone been on this trip and who would be a good operator to book with?

No need to book. Longtail boats are at the very southern end of Patong Beach. Just walk down to where you see the boats.
