Beautiful day trip! We were lucky and there were only 6 participants on the boat and the beaches were not busy so we were almost alone there :) the guide was very open, friendly and helpful. The highlight of the trip was of course swimming with plankton! I can only recommend the trip.

Best tour we did during our trip to Thailand. Our guide was excellent, all the islands were not too crowded, and the bbq dinner was delicious

We enjoyed a beautiful tour with friendly guides in group of 10, which was perfect. Hong Island is awesome!

The staff was very kind and I participated alone, but it was a fun memory.
