It was really a great trip, everyone was given a bracelet upon arrival, so it was always clear which boat they belonged on, followed by a small breakfast and an introduction to the day before going on the boat. We drove about 2 hours to surin, you should have taken something against nausea beforehand if you are sensitive. Arrived on Surin we visited the Moken Village in the morning and took a longtail boat ride before we had lunch. Then we went on to the 3 snorkeling stops, which were really really great. One of the employees showed us so many different underwater spots - a dream! We can really recommend this provider!

It is an unique place for who loves snorkelling, I have never seen so many varieties of corals e nemo fish. The company is great! They provided us with a new snorkelling mouthpiece, great food and an excellent atmosphere! The guide tours are over the moon!! Vina is very professional, friendly and with an amazing energy!! My family and I will definitely return with this company!

Far exceeded expectations, transfer on time, extremely well organised, 3 meals provided all excellent quality, Latte was the best guide, so enthusiastic and funny. Exceptional snorkelling and we saw Nemo! great value for money, 10/10 would recommend

The price seems a little high, but all the staff at Love Andaman are kind, and they try to provide a safe and secure tour. This was the third time I used Love Andaman's Boat, and I was very satisfied with everything.

despite cloudy weather a very nice experience with a great team!
