Overall rating

We did both similan and surin islands trip and if you had to pick one I would 100% recommend surin islands. The entire day was incredible, we loved the moken village, it’s a short stop only 30-40 minutes which is plenty time to walk around and take plenty pictures as it is absolutely stunning. The beach spot for lunch was lovely, we didn’t fancy the lunch so we brought snacks and bought an ice cream on the beach, as everyone else was having lunch we had about 40 minutes alone on the beach which is pristine turquoise blue and incredible. The three snorkel spots were perfect with gorgeous coral colours and plenty of nemos! I have snorkelled in Australia, the Caribbean islands, Fiji and more and this was probably one of the best. The guides are brilliant, plenty of water juice and snacks, the speedboat is a little bumpy and whilst deafeningly loud at the back with the engines it’s better for sickness, they also give out sea sick pills! overall the day was fabulous.

It was a long day as the journey takes about 3h+ each way. However the trip was well organised and comfortable. The pickup/ drop-off were good, and the boat was comfortable and well equipped. The islands were fantastic and we had 3 stops for snorkeling. The waters are clear and clean and there were lots of corals. A great day!

Fantastic trip to Surin Islands. Very well run and organised company. Great value for money. Excellent staff and tour guides.

A completely successful day. Fabio was again a great guide
