Hi Gordon, you have been recommended by another Trip advisor buddy for being wheelchair accessible and accomodating. My husband and I are planning to travel to Phuket in December and were wondering if we could do a boat excursion with you? I travel with a light manual wheelchair and I'm unable to walk. My husband often picks me up and carries me where it's not accessible with my chair. Could you let me know if you'd be able to take us on one of your boats?
