1 dive only. Badly maintained gear. Expensive. Poor value. Nevertheless a scenic wreck dive. We went with Nikorn Marine to Raya Island for diving at a cost of 2,900 THB per person. We were with the rest of the day trip for 45 minutes of average to poor snorkelling (by Southeast Asian standards) before lunch. After lunch (which was average)... More

My boyfriend and I took the Coral Island trip from Phuket. It seemed like everyone for all their boat tours for the day met at the same place at the same time. We were given different color wrist bands so you knew what group you were in and also a life jacket to carry around for the day. The whole... More

Boarded a high speed boat to Racha Island. Herded like cattle during the boarding process. Couldn't see anything on the trip over (boat had high sides >> no visibility). Beach is beautiful but overcrowded. No shade, but can rent an umbrella (pricey). Lunch was OK but very little direction provided by guide as to eating arrangements. Snorkeling area taken to... More

Just came back from the Racha Island & Coral Island day trip which I book through my hotel for 1500 Baht (flyer says 2300 Baht, but I doubt anybody 're Lily pays that). The pick-up was on time, and we arrived well in Chalong where we checked in, got the wristband for the trip booked (yellow in my case) and... More

The lady at the snorkel gear on coral island on Sat Feb 25 was extremely rude and unprofessional. I'm a pretty easy going non confrontational person but this lady should not be working there

We booked this trip from a tour place nearby our hotel as all the other fishing tours on TripAdvisor were fully booked - and I can see why! These guys were unprofessional from the start. To get to our boat, we had to climb quite dangerously across another five boats. This was fine for us, but for the older and... More

Complete chaos. Very rude staff. Bathroom was completely useless being very dirty, missing essentials and not even having light. Overall atmosphere during the boat trip was not even close to nice. The included lunch and drinks were only one bottle of water per person, food was terrible, fruit - did not see them. Coffee either. Sea walking trip - 10... More

We booked this excursion (Racha Island) through our hotel because of the wonderful looking brochure. Let me just say, don't judge a book by it's cover (even if the cover is intriguing). Upon pickup from our hotel, we were shuttled to the Chalong Pier. This marina was absolutely packed. When we got out of the shuttle, there was a hoard... More

Every aspect of this day trip was terrible. Crowded and disorganised, there are literally no redeeming features. Most of your time is spent being herded somewhere or being told you can't do something, all the time being jostled by tourists with no concept of consideration or personal space. Their sea walk consists mainly of standing in a queue underwater, fittingly... More

I write this in English to reach for people and to warn you. I'm sorry but it is just Google translation: The worst experience in Thailand that we had! We were sold a day trip from 9am to 3:15pm. Snorkeling was included, BUT on the beach without riffs or corals. The corals were all white and dead. There were isolated... More
