    First of all- the agent we booked through “Igor” was incredible. He met our every need and got back to us usually within a few hours, despite being in a time zone hours ahead. At one point we had an unfortunate event that was going to keep us from going the original dates, and he rescheduled with no issues.

    Alex, the boat captain of the “Full Steam” was a very good captain. His cook, Pung, was the star of the show. Not only did she provide incredible Thai meals, but she was hilarious, entertaining, and a joy to be around. Alex was also able to get us a massage lady to come on board with us- Jen. She was also amazing and provided the best massages I’ve ever had!

    A couple of things I think potential charters should understand about this boat & crew- this is an older boat with one bathroom. While most of the crew uses the bathroom outside of the boat, it is still very close to quarters. Even further to that point- the shower is located outside, and not in the bathroom. There is very little privacy and no hot water.

    Your bedroom does not have a door on it. This adds to the ‘no privacy’.

    While Alex is very good at captaining the ship, we found him a little lacking in local knowledge of the islands. Please note that you will need to be VERY specific with him about what you want. This is true of every charter to ensure good service. We were asked at the beginning of the charter if we wanted “caves” or “clear water”. Of course we chose clear water, not understanding that not seeing the “caves” would mean none of the limestone cliffs of Thailand. In the end it all worked out perfectly as we saw both the clear water and the limestone cliffs, but we did have to sail 8 hours one day. No big deal.

    Also, to potential sailors- don’t go in May! I read everywhere that it’s mostly sunny in May with light passing showers- not true anymore. It rained the majority of the trip. We expected the heat, but not so much rain. This, of course, was not anyone’s fault. Just a warning to those thinking about coming in the “transition” time to the rainy season.

    All in all- we would go again. Igor and the crew we had were wonderful and a great way to see the islands without being on a tourism boat with 100 other people.

    We went for a diving day with my friend and had 2 dives with Ludoviq. He was very attentive and careful, explained everything to us and showing us the best underwater and on the island around. As a bonus he also sent us a nice video of the dive and amazing pictures!

    We hired this boat twice simply because the first trip was so unbelievable. The Captain and his mate were truely great. Very friendly and just kept on bringing out food for us to eat. Lunch was abslutley delicious. So we just had to do it all again but this time did a sunset trip. Worth every penny and would do it again in a heart beat!

    We really enjoyed the trip. The driver is punctual. The boat was clean and spacious for a group of 6. The boat captain and crew are accommodating. They really tried their best to find great fishing spots. We catched a lot of fish. Will definitely recommend this trip.
