The normal Similan trips go to 4 locations, so I suspect this combined day will mean fewer locations in the Similans and one location on Tachai, plus a lot of travelling. I would check which locations are visited, but wouldn't be too keen on a combined day. Similans would be the choice for snorkelling, Tachai for scenery.

Discover Khao Lak is the new "brand" for Ruk Talay, a long established tour operator based on Cape Pakarang. Having specialised in tours to the Similan Islands and one of the first operators to Koh Tachai they now appear to be branching out into other sea and land based tours. Can't comment specifically on this combined trip as it doesn't appear on their website at http://www.discoverkhaolak.com/index.aspx

Although coming under the Koh Similans National Park Authority Tachai is not as stated by Malcolm R in the same immediate area as the main Similans Group which is the destination for normal Similan day tours. Given the time of year with the Wet Season just started with an extension for this area to remain open until 15th May, day tours to this area are prone to cancellation at short notice because of adverse sea conditions. So any extended period at sea due to transfers between the sites may spoil the enjoyment of either or both. Snorkelling or scenery or a compromise to try and achieve both? Personally I would not do this trip at this time of year.
