Which operator for Surin and Koh Phra Thong?

Which operator/company should I choose for Surin and Koh Phra Thong? Safety is priority.

(Surin) Kuraburi Greenview or Love Andaman

(Tachai-Koh Phra Thong combo) Similan Charter and Tour or others?

I plan to return to Tachai (full-day) with Fantastic Similan (I used them for Similan last year and enjoyed it). Ya, will do Tachai twice this trip, I love the island.

For Phra Thong see tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297914-i10908-k…

For Similans I would recommend Kuraburi Greenview. They are the longest established with excellent safety record.

Arandora, Will I be able to book the combo tour with Similan Charter and Tour from a booking agent in Khao Lak or directly with the boat company?

I usually use the booking agent across from Walker's Inn.

But the Khao Lak Magazine 'booking' doesn't offer the Koh Tachai / Koh Phrathong combo tour - only the Unseen Koh Phrathong tour.

What ever you do, don't pay more than 4300 baht for the combo tour - the price on Similan Charter & Tour's website.

It's the same operator/booking agent so if you contact them and specify which tour you want, they will quote you - unless CM knows how to do it better.

For the Unseen Koh Prathong tour, the price is 200 baht less if booked directly with Similan Charter & Tour rather than through the magazine.

Jade

As I previously recommended contact the operator through the previous link for the latest information, schedules and prices. Those shown previously refereed to Phuket clients. The Magazine is in the process of being updated to reflect this and another exciting "off the beaten track" option, Koh Gam, a National Park north of Khao Lak comprising an archipelago of four small islands hitherto virtually unknown to tourists and only visited by locals. Another chance to be a pioneer.

Others, watch this space for more information shortly.

It is not on Google - yet. It is very new that is why I am advising you to contact the operator if you want to be at the forefront of new destinations. If you prefer to stay with the established operators then Fantastic for the Similans or Kuraburi for the Surins.
