We booked with Asian Dolphins thinking this highly-rated tour group would be the one's actually providing the tour. It turns out (after you paid) you are told via email that the tour will actually be provided by Anchor Andaman. When we finally arrived at the dock, come to find out the tour was actually provided by Ocean Mania. So you truly have no idea who is taking you out that day. But I feel since Asian Dolphins took my money they are the one's to review.
Very confusing pick up. We were in our hotel lobby promptly at 713am for a 715-730 pickup. We sat there and watched countless guides walk in looking confused as we looked back at them. As 745 rolled around and still no guide, we had the front desk call the guide and found out he left without us. Apparently its your job to solicit every guide that walks in to see if they are here for you. We departed at 753.
With that said, the tour itself was alright. The tour guide was outgoing and spoke English well. He acted like he was doing us a favor and bringing us to an additional island when in fact this island was advertised in the tour. They cram 30 or so guests into the speedboat and takes a while at each location to back the boat up and disembark. So the time it takes to do this plus the five or so locations you visit, you don't get much time at each location. It feels too rushed. Better to have 3 or so locations with time to swim and relax at each.
Plenty of water, juices, snack available on the boat. The lunch stop was fine.
