We've spent two excellent days as a family of two adults and three children aboard of River Rovers boat and in a very peasant company of Gordon Williams and his crew.
It is clearly an alternative way to see Phulket! Comfortable, well-equipped boat with the owner who clearly enjoyed the trip as much as we did. As an alternative to the numerous Phuket speed boats this one goes slow, but just enough to see things at the right angle. And it is also made to come close to beaches, and making its way in a shallow rivers, where the other boats cannot..
Our trips were full of excellent food ( I would even say it was a kind of floating restaurant), we had quite some beers and excellent wines ( we ordered wine for our second trip). Children were full of activities, doing kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, jumping out of the boat..
I would also say lots of things are driven by the outstanding personality of Gordon himself, who is treating his customers very much alike his personal guests. He enjoys talking to people, he likes good food, he respect locals, he enjoys life. He doesn't look at his watch al all- both trips we finished much later than scheduled, and saw much more than expected...
We would also highly recommend the other trip around the bay area that we found even more interesting than Monkey Jungle.. We could see one of the local temples, accessible only by vessel, some very nice islands and beaches..
Thank you Gordon for your hospitality! Highly recommended and exceptional experience. A real value for money.
