We had a fun time at the cruise. We were looking forward to visiting with the monkeys (per their picture) but were only allowed to see from the boat as the monkeys bite. We did do some snorkeling a bit further away from there. We got to swim in the lagoon and do some paddle boating. We had to cut it short due to the rain. Make sure to take bug spray as we got stung pretty bad at Maya Bay. Maya Bay is where you get off the boat, walk through a trial to get to the beach. Make sure you let them know ahead of time if you have any food restrictions. For vegetarians, make sure to mention no egg (this is the case in all of Thailand). The options are a bad sandwich or fried rice, with fruit. The booze is free flowing. Also played some drinking games at the end while we waited for the sun to set. Our guide did have a go pro and took a lot of pictures for us, including underwater. This is included in the cost but it takes them a couple of days to get it to you. A tip is expected at the end.

Great family experience. 100% worth the extra cost for a private tour with you own boat if you go with kids. We were comfortable the whole time. We got to chose our own itinerary with the help of our tour guide. Our tour guide, Patrick, was very helpful with information and tends to our needs. The food and drinks provided were amazing. The boat captain and his deck hand were top notch. They go above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Thank you Patrick and the Simba Sea Tours crew.
