Fantastic day that we would really recommend. The scenery is stunning and the day varied. We started out exploring the wider lake in a longtail boat. After mooring, we took at short hike on a path through Jungle. We had suitable footwear but some others arriving in flip flops were able to borrow something more appropriate. The hike was a little bit up and down plus quite slippy in parts due to heavy rain earlier - it was no problem for our 18 year old but a little bit more challenging for the over 50s! We saw monkeys and heard gibbons. We walked to pick up a bamboo raft to go to some caves which had lots of rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites. We returned by raft and a hike to the longtail boat and then went on to a floating restaurant for lunch. The lunch was a banquet to share and was tasty. Vegetarian options were provided. After lunch we were able to kayak on the lake or swim in the restaurant's pool. The location was stunning and tranquil.

Did it with my husband, the introduction was great. Dropping off at the pier was very chaotic, you didn't really know what was going to happen next. You saw a lot while diving, but in my opinion something very much for beginners. I had already done the Open Water Diver course and the dives were very challenging. Nevertheless, all in all we really liked it

Beautiful experience to try the first dive. The guys are really nice and nice. If you want to admire the beauty of the coral reef of koh tao we recommend it!

Tour guide was friendly, on time and very accommodating. The jet ski tour was very scenic and all in all we were very satisfied.

Excellent experience - company very kind and helpful and accommodating
