David and his family took a day trip from Khao Lak to the Surin Islands:
The overall impression is good and I and my family are overall very pleased with the trip and would rate it 4 of 5.
Friendly and attentive staff and good equipment.
The boat was ok, even if a bit tight with some 20+ passengers. This was especially true when we stopped for snorkling and had to change, get our gear on etc. It would have been great with some more space to do that. That would also have helped to make all of us talk and enjoy the trip even more.
The drinks and snacks on the boat were generously offered to us and I do not think anyone felt it was not enough. The food at the national park was below the average on this trip but we were positively surprised of the good ice cream!
The snorkling sites were good for less experienced people, but they were all very close to the national park offices and to each other and looked similar. Not knowing the area that may be the case whichever site you go to so I am not sure that snorkling or diving would be different elsewhere but given the reputation of Surin iskands I believe so.
Med Vänlig Hälsning,
