    We had a wonderful time with Seastar at Similan Islands thanks to our tour guides, Oak, Boss and Beatrice. They were friendly, helpful and very hospitable throughout the entire excursion. They brought us to the best photo spots at Sail Rock (which are slightly off the main trek) and were very kind to offer to help take plenty of photos for us. Plenty of snacks and drinks were provided before, during and after the trip. A breakfast buffet is provided upon checking in, biscuits and fruits are served around after each activity and another buffet was provided upon returning to the jetty. They seemed to have an unlimited supply of chilled bottled water and Pepsi on the boat as well. Lunch boxes were provided during lunch and honestly, were not as bad as some other reviews make them out to be. Our lunch boxes came with fried chicken, pineapple prawn, stir fried chicken, white rice and pasta. While not the best meal we had, they certainly weren't terrible. The excursion is available in English, Chinese and Thai, and participants will be grouped separately based on this during check in. Was a bit annoyed by the check in staff as they tried insisting on putting us in the Chinese group even though we don't understand Chinese and are not Chinese. Then, for whatever reason, they sorted us in the Thai group and finally in the English speaking group when their tour guide did roll call before departing. As for the booking process, they were able to confirm our booking within 24-hours. We initially tried to book with another operator via Klook but they were unresponsive and did not confirm our booking even within 3 days. Our morning pick up was slightly delayed but the tour operator was contactable. The return journey took almost 3-hours due to heavy traffic. A lot of time will be spent travelling on the shuttle van and boat (another 1+ hour each way) so this may not be for everyone. The marine life at Similan Islands was actually quite poor and most of the corals were bleached. If you are keen on snorkelling, this activity will be quite disappointing. The beaches are beautiful though very crowded. Still, we had a great time and would recommend Seastar to others.

    Among the few popular islands at Phuket, similan islands, in my opinion, has the nicest corals and variety of marine life as well as clearest blue water. Transport from Patong Hotel to Pier took us 2 hrs including picking up guests from nearby hotel and from Pier to Similan island took us another 80 min. All in all, 3.5 hrs to get to similan island. Due to the Long transport journey, i would say that the staff from (Mei mei - Chinese guide, and two other female guides) Sea Star has done a great job in trying their best to Ensure that we are comfortable, well fed, hydrated etc. We were picked by a comfortable van of max 12 pax from hotel to pier. There was light refreshment at the pier, we were given towels, snorkeling gears, sea sick pill included in the price quoted. Additional cost will be incurred when we buy beach socks (slippers and shoes are not allowed on boat, so will be walking barefoot for the entire day until they return us the footwear when we return to the mainland pier), rent go-pro for snorkeling, swim wear etc. There was a total of 4 stops. 1st was a snorkeling point without berthing at any island. 2nd stop - we berth at one of the island for lunch. There was one staff from sea star or was it a staff from the speed boat (he was not wear sea star uniform though) who carried a grandma on his back from the boat to the island so that the grandma’s shoe will not get wet (he was awesome!). Lunch was a little hectic where we collect our lunch box and find a spot ourselves to have lunch. Due to the crowd, we could not find a bench for our family and resort to putting a mat on the sand under a tree for shade to have our lunch. Would strongly suggest to bring along a mat for the trip!! 3rd stop was snorkeling point again. This snorkeling point was great! Better than the 1st one. The water was clear, there was special fishie like the unicorn fish and the tiger fish! The corals are all alive too! We all enjoyed the snorkeling experience. The 4th stop which is also the last stop is where the sailing rock is. The rocks are sharp and hot so would still recommend to buy the beach socks at the pier before starting this journey. All in all, the sea star staff are very friendly. They serve chilled water, Pepsi, fruits and biscuits throughout the journey. My Mother in law was really satisfied with their service. They even volunteered to take a lot of photos for her (aka a personal photography assistant) and for our family throughout the trip! Despite the long transport journey to similan islands (all of us knocked off on the speedboat back to main island and back to hotel), I would strongly recommend similan islands with a trustworthy and friendly group of sea star guide and staff where we can be rest assured that everything will turn out well.

    Overall a fantastic experience with the Seastar Andaman tour company! We stayed at Patong, so our pick up was the earliest in the morning between 6-630am. We then took another 1.5-2hours to complete the trip to Seastar’s pier inclusive of picking up other tour participants. The Seastar staffs are very professional, friendly, courteous, and attentive! Without them, this tour would have no doubt been a 3-4 stars only. Since we went on this activity during the Chinese New Year week, we were initially grouped in with China tourists. Some of them are really rough around the edges, which made the pier transfer rather uncomfortable. Sighing, clearing throat, and speaking loudly. One of them even ignored a Father and his kid trying to board into the back of the van by just blocking the entry with his leg as if to discourage them from sitting at the back. I found that rather dense of that person. However, we were split back into the English speaking group (mix of Saudi, Japanese, Korean, Scandinavian, and locals) at the pier where all the participants were considerate and friendly. Couple that with the great Seastar crew, huge shout outs to... - Captain Mike & crew (without them, no boat!) - Way (our lovely guide!) - Martin (attentive and courteous, thanks for retrieving my wife’s snorkeling gear that sunk into the corals!) - Jessie (always smiling and helping us and her crew!) ..they really made our trip 5 stars!

    Guys, This trip was really awesome and we enjoyed a lot. Thanks to OAK tour guide(Thanks to klook for helping me to select this package). Oak was very very good and very helpful in all the way througout the whole day.. We grouped up with russians.. Guide was helping us individually with a smile always. If we are going again to phuket, will definetly goes to this trip again. pros 1) Very well organized and implemented. 2) Not even bored a little bit. 3) Pick up on time as mentioned. 4) Morg before departing they provided snacks 5) During trip, they provided seasonal fruits, water, carbonated drink. 6) Lunch was fine. Not so good though but still its manageable ( I have to think that iam in trip so I have to adjust food) better to keep some snacks. 7) once we reached back to tier, before departing to home, they provided evening snacks also with lot of varities. Things can take 1) You have to leave your sandles/shoes before getting to boat. Dont worry, while returning back, you can collect from where you left( If require, get any shoes for beach) 2) They will provide good towel for each.. so towel is not really required. cons 1) I seriously dont find any. But if i want to tell. better to keep snacks with you

    AWESOME TOUR! very impressive experience. driver was early and prompt. everything was organised. everything needed was provided (e.g, towel, herbal balm, seasick pill, water) they provided simple breakfast, lunch and snacks/fruits/drinks during the trip. crew were caring and friendly. however, it can be better if the lunch area have more seats available. as we waited pretty long for a table and due to that we had lesser time at the beach. otherwise, reliable service and highly recommend!
