All in all a good day trip. The Similan islands are beautiful and the snorkeling is fun. The trip was organised by WOW Andaman via Viator. We where picked up from our hotel by one of their employees, a very personal touch. The dock is super busy but well organised. The speed boat ride is fun, takes about an hour and the first stop was at one of the islands beaches. The place was beautiful, we enjoyed a swim in the turquoise waters, however, not long after we arrived half the world invaded the beach and it became super busy, takes away from the experience. The whole day was quite busy, the tours are very popular. We then had two snorkeling stops, they are fun and you get to see lovely corals and swim with all kinds of fish. Final stop was for lunch and a final dip in the fantastic water before making our way home. We seemed to be on a predominantly Chinese speaking trip which meant we missed out on a little bit of detail but got to do and see the main things.
