I was on a one day boat tour ("Love Andaman") from Thaimuang which took us to four different islands among the nine Similan Islands. The speedboat ride was across lovely seas, with great views of islands along the way, a bit over an hour. I was there during Easter Holiday and the weather was perfect. Hot and sunny, and very comfortable. At two of the islands we went to, we were able to walk around and explore the thick jungle forests, the amazingly beautiful beach and rocks. I have never seen such clear water in my life! Amazing to swim in! At one of the islands there was a cliff you could climb and get a spectacular view of the beach and the sea. So beautiful! There were also scores of fruit bats sleeping in the trees! Another thing I had never seen anywhere before. At the other two islands the boat stopped near the rocky coast and we were able to jump off the boat and swim. Whether swimming or just relaxing on the boat there were great views of the beautiful rocky coast.
Yes, these places were a bit crowded with tourists - there were several boat tour groups there all at once of course. This didn't bother me in the slightest. It was actually fun to be in such an amazingly beautiful place with a lot of people from all over the world. Everyone was happy, having fun, enjoying the sun and being friendly. It added to the happy and beautiful feeling of the place and the whole day. And nowhere was it so crowded that it affected anything I wanted to do - hiking, climbing, swimming, relaxing...
The tour boat people ("Love Andaman") were really lovely, friendly, helpful and fun. One of the tour guides even hiked up to the cliff with me and a few others. They provided lunch which was not good food at all, but quite frankly, that's not what I was there for. And I didn't leave hungry. It was also possible to buy snacks and juices and iced coffee (really good!) on the island. The boat tour also provided non-stop cold water bottles, as many as you needed.
I would definitely repeat this tour if I have the chance again! It was a fantastic day in Thailand!
