Snorkeling was amazing but for the 2...
Megan B
, Feb 2018
Snorkeling was amazing but for the 2 hours snorkeling we had to endure a 7 hour round trip 2 hours mini bus, 90 min boat which was grueling to say the least. Beaches were crowded but no where near as crowded as Phi Phi. Lunch was good although sitting on the dirt to eat wasn't fun. But all in all a good yet looong tour. Crystal clear water and great snorkeling made up for the rest.
