The many waves rocked the boat and made me throw up

Overall, we were very impressed. We travelled on a very rocky and windy day and were stressed based on previous reviews, but the journey was made more comfortable by the size of the boat. It was quick and timely and seats were comfortable. The stop at Koh Phagnan on the way was not an issue at all and didn’t interfere with the journey.

Advise this over the speedboat, the time difference is marginal and worth it for safety
