Phang Nga & Beyond

Tour Overview

Below is a sample itinerary and general overview of the places we visit on this trip.

Duration 7/8 hours on the water (approximately).

Like all of our trips, ‘the early bird catches the worm’… and most importantly avoids the crowds! We aim to leave the Royal Phuket Marina by 7am – 7:15am.

 

 

Stop 1

Koh Phanak

Koh Phanak is often our first stop for some intriguing cave exploration. Like Swiss cheese, Phanak is full of hidden caves, lagoons and hongs. We aim to select the very best location depending on the tide and weather on your day. So fire up your torches and step into a prehistoric world! Sightseeing is a strong suit of this tour since you will have the chance to see exclusive sights that not many people have seen in their lives.

Stop 2

Sea Canoeing

Koh Hong is a stunning location for a scenic canoe trip. It is simply the best way to see these geological wonders up close and personal. Let the Thai guide take you into hongs and caves only accessible by canoe. Cruise the waters on the canoes and marvel the real natural beauty that has formed over hundreds of years, creating an amazing spectacle that will remain forever in your memory.

Stop 3

Koh Phing Kan and Koh Tapu (James Bond Island)

Arguably the most famous spot in the bay, it's been a Mecca for Thai and Western tourists for over four decades, is the James Bond Island tour stop. You’ve come all this way and as Simba generally arrives well before the masses, we make a quick stop to see what all the fuss is about. This limestone marvel is perfect for you to take pictures.

Stop 4

Treasure Island/Secret Hong Swimming

Just a few minutes from James Bond island lays a fantastic hidden cave, only accessible by swimming through a narrow passage. Jump off the front of the boat, swim to the beach. It’s the perfect opportunity to cool off before we move across the bay.

Stop 5

Koh Yao Noi

As described, a truly unique location, still holding fast to a traditional existence in the face of it’s bustling brother, Phuket. Our tour takes a decidedly ‘terra firma’ turn, as we take a short trip across the south of the island to a stunning local Thai restaurant for a delicious Thai lunch.

Stop 6

Tropical Beach

The afternoon will take us to any number of beautiful beaches depending on tide and weather conditions. This is a chance to swim, relax, enjoy a light afternoon tea and sample the scenery before heading home.

SUNRISE PHANG NGA BAY & KOH PANYEE tour

Tour Overview

Below is a sample itinerary and general overview of the places we visit on this trip.

Duration 6.5 hours on the water (approximately)

Again like all our trips we aim to depart early, earlier than any other operator in Phuket. This keeps us a few steps ahead of the crowds, so it is a 6:30 departure from Royal Phuket Marina.  Enjoy the beautiful Sunrise over one of the most spectacular bays in the world.  The sunrise at certain times of the year is prior to the departure of this tour, and as such the sunrise experience cannot be guaranteed on all tours.

To give you the very best experience, our tour is very flexible. Factors such as the tide, avoiding the tourist swarm and giving you a day to remember, will all affect the order in which the program operates.

Stop 1

Koh Phanak

Our first stop is Koh Phanak for site seeing and cave exploring. Don the hard hats and grab a torch, looking out for the wild monkeys and bats while on our way into the caves. We plan to visit the caves before other tour groups for exclusive sightseeing of this magnificent natural wonderland. On our return, breakfast will be waiting for us on the boat.

Stop 2

Koh Phing Kan and Koh Tapu/James Bond Island

We do stop our speedboats on this iconic island - guests tell us they have come a long way, so why would they not want to go ashore? We do generally arrive early and are able to take excellent photos well before the masses arrive to this popular, famous island. It is also a geological wonder as you will discover. With its tall limestone karsts, this natural marvel is the perfect spot for you to take photos.

Stop 3

Koh Panyee

The village on stilts, originally a settlement by nomadic Malay fisherman 200 years ago. Here our Thai guides will wind you through the boardwalks of this floating village whilst the locals are just starting their day. You will experience the sights and smells of Thai breakfast cooking as the local’s days are just getting underway. It’s a very interesting time of day and we will get to visit the local school and floating football pitch. It is a great opportunity to get behind-the-scenes in this fascinating community. Get your chance to meet the warm and friendly people of the area.

Stop 4

Mangroves Waterways Cruise

Here we explore the amazing ecosystem and hidden canals of the mangroves. These long, narrow canals wind their way to a secret cave where we can take the boat through and explore some more. Along the way we will also stop at an ancient rock painting that dates back more than 1000 years.

Stop 5

Koh Hong

We are then off to Koh Hong to explore the hidden caves via canoe, time to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery while your Thai paddle man does the hard work. This is one of the most relaxing experiences you will have, enjoying the breathtaking surroundings, enclosed in a dome of pure nature.

Stop 6

Relaxing Beach Stop

Koh Lawa or Koh Nakka Noi will be our last stop for a swim from the beach. This stop is highly recommended since there is time to relax, have a drink with fresh cut fruit and take in the vista, before heading back to Phuket.

Stop 7

Lunch with a Million dollar view

Enjoy a great Thai lunch at the marina restaurant overlooking Phuket's most beautiful marina.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

The Phang Nga Bay & Koh Panyee at sunrise tour includes…
