Phang Nga Bay Day Trip from Phuket by Speedboat

Phang Nga Bay Day Trip From Phuket by Speedboat

Your day trip from Phuket begins with hotel pickup by a friendly driver in the morning and a transfer to the exclusive Dolphin Seaway Pier. Here, take a short break to enjoy a live band before hopping into your speedboat to Phang Nga Bay.

Located in the Strait of Malacca, Phang Nga Bay is famous for its limestone karsts and stunning scenery. More than 100 islands and outcrops jut up from the emerald green sea, but perhaps none are as popular as the so-called James Bond Island, named for its starring role in the 1974 movie The Man with the Golden Gun.

Situated in Ao Phang Nga National Park, this famous landmark is actually a pair of islands called Ko Khao Phing Kan along with a 66-foot-tall (20-meter) islet called Ko Tapu. After your visit, you’ll feel like 007 as you speed away toward your next destination, Talu Island. Here, climb aboard a canoe and let your guide paddle you around the isle’s sea caves and hidden lagoons.

Hop out to explore the area’s stalactite caves, some more than 164 feet (50 meters) long. Equipped with a helmet and flashlight, follow your guide on foot into secret caverns with imaginative names like Ice Cream Cave.

Afterward, glide through the waterways of the mangrove swamps in the north of the bay to experience an untouched natural preserve. During your day trip, you can cool down when your guide stops for a swim break.

Enjoy a traditional Thai set lunch (vegetarian option available; includes soft drinks, coffee and tea) at Koh Panyee, a Muslim village built on stilts in the sea. Take the opportunity to witness daily life in this unique community as you walk around or shop after your meal.

Finish your day at a secluded beach on Naka Island, where you can relax, swim or work on your tan. You have more than an hour of free time here before departing Phang Nga Bay for Phuket, arriving back at the pier with drop-off at your hotel.

Pioneer and original Co are great! Dino is the best tour guide and made our day perfect! We saw the best of the best and had a fantastic day! The only let down was my canoe man coughed up phlegm and spat overboard while I was trying to enjoy the great caves! They need to be told not to do this and not to yell at passengers when they do not tip! This is why I did not tip him

Scenery is great, Hong Island canoe trip was the highlight. Lunch at the floating village was also nice. No need to take the flippers they offer as there is not much opportunity to snorkel. Sexy Moo Moo did a good as guide as well. A lot of travel in the speed boat but worth it.
