Chin, our guide was awesome, he was so knowledgable about the area and his timing was impeccable about which caves we went to to miss the other big tour boats. He even took us to am extra cave so we would miss the crowds! We only had 8 in our group but we never felt that we were getting less than if we'd had more, the crew was fun and funny and super attentive, The on board lunch was delicious and there was lots of choices. and the swimming trip on the mini island excursion was so much fun. The beach was so clean and we got to spend a little extra time there. We will be back for future trips.
One of the most amazing experiences of my life! Completely made my Phuket trip.
The driver showed up at our hotel and saw that we were not dressed properly and very patiently waited as we ran back to get into swimsuits and grab towels. Depending on the tides, you may have a bit of free swim time on a nice island. The caves and islands are beautiful and very interesting. The guides are professional, accommodating and fun.

Kayaking the caves of Phang Nga Bay was fantastic. We saw monkeys and bats and had to squeeze into some caves. This was a fantastic tour.
This tour is a must if you are traveling to Phuket! This is a full day of kayaking (a guide kayaks for you) and you enjoy the many caves and lagoons throughout Phang Nga Bay. You also get great views of James Bond Island so I wouldn't bother doing a separate tour to see it. Our guide was hilarious and stayed behind in the lagoons so we could see monkeys, toucans and other birds/wildlife. A monkey even jumped on our kayak which was shocking/amazing!
The lunch on the boat was great and Phang Nga Bay has clam waters so you won't get sea sick like traveling on a speed boat to the Similan Islands. We ended the day by stopping at a beach and taking a swim for a good amount of time and then headed home.
This trip is a great way to see Phang Nga Bay and the breathtaking scenery it has to offer. It's truly a memory my husband and I will never forget!
We had read the reviews for this trip before booking and it was exactly as we had hoped. The guys on the boat were great fun and our two guides who took us around in the canoes went out of their way to show us all the sights as we toured around. Our two kids are 7 and 10 and were enthralled by the bats suspended in the caves, 'walking fish' and to see monkeys perched in the trees in the lagoons we visited. We had great fun swimming from the boat at the end of the day and I would thoroughly recommend this as a day trip.
This tour is a must, although clients should understand that this is not an energetic day. You are taken from your hotel to the dock, and then onto your cruise boat. Our guide on the cruise boat was funny and explained everything clearly to us.On reaching your destination you are assisted onto a canoe that has a guide who does all the paddling. So normally 3 to a canoe. We stopped for a swim stop at one of the islands then on to James Bond island. The islands, loads of them, are very photogenic externally and the caves, dark and narrow in places, bring you into the interior of the islands. This all adds to the fun. A good lunch is provided with drinks. All in all a great day out.
The photos and description of this tour really do not do it justice. It's so much more amazing than I could have imagined. It was raining when the van picked us up and was still raining when we go onto the boat so it didn't look like it was going to be a good day. We stopped at an Island first and even though it was drizzling, many people went onto the beach and made the most of it. I sat on the side in my rain pancho and admired them. Then the rain stopped, the sun came out and the areas that we explored were beyond amazing. To canoe into an opening in a rock and a few seconds later, come into this virtually untouched lagoon was breathtaking. Also the boat and canoe staff were great. They supply water and soda and lunch and are so accommodating. They are very organized as after the tour, they know exactly who goes into which van to be brought back to which hotel. Also, someone on the dock takes a photo of you and upon your return, the photo is placed into a frame that has been hand decorated with shells. I bought it as it was a cute souvenir.
Awesome tour. It was more touristy than adventure-like because the guides operate the rafts instead of the participants, but the caves were definitely worth seeing. While you go into the caves via small raft, you move to the different islands on a large, comfortable boat, and I almost enjoyed this as much as the canoeing because the surrounding scenery was awesome. Great opportunity for photos.
Tour guides were very funny, charismatic. The food was amazing as well. Very good tour. Had an enjoyable day.
What an amazing day!! Definitely a highlight of our time in Phuket. Our guide was very fun and informative, and the scenery was gorgeous. Do this tour!! You won't regret it.
