If you’re short on time but want to visit some of the most gorgeous places in the Andaman Sea, this tour takes you directly to the highlights from your Krabi city hotel. Start with morning pickup and transfer to Nopparat Thara pier, where you board the speedboat.
Zip over to Phra Nang beach, which is inaccessible to cars but only a 15-minute ride by speedboat. At the end of the beach, your guide shows you a small cave with a shrine. Legend says that an Indian princess was shipwrecked there in the 3rd century BC. Local fishermen make offerings to this spirit for good fortune and protection on the seas.
After you see the cave and its remarkable offerings, enjoy some free time for a swim or walk before reboarding your boat for the short trip to the next spot, Tub Island. Using provided snorkel gear, you can enjoy good snorkeling opportunities from the beach. At low tide, you can walk across a strip of white sand to the adjacent island.
Next up, hop on over to Chicken Island, which has a limestone rock profile that resembles its bird namesake. Your guide leads a snorkeling expedition at Chicken Island, with a colorful variety of fish and other marine creatures flitting about the warm waters.
Your final stop takes you to Koh Poda, which features views of a stunning rock island and long white beaches to explore. Snack on the light box lunch provided by your guide, then have some time to swim or sunbathe before returning to the mainland.
At the pier, your transfer vehicle meets you to return you to your hotel in the early afternoon.
