You'll learn about the diverse ecosystems that surround Ao Thalane, navigate narrow waterways with an expert guide, and uncover hidden beauty in remote Thailand. Opt for a half-day adventure with morning or afternoon departures, or a full-day tour that includes lunch on the beach and time to swim. Prepare for a stunning outdoor experience that puts travelers in touch with nature.
  • Sea kayaking at Ao Thalane from Krabi
  • Enjoy an up-close encounter with nature
  • Learn about local wildlife
  • Lunch included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Small-group tour with six participants per guide
After hotel pickup in Ao Nang, Ao Nam Mao, and Krabi Town, you'll depart by kayak from the pier in Ao Thalane. Follow a kayaking guide through the stunning landscapes of the Ao Thalane mangrove forest and navigate narrow waterways and thick foliage in a sea kayak.

Paddle with a maximum of six people to one guide on a small-group day trip designed for novices or those who wish to experience the bay without the crowds. Learn about the area's diverse ecosystems as you get an up-close encounter with nature and kayak through canyons, caves, and lagoons. You'll see indigenous birds and monkeys.

Stop At:  
Seakayak Krabi
Get picked up by our friendly driver and take a 20 minute scenic drive through rural villages to the incredible, karst-dotted Thalane Bay, situated in the north of Krabi. After arriving at the kayaking center with a private pier, enjoy a coffee while your guide will prepare the equipment and study the tide tables. Get a short briefing on how to use the paddles before boarding the open kayaks. Start paddling a short distance through open water from the launching point to the mangroves forest of Ao Thalane. The guide will lead you through shallow channels and over submerged roots. Spot cliffs with supposedly thousand year old historical paintings done by sea gypsies who once lived in these area. At times, stop paddling and just listen. Silence, except for occasional sound of cicadas and rustling of leaves overhead. The aerial roots of the mangroves at Ao Thalane are home to many crustaceans which attract many game fish like snappers in these waters. You can also spot several species of birds and monkeys, in particular the crab-eating macaque monkey. Some parts of the journey requires you to negotiate sharp turns in tight spaces as you wave your way through the forest. Therefore, this tour is specially designed making it semi-private, a maximum of 10 people to one guide. Enjoy the undeveloped environment without unpleasant crowds. At midday enjoy a delicious Thai style lunch to recharge your batteries for the next adventure. Continue paddling and enter the canyons of Ao Thalane, right next to almost vertical limestone cliffs, towering above you. Enter a large cave with stalagmites and stalactites which was named the Crocodile Cave, probably because some of the hanging stalactites may look like a crocodile to those with a bit of imagination. Leave the cave, and continue through a lagoon on your way out from the forest. Surrounded by the limestone karsts, this spectacular seascape at this part of Ao Thalane is the filming location for many movies. The total paddle time is around 3 hours, not including breaks.

Excellent kayak adventure!
Claire W
, Oct 2019
My sister and I booked the half day starting at 0900. We were picked up from our hostel, which was very nice of them to accommodate us for that. You are brought directly to the launch site and provided with coffee, water and dry bag rentals. The guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. The equipment was well maintained, everyone was professional and the sights/views were second to none. A delicious lunch is included and following the conclusion of the meal you are brought straight back to your hotel (unless you booked the full day). I can’t recommend this day trip enough. Thank you Sea Kayak Krabi!

Seemed like a scam

Railay Beach to Koh Lanta by Ao Nang Princess Ferry | Mar 2020
We waited for an hour in the designated location. We eventually walked up the beach and started asking around and were told that we were supposed to meet somewhere else and the ferry had left without us. Coincidentally there was someone there offering to take us by boat and taxi for over twice as much as we paid for this ferry. Seemed like it was all set up. Then viator refused to give me a refund for a trip I never took.

A Foodies Dream!

Riverside Thai Cooking Class in Khao Lak with Market Tour | Mar 2020
The teacher, Apple, was an excellent tutor and just so friendly and sweet. We thoroughly enjoyed learning, cooking and of course eating all 7 dishes our group of 6 made. The small class size was also excellent, allowing us to ask questions and get a bit of extra help if needed - a must do for foodies travelling to Khao Lak!
