What You Can Expect

Phang Nga Bay Cruise and Canoe Tour from Phuket Including James Bond Island

See the karst landscape of Phang Nga Bay on a day trip from Phuket.

The emerald waters of Ao Phang-Nga National Marine Park surround hundreds of small islands and limestone karsts topped with lush forest. Your guide shows you some of their highlights on a day out from Phuket that begins with early morning pickup from your hotel.

It takes approximately 40 minutes travel in a climate-controlled minivan to reach the pier on Phang Nga Bay. Hop aboard your motorboat and drink in the scenery as your captain takes you to Koh Panak and nearby Koh Hong. As you cross the water, hear a safety briefing and informative commentary about the region. The crew serves up hot coffee, tea and light snacks.

Your captain anchors the boat at your first stop. Transfer to a canoe and follow your guide into a hidden lagoon in the middle of a crescent-shaped island, admiring the fringing coral reefs in the waters below.

Next, enjoy about 30 minutes on the beach at James Bond Island (Khao Phing Kan) the island made famous in the movie The Man with the Golden Gun. You'll also paddle a canoe to check out stalactites and stalagmites nearby, before transferring to a traditional Thai longtail boat to visit the fishing village of Koh Panyi.

Established in the late 1700s by Malay fishermen, Koh Panyi is a small Muslim village known for its over-the-water houses built on stilts, including a mosque, school and floating sports field. After snapping photos of the picturesque village, return to your motorboat for a Thai-style lunch. Then enjoy a couple of hours at your leisure on Naka Island to swim, canoe or kick back on the white-sand beach.

In the mid-afternoon, return to your motorboat for the journey back to Phuket, where your day trip ends with hotel drop-off.

It's been more than two years since I took this trip, but I will never forget the great time I had on this tour! The crew had the best sense of humor and was so accommodating. I remember we had a great lunch on board, super delicious. We stopped at a small little fishing village with a floating soccer field as well as took a toured kayak into the caves. We hopped onto a smaller boat to get to James Bond Island -- it was amazing to see in person! We ended the day at a small island with a semi-private beach where we sipped on cocktails in the water. It was truly the most perfect day, and I still get a smile on my face when I think about it!

Did this tour early in Jan 2018. The weather was excellent and the waters were calm . The staff on the boats were highly trained and helpful. They helped me take some great pictures. They do brief you on safety, how to keep area's clean and provide you with life jackets. A lot has been said by previous contributors which is true and things are better now when it comes to disembarking from boats.You won't get your legs wet as there are floating platforms that anchor close to your boat and with staff to give you hand.
The food provided is varied and with good selection for veggies.
My tip is to take the free water when the tour ends. This will come in very handy, especially with small kids. The journey back to the hotels can last over an hour with rush hour traffic and with AC going on in the tour bus, your throats will soon dry up. Also you will have an opportunity to purchase a see through water proof mobile phone covers which are better quality than the one's I got from Ebay.
Enjoy and take great pictures.

Phuket is a big place... if you're not in a very touristy area the pick-up wait may be long, but don't worry... it's totally worth it! The staff was awesome! Very funny! The views were spectacular! Just breath-taking! The lunch was yummy... same with the snacks! I would definitely recommend this trip!

Brilliant tour. One of the best tours i have done. The team on the boat were great, very funny and entertaining. The tour was very well organised, a good variety of transport experienced. Great photos. Great lunch on the boat and then finished by just chilling on the beach and swimming. Highly recommended. Even my wife enjoyed the canoeing experience and she doesn't normally do that sort of thing.

Great day although we missed the fishing village and snorkelling due to the boat breaking down, but what we did experience was superb. Crew were entertaining and informative, the canoe into the island and under the stalactites was amazing and James Bond Island is a must, very small island but a must for all Bond fans.

We chose this tour because you get to do a little bit of everything while seeing many of the sites. We cruised on the big boat, canoed through sea caves, we rode in a longtail boat and also got to swim on the beach. The tour was very well planned, giving us just the right amount of time at each site. All the boats used were very clean and well maintained. The lunch buffet they provided aboard the big boat was delicious! The crew were very nice, helpful and entertaining.
