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.

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.

Would recommend. Full day with lots of variety. The canoe ride was exciting, it was high tide and to enter the grottos we had to lay flat to negotiate under the caves entrances. Really impressive. James Bond island was busy , as you would expect, nice views and good photo opportunities. Muslin floating village an eyeopener, bit grim. Naka beach nice to swim ,although again quite busy. Lunch on boat excellent and crew fantastic so friendly and helpful. Just check if you have to pay a transfer fee from hotel to port and also deckchairs on beach about 150 baht plus drinks on offer, so take some extra cash.

Amazing views, especially inside islands with the canoes
Koh Panyee water village, James Bond Island. Just things that are nice to see with your own eyes.
Nice staff, funny guide with magic tricks
Good thai food.
We had pickup set on 7am in email, and fax sent to the hotel. Nobody showed up for almost 1.5h, we could not call the company on any of provided numbers, no response on emails. Driver finally showed up about 8:20 showing us pickup information with different time: 8:15. Nobody even apologized for the mistake afterwards. We're used to much more professional approach from companies found on viator.
Couple of 'hidden costs' during the trip: national park entrance fee, waterproof bag for our stuff, you're put on the spot to give a tip we usually do, but after morning pickup adventure we didn't feel like tipping them.
Guides with poor english.

Overall very good day, but I think there are other companies with virtually same trip. Maybe they are more professional.

poorly organised, compared to the speedboat tour we went on 2 days prior it would be hard to recommend anyone wasting a whole day with this tour company and tour
