Why Travelers Choose This Tour

See more and learn a ton with your experienced guide as you explore the sea caves in safety and comfort, riding as a passenger in custom-designed kayaks made by a premier American white-water rafting manufacturer.
Phang Nga Bay lies within Ao Phang Nga National Park, a protected area that is home to diverse land and sea animals as well as lush plant life. Get away from the crowds to explore the bay with experienced local guides who take you to pristine places that most visitors don't see.

Start off in the late morning with pickup and transfer from your Phuket hotel. Ride in an air-conditioned minivan to the pier where your motorboat awaits, then enjoy a light lunch as you glide across the bay to your first destination. When you arrive, receive a short safety briefing then transfer into a sturdy inflatable kayak that is piloted by your guide and seats one or two people.

Your guide paddles your kayak into the sea caves, known as hongs (rooms) in Thai. Listen to informative commentary about the rock formations and hidden lagoons that you discover and learn about the flora and fauna of the region. Visit several  spots in the marine park, and enjoy time to rest and snack on the motorboat in between expeditions into the caves. Keep your eyes alert for wildlife such as macaques, water monitors, kingfishers, mudskippers, egrets, sea eagles and brahminy kites.

Watch the sunset from the water as the day winds down. Your guide then explains the Thai holiday Loi Kratong, when people create small floating bowls (kratong) made from banana leaves and decorated with flowers and candles. Make one of your own, and set it afloat on the water.

While you make your way back toward the shore, feast on a buffet Thai dinner cooked on the boat by the crew, who shop daily for high-quality fresh ingredients. Return to the pier two hours after sunset and transfer by minivan back to your hotel.

This tour was just brilliant, so many interesting and varied activities to do. My favourite part was being in a canoe in a dark cave and watching the plancton SPARKLE as you swish the water, just an amazing sight of nature. We were never hurried and looked after so well by all the staff. Also the food was tasty and plentiful, along with snacks here and there. A great day out not to be missed.

We've never seen anything like this in our lives. My 10 year old and I simply loved the adventure of this excursion.
The staff was great, and our local guide did an outstanding and amazing job of navigating our sea canoe through the tight spaces in the caves. Simply an unbelievable and wonderful tour!

This was a GREAT tour. So unique and beatiful scenery. My only complaint was that our kayak paddler did not speak english while other guides did speak English. It got annoying by the end of the day.

Awesome trip. A fun boat to be on because the crew was fun, helpful, and friendly. A great crew and boat! They really emphasized safety. The lunch and dinner buffet was fantastic. Especially nice was the kayaking. Such a wonderful experience and beautiful scenery. Plenty of time to swim, snorkle, and have fun. Not ruched and so well organized. A great trip to do again.

I really enjoyed the Sea Cave tour. We were taken to 3 different caves. One regular cave with a view of James Bond Island, one called the Diamond Cave which is beautiful, and a bat cave. Be cautious if you are claustrophobic because there are some tight squeezes. The lunch and dinner provided was very fresh and flavorful. The natives operate the kayak so you can sit back and enjoy the view. Be mindful that you are in THEIR country, so do not expect them to speak perfect English. They are very friendly and beautiful people. Tipping is optional, not required. Wear a bathing suit and flip flops as you will be getting on and off the boat about 3 times, once per cave. After the first cave tour, we were allowed 40 minutes to either swim or kayak without the tour guide. Be careful when swimming, one girl on my boat was stung by what she believed go be a jellyfish! Overall, absolutely beautiful views from the boat and in the caves!

Amazing tour! Our seacanoe guide, Bus, was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. Both lunch and dinner on the boat were delicious! My only caution would be to make sure you have hotel pickup planned in advance as we had some trouble with that.
