Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Phang Nga Bay Sea Cave Tour from Phuket Including Lunch and Dinner

Explore the caves of Phang Nga Bay by sea kayak.

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.

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.

I booked the tour online and confirmed all the pick-up time and location twice. Unfortunately, it took several phone calls to sort out the pick-up as the office entered incorrectly. We arrived in time for the tour and missed the waiting time at the souvenir which was a blessing in disguise. The tour was fantastic. Our guide was energetic and made sure we got to see a monkey, bats, lizards, a type of frogs unique to the area and the bats. This experience was unique and the sites were incredible. The meals were above average. At the end of the evening, we had forgotten the initial mix-up and had an enjoyable adventure.

This was a fantastic day, from the research I did it was the only tour that allows you to be out in Phang Nga Bay for the sunset, which was incredible. Leaving later in the day also meant that we were the only people at the destinations we kayaked around. The staff were wonderful and so was the food
