This was one of the best travel experiences we ever had. Our guide - Sunny - was really good and kept everyone cheerful and well-informed. The food on the boat was really delicious one of the best we had in Thailand. The canoe ride was a splendid experience with our canoe-rider, Boy, who was really responsible and skillful.
Really worth the time and money.
This trip was a lot more relaxing than I expected. After a long drive we arrived and quickly board the boat. We were sailing away slowly in no time, and a delicious lunch was served on board. Our kayak driver was experienced and made it very easy. We spent most of our time laying down in the kayak taking in the scenery - bliss. We had plenty of free time for a swim in the sea, and then served another delicious meal cooked on board. An afternoon storm blew in but i made the sunset magical. Once the sun had all disappeared we headed out for one last kayak to see the bioluminescent plankton. Highly recommend this whole tour!
Everything was as described, if not better. Perfect service and a very enjoyable and memorable tour.
When you read others say this is a must do, you might be like meh I'd rather just go the Phi Phi Islands and swim. You'd be wrong. This is truly an amazing, jaw dropping, once in a life time experience. You're on these kayaks, with a tour guide behind you paddling and guiding you through massive caves and under islands to get to some great destinations. All I can say is bring your camera! You don't get too wet on this tour but a swim suit underneath some clothes is recommended. The guides are THE BEST. Great group of guys that try really hard to make you happy. Bring some cash to tip cause these guys deserve it. Our guide was Chalee and took time to show us all the small things of the area including wildlife and secluded areas. The food and fruit was great and the after kayaking time was great. You just have to see this for yourself. By far the best tour I've taken around the world.
Stunningly beautiful and amazingly incredible! We loved it! Much Better than we expected it to be!

I can honestly say this was the highlight of my trip. The bus service was prompt in picking me up in the morning in an air conditioned van, and thankfully, sent out many vans to pick up guests so that the car rides were not longer than 40 minutes per group. You quickly board the boats, but wait just a few minutes at a shop upon arrival at the marina. I strongly recommend you buy a plastic phone holder if like me you are using it as your photo-taking apparatus. It was only 100 baht in the store, so very reasonable and absolutely indispensable for the day!
You board a bus to ride down the pier to board the two story boat, and are served lunch right away as you pull away from the marina. I do recommend you are at leasy physically able to climb a ladder to participate in this tour, as it is necessary to get to the second level of the boat. Lunch was spring rolls, vegetables, various drinks chilled glass water bottles, green tea, fruit punch, etc, fried noodles, etc. and was pretty tasty.
You then ride about 1hr approximately to the islands. The staff which speak excellent English and Chinese as there are many Chinese guests, do a great job of telling you exactly what the itinerary will be for the day. My experience included the following:
2. First cave: bat cave - cave filled with bats but you are far away from them and they are harmless, and traveling through the cave to explore the inner island's lagoon, to see mudskippers. It seriously looks like jurassic park its incredible.
3. Second cave: Diamond cave - has stalactite formations that sparkle like diamonds, truly a sight to see.
4. Dinner - Chicken, fish, fried rice, fruit, etc. More food than you can imagine and was very tasty.
5. Third Cave - bio-luminous cave where you can see the glowing organisms in the water.
You also get 40 minutes of free time to either borrow one of the sea canoes to do your own paddling in the bay or to swim near to boat. B
It was AMAZING!! It was a very nice and relaxing tour.The food was delicious and fresh! I would definitely recommend coming for this trip. It's worth an experience!
The experience was amazing. I really cant put it all into words. You wont regret this trip.
AMAZING!!!! The people, the food, the location, the fun - the whole trip was fabulous!!!
The trip was fantastic, the views were beautiful, the cave tour was amazing, the lunch was very good, the crew was great. We made a floating flower arrangement which was beautiful.You get to experience nature in a very peaceful manner. The trip is a must.
100 worth it!!! So amazing to see nature in the raw like this - up close and personal! The kayak guides were fantastic - very knowledgeable, kind, and funny! And the food on the boat was GREAT! I agree with a lot of the other reviews - this is a must do if you do nothing else in Thailand!!!
I would encourage anyone to take this trip over the other sea kayaking options. At night you make a festival float and light it inside a cave - very cool. Once the lights are put out, they show you the bioluminescent critters in the water. Spectacular close to a great day.
This is the BEST tour out there. If you only have enough money to do one tour, skip it and do this one!! this tour out ranks all the tours in the South East Asia tours. The most amazing crew, staff and owner out there! you cant imagine the worlds history and enormity until you have done this tour. the food was unbelievable and the stuff we got to do will stay with me forever!
This tour was absolutely amazing. The team on the boat were great, very informative of the surroudings and very friendly. Got to see some amazing caves and islands and the sunset out there just topped off the amazing day we had. Would highly recommend going!
This was a really great tour and a good value for the price! Hotel pickup and drop-off was great, as was the food and activities throughout the day. We had an excellent guide, with great English, who took extra care to show us as much as possible. Making the krathong was super fun, too, and lighting them up after dark was the perfect ending to a beautiful day!
BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING!!! Everyone MUST do this tour! Professionally run and not to be missed.
This tour was so much fun! Easy hotel pick up and drop off, great guides and staff on the boat, beautiful and informative tours of caves, a fun swim call or solo kayaking break, and delicious food. Would highly recommend this tour!
The tour didn't include James Bond island however it was still worth the money. I enjoyed every moment of the journey. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. As there was heavy raining, we missed the sunset, but it was still lovely. We loved the Sea Cave kayaking.
This was an excellent tour, our guide was very imformative, there was a lot packed into the trip, we did the caves, saw monkeys on an island, did some kayaking ourselves, the food was very good all the staff were freindly nad nothing was too much trouble
This tour was amazing and very worth it! Food was delicious too. Once in a lifetime experience!
