Visit lesser-known beaches and islands by longtail boat on this half-day tour from Phuket. Cruise to three different islands to check out sites like the Rays dune and a local village, plus go snorkeling on a reef. Lunch prepared by islanders is included. This is a great way to escape the crowds and enjoy a peaceful day amid Thailand's natural beauty.
Your tour starts in the late morning, after most of the boat tours from Phuket have departed (your hotel pickup time depends on the location, so make sure to confirm with the local operator after booking).
On board your longtail boat, cruise across the sea to your first stop, a sand dune, where you can walk to the islet in the middle and look for the wild stingrays that are often spotted here. Then head to a snorkeling spot for time in the water, where you can swim with marine life such as giant clams, blue starfish, coral, and sometimes pink blooming jellyfish.
Next, visit a beach with rock formations that look like Maoi, and then enjoy swimming and sunbathing before continuing to your last stop, the largest island of the three, where you'll visit a village. Look for wildlife such as monkeys, flying fox, hornbills, clams, anchovies, and seashells, and take advantage of optional kayaking or batik painting, if you wish (own expense). Lunch is prepared by villagers.
Your tour then ends with the trip back to the pier in Phuket, where a driver meets you to transfer you back to your hotel.
Note: Tour itinerary may be reversed depending on the tide.
