  • Full-day tour to Ao Phang-Nga National Marine Park from Phuket
  • Explore Phang Nga Bay by motorboat, canoe and longtail boat
  • Stop at Khao Phing Kan, aka James Bond Island
  • See hidden lagoons, fantastic rock formations and a fishing village with houses on stilts
  • Enjoy free time on Naka Island to swim and sunbathe
  • Includes lunch, water, soda, minivan and boat transportation
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.

It's been more than two years since I took this trip, but I will never forget the great time I had on this tour! The crew had the best sense of humor and was so accommodating. I remember we had a great lunch on board, super delicious. We stopped at a small little fishing village with a floating soccer field as well as took a toured kayak into the caves. We hopped onto a smaller boat to get to James Bond Island -- it was amazing to see in person! We ended the day at a small island with a semi-private beach where we sipped on cocktails in the water. It was truly the most perfect day, and I still get a smile on my face when I think about it!

Did this tour early in Jan 2018. The weather was excellent and the waters were calm . The staff on the boats were highly trained and helpful. They helped me take some great pictures. They do brief you on safety, how to keep area's clean and provide you with life jackets. A lot has been said by previous contributors which is true and things are better now when it comes to disembarking from boats.You won't get your legs wet as there are floating platforms that anchor close to your boat and with staff to give you hand.
The food provided is varied and with good selection for veggies.
My tip is to take the free water when the tour ends. This will come in very handy, especially with small kids. The journey back to the hotels can last over an hour with rush hour traffic and with AC going on in the tour bus, your throats will soon dry up. Also you will have an opportunity to purchase a see through water proof mobile phone covers which are better quality than the one's I got from Ebay.
Enjoy and take great pictures.

Phuket is a big place... if you're not in a very touristy area the pick-up wait may be long, but don't worry... it's totally worth it! The staff was awesome! Very funny! The views were spectacular! Just breath-taking! The lunch was yummy... same with the snacks! I would definitely recommend this trip!

Brilliant tour. One of the best tours i have done. The team on the boat were great, very funny and entertaining. The tour was very well organised, a good variety of transport experienced. Great photos. Great lunch on the boat and then finished by just chilling on the beach and swimming. Highly recommended. Even my wife enjoyed the canoeing experience and she doesn't normally do that sort of thing.

If you like boats then you will love this tour as you get to ride on so many different kinds of boats. Staff was very informative and friendly. After being taken to the pier you board a 2 story boat for the ride over to the bay. Bathrooms are available on board and the seating area is not enclosed, just a top cover. It's a big slow boat so if you want a faster ride over to the bay book a tour with a faster boat. If you have any sort of mobility issue I would not recommend this tour because we hopped onto various other boats from this big boat. The stairs on the boat are are also very steep, basically almost a ladder. The first floor of the boat is just a bathroom, kitchen and storage so you have to make your way upstairs for the seats. The first stop is canoeing. You don't get to paddle yourself, someone else does all the work and they set the course. It's a beautiful bay polluted only by the other hoards of canoes. Be sure to have some cash to tip the guide. Next you hop back on the big boat that takes you to James Bond island. The boat is too big to take you directly to the island so you hop over on a long tail boat. You might get your feet wet getting off the long-tail boat if you can't jump from the boat onto the sand. Getting back on the long tail boat means using not the most stable looking ladder and walking on the edge of the boat see pictures. Good luck handling this if you have small children with you. Next is Panyi island which I wish the tour had skipped. If someone went thru the trouble of building this floating island way out there why would they open it up to tourists? The living conditions are poor, it smells, there's flies all around, you aren't allowed to go into the church and the soccer field is a concrete slab with a field painted on it. I couldn't wait to leave. Lunch was served back on the big boat and there was a variety of dishes some of which were vegetarian friendly. Drinks were available throughout the whole tour for free. Last stop was relaxing at a beach which we got to by again, hopping onto another smaller boat. We could borrow the tours canoes and take a ride on them by ourselves for free.

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.

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.
