Full description

Explore some of Thailand's most iconic and stunning islands on a longtail boat cruise from Khao Lak. Cruise over turquoise waters, past lush mangroves, and see the famous James Bond Island up close. Feel the salty breeze in your hair and relax under the warm tropical sun en route.

After a pickup from your hotel in Khao Lak, board a traditional longtail boat and experience the mangrove forests and karst formations from a different perspective. Get up close to the limestone rocks on a short canoe trip before heading to Khao Phing Kan.

Marvel at rock formations such as Tapu Island and James Bond Island, used as a film location in the movie "The Man With the Golden Gun." Continue to the floating Muslim village of Koh Panyi, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch.

Next, go to Suwan Khuha Cave Temple to see the statue of the reclining Golden Buddha. Get some time to feed the resident monkeys before the return trip to Khao Lak.

Exciting excursion! From pick-up to the drive home! We were a group of 7 people and the guide really included us all in the tour and explained a lot! It was so much fun - we first took a boat past all the different rocks/coves/islands, then we did a little bit on James Bond Island, then we went kayaking and that was super fun and exciting, after that we were at "Muslim-Island" and had an excellent lunch - like a Thai family ;)) and could then look at the island together and then we went to a temple (Monkey Temple) - that was very nice and we enjoyed it given some cultural insights! A really great tour - can only be recommended!

A good varied programme enhanced by our guide, Ran, who was excellent. We started by taking a long tail boat through some stunning scenery to pick up sea canoes. Two people per canoe with a guide who paddled around the rocks and into various caves- fantastic. Back to the long tail boat to head to "James Bond Island" as featured in The Man With The Golden Gun where we disembarked for a short time. Lunch was next on a floating town (featured in Jack Whitehall's "Travels With My Father"). Then on to view some ancient cave drawings and finally a cave temple. At the temple we were able to feed the residents monkies- they especially liked the sweetcorn and peanuts. Our guide / driver, Ran, was excellent and really enhanced the day- he was good humoured, attentive and friendly, answering any questions we had- even the random ones.

We had a wonderful trip which was organised at the last minute. Oud (our guide) was very friendly and knowledgeable and struck the right balance between being informative and giving us our own time to explore. We were very lucky with a rain free day and being off season, we benefitted from relatively quiet crowds. Highly recommended and a great experience. Many thanks to Oud and his team.
