Fun experience however very hard work (exhausting) kayaking against the current in the ocean. Would not suit unfit or old people. Was not relaxing as we were constantly kayaking and no time spent resting (except early on at a beach). Half of the mangrove trip was unaccessible due to low tide, so that was a disappointment as we did not get to see everything that we could. Saw a couple of monkeys but no other wildlife. Also went to Hong Island which was beautiful and worth seeing but very crowded. Once again, could not see the lagoon on Hong Island as water level was too low. I thought we would see this by the way it was advertised. The guide was friendly and nice but there was no interaction or explanation during either activity about what we were seeing. I would have particularly liked the guide to explain what we seeing and facts about the nature during the kayak ride but there was nothing. This trip was good, but I must admit, it was not as good as I thought it was going to be.
Awesome trip! Things were pretty unclear in the beginning - not a lot of communication - but once you’re in the kayak, it is a stunning experience. We did the half day morning trip with no lunch and it was just us & one other traveler with our guide. Most of the groups we saw were at least 10 boats so we felt very lucky! It was the perfect amount of time in the kayak. I would not recommend this trip if you’re not a nature lover or don’t enjoy a good work out. Kayaking is not hard but does require some upper body strength!
This was the highlight of my Thailand trip, well planned, small group, a great guide and beautiful locations and mangroves. We were picked up from our hotel in Ao Nang by 8.50 and the location was a half hour drive. We were then given instructions on how to paddle. It was a small group and it made the experience even better. Views were worth it. This is a must do in Krabi and i glad i booked the tour with them.
Had a great afternoon kayaking around the mangroves with our excellent guide. Finished off with a delicious beach barbecue and glorious sunset. Cannot recommend this trip highly enough! Beautiful and peaceful with some great wildlife x
We started visiting hong island in the morning because the water level was not high for kayaking. After the lunch, we moved for kayaking and it was so fun! We did it for like 3 hours and I think it was our highlight of stay in Krabi.
