Tour description provided by Viator

We are the #1 ranked speedboat tour company in Thailand on Trip Advisor and are a highly acclaimed company with 13 years experience, conducting high quality tours that specialise in small tour groups and avoiding crowds of tourists.  94% of our 2500 reviews are 5 star! This tour incorporates many of the best features of the world-renowned Phang Nga Bay. Cave exploring at Koh Phanak, canoeing at Koh Hong, James Bond Island and swimming at Treasure Island, all nestled within a bay, famed for its ‘Karst’ limestone islands. The scenery truly takes your breath away.Where this trip earns its ‘Beyond’ title is our deviation to Koh Yao Noi which borders Krabi. Koh Yao Noi is a stunning hidden gem and is frequently described as “Phuket – 30 years ago!” It still harbours an ancient, agrarian lifestyle, with rice paddy fields, coconut and rubber tree plantations, Long Tail boat building and even the odd buffalo! No crowds, no rush.

Like Swiss cheese, Phanak is full of hidden caves, lagoons and hongs. We aim to select the very best location depending on the tide and weather on your day. So fire up your torches and step into a prehistoric world! Sightseeing is a strong suit of this tour since you will have the chance to see exclusive sights that not many people have seen in their lives. Duration: 45 minutesStop At: Hong Islands, Krabi Town, Krabi ProvinceSea CanoeingHong island is a stunning location for a scenic canoe trip. It is simply the best way to see these geological wonders up close and personal. Let the Thai guide take you into hongs and caves only accessible by canoe. Cruise the waters on the canoes and marvel the real natural beauty that has formed over hundreds of years, creating an amazing spectacle that will remain forever in your memory.Duration: 45 minutesStop At: James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park, Phang Nga ProvinceArguably the most famous spot in the bay, it's been a Mecca for Thai and Western tourists for over four decades, is the James Bond Island tour stop. You’ve come all this way and as Simba generally arrives well before the masses, we make a quick stop to see what all the fuss is about. This limestone marvel is perfect for you to take pictures.Duration: 45 minutesStop At: Kudu yai island (เกาะกูดูใหญ่)Treasure Island/Secret Hong SwimmingJust a few minutes from James Bond island lays a fantastic hidden cave, only accessible by swimming through a narrow passage. Jump off the front of the boat, swim to the beach. It’s the perfect opportunity to cool off before we move across the bay. This stop is subject to tide conditions and an equally beautiful and quiet beach may be selected where sea or tide conditions allow for a better experience.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Koh Yao Yai PierAs described, a truly unique location, still holding fast to a traditional existence in the face of it’s bustling brother, Phuket. Our tour takes a decidedly ‘terra firma’ turn, as we take a short trip across the south of the island to a stunning local Thai restaurant for a delicious Thai lunch.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Beach PeninsulaThe afternoon will take us to any number of beautiful beaches depending on tide and weather conditions. This is a chance to swim, snorkel (if conditions allow), relax, enjoy a light afternoon tea and sample the scenery before heading home. As previously stated, the snorkelling is very much 'introductory' but still great fun for young and old alike.Duration: 1 hour
