Pink Dolphins

The most special feature of Khanom is the pink dolphins – a rare albino breed with a stunning pink hue. They are regularly seen from the old ferry pier and the electric plant pier around dawn and dusk, and resorts are now offering full-day tours (from 1700B) that include viewing the dolphins by boat and a car tour to the area's caves and waterfalls.

If you just want to see the dolphins you can hire a boat for a few hours (for up to six people) for 1200B. Enquire at your hotel.
