Discover Bond’s playground: The ultimate James Bond Island guide
James Bond Island is located in an incomparably beautiful part of the world, easily accessible from Phuket. A wonderful, thrilling part of the world and a superb place to try out some Phang Nga Bay sea cave canoeing & James Bond Island exploration.
Why is it called James Bond Island Phuket?
The name comes from the famous 1974 film ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’ in which James Bond battles the villain Scaramanga at his hidden lair. The iconic area itself was chosen for its incredible, unique rock formations, pristine beaches, and isolated location. We often hear the name Phuket associated with the James Bond Island tour by big boat as it is most easily arranged and departs from there.
How much does the James Bond Island tour cost?
With John Gray’s Sea Canoe, your James Bond Island tour cost will be 3,590 Thai Baht per person whether you choose the morning or afternoon excursion. Our fascinating Phang Nga Bay trip by daylight also incorporates visiting and canoeing in James Bond Island.
How long is the James Bond Island tour?
An essential trip for all movie-buffs, or just those who wish to visit one of the most beautiful, famous places on Earth, is our superb day trip to James Bond Island. The tour starts in the morning and returns around 4 pm, or you might prefer our alternative day trip to James Bond Island, starting at lunchtime and incorporating a stunning sunset on the return journey. Either way, the total trip time is around 8 hours but is subject to change depending on weather conditions or other variables.

Can you go on James Bond Island?
Guests can fully explore James Bond Island, but it is not possible to climb onto the famous outcrop containing Scaramanga’s secret solar-powered weapon, as the overhang and dangerous, rough surfaces prevent it.
What is the dress code for James Bond Island?
Guests wishing to cosplay as Bond characters are certainly more than welcome to do so, however, there is no official dress code for James Bond Island. As always, the sun will be shining in beautiful Thailand, so loose, warm-weather clothing will be most appropriate. Don’t forget to bring swimming costumes and a hat!
