You will genuinely be experiencing a location among the top five anywhere on the planet when it comes to this kind of activity, and it is not a day you will soon forget.

For those with stamina and a thirst to cram as much excitement as possible into one day, this long-tail boat tour of Phuket is perfect when taken in tandem with our incredible Hong by Starlight trip. 

A day of marvels

Your Phuket Island tour begins as you are picked up at your accommodation and taken by luxury minivan to your exciting vessel, the fast long-tail boat that will speed you to your first destination. 

Depending on personal choices, you can discuss with your experienced guide any other factors like the weather or tides that come into play. All being normal, you can walk through a naturally-formed mangrove-filled hong (Thai for ‘room’) and keep your eyes and ears open for local flora and fauna. 

Your guide will give you detailed kayaking instructions, and you will soon be merrily paddling your own sea cave canoe in Phuket, investigating the hidden caves and lagoons. If you prefer, you can opt to paddle a double kayak with a guide who was probably born and raised in Phang Nga Bay; talk about local knowledge!
