Visit the 4 amazing limestone islands around Krabi on a full-day tour from Phuket, spending time to do plenty of activities such as swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing, exploring and photo shooting.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Phuket by minivan in the early morning and cruise to Nopparat Thara Pier in Ao Nang on board the Ao Nang Princess ferry. Switch to the speedboat to start the island hopping to Phranang Cave Beach at the Railay Peninsula, Poda Island, Chicken Island and the sandbar at Tup Islets.
The trip includes several open water swimming and snorkeling stops of around 30 minutes. It is possible to stay on the boat during this time. Please wear a life jacket if you are not a confident swimmer. Travel time between the various beaches is maximum 20 to 25 minutes, usually less.
A popular stop is at Chicken Island, which got its name from a bizarre rock formation resembling the head of a chicken. One end of the island consists of steep cliffs, while the other end has beautiful beaches along a peninsula. This peninsula gets flooded at high tide, creating a small island. At low tide you can walk between the Tup Islets and Chicken Island.
The itinerary will vary according to the tides, so that you arrive at the sandbank as close to low tide as possible. The lunch will be provided in a restaurant on an island beach. You will be transported back to the hotel after the trip with arrival time at approx. 5:30pm.
