Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup in Ao Nang or Krabi Town in the morning, cruise by speedboat from Ao Thalane pier to one of the Andaman Sea's most stunning places. This full-day tour in the national marine park will take you to the main islands of the Hong Archipelago. On the way, stop at the rock isle of Koh Daeng, the best snorkeling spot for seeing colorful fish and corals.

Continue to Koh Hong, renowned for its vivid beauty, shallow coral reefs, and fine, sandy beaches. Jump into the island's clear waters and snorkel along the rocky ledges or take a walk through the mangrove forest. In the center of the half-circle-shaped island lies a secret lagoon, where you can opt to kayak while surrounded by limestone karsts dotting the tranquil waters. (The kayak session must be selected at booking.)

Enjoy a delicious lunch and refreshments on a tropical beach, with plenty of time to take in the beauty of the islands before you return to Krabi and your hotel.

  • Excellent trip and the mangosteen were delicious.

  • We booked the tour at 5pm the previous day via Viator and was able to call the provider Discovery Tours and arrange for pick up from our hotel for 8am the following day. The driver was very punctual and picked us up at 8 sharp the following morning. We were the first ones to be picked up, so for the next hour and 15 minutes we were in the minivan picking up the rest of the guests. Some guests are rude and were totally late to their pick up by 15 minutes. Not the providers fault. We then arrived to a pier Moon, the tour guide, gathered us all to explain how the day was going to go. This is what my friend and I gathered from what he said his English was very poor, and he made it up by yelling: we were a big group, so we went on two speed boats. Each speed boat was going to stop at 3 places, we were going to have lunch at the second location. Snorkeling equipment was being provided for free, if you loose it it's 1500 baht, in the middle of the boat there is a cooler with cold water bottles, the water is for drinking, do not pour it all over you cause it will make the boat slippery and dangerous. The first stop was depressing: by the time we arrived to the first beach, it was already packed with speedboat and longtail boats. You could smell the gas from the speed boat. The tiny beach was dirty with bottles of boat oil, water bottles, and trash. We were told that we can only swim on the same side of the boats, on the other side it's rocky and we were not allowed. I had a previous experience of getting sick by swimming in this type of water that smells like the speedboats in a marina before, so we just got our feet wet and took pictures. There were so many tourists, and the beach was so tiny we couldn't believe it. Had I know this I wouldn't have booked the tour, and this is the reason for which I'm writing this review: to warn travelers: if you like it crowed, smelly and rushed, or if you don't mind it, go for it. The second stop was the same on a bigger scale, at this point 10:30am/11 we were thinking about options to go back to Ao Nang. The provided lunch was good and we tried to be positive about the third and last stop: Hong Island proper. The National Park entrance fee was included in our package. Some other guests had to pay. This place was better because it was bigger and the place for visitors to swim in was bigger too. I believe we were allowed to spend about 2 hours there: we snorkeled and saw a few fish. We walked around and took a few good photos. We made friends with two other girls from the same tour and had an ok time. On the way back to the pier we went in this lagoon, were the tide was super low. They crew took pictures of everyone that wanted a photo in the boat with the lagoon in the background. We didn't want one. At no point there was any mention of the kayaking. I chose and paid for the kayaking option, but I was so eager for this tour to be over with that I didn't even ask. We were back on the pier by 3pm I believe. I strongly do not recommend this tour to anyone. We talked to a couple from South Korea and two girls from Miami, and we all shared the disappointment: the sites were too crowded and dirty, Moon was well meaning but he needs to learn English in order to communicate effectively, otherwise he comes across as a crazy yelling person, and what about the kayaking? We recommended them the Krabi Sunset Cruise for a wonderful experience. I hope they did that. I'm not giving it one star because they roughly provided what was listed transportation, hong island, lunch but it was very disappointing and I would like to prevent anyone getting the wrong end of the stick again.

  • This tour was efficient, friendly guide, helpful crew. plus the fee is All-in, lunch, snorkelling and kayaking equipment, entrance fee. Our guide, Mr. Moon, is attentive and helpful. The speed boat was in good condition. Lunch was good and fulfilling. The transfer from and to the dock were with good van and efficient.
