Know More about this tour

Your day trip from Phuket begins with hotel pickup by a friendly driver in the morning and a transfer to the exclusive Dolphin Seaway Pier. Here, take a short break to enjoy a live band before hopping into your speedboat to Phang Nga Bay.

Located in the Strait of Malacca, Phang Nga Bay is famous for its limestone karsts and stunning scenery. More than 100 islands and outcrops jut up from the emerald green sea, but perhaps none are as popular as the so-called James Bond Island, named for its starring role in the 1974 movie The Man with the Golden Gun.

Situated in Ao Phang Nga National Park, this famous landmark is actually a pair of islands called Ko Khao Phing Kan along with a 66-foot-tall (20-meter) islet called Ko Tapu. After your visit, you’ll feel like 007 as you speed away toward your next destination, Talu Island. Here, climb aboard a canoe and let your guide paddle you around the isle’s sea caves and hidden lagoons.

Hop out to explore the area’s stalactite caves, some more than 164 feet (50 meters) long. Equipped with a helmet and flashlight, follow your guide on foot into secret caverns with imaginative names like Ice Cream Cave.

Afterward, glide through the waterways of the mangrove swamps in the north of the bay to experience an untouched natural preserve. During your day trip, you can cool down when your guide stops for a swim break.

Enjoy a traditional Thai set lunch (vegetarian option available; includes soft drinks, coffee and tea) at Koh Panyee, a Muslim village built on stilts in the sea. Take the opportunity to witness daily life in this unique community as you walk around or shop after your meal.

Finish your day at a secluded beach on Naka Island, where you can relax, swim or work on your tan. You have more than an hour of free time here before departing Phang Nga Bay for Phuket, arriving back at the pier with drop-off at your hotel.

  • Excellent day trip - pick up and drop off from your hotel, beautiful surroundings, great lunch - plenty to eat
    kayaking was great around the lagoon/cave

  • So much fun and a great way to see lots of the islands.

  • AWESOME!!! had a great time, fantastic staff, friendly, professional, fun. So many activities, fantastic lunch. HIGHLY recommended.

  • This has been by far the best tour organized. I am greatly thankful to Viator and local Tour East Thiland for making our experience amazing. Hotel Pick Up and drop was on time and nicely coordinated. James Bond Island was worth watching. Lunch was again well balanced and we liked it. The staff at our boat was polite and helpful. Light refreshment are provided in boat. Great scenic experience and I highly recommend this tour.

  • Had a fantastic time!

  • On the particular day that our tour was scheduled it was raining and my wife and I were extremely close to canceling our tour with the full understanding that we wouldn't get a refund. Let me tell you I'm GLAD we did not cancel. Our driver that picked us up from our hotel was very nice. We had a whole van to ourselves for the entire ride from the hotel to the pier 45mins. I initially thought the empty van for the entire ride was an indication that others might have cancelled due to the weather. After arriving at the pier we quickly realized that we were not the only ones and luckily the rain slowed enough to the point where it was safe enough to go out on the water. There were approximately 16 other nice people that joined us for this particular tour. Staff that met us at the pier and that traveled with us throughout the day were excellent. The highlight of the entire tour was the canoe portion and the portion where you walk through a cave I'm pretty sure this is not the correct descriptor in waist deep water. The final destination for the walking portion is absolutely gorgeous. The stop at the floating village was also fantastic where we ate lunch delicious food by the way. The beach stops were also enjoyable but they didn't compare to the canoe, cave and village stops. If you are looking for an exceptional experience while in Phuket, this tour will not disappoint by any means. Fantastic Day Trip!! Highly recommended!!

  • Absolutely unbelievable, highly recommended.

  • Overall, my family and I really enjoyed this experience. I will share that there was a mix up in understanding what time the company was to come and pick our family up from the hotel, arriving much earlier than what was noted in Viator. After speaking with the manager we were able to reschedule to another day and enjoy the trip. The bus ride to and from the drop off point was very long and others who were not participating in the experience were picked up both going and returning to our hotel. Other than these logistics, the trip itself was wonderful! We went to three islands and had plenty of time to take pictures, enjoy the sights and walk around. I would advise that you wear swim shoes as they were really handy for the first island stop. The canoe ride at the second island was my favorite! My son and I were in one boat and my husband and daughter were in the other. The guides were very mindful to keep our family near to one another so we could share in the experience together, but also enjoy it separately. They also didn't talk the whole time while canoeing so it was quite relaxing. The final island stop was enjoyable because you could just rest, get drinks and/or food or play in the water. The only problem I had is all the other boats that were touring had stopped at the island at the same time we did, so it was slightly crowded and there were few seats only because a large corporate group was scheduled to come in soon. We arrived back at the drop off point at the designated time and then boarded the bus to our hotel. Of course I shared earlier about the driver of our bus picking up people along the way and going way out of the way to return us to our hotel-1 hour more! This was very irritating. But, overall the trip was wonderful and we would do it again making sure we were clear on all of the arrangements for pick up, drop off and transporting to and from the hotel.

  • It was a very nice tour. Phuket is amazing and we really want to come back. Phang Nga Bay is really a beautiful place. We had some very good surprises, like the sea caves. The James Bond Island is also very nice. Just be prepared for some clibimg If you want to take a good picture.

  • Nice day, very picturesque
    Wasn't a fan of the last beach we were taken to, there was rubbish everywhere not in the water but behind where you sit, it seems all the food wrappers once tourists leave are just thrown into the bushes
    Also full of tourists, I think I was just picturing a more remote, pristine beach
    Other than that 80 of the day was great and the staff onboard the boat were wonderful, main guy was quite funny and we had a great day out
