Itinerary

Stop At: Phuket Island Hopper (Thailand)

Get picked up from your hotel in Phuket Town, Patong, Karon or Kata Beach by shared minivan. The exact pick-up time will be confirmed by email after you have made the booking. Start the trip with a coffee or tea at Phuket Island Hopper Pier on Koh Siray and depart by speed boat to Phang nga bay. Phang nga bay is filled with more than 100 islands and rocky, limestone outcrops jutting high out of the emerald green sea.

First stop will be at Koh Hong, which is an uninhabited island, except for the birds, white-faced gibbons and giant monitor lizards that can be often spotted on the main white sand beach. Its interior is home to a large lagoon to which its Thai name 'Hong' refers. This is best accessed at low tide by kayak, as the diminishing water level makes its color change drastically from a deep emerald green to a clear turquoise.

Cruise further to James bond island, the highlight of this tour. With its signature rocky pinnacle, it has been a major attraction ever since it featured in the 1974 Bond movie 'The Man with the Golden Gun.' Luckily it is under National Park protection and as a result no boats are allowed to go too close to the island. The best way to view James bond island is from the small beach on Khao Phing Kan.

Khao Phing Kan is a very high leaning rock that has some small caves inside. Its pretty amazing and fun to check them all out. On its crowded eastern beach, there are stalls and stands selling kick-knack souvenirs, mostly made from shells and woods.

Visit Diamond Cave and the mangrove forest at Panak Island with a guide and explore the mysterious hearts of the island.

The tour includes a Thai style lunch at the charming Panyee Island a nearby Muslim fishing village on stilts. You will have the opportunity to see daily life of a community unchanged over time.

Finish your day on a secluded beach at Lawa Island or Na Ka Island (depending on the tides). You will have time to relax on the beach and top up your tan or go swimming. We then head back to your hotel to share the photos of your unforgettable trip with your beloved ones.

Traveler Reviews

    For this price we expected to spend more time around Hong Island. The time in the floating village and at James Bond is extremely short. One of the islands mentioned is only seen from the boat for less than 5 minute. The majority of the time spent was at a tourist trap beach. This trip is way to expensive for what you get.

  • 06-Mar-2018

    The experience overall was amazing. It was an action packed day, with enough time at each site. The beach selected to relax at the end was quite and tranquil. Only have two things to improve- The pay toilets at the pier and the requirement to pay 20 baht for the causeway taxi made it feel like we were getting nickel and dimed for an experience we paid decent money for. The taxi driver selected to pick us up, although not an employee of the company, was cold and borderline rude to us at pickup and drop off. His attitude got us off to a bad start, which was regrettable. Despite this, the sites should not be missed, and the crew were great.

    Great tour managed to see all of the sights we wanted to, the boat was really modern and well kept. The lunch was great lots of choice and the option to do some local shopping after lunch. Friend staff and a great service highly recommend.

    Fantastic day, guide was fab. Would suggest more soft drinks on boat. Thank you for amazing memories

    Overall, a very good trip. You can't beat the sites. The highlight was definitely the canoe through the caves and lagoon.

    The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because after the prompt hotel pick-up, my partner and I had to wait about an hour an a half at the office while we waited for the rest of our group to arrive. I would have preferred either a slightly later pick-up or to get out on the water sooner. The boat was also pretty crowded and most seats don't really have great views. We also had some inconsiderate passengers on our trip, but the guides handled the situation pretty well under the circumstances--no deducted stars for that! Just a shame that some folks don't think about everyone else's experience on a trip like this.

    Highly recommended - small group, great guide and ample time at the different islands
