We loved this tour, primarily because we arrived earlier than the crowds, our boat driver was friendly and keen to make sure we were looked after and we enjoyed our day.
James Bond island was smaller than expected but views amazing. Lunch was good but please explore to the floating market. We didn't and wish we had.
Hong Island is beautiful and you get there just as crowds are departing which is great.
Our tour was from Krabi which was great as the big tours come in from Phuket.
All round a good day, but not great if the weather is wet. Wish we'd had more fun but the tour company can't control that.
The day started right on time, we were taken by a minibus to somewhere near Phang Nga Bay, it was a rainy day on 28th Nov 2017. The whole trip was on a speedboat, it was about 12-14 of us not crowded at all and enough room for everyone, there were 4-5 guys for 14 of us.. the main guide was moosa and he was so much fun, always eager to take our pictures telling us poses, always smiling and very cheerful, others were friendly and caring too. It was my first day trip in Thailand and omg it was so cool, everywhere I looked I felt like taking a picture. We first halted just for a picture at these beautiful looking rocks, then at james bond island, then a spectacular location where we kayaked, then had food and then snorkelled at hong island where we saw some really pretty fishes, we were the last ones there so we had the whole island to ourselves. A Must do activity when in Ao Nang.
This was a very fun tour! We were often the first to arrive at places so it was nice to be there before the huge crowd. I don't know if it's always like that or if we were lucky though. The crew was very sweet too! When we stopped in a bay, one of the guys took the time to take a photo of each and every person who wanted one at the front of the boat with the background, on your own cell! I ended up with 5-6 pictures, angled a little differently and it allowed me to choose the best! The food at lunch was good buffet style and so was the fruit given on board in the afternoon! For the cave part, we took the option with the kayak, which was more like an inflatable canoe. If you expect to paddle and explore, think again! Each boat has someone there paddling for you though my friend got to paddle on the way back so if you want to tip, don't forget to bring it with you before leaving the speed boat!
Gave it a four stars, because it made me give a rating. We didn't get to do this tour because of the weather. Instead we did the four island tour and had a great time. Wear a sun shirt even if it is cloudy or torrential downpours like we had because if the sun comes out even for a minute, you will get burned. My advice is sign up for this one, but realize it may get cancelled because James Bond island is a long way from Krabi. They were really good about refunding our money and it was easy to book a shorter closer trip the night before.
A fantastic tour from Krabi! We had a large group (11 people) and as a result we had our own private speed boat from Krabi Discovery Tours. Khun Sky was our Captain and gave us an amazing day. They allowed us to move from place to place on our own schedule and truly made the day special. Amazing!
