Sea Kayaking in Ao Thalane & Optional Full-Day Hong Island

This recently discovered area is a superb setting for having an encounter with an ecosystem unlike others. This bay is known for its rich fauna. Certainly a highlight of this setting is the narrow channels which are passable during all but extremely low tide periods. Several species of Kingfishers, Little Herons and Crab-Eating Macaques are almost guaranteed sightings in the remains of a jewel of a destination, undeveloped and without being horrendously crowed. Option with Hong Island Visit: Hong Island stands out as the most beautiful island of the Andaman cost. As you approach from the sea, the towering limestone formation & crystal clear water inspires images of the deserted. In the middle of this beautiful island there lies a hidden lagoon spot for local fisherman and also one place where bird nests are collected. The coral reefs here are amazing and siphons can also be found. Option with Sunset and BBQ Dinner: Your final destination on the tour will be Laem Jamoog Kway. Here you can shower off the salt water in the natural spring waters cascading down from the cliff. Take a short climb to witness the best sunset in Thailand. Relax and enjoy the sunset while you wait for your BBQ being prepared at the beach. After finishing your BBQ dinner, you may continue to relax as a Longtail Boat takes you back to the Sea Kayak Pier under a blanket.

We had opted for the afternoon slot which starts at 1pm. We were straight up taken for lunch in a pretty cafe with really good food. Post this, we were taken to the starting point. We went Kayaking with our guide Otto - he was knowledgeable and really helped us during the hours as our kayak got stuck in shallow waters couple of times. The kayak experience varies with the tides during the day and its better to check with your provider on what is the best time to kayak on that given day. But we had booked from before so we stuck to our afternoon slot. As a result, we got some showers during our schedule which is why we had to cut short the trip to 2.5hrs instead of he entire 4 hours. Also spent some time on the Star Fish Beach with Otto who showed us around. Spotted some macaques and monitor lizards while kayaking in the canyon. Overall a good experience and a first for us. At least gave us the confidence to go out kayaking on our own later during our trip.

I picked this tour because it offered the Hong Island optional add-on. We enjoyed kayaking in the morning, and the relaxed pace of Hong Island. I was initially concerned it would be 8 hours or Kayaking, which fortunately wasn’t the case. I think the tour description can provide more details, and the tour company didn’t really respond to my questions either. I would recommend this tour, but next time I will probably pay a little extra to make it a private tour since some time was wasted in the morning to pick up (and wait for other guests who were late).

This was my third activity through Get Your Guide and all of them have been awesome! Our guide was fantastic and knew the best ways to go. Beautiful and relaxing way to spend a morning.

Had an amazing morning out kayaking. Our guide A was charismatic and knowledgeable and helped to take some awesome pics for the group. Book with these guys you won’t regret it.

Really fun kayaking! Saw monkeys and monitor lizards. The guide was also really friendly and informative and also took loads of pictures for us.
