Phang Nga Bay day trip.Phang Nga Bay Kayaking Day Tour

Although we are not really in the day trip business, we do run day trips on request.

Explore world-famous Phang Nga Bay's many stunning islands, caves, and mangrove channels in a way that is completely different from other tour operators. Our goal is to see the bay without seeing other visitors and to do it in proper sit-inside kayaks instead of sluggish sit-on-tops or inflatables. Unlike the others, YOU get to paddle your kayak. You don't have a guide paddle for you.

Luckily, everyone else goes to the northwest corner of the bay or the southern regions, we go to the northeast corner... just as beautiful, just as much to offer and many paddling options.

Our day trip is designed for first-timers and beginners. If you're an active person, you can do this.

Phang Nga Bay Itinerary

We usually go to visit the hong in Koh Roi (a hong is a hidden inner island lagoon), Koh Kudu Noi and Koh Kudu Yai when we do day trips. Sometimes we also visit Koh Batang. See a map of Phang Nga Bay at the bottom of this page.

There are nice cliffs on the Kudu islands as well as some small secluded beaches. Potential wildlife sightings include Brahminy Kites (raptors), White-bellied Sea Eagles, Long-tail Macaques (monkeys), Brown-winged Kingfishers, Collared Kingfishers and Water Monitor Lizards. Ko Batang offers more exciting cliffs and there is one lovely beach on the west side of the island.

There is also rare sightings of Dugong in Phang Nga Bay, and infrequent sightings of Dolphins as well.

In the interest of being more environmentally friendly, we utilize the public ferry from Phuket to get to Koh Yao Noi. Once on the island, our private longtail support boat escorts you to the various islands.

Thai food in Phang Nga Bay.If you have more time, you can participate in our multi-day Phang Nga Bay tours. We also offer mountain biking trips on Koh Yao Noi in the bay.

Lunch is always a treat

We serve a variety of Thai dishes. The degree of spice is up to you.

If you want to try the 'real deal', then that's what you'll get. Vegetarian and pure vegan food is also available. If you are a vegetarian, please let us know which type. In other words, do you eat eggs, fish sauce, oyster sauce, etc?

We use reusable plastic boxes so as to not generate trash. A locally-owned restaurant on Koh Yao Noi prepares our lunches. Everything that they make is delicious, especially when served on a secluded beach in Phang Nga Bay.
