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

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

About half way along the coast between Than Bok Khorani and Krabi town is a bay of mangroves that is one of the most beautiful in Thailand. Arrive at the private pier and depart to the mangrove forest area. Here, bays and canyons are like passageways. 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.

Absolutely the best day we’ve spent in Thailand (Phuket and Krabi) so far! Really friendly and helpful staff. Pick up on time in Aonang for the 30min drive to Ao Thalane. I recommend the 8 hour option because the tide varies day by day, with highest tide at full moon, and the main mangroves are only accessible by kayak at high tides. So if you have the Hong island trip as well, the tour guides will switch the itinerary to give you kayaking either in the morning or afternoon depending on tide. Hong island is gorgeous, with a natural lagoon in the centre. You pass several other islands on the way there and back, so lots of photo ops with the ‘long tail boats’ passing. There’s a fairly tough climb to a high lookout point, but also great snorkeling and a nature trail through the island. The kayaking takes you through sea water canyons between high rock formations, and through mangroves with birds, insects and monitor lizards. The sea kayaks are safe but a little uncomfortable, I found.

This tour is actually unbelievable. We got there and were the only ones on the tour because of low tourism at the moment. Our tour guide Anan was the kindest most knowledgable guide. We kayaked and saw monkeys held crabs and saw amazing views. We then went for lunch and we expected a street food kind of place which we have no problem with, but it was this amazing cafe which we couldn’t believe for the price. I think that what made this day so special was Anan and his photography skills. Honestly he took so many pictures that I will treasure forever and even made us a video. This is the best tour in krabi and I can’t believe how inexpensive it is. Do not go with any other kayak tour and do this one you won’t regret it one bit!

Being the only ones to have booked for this day, we had the chance to have a VIP tour with my partner. Breathtaking landscapes: huge limestone cliffs and mangroves. Unfortunately, we had to turn around instead of doing the full course because the water level was too low. On the other hand, the low tide makes it possible to observe or even approach the monkeys which come to feed by pecking in the mud. The guide was very nice, took many photos and videos of us and even made a very nice little montage at the end that he sent us by WhatsApp. After the tour, we had some fruit accompanied by sticky rice before being driven back to our hotel. An excellent half day with very good value for money. I recommend !

Incredible visit made in early November 2021: high tide, no sun but no rain and our small group was alone in the mangroves, we were truly privileged. Our guide was very available and adorable, he took lots of photos for us and sent them to us in the evening. After the visit, we took the lunch option. We thought it would be a buffet, but our group was taken to a restaurant near the village. It was excellent and very filling (fresh fruit, shrimp soup, fried chicken, fried rice and noodles/omelet), well worth the extra money! Remember to check the tide times before booking (morning or afternoon).

Absolutely brilliant, we could only handle half a day as it is quite strenuous when the current kicks in. Rep ( Tak I think she was called) was brilliant and helpful and even videoed and took pictures along the was for free and sent them, the pictures are amazing. Dinner was lovely and one of the best I’ve had in the last 4 years. Absolutely fantastic trip, 5⭐️’s from us. Thank you for a wonderful day x
