Full description

Choose from either the Early Bird Tour which departs at 5:30 AM, or the Afternoon Sunset Tour which departs at 12:30 PM.  For the Early Bird option, escape the crowds of tourists and discover the beautiful 4 Islands with no one around. Catch sight of the spectacular sunrise while you set sail to the first destination, Phra Nang Beach. Phra Nang Beach is next to Railay Beach and commands an enviable location on the tip of the bay looking out on the emerald expanse of the Andaman Sea. Discover Phra Nang Cave, which has a spirit house dedicated to the goddess of the Andaman Sea. The wooden spirit house is worshiped by the local fisherman community and offerings of wooden phallic symbols or lingams are placed throughout the cave. Add-on paddle boards are available for these options as well. At your next stop, enjoy the opportunity to snorkel in crystal clear water and maybe also witness the amazing 'Talae Waek', or 'parting sea'. At low tide, a long sandbar will emerge connecting Ko Tup to Chicken Island and Ko Mor, which allows you to walk from one island to another. In front of Chicken Island, see an island with a unique rock formation that looks like a chicken's head. Explore the area with the snorkeling equipment provided and find many tropical fish. Next, hop back on your long tail boat and head towards Ko Poda, a paradise island with powder white sand and crystal clear turquoise water where you will see many sergeant and piper fish. In front of the island, you will also see the iconic limestone formation which stands tall in the middle of the ocean and offers a great photo opportunity. After this great escape to paradise, head back to Ao Nang where you will be transferred back to your hotel.

The experience went above and beyond what we expected. Mai and her team were wonderful. From the early pick-up to the first island location where we were provided with a light breakfast and hot coffee while we waited for the sunrise. We were able to explore and they knew just where to position us to get exceptional photos. We were able to do a bit a snorkeling and then we went to the second island where we were able to snorkel while they set up lunch. The Pad Thai, fruit and beverages were perfect. We were able to take photos and explore that island, as well. We rode by Chicken Island before going to Railay Beach. We didn’t stay long (our choice), as it was extremely crowded. During the entire experience, Mai and her team made sure we had everything we needed - and more. We never felt rushed and had time to venture out on our own and explore at our leisure. I cannot recommend this private experience enough - well worth it.

we had to change to a private speed boat instead because of the weather. We had Dean as our tour guide for the early bird experience. The tour was absolutely brilliant, as we arrived early no other tourists were on the island and we had coffee and banana muffins on the first island. we then travelled to the next island where we went snorkeling, Dean was great and would point out all the cool fish. We then went to the next island where they gave us a picnic of pad Thai, fresh coconuts water melon, fried chicken etc. Dean took so many wonderful photos and videos of us and had so much knowledge to share. 100% recommend this trip! The rest of crew and captain on the boat were also very friendly and professional.

Amazing tour! Completely beyond our expectations. The program is quite extensive and very interesting. Not just your average boat ride - we swam amongst fishes on our own private island shore, explored caves and had a tasty home cooked meal. The driver and the guide were very helpful and let us tailor the tour to our individual desires. Overall, very pleasantly surprised by how well organized everything was!
