What you can expect

Enjoy an afternoon kayaking in sea caves in Phang Nga Bay with an experienced guide, including limestone caves and hidden lagoons discovered by John Grey in 1989. Eat a delicious seafood buffet and cap off the evening by floating a handmade flower Kratong in a natural light show.

Get picked up at mid-day in an air-conditioned minivan and enjoy a nutritious lunch aboard a twin-engine boat. Get a briefing about the natural and geological sites of Phang Nga Bay, and how to navigate its caves.

Kayak through limestone caves and lagoons in hand-made kayaks. Discover hidden rooms within the caves populated with macaques, water monitors, kingfishers, mu-skippers, egrets, sea eagles, and brahminy kites. Visit a few more caves with your guide and participate in a Loy Krathong (flower) workshop as the sun begins to set.

After dark, float your hand-made Krathong in a spiritual natural light show complete with fireflies and bio-luminescent plankton. Eat a delicious seafood buffet on the trip back, prepared with fresh and high-quality ingredients. At the end of the tour, get dropped off back at your hotel.
