  • From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    6. From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    First, you will get picked up from your hotel. Start this full-day tour visiting the famous Monkey Cave of Wat Suwan Kuha. Discover the many interconnected caves in the mountain and admire the gold reclining Buddha image at the temple. Explore the magical mangrove forest of Ao Phang Nga National Park by long-tail boat. Stop at a fishing village on Pan Yee Island to enjoy a tasty lunch before seeing James Bond Island, where the blockbuster movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed. Continue to Khao Phing Kan to see the stunning limestone karst formations. Experience the area’s beauty by sea canoe, paddling around Talu Island before returning to the pier. To ensure your safety, your expert guide will paddle the canoe for you, as the waters in this area can be difficult for paddling. 

    This experience was amazing and I’d definitely recommend to anyone. Our tour guide was lovely and always willing to take pictures for you and even recommended the best spots to take these. One of the best moments of this trip had to be kayaking through the caves - an unforgettable experience and our kayak guide took some brilliant photos for us. The only downside for us was the length of the transfer in order to board the boat which was around 3 hours each way - however for the experience it’s 100% worth it.

    The description mentions you will go in a cave but doesn’t mention you will be wading in water potentially up to neck height. The trek through the cave it almost 1km also. It was great fun! But something to consider. Where footwear you don’t mind getting wet and don’t take a big bag as the tour guide only has a small wet bag for everyone’s phones etc. Water is provided. The whole thing was just under 6miles (bike plus cave). Both your guides where fab and day was very well organised. Beware of lunch as some options are very spicey! Our tour guide Nim was so good so even took photos for you throughout the day and sent them by WhatsApp later!

  • From Phuket: Snorkeling & Dolphin Spotting in Maiton Island

    10. From Phuket: Snorkeling & Dolphin Spotting in Maiton Island

    Maiton Island is located about nine kilometers off the Southeast Coast of Phuket, known for its untouched natural beauty.

Around 09:00 AM, you will check in at the pier and have some time to enjoy a light breakfast, coffee and tea while listening to the educational preparation of the eco-tourism alert from a tour guide. At 10:00 AM, you will depart for Maiton Island by speedboat with a journey time of around 20 minutes.

At noon, you will enjoy a delicious Thai buffet lunch with dishes such as fried chicken, grilled shrimps, fresh fruit and a variety of desserts afterward. After lunch,...

    We had a super early pick up on the day, 6am, but the ride was pleasant. I think we were the first to arrive at the pier. There was a simple breakfast after registration and an hour's wait for the other arrivals before getting in the boat for a 20 minute ride to Maiton Island. The sea was slightly choppy, we had another 10 min boat ride round to the other side of the island for a spot of snorkelling. Unfortunately the coral was quite tired looking, not colourful anymore. There were other boats too but enough room so it didn't seem crowded. A good spread of lunch and the team was very friendly and hospitable! We had another hour or more of leisure and more snorkelling after lunch. A lovely day out altogether!
