Full description
Begin your day tour with a hotel pick-up in Khao Lak between 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM, and depart for the river. Hop on a bamboo raft and float along the waters, relax and enjoy the stunningly beautiful rainforest around you as your raft is pulled by a local boatman. Visit a sea turtle conservation center working to save and increase the number of sea turtles in the region. The Royal Thai Navy plays an active role in turtle conservation and baby turtles are brought to the center, where they are nursed for 6-8 months before being released into the sea. Finish the tour with a trip to Ton Pling Waterfall, the most popular waterfall in the area. Experience the lovely atmosphere and marvel at the amazing environment surrounding you. Swim in the small ponds at the waterfall and just enjoy the relaxing ambiance, before being dropped off back at your hotel.

    The hotel pickup was not on time but we were informed that there was a bit of a delay. That was fine. What was wrong was the minivan. The ceiling paneling was completely moldy. That wasn't very inviting. The ride was short. Thank God! First we went to the naval base to see the turtles. The time for this was very short. It gave the impression that we should be carried out quickly. Staying a little longer was not desirable. Pity! The bamboo raft ride was very nice. We could spot some animals. Swimming in the waterfall was ok. It's a mini waterfall and when there are more than 5 people, it's already very crowded. All in all it was ok. The guide was very friendly and took good care of us

    Great trip with Ran! He speaks good English and was very knowledgeable about explaining everything! Especially with the turtles he had a lot of information. The rafting was also really fun, but you really get very wet! Afterwards there was something to drink and some fruit. The waterfall was a cool refreshment at the end of the tour! We weren't quite 4 hours on the road but the perfect length for half a day. We can highly recommend you tour!

    Nok was a very good guide. She explained everything to us in a very understandable English, responded to questions and requests and helped very quickly with a small injury. The driver was also very friendly and considerate. Thank you This tour is highly recommended. The turtles were so cute, the raft ride was really fun and the waterfall invited to swim.
