  • From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    1. 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.

A highly recommended tour from start to finish! Both the route through the jungle, the stay at the resort and the safari on the lake will be an unforgettable experience. Everything is super well organized. It far exceeded our expectations, it is one of those places that you must know in your life, yes or yes. My only recommendation to enjoy the experience well is to be aware that the route through the jungle and the Cave is suitable for people with experience in trekking since it has complicated areas and several sections in which you have to cross areas with water of up to 2 meters deep. We were informed before and we were well equipped and we really enjoyed ourselves. There were people who did not and did not digest it the same way. Suitable clothing: Dry bag or backpack (for diving) Trekking sneakers (for the cave) Quick-drying long trekking pants Quick-drying trekking t-shirt Bring a cooler change of clothing and leave it at the hotel, to change later

a top activity. The visit starts only from 12 noon, but then afterwards you will be amazed. It is really a very nice activity if you want to visit the islands of Thailand and admire breathtaking landscapes. In addition the leaders are adorable and very smiling and even if you do not speak too much English he manages to help you. I really advise it

An exceptional day spent on that tour. Very much enjoyed the mangrove forests and the beautiful uniqe islands on the way to James Bond Island. Also enjoyed the cheerful guide who accompanied us

Great tour to get to know a little "real" Thailand. The bike course is well selected and offers a good mix. The guides pass on a lot of knowledge and make you feel safe at all times.

Very good trip, good staff, good way to discover amazing Phang Nga bay !
