My partner and I had an amazing time sea kayaking with Mr A. He was a great guide, very informative and took a great selection of group photos. I highly recommend booking a sea kayak tour with this company. Unfortunately the Hong Island part of our booking got cancelled due to small group numbers which is understandable. The staff kindly refunded us on the day but I was a little frustrated that we only found out after completing the first part of the day. Despite this, I would say it was one of the highlights of our trip. We saw so much nature (birds, monkeys) and the landscape is so beautiful!

I picked this tour because it offered the Hong Island optional add-on. We enjoyed kayaking in the morning, and the relaxed pace of Hong Island. I was initially concerned it would be 8 hours or Kayaking, which fortunately wasn’t the case. I think the tour description can provide more details, and the tour company didn’t really respond to my questions either. I would recommend this tour, but next time I will probably pay a little extra to make it a private tour since some time was wasted in the morning to pick up (and wait for other guests who were late).

Awesome experience, Hong island and lagoon is beautiful, natural trial was calm and informative, top view was stunning, kayaking in the mangroves was extremely peaceful, pleasant and beautiful, we got a rain at the end which was an awesome experience. Our guide A was always caring and helpful

This was my third activity through Get Your Guide and all of them have been awesome! Our guide was fantastic and knew the best ways to go. Beautiful and relaxing way to spend a morning.

Trip was amazing. We paddled down the river before entering the mangroves. Challenging at times but well worth it. Our guide was great and really helpful.
