Krabi: Private Luxury Long Tail Boat to the 4 Islands

1. Krabi: Private Luxury Long Tail Boat to the 4 Islands

Choose from either the Early Bird Tour which departs at 5:30 AM, or the Afternoon Sunset Tour which departs at 12:30 PM.  For the Early Bird option, escape the crowds of tourists and discover the beautiful 4 Islands with no one around. Catch sight of the spectacular sunrise while you set sail to the first destination, Phra Nang Beach. Phra Nang Beach is next to Railay Beach and commands an enviable location on the tip of the bay looking out on the emerald expanse of the Andaman Sea. Discover Phra Nang Cave, which has a spirit house dedicated to the goddess of the Andaman Sea. The wooden spirit house is worshiped by the local fisherman community and offerings of wooden phallic symbols or lingams are placed throughout the cave. At your next stop, enjoy the opportunity to snorkel in crystal clear water and maybe also witness the amazing 'Talae Waek', or 'parting sea'. At low tide, a long sandbar will emerge connecting Ko Tup to Chicken Island and Ko Mor, which allows you to walk from one island to another. In front of Chicken Island, see an island with a unique rock formation that looks like a chicken's head. Explore the area with the snorkeling equipment provided and find many tropical fish. Next, hop back on your luxury long tail boat and head towards Ko Poda, a paradise island with powder white sand and crystal clear turquoise water where you will see many sergeant and piper fish. In front of the island, you will also see the iconic limestone formation which stands tall in the middle of the ocean and offers a great photo opportunity. After this great escape to paradise, head back to Ao Nang where you will be transferred back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Ko Poda

We were picked up from our hotel on time and taken to the boat's drop-off point. Our guide explained the details of our island tour in good English and we had enough free time on the four islands to swim / snorkel, take photos and lie in the sun. The lunch, which was included in the price, was plentiful and good; this was served before the longer bathing stay on the last of the four islands. However, it should be noted that the fee for the visit to the national park (400, - Bath per person) has to be paid separately before starting the boat trip. Overall, it was a nice and interesting day that we really enjoyed. We can recommend this activity with a clear conscience.

Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.

The incredible tour ... the spectacular beaches and the wonderful sunset ... the only thing the plankton if you do not go under the water from outside is not seen.

I highly recommend this tour, you can see a little bit of everything in the Krabi region. Great for all ages.

experience was fun. tour guide Max from PhiPhi tours is very accommodating! i really enjoyed the trip.
