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.

4. Krabi: Private 4-Island Sunset Tour with Dinner

You will be picked up at midday directly from your hotel lobby before heading to the starting point at Nopparat Thara Pier in Ao Nang. From there you'll depart on a premium speed boat and cruise to the famous 4 Islands Archipelago. The first stop will be at Ko Tup, an offshore island with panoramic views of the Krabi coastline as its backdrop. At low tide, a sandbar emerges linking Tup Island with Chicken Island as well as the smaller Mor Island. This unique occurrence is commonly referred to as Talay Waek, meaning "divided sea". You'll cruise slowly past Koh Kai, which got its name from a bizarre rock formation resembling the head of a chicken. Escape reality and leave the crowds behind with a stop at Koh Ya Wa Sam, where hordes of visitors are replaced by serenity and relaxation. This secret island is the ideal snorkeling spot, complete with a beautiful coral reef and colorful fish. On the way to Poda Island you will have the opportunity to snorkel in deep water around Koh Tan Ming Island, a small rocky outcrop just in front of Koh Poda.

Covered with palm and pine trees and almost entirely encircled by a soft white sand beach, it is a stunning tropical getaway. The last stop will be to the Phra Nang Cave Beach, which is complete with powdery sand and crystal clear waters. It is ranked among Asia's top ten beaches and offers spectacular limestone cliffs with staggering stalagmites and stalactites.

Before the sun sets you'll feast on a romantic Thai-style BBQ dinner on the beach whilst watching the spectacular amber sky over the ocean horizon. You'll enjoy this unique moment before heading back to the pier, from where the driver will bring you back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Ko Poda

We booked the early Bird Tour. We had a lovely and delicious little breakfast at tup Island and watched the sunrise. It was very quiet and relaxing as all the other boats start their tours much later. Since we went by longtailboat we could go to places were speedboats could not go. We did some nice snorkeling and saw many colourful fish. Afterwards we went to the beautiful beach at poda island, went swimming and enjoyed the view with a fresh coconut. The guides Mr. Handsome and May were very nice and friendly people, that made the trip something very special. They took many pictures for us which was also very nice. The last stop was railay beach where we only spent like 20 minutes, which was perfect because it is a very crowded place. The boat was very relaxing because there were cozy mats and beanbags were we could chill. Overall the tour was perfect and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for quiet and relaxing time without all the stressful touristgroups!

Our guides were fantastic (Mr Handsome and Mai). We had a lovely day and they took us to many places before all the other tourists arrived so it felt very private and natural.
