Full description

Explore the Hong Islands on a traditional longtail boat on this day trip from Krabi. Snorkel, swim and relax as you pass through lush landscapes. Be in awe of the region with a stop for panoramic views.

Start your day trip with a hotel pickup service in Krabi in the morning. Undergo a short health check-up by the crew at Nopparat Thara Pier in Ao Nang or at Hin Pheng Pier in Klong Muang depending on the sea conditions.

Hop aboard a traditional longtail boat with your fellow explorers and head over to the Hong Islands. Make a short stopover at Koh Daeng for open sea snorkeling in clear waters and a coral reef. Then spend the day leisurely exploring the main island, Koh Hong. See mangrove trees, wild birds, giant lizards, incredible rock formations, and beaches. Relax on the sundeck and soak up the scenery or jump from the boat into the refreshing waters of a hidden lagoon.

Stop for a highlight of your trip, scenic panoramas from a viewpoint. Gaze at the limestone islands of the Andaman Sea and snorkel in the cool turquoise waters and spot a wide array of colorful fish and other marine animals.

Enjoy a delicious, freshly made Thai-style boxed picnic lunch directly at the beach before being brought back to the pier and to your hotel.

We spend a great day on the boat, totally worth the money. We had a good lunch and some time for snorkelling. This one could have been a little longer, but I’m not complaining at all. We had a good amount of freetime and didn’t feel rushed by our guides. Overall a great day!

Loved it! The tour guides were so friendly and allowed us time to relax and enjoy at each place rather than feeling rushed. Lunch was satisfactory but nothing beats the beautiful views of Hong Island so in my opinion this was worth the day trip excursion (plus additional bonus: you get to come back to your hotel at a reasonable hour). Only negative I would like to mention is that the driver left us in the morning when he came to pick us up. Our hotel staff called us to tell us that he arrived but by the time we got down he had already left so we ended up having to take a tuk tuk taxi to the pier. Other than that, it was a good experience!

Hong Islands is great and worth the trip - the view point is a real highlight so don't miss it. I'd have liked to go kayaking but I didn't see there was an option to so missed out on it on the trip. The only thing I would say is that halfway through the trip a storm came in and (excuse the pun) but put a real damper on the day - especially for worrying about getting home safely. The sea got extremely rough and I was worried about trying to get back. Weather changes aren't anyones fault but given that I saw it on the weather report the day and raised it with the company you'd think they would also see this as an important factor of whether to take the day ahead or not. Luckily we were in a longtail which moves slow and steadily across the water even when its choppy. The food wasn't as great as I've had on other day trips.
