Full description
About half way along the coast between Than Bok Khorani and Krabi town is a bay of mangroves that is one of the most beautiful in Thailand. Arrive at the private pier and depart to the mangrove forest area. Here, bays and canyons are like passageways. This recently discovered area is a superb setting for having an encounter with an ecosystem unlike others. This bay is known for its rich fauna. Certainly a highlight of this setting is the narrow channels which are passable during all but extremely low tide periods. Several species of Kingfishers, Little Herons and Crab-Eating Macaques are almost guaranteed sightings in the remains of a jewel of a destination, undeveloped and without being horrendously crowed. Option with Hong Island Visit: Hong Island stands out as the most beautiful island of the Andaman cost. As you approach from the sea, the towering limestone formation & crystal clear water inspires images of the deserted. In the middle of this beautiful island there lies a hidden lagoon spot for local fisherman and also one place where bird nests are collected. The coral reefs here are amazing and siphons can also be found. Option with Sunset and BBQ Dinner: Your final destination on the tour will be Laem Jamoog Kway. Here you can shower off the salt water in the natural spring waters cascading down from the cliff. Take a short climb to witness the best sunset in Thailand. Relax and enjoy the sunset while you wait for your BBQ being prepared at the beach. After finishing your BBQ dinner, you may continue to relax as a Longtail Boat takes you back to the Sea Kayak Pier under a blanket.

Definitely do! Driving through the mangroves was an absolute dream! The area is beautiful and you also meet one or the other animal. Kayaking through the mangroves was exciting but not difficult. Our guide was very nice (!!!), knew a lot to tell and took very good care of us. In contrast to the other groups, who came towards us from time to time, we were alone with our guide. We were allowed to swim in a beautiful, hidden bay. After the tour we got a lot of great photos he took during the tour and even a edited video. Unreservedly recommended!!

Absolutely the best day we’ve spent in Thailand (Phuket and Krabi) so far! Really friendly and helpful staff. Pick up on time in Aonang for the 30min drive to Ao Thalane. I recommend the 8 hour option because the tide varies day by day, with highest tide at full moon, and the main mangroves are only accessible by kayak at high tides. So if you have the Hong island trip as well, the tour guides will switch the itinerary to give you kayaking either in the morning or afternoon depending on tide. Hong island is gorgeous, with a natural lagoon in the centre. You pass several other islands on the way there and back, so lots of photo ops with the ‘long tail boats’ passing. There’s a fairly tough climb to a high lookout point, but also great snorkeling and a nature trail through the island. The kayaking takes you through sea water canyons between high rock formations, and through mangroves with birds, insects and monitor lizards. The sea kayaks are safe but a little uncomfortable, I found.
