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.

Really good trip. We were picked up in a private car and driven out to the excursion. The guide was very good. The trip was wildly beautiful. Afterwards we were again driven to a delicious restaurant where we had a delicious lunch and were driven home afterwards. You really get your money's worth!

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).

We booked the Gabz day tour and I can only recommend it. In the morning the group was quite large and there were also a lot of expanded kayaks on the water - very touristy. In the afternoon, on the other hand, we were alone with the guide and saw even more beautiful places and hardly met anyone else!
