  • From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    9. From Phuket: James Bond Island Excursion by Longtail Boat

    First, you will get picked up from your hotel. Start this full-day tour visiting the famous Monkey Cave of Wat Suwan Kuha. Discover the many interconnected caves in the mountain and admire the gold reclining Buddha image at the temple. Explore the magical mangrove forest of Ao Phang Nga National Park by long-tail boat. Stop at a fishing village on Pan Yee Island to enjoy a tasty lunch before seeing James Bond Island, where the blockbuster movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed. Continue to Khao Phing Kan to see the stunning limestone karst formations. Experience the area’s beauty by sea canoe, paddling around Talu Island before returning to the pier. To ensure your safety, your expert guide will paddle the canoe for you, as the waters in this area can be difficult for paddling. 

    This experience was amazing and I’d definitely recommend to anyone. Our tour guide was lovely and always willing to take pictures for you and even recommended the best spots to take these. One of the best moments of this trip had to be kayaking through the caves - an unforgettable experience and our kayak guide took some brilliant photos for us. The only downside for us was the length of the transfer in order to board the boat which was around 3 hours each way - however for the experience it’s 100% worth it.

    The description mentions you will go in a cave but doesn’t mention you will be wading in water potentially up to neck height. The trek through the cave it almost 1km also. It was great fun! But something to consider. Where footwear you don’t mind getting wet and don’t take a big bag as the tour guide only has a small wet bag for everyone’s phones etc. Water is provided. The whole thing was just under 6miles (bike plus cave). Both your guides where fab and day was very well organised. Beware of lunch as some options are very spicey! Our tour guide Nim was so good so even took photos for you throughout the day and sent them by WhatsApp later!
