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. ...

Discover the special fossil beach, created from the accumulation of millions of shellfish fossils over 25 million years. Around Ban Laem Pho beach, you can witness the result of this natural phenomenon in a large concrete platform that is one of the world's three shellfish tombs. Then, head through the countryside, past small villages and plantations.

Fantastic! Nas, our guide was very pleasant. Extremely meditative to slide silently across the water when mother nature wakes up. Monkeys, birds and fish. Highly recommended. Turn the jet team into something positive and get up early and do so. Worth every baht. Good breakfast on the bay entirely for ourselves. Don't take the latter tour! Then it is the wrong tide and the bay is full of motor boats and other tourists.
Very nice nice, private excursion along the mangroves. Wildlife as expected; to see less now. At least a large macaque family was observed. Fortunately, they are not fed on this tour! It was also really nice to visit a small farm and stay in my nice guide's home. Here, under guidance, I was allowed to prepare my papaya salad myself. Very fine!
Wonderful day ! To do without hesitation! The mangrove, the calm, the feeling of being alone, then the visit of a coconut farm with its owner, a fan of geese who adore coconuts. To finish the little cooking class and the Thai meal with the guide and his family. extra !!!! We no longer have the impression of being tourists !!
This trip is simply beautiful! Very private. recommendable
Very nice guide and great tour, super beautiful sunrise!
