Plunge into the legendary beauty of Phang Nga Bay deep within the Marine National Park, famous for its remarkable unique seascape of emerald waters sprinkled with sheer limestone karst formations, hidden caves, tropical lagoons, and lush mangrove forests.
Just picture it – a leisurely day cruising through the dramatic scenery, occasionally stopping to enjoy deserted beaches and deep green waters, whilst egrets, sea eagles and Brahminy kites soar overhead. Protected from both the Northeast and the Southwest monsoon seasons the sea is calm all year-round, ideal for swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking.
John Gray’s Sea Canoe Tours
To fully appreciate the scenery and have an amazing experience you need to explore the sea caves and tropical lagoons hidden within the limestone karsts, and to do this you need to be in a kayak. An eco-friendly and peaceful alternative to boats with noisy engines you can choose to self-paddle or sit back and enjoy the scenery whilst the guide does all the hard work for you.
John Gray’s tours are ASEAN’s best sea kayaking company, they are also the first to explore inside the caves by canoe back in 1989, their tours are not just about fun, they also care about the environment and aim to create a top-quality learning eco-friendly adventure for everyone. Expert guides, most of them local to the area, can tell you everything about the history of the bay, its wildlife and the ecosystem of these unique sites.
They run several tours around the bay, here we have highlighted some of the favourites.
