Paddle with a maximum of six people to one guide on a small-group day trip designed for novices or those who wish to experience the bay without the crowds. Learn about the area's diverse ecosystems as you get an up-close encounter with nature and kayak through canyons, caves, and lagoons. You'll see indigenous birds and monkeys.

Get picked up by our friendly driver and take a 20 minute scenic drive through rural villages to the incredible, karst-dotted Thalane Bay, situated in the north of Krabi. After arriving at the kayaking center with a private pier, enjoy a coffee while your guide will prepare the equipment and study the tide tables. Get a short briefing on how to use the paddles before boarding the open kayaks. Start paddling a short distance through open water from the launching point to the mangroves forest of Ao Thalane. The guide will lead you through shallow channels and over submerged roots. Spot cliffs with supposedly thousand year old historical paintings done by sea gypsies who once lived in these area. At times, stop paddling and just listen. Silence, except for occasional sound of cicadas and rustling of leaves overhead. The aerial roots of the mangroves at Ao Thalane are home to many crustaceans which attract many game fish like snappers in these waters. You can also spot several species of birds and monkeys, in particular the crab-eating macaque monkey. Some parts of the journey requires you to negotiate sharp turns in tight spaces as you wave your way through the forest. Therefore, this tour is specially designed making it semi-private, a maximum of 10 people to one guide. Enjoy the undeveloped environment without unpleasant crowds. At midday enjoy a delicious Thai style lunch to recharge your batteries for the next adventure. Continue paddling and enter the canyons of Ao Thalane, right next to almost vertical limestone cliffs, towering above you. Enter a large cave with stalagmites and stalactites which was named the Crocodile Cave, probably because some of the hanging stalactites may look like a crocodile to those with a bit of imagination. Leave the cave, and continue through a lagoon on your way out from the forest. Surrounded by the limestone karsts, this spectacular seascape at this part of Ao Thalane is the filming location for many movies. The total paddle time is around 3 hours, not including breaks.

Our guide was very experienced and super service minded person. The tour attendees were just 2 (us), so it was a very private tour. The guide took our pictures and videos for us, and we could feel and enjoy the nature without worries of missing-a-moment-for-pictures and dropping-cellphones-into-the-sea. His explanation about the nature, the culture and the history of this area were worth listening. I really recommend this tour.
Excellent kayak adventure!

My sister and I booked the half day starting at 0900. We were picked up from our hostel, which was very nice of them to accommodate us for that. You are brought directly to the launch site and provided with coffee, water and dry bag rentals. The guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. The equipment was well maintained, everyone was professional and the sights/views were second to none. A delicious lunch is included and following the conclusion of the meal you are brought straight back to your hotel (unless you booked the full day). I can’t recommend this day trip enough. Thank you Sea Kayak Krabi!
