Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your day with a morning pick-up from your Phuket hotel and a transfer to the pier, where you can enjoy tea, coffee and snacks as you await the rest of your group. From there, set sail aboard a speedboat and gaze out across the Andaman Sea as you cruise out around Phang Nga Bay.

Stop to snap photos of the dramatic sea cliffs as you cruise past Koh Panak Island, then continue to Hong Island for a thrilling sea canoeing tour. Accompanied by your guide, paddle your way around the island’s unusual rock formations, limestone caves and hidden lagoons.

Back on the speedboat, it’s time for the day’s star attraction – a cruise around Khao Ping Gan (Leaning Rock), better known as ‘James Bond Island’. Get your camera ready as you spot the famous Ko Tapu, the 66-foot (20-meter) limestone rock that featured as Scaramanga's hideaway in ‘The Man With the Golden Gun’.

Pause for a delicious buffet lunch in the fishing village of Ko Panyi, then take a tour of the traditional island, with its stilted houses and colorful fishing boats.

Stop to take a peek inside the Ice Cream and Diamond caves, en-route to the final stop of the day, Naka Noi island. Enjoy free time to swim and sunbathe on the beach, or try fun activities such as Jet Skiing or banana boating (extra cost), before setting sail back to Phuket.

Finally arrive back at the pier, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Very good day trip
, Dec 2019
Must see trip out of Phuket. Beautiful scenery and the lunch included was fantastic Thai food. Tour guide informative, kayaking was fun and plenty of time at each stop
OK Trip but a bit plain
, Nov 2019
The boat trip was mostly sightseeing such as taking photos but not too much actions. We only did swiming at one island. The hotel pick up took almost 2 hours in the morning. The island tour was a bit more boring comparing to the island trip to Phi Phi island. The tour organizer was trying their best to entertain people by providing view points, water and snacks. James Bond island was indeed rather pretty and worthwhile to see. The toilets on many of these islands were quite dirty. Bring loads of cleaning wipes and tissue paper.

, Nov 2019
This was a family day out & everyone has a great day out.Jimmy was our guide for the day & made sure everyone on the boat where taken care of.The speedboat was immaculately clean & there was enough time given to all the highlighted attractions.Jimmy was there to take pictures or just answer any questions one had Pick up & drop off was efficient Overall would highly recommend for a great day out
Amazing Tour!!
, Jul 2019
Even though the weather didn't cooperate (was in Thailand during off-peak rainy season) - this was still a fantastic tour!! The guys at Sealion (Speedboat company) took very good care of us!! The islands and views are breathtaking. The timing at each stop was just enough - however I wish I had more time at Ko Panyi to explore after lunch (which was delicious by the way)!! My favorite activity by far was canoeing around Hong Island. I definitely plan to book this tour again when I go back!!
Great Experience!
, Jun 2019
Definitely would recommend this tour! Hotel pick up and drop off! Great crew on the speedboat! Perfect amount of time!
Tour Was As Described
, May 2019
This tour went to the places prescribed. The highlight of the tour for use was canoeing at other nearby islands (the canoe guides were excellent as was the scenery). James Bond Island was interesting albeit crowded. The lunch/shopping experience was OK. The boats had dual 150 HP outboard motors that were very loud for those seated in the back (ears were ringing for days); get a seat up front if you can!
Day Trip to James Bond Island
, May 2019
Overall a great experience. The staff was very friendly, and everything was perfectly organized. We had enough time to explore a cave, take pictures of the James Bond island, sail with a canoe, have lunch and enjoy some time on the beach. It was really fun.

This was the highlight tour of our trip to Phuket. The really important thing is that from the time we got to the dock area, until we departed at the end of the day, it really felt like they were doing everything possible to ensure we had a great experience. The focus was on their customers. It started by them having coffee, juice, water and pastries ready and waiting for our arrival. Then all day long they appeared with new cold drinks, fresh fruit, or other snacks. Now the trip itself was also amazing, but there are quite a few companies offering similar trips, the reason to book this one is the personal attention. The boat is also very comfortable, with a max of 23, it means it can move quickly and at each stop you can move on and off quickly, that lets them do a couple more stops than others, which is just one more reason to book this specific tour.

, Jan 2018
The tour was really nice, definitely a great experience and would recommend to anyone in Phuket or around. The downside was the driver who chose to keep us in the care for a total of 4 hours in order to got to Patong and leave and pick-up people there instead of taking a 10 minute detour and leave us first. Very unhappy with that part as we lost almost all day because of it.
