If you’ve already visited the Phi Phi Islands and want to explore further afield, join us on this full-day trip to Phang Nga Bay. Unlike the crystal clear waters of Phi Phi, the bay is fed by several rivers that give it a contrasting colour and make it ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Our speedboat tour from Phuket includes a visit to the cave of Panak Island and the legendary James Bond Island where “The Man with the Golden Gun” was filmed. After lunch in the “Floating Muslim Village” of Panyee Island, you’ll have time to paddle around the mangrove-lined lagoon of Hong Island.
Led by an experienced guide, this boat tour from Phuket is ideal for travellers who’ve already ticked the Phi Phi Islands off their list and want to discover what else Thailand’s spectacular Andaman coast has to offer.

After being picked up from your Phuket hotel by minivan between 07:00 and 08:00, you’ll be transported to the Royal Phuket Marina Pier where light refreshments will be served. You’ll be introduced to your guide for the day and receive a short briefing about what you can expect during this Phang Nga Bay island tour.
By speedboat, you’ll travel through the island-dotted waters of Phang Nga Bay en route to Panak Island, which is famed for its bat-filled cave and idyllic lagoon. We’ll continue to the spectacular karst limestone towers of Khao Phing Kan and Khao Ta Pu, more commonly known as James Bond Island. It was here that the 1974 spy film “The Man with the Golden Gun” was shot, with Roger Moore starring as the iconic MI6 agent.
After exploring the island’s bird-filled mangrove swamps and some of the ancient paintings that decorate its karst formations, we’ll visit Puddle Rock before a delicious buffet lunch on Panyee Island. With your stomach full, jump aboard a kayak or canoe to slowly paddle through the mangrove forest of Hong Island whose turquoise lagoon is fringed by a white, sandy beach.
Before your speedboat tour of Phang Nga Bay comes to end, you’ll have time snorkel around beautiful Khai Island or spend time relaxing on its idyllic beach. You’ll arrive back at the Royal Phuket Marina Pier around 17:00 and be transported safely back to your hotel.
