What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Simba Sea Trips, Thepkasattri Rd Royal Phuket Marina, Koh Kaew, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

Arrive at our office for a briefing while you enjoy some breakfast snacks, tea and coffee to keep you going until breakfast on the beach.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Royal Phuket Marina, 68 Moo 2, Thepkasattri Rd., Koh Kaew, Phuket Town, Phuket 83200 Thailand

Phukets only 5 star marina. Marvel at the beautiful yachts as we embark on our adventure into the Andaman sea.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Koh Panak Cave, Ao Phang Nga National Park Thailand

Koh Phanak

Koh Phanak is often our first stop for some intriguing cave exploration. Like Swiss cheese, Phanak is full of hidden caves, lagoons and hongs. We aim to select the very best location depending on the tide and weather on your day. So fire up your torches and step into a prehistoric world! Sightseeing is a strong suit of this tour since you will have the chance to see exclusive sights that not many people have seen in their lives.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Hong Islands, Nong Thale, Krabi Town 81000 Thailand

Sea Canoeing

Hong island is a stunning location for a scenic canoe trip. It is simply the best way to see these geological wonders up close and personal. Let the Thai guide take you into hongs and caves only accessible by canoe. Cruise the waters on the canoes and marvel the real natural beauty that has formed over hundreds of years, creating an amazing spectacle that will remain forever in your memory.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park Thailand

Arguably the most famous spot in the bay, it's been a Mecca for Thai and Western tourists for over four decades, is the James Bond Island tour stop. You’ve come all this way and as Simba generally arrives well before the masses, we make a quick stop to see what all the fuss is about. This limestone marvel is perfect for you to take pictures.

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Kudu yai island (เกาะกูดูใหญ่), Ko Yao Noi, Ko Yao District, Phang-nga, Thailand

Treasure Island/Secret Hong Swimming

Just a few minutes from James Bond island lays a fantastic hidden cave, only accessible by swimming through a narrow passage. Jump off the front of the boat, swim to the beach. It’s the perfect opportunity to cool off before we move across the bay. This stop is subject to tide conditions and an equally beautiful and quiet beach may be selected where sea or tide conditions allow for a better experience.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Koh Yao Yai Pier, Unnamed Rd, Tambon Ko Yao Yai, Amphoe Ko Yao, Chang Wat Phang-nga 82160, Thailand

As described, a truly unique location, still holding fast to a traditional existence in the face of it’s bustling brother, Phuket. Our tour takes a decidedly ‘terra firma’ turn, as we take a short trip across the south of the island to a stunning local Thai restaurant for a delicious Thai lunch.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Beach Peninsula, Ko Yao Yai, Ko Yao District, Phang-nga 82160, Thailand

The afternoon will take us to any number of beautiful beaches depending on tide and weather conditions. This is a chance to swim, snorkel (if conditions allow), relax, enjoy a light afternoon tea and sample the scenery before heading home. As previously stated, the snorkelling is very much 'introductory' but still great fun for young and old alike.

Duration: 45 minutes

Personally I have no idea. I am not a travel agent, just a tourist, a cruise ship passenger who organized excursions for a group of fellow passengers. Please refer to the local company.
