Phang Nga bay trips and bad weather?

We are booked in with Boss to do a trip to Phang Nga tomorrow. We were hoping to ride a long tail boat, do some sea canoing and maybe James Bons Island.

Boss sent me a message last night asking...

"If the weather not good what will you do!"

I was a little confused, it has rained on and off the last two days, not as bad yesterday, some strong winds the day before.

Can anyone advise if the longtail boats and sea canoes run in wet/windy weather?

Thanks

Some bad weather has been forecast for the whole area, but Phangnga Bay tends to be more sheltered than other coastal areas on the Andaman side. A lot really depends on how bad the weather is and whether you want to do a tour in the rain. My suggestion is to reply, or even better call, and ask some direct questions :)

We have done a similar trip with Boss in August 2011. Although the weather was overcast in Khao Lak, the weather was fine in Phang nga. It is difficult to tell until the day.

Best think to do is to contact Boss and see if you can confirm on the day. Usually Boss is very accomodating and will want to do the right thing by you.

I think he is asking do you still want to if the weather is bad in the Bay or reschedule for another day. As suggested give him a call or go and see him in Bang La On.
