Phang Nga Bay Junk Cruise

Located northeast of Phuket, Phang Nga Bay is a beautiful location that you can spend hours exploring. While you can take a speedboat and zip around the bay, why not enjoy your time on a traditional Junk?

Take a leisure cruise on the junk and enjoy the scenery with some refreshments before heading out in a canoe to explore the bay's hidden caves and lagoons. You'll also get to visit the famous James Bond Island or "Khao Phing Kan" and the floating village on Koh Panyi. Being a marine protected area, Phang Nga Bay will inspire you with its clean waters, unique flora and fauna, and limestone formation.

Phi Phi Island Cruise

One of the most popular boat tours in Phuket is to the Phi Phi Islands. Comprising of six islands, the two main ones are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Phi Phi Don is the larger, more famous of the two, while Phi Phi Leh is an uninhabited island with stunning beaches and crystal clear waters.

After enjoying the cool ocean breeze on the way here, you can snorkel among the colourful coral and fishes at Phi Phi Leh, and enjoy a Thai lunch at Phi Phi Don.

Trip to Racha Yai Island

Racha Yai is a small island south of Phuket. You have the option of taking a speedboat or long-tail boat to the island. It has several beaches but most boat tours from Phuket will land at the beautiful white beach in the deep, U-shaped Tawan Tok Bay. To the north, there's a similarly long bay called Siam Bay.

On Racha Yai, you can snorkel in the crystal clear waters and even go scuba diving at the nearby dive sites. You can also enjoy delicious seafood or climb up to Koh Racha Viewpoint.

Coral and Maiton Island Tour

Coral and Maiton islands are two stunning islands just southeast of Phuket. Coral Island is the more exciting location that's famous for its watersports activity including banana boat, parasailing, and even snorkelling. Besides watersports, you can take a full boat tour of the island where you'll get to see every corner of the island and learn about it from the sea.

Maiton island is a small, private island with a few accommodations, a quiet, pristine beach, and a dense green hill in its centre. Besides enjoying the sun and swimming in the turquoise waters, you'll get to see dolphins around Maiton Island.
