Private pick up from your hotel to Ao Thalane Pier. Then you will be transferred by long-tailed boat from the pier to Hong Island. The journey takes about 45 minutes but you will absolutely forget the time once the boat left from the pier. The scenery around Hong Island is very nice with different rock formations. When you arrive at the island then it’s time to paddle the kayak around the island or if you think the paddling is too hard, you may also relax on the beach, feed the fish or swim in the clear water of the Andaman Sea.
Koh Hong is also called Koh Lao Billeh. This island’s shape is like a half-circle. You will enjoy the spectacular views of the sea and the surrounding islands when you paddle the kayak. There are lots of shallow coral reefs and a breathtaking lagoon (the symbol of the island) to see. Lunch will be served in the restaurant at Ao Thalane. In the afternoon, we will explore Ao Thalane, surrounded by towering karsts formation and lovely offshore islands, complex channels, a bay, and a canyon-like passageway. Recently, this place has been discovered that it is superb for having a first-time encounter with the ecosystem. Certainly, a highlight of the trip is the narrow channels cut through two towering cliffs. Several species of Kingfishers, little Herons, and Crab-Eating Macaques are almost guaranteed to be seen in this area. Ao Thalane has not yet officially been designated as a national park but it may soon become one. Then we paddle back to Ao Thalane Pier, get a change, and go back to the hotel to relax.
