Kayak Koh Panek & James Bond Island

This part of Phang Nga used to be probably the best tropical kayak site in the world.

Kayak Thailand, also good is Koh Lao Liang
Phang Nga has many stunningly beautiful lagoons, "hongs" (see below), sandy beaches, tropical wildlife, coral reefs and Thai fishing villages.

Unfortunately, the part of Phang Nga bay easily accessible from Phukert is these days inundated with hordes of people during high season. It is not uncommon to be sharing a lagoon with a hundred other kayaks.

These parts of Phang Nga bay accessible from Phuket, notably James Bond island and Koh Panek, are no longer enjoyable, as there are too many people swarming everywhere.

We no longer offer a tour here, we reccommend that visitors take the Koh Yao Noi lagoon kayaking trip instead. It takes loonger to get to and is more expensive (as it is a private trip), but offers a much higher quality experience than do James Bond island, Koh Panek and the other overcrowded parts of Phang Nga bay.

"Hong" in Thai means "room". The Phang Nga bay hongs are tidal lagoons surrounded by vertical cliffs up to 300 metres high. The only way in and out is through a tidal "window" - and it is only possible on certain days. On some days these windows are open for only 20 minutes, so we advise taking a guide.

"Window" is the name for a cave that is invisible at high tide due to being underwater. At low tide the "window" cave is dry, exposing sharp rocks and mud and therefore not navigable by kayak. Only when the tide is at a certain level, not high or low, can we enter the "window" cave and enter the hong.
