A full day at sea to kayak and explore the beautiful Panak Island and around. Then move to Hong island to visit the hidden cliff lagoons, which are naturally decorated by many species of trees, animals, limestone peaks and emerald waters. Have fun making your own self-made flower Krathong and savour a sunset dinner on the boat before going kayaking again to watch the Bioluminescent Plankton in the dark sea.
The hidden cliff lagoons, populated by macaques, water monitor lizards, kingfishers, mudskippers, egrets, Sea Eagles and Brahminy kites. The beauty of nature in this spectacular environment will definitely blow your mind, and you will never forget the wonders of this paradise in the Phang Ngai bay.

“It has been a fantastic day of close encounters with wild animals and exploration of dark chambers and silent lagoons where we kayakers were alone in a magical and pristine environment. We met placid macaques, not used to be fed by harassing tourists and therefore quietly minding their own business, weird looking crabs, beautiful eagles; we had fun stretching flat on the canoes, holding our breath every time we approached a cramped entry that seemed impossible to conquer, and where, instead, our experienced paddlers manage to push us in. And, after an exciting day, some simple but delicious local food that we savoured on board the comfy and large boat, lots of sun and wind on our faces, we had a last surprise when we went at sea with the kayak for the last time, in the dark, to observe the bio-luminescent plankton that dots these waters.”
