Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your day with a morning pick-up from your Phuket hotel and a transfer to the pier, where you can enjoy tea, coffee and snacks as you await the rest of your group. From there, set sail aboard a speedboat and gaze out across the Andaman Sea as you cruise out around Phang Nga Bay.

Stop to snap photos of the dramatic sea cliffs as you cruise past Koh Panak Island, then continue to Hong Island for a thrilling sea canoeing tour. Accompanied by your guide, paddle your way around the island’s unusual rock formations, limestone caves and hidden lagoons.

Back on the speedboat, it’s time for the day’s star attraction – a cruise around Khao Ping Gan (Leaning Rock), better known as ‘James Bond Island’. Get your camera ready as you spot the famous Ko Tapu, the 66-foot (20-meter) limestone rock that featured as Scaramanga's hideaway in ‘The Man With the Golden Gun’.

Pause for a delicious buffet lunch in the fishing village of Ko Panyi, then take a tour of the traditional island, with its stilted houses and colorful fishing boats.

Stop to take a peek inside the Ice Cream and Diamond caves, en-route to the final stop of the day, Naka Noi island. Enjoy free time to swim and sunbathe on the beach, or try fun activities such as Jet Skiing or banana boating (extra cost), before setting sail back to Phuket.

Finally arrive back at the pier, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Excellent experience
Arnaud_S

Awesome experience with the BB sea lion team. It was not our first trip to James Bond Island but would definitely be rated among the best. Pickup was on time, the tram very reactive beforehand (there was an hotel confusion when booking the trip, they replied and fixed within 15 min) and the team themselves were really great, clearly sparing no efforts. Special kuddos on behalf of our 6 years old who simply wanted to join the crew once the trip was over…

Wonderful Day Out

Fantastic speedboat day out to James Bond Island and seeing as well as surrounding Islands in Phuket: * Phang Nga Bay * Koh Panak Cave * Hong Islands * Khao Phing Kan * Ko Panyi * Ice Cream Cave Our Guide BB and his crewmen were very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and provided us with plenty of refreshments and a wonderful lunch. I think the only improvement we could suggest is having the option for people who would like to do the canoeing by themselves to be offered as in our group two of the people would have loved to try, maybe they could offer a quick demonstration and allow people to choose whether they would like to do it themselves or let the guide do it for them.

OK Trip but a bit plain
Lei_W
, Nov 2019
The boat trip was mostly sightseeing such as taking photos but not too much actions. We only did swiming at one island. The hotel pick up took almost 2 hours in the morning. The island tour was a bit more boring comparing to the island trip to Phi Phi island. The tour organizer was trying their best to entertain people by providing view points, water and snacks. James Bond island was indeed rather pretty and worthwhile to see. The toilets on many of these islands were quite dirty. Bring loads of cleaning wipes and tissue paper.

Amazing Tour!!

Even though the weather didn't cooperate (was in Thailand during off-peak rainy season) - this was still a fantastic tour!! The guys at Sealion (Speedboat company) took very good care of us!! The islands and views are breathtaking. The timing at each stop was just enough - however I wish I had more time at Ko Panyi to explore after lunch (which was delicious by the way)!! My favorite activity by far was canoeing around Hong Island. I definitely plan to book this tour again when I go back!!

Tour Was As Described
Stanley_O
, May 2019
This tour went to the places prescribed. The highlight of the tour for use was canoeing at other nearby islands (the canoe guides were excellent as was the scenery). James Bond Island was interesting albeit crowded. The lunch/shopping experience was OK. The boats had dual 150 HP outboard motors that were very loud for those seated in the back (ears were ringing for days); get a seat up front if you can!

Overall a great experience. The staff was very friendly, and everything was perfectly organized. We had enough time to explore a cave, take pictures of the James Bond island, sail with a canoe, have lunch and enjoy some time on the beach. It was really fun.
