Longtail boat Charter to the Hong Islands

Hong Island - Krabi Island Hopping Longtail boat charter to Hong Island - Krabi - Thailand

The Hong group of Islands are the slightly less famous cousins of the  famous 4 Island group.

A little further up the coast and a little further away from busy Aonang, the group of Isands around Hong Island are just that little bit quieter but no less beautiful.

Hong Island itself has a laggon actually cut into the center of the Island with steep cliff walls reaching up all around creating a quite magical effect.

For those looking to take the time to really explore the Island, there are kayak's for private rental on the Island.

The kayaks are two/three seat kayaks and are available on most days for 500thb per kayak. Please let us know in advance and we can reserve them for you.

A private longtail boat is a great way to explore this group of Islands. The boat drivers know all the hidden away beaches and the best places for a deep water snorkel.

The other Islands in the group are smaller but an amazing place to just cruise around and admire the scenerey.

Pakbia Island is one of these and has been dubbed Paradise Island (this is not a traditional name and I think was actually dreamt up by one of the local tour companies, but, it sort of works, so its stuck.) This island has a rocky area in the beach shallows which is perfect for snorkelling. Even for young kids, this is a great palce to get a glimpse of the underwater world and learn to snorkel. Even without snorkelling though, you can just stand in the shallows and be surrounded by fish.

 

Lading Island is famous for its caves where Bird's Nest soup nests are found. It also has a very small beach and some amazing rock formations and caves.

A few of these Islands are inhabited by the local sea gypsies, and fishermen who camp on the beach and move from place to place.

You might also want to stop at Daeng Island. Daeng means red in thai, and you'll see why it is called this. As long as the water is not too rough, although there is no beach at this Island, there is a rocky reef around it which is a great place to snorkel off the boat and perhaps see some bigger fish and other sea life.

Although the group trips are a little bit cheaper, with a private charter, you get to enjoy more time actually on the Islands and can usually find an isolated spot of beach to really give yourself that castaway feel.

For groups of 4 or more, it can actually be quite economical.

Although we have pricing below for the most popular trips to the Hong Islands, we can tailor any trip to suit your requirements.

We include a large cooler box of ice with drinking water, but you are free to fill it with any other drinks you would like.

A standard packed, thai fried rice lunch can be provided for 100thb per person, or there is a delicious chicken and rice with holy basil dish with a an egg on top. Both can be made non-spicey on request. Fresh seasonal fruit, like watermelon and/or pineapple will also be included.

Halal and vegetarian options are also available.
