What To Expect

This is the tour program that will bring all participants to the true nature and the island within Phang Nga Bay. The interesting place is the Tapu island (JAMES BOND ISLAND) and Panyee island. The Tapu island or “James Bond Island” is the giant standing rock sitting in the middle of the sea in the area of the front bay near the Pingkan mountain. Looking from the far, this rock looks like a giant nail, nailing deep into the seawater. This Tapu island is a very famous tourist spot in Phang Nga. Its beauty brought Hollywood to film their James Bond movie. The Man with the Golden Gun episode here. That is why it got the nickname “James Bond Island”, where draws on several tours. Another tourist spot here is the Panyee island or floating village.

On this island has many houses laying in the sea where has a small land area is used for building the mosque and graveyards. The islanders are mostly Muslim and build their villages here. The frontal area is the Limestone cliff above the sea. The villagers are fishermen who also sell souvenirs and open many restaurants on this island.

This is one of the most famous tourist spots in the world that many tourists come to visit. In addition to the Tapu island and the Panyee island, there are many interesting spots for tourists in Phang Nga Bay such as Maju mountain, grotto, Panag island, Hong island, and Pingkan island. However, the cruise along the Tapu island has been enforcing some restrictions from the official government. They prohibit the tourists to look too closely at the island because the sunk part of this island is very old where eroded for ages. This eroding rock may cause accidents at any point in time.

Fun tour at a good pace

You get to see multiple amazing spots, an action packed tour with moments of relaxation. A good pace. Buffet lunch at Andaman seafood was a nice, but standard Thai buffet. Your guide Mack and his team were very helpful and had good vibes. Would recommend! The canoe around the national park was the highlight for me, many nice photo opportunities and beautiful sights to take in. Guides are kind and helpful and deserve tips. Speedboat wasnu2019t too crowder. Overall, well organised tour.

A wonderful experience

We had a wonderful day on our boat tour to James Bond Island and Phang Nga Island, and also another 3 islands, the weather was really good, our time at James Bond Island was a short time, but we were able to get some lovely photos, we got in a canoe at Phang Nga Bay and went into a cave with our guide leading us, which was an experience on it's own as I had not done that before. We had lunch at Panyee Muteara, which is a floating restaurant on water, which we had a lovely buffet lunch. than a bit further on another island we walked in a cave in the water with our hard hats on, to come out to a big opening in the rocks at the end of the cave walk, it was amazing to see this. Finally we went to our final island and had about an hour there to swim, jetski or relax, which was very nice just to sit and have a cocktail and watch the people in the beach. nThe staff from Crystal Sea Marine (The tour boat company) were fantastic , and did an amazing job with us on the tour, thanks a lot. nI will have these memories for a long time. n

No response

Tried to clarify pick-up time for trip but no response. A real shame. Zero communication from themu2026nnGiven the cost of the trip, the least they could do is respond to a customer query!

James Bond island by long tail boat

Great day out hosted by Happy. Longtail boat was a highlight as well as lunch at the floating village, Monkey Temple and James Bind Island. 30 minute sea canoe experience was awesome!

Fun day out!

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip with our guide 'Happy'! Everything was really well organised. Just be aware if you're staying in Kata/Karon area there is a bit of a drive to this destination. Phi Phi island area is much closer, and is also more targeted towards the ocean experience. This tour wasn't particularly a swimming tour (there is one opportunity to go swimming at James Bond Island) but no one really does. Not really worth taking swimwear etc as not really needed. This tour would be great for people that struggle with sea sickness as it's basically on flat water surrounded by mangroves. If you get a chance also op to do the trip that includes the canoe aspect, it's very safe and no chance of flipping over. The visit to the village on the water and the monkey temple was quite unique. I recommend this for a fun day out! u2600ufe0f

Unforgettable !

A wonderful day of island visits, swimming, canoeing, caving and then arriving at the island where Man with the Golden Gun was filmed. The tour, with Twoseatours, was incredibly well organised and the whole company of passengers got on well together. Great trip, great food and great atmosphere.

Be prepared! 4hrs in van. No water, was told we could purchase at stop. Guide, u0022Happyu0022 was unavailable for questions or guidence at all sites. We got to stops and he told us when to be back and then he disappeared. On the way back from James Bond island, the weather came in and it was raining sideways and the wind blowing. We asked them to put the tarps on the side up and they refused. u0022gonna get wetu0022 was Happy's comment. It was miserable! We skipped the last two stops related to the weather. Friends we were traveling with chose to do this tour with another company. They knew the weather was coming in. That company rearranged so that the kayak/caves could come first. It would have been nice if our company had done that. As that was on my bucket list. We were told we could come back some other time and do the caves. Really? LOL. There are many, many tour groups out there that offer this itinerary. Ones that offer service, and take care of their clients. That is not this one!

It is a long journey with no free time or a good spot for swimming. It is just a sight seeing tour.nThe tour guide was funu2019

Absolutely amazing tour. Would highly recommend the speed boat plus canoe option.

Boat tour from Phuket MarinanWe took the speed boat + canoe option which was a good decision. First of all we visited the caves at Thalu Island and then canoeing at Hong Island. through the limestone caves and mangrove forests. nA delicious lunch on the floating village - Koh Panyee and then to the highlight of James Bond Island - Phang Nga Bay. We finished at a beautiful private island (sorry forgot itu2019s name) before heading back to the marina. Alex, our guide, was fun and friendly. This tour was amazing and had enough time at each stop to admire the beautiful surroundings. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was amazing, the coordination was great, me and my family has a wonderful and fun day!! i totally recommend this tour to anyoneu2026

Perfect trip! Strongly recommend!

The perfect day, Nina the guide was incredible! She kept everyone smiling and happy. The tour ran smoothly and was packed with so much to see. The monkey caves were amazing. The canoeing was brilliant. The canoe guide was taking pictures for us and made my wife a ring out of a leaf in the water. nnJames Bond island was as breath taking as expected. Lots of market stalls, toilets and things to see. nnLunch was great, the floating village lived up to expectations. It was so big, so many smells and more places to spend your baht. nnFinishing up at the private beach for a couple of beers and more relaxing. nnBad points for me were no snorkelling and no mangrove tour. Not sure if Iu2019d read the tour description correctly so couldu2019ve been expecting something that wasnu2019t included. nnOtherwise loads of water, coke and squash! Loads of information along the way. nnI had badly twisted my knee slipping on the tiled floor in the rain at the hotel and I was worried I couldnu2019t do parts of the trip but I was looked after greatly. Probably the hardest thing was getting out of the canoe. nnI could not recommend this enough. Well worth the money. You will see things youu2019ve never seen before and you can count how many times youu2019ll say wow!!!!

By Longtail Boat

We took a long tail boat and it was quite stable. The tour guide was very hard on the boat, so I used a card to indicate that it was cute! The itinerary is very good, the time stop will not be too fast or boring. Canoes are some people helping to plan, you just have to enjoy the scenery, they will help you take pictures!

Boat tour from Phuket

Our tour consisted of speed boat + canoe. My family had a great time on this tour, which included iconic James Bond Island, canoeing at Hong Island, a delicious lunch on the floating village, and lastly a relaxing stop at beautiful Panya Beach. Our teenage son even admitted to having fun! The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. This tour had the right amount of stops and allotted enough time at each one for all of them to be enjoyable. I recommend this tour.

Brilliant trip. Picked up on time and taken to Buddhist Temple and saw the monkeys. Timekeeping is essential as everything is booked in advance and is a popular trip with many agencies. Taken to a lovely lunch by Long Tail Boat and then on to a canoe trip through caves and around rocky island. Beautiful scenery and worth the trip for this alone. Then continued on to the James Bond Island again by the Long Tail Boat. All in all, a lovely day.

Was good

Was good and enjoyed all of the sights but it was hugely cramped it was advertised that it had a max of 30 people in a group and there was 60 in ours!! And sadly our tour guide didnu2019t give us much time to relax and enjoy the views as he was shouting constantly trying to get 60 peopleu2019s attention!!

A terrific place

If you like watching sea, one can spend days on this island. Sea all around Phuket is very good. The island had very different kind of rocks.

Great tour of some beautiful locations

Really memorable and fun tour of many stunningly beautiful locations in Phang Nga Bay. The lunch at the floating village was quite tasty too! Absolutely a great value for the money as well!
