Enjoy a full or half-day kayaking excursion on Ao Thalane Bay in Krabi, Thailand

Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd., a company specializing in luxury vacation villas, offers a full or half-day kayaking excursion to Ao Thalane Bay in Krabi, Thailand. Ao Thalane is one of the many undeveloped areas in Krabi offering an opportunity for tranquility and relaxation that is unparalleled.

Located approximately 20 kilometers from Krabi Town, Ao Thalane is a coastal area ringed by dense jungle forests, caves and steep limestone cliffs (karsts). It has some of the most beautiful mangrove forests in the country.

The area is perfect for kayaking with its numerous inlets, meandering channels, hidden lagoons and cliff caves. Tourists will see an abundance of wildlife, which can include several species of monkeys (who sometimes come along for the kayak ride), herons, kingfisher birds, and more.

The excursion is a soft adventure, meaning it is perfect for beginners and families with children. Before the actual excursion begins, guests receive a short lesson in how to use the equipment from an experienced English-speaking tour guide.
