Recommend by local Patong travel agent that this was a must do when in Phuket did this with 2 mates. Weather was fantastic and places visited were all interesting. Guide/paddlers were good. Food was good; included fish and chicken and lots of fruit. Would recommend.

Just had an amazing experience paddling through caves to find beautiful lagoons. Some of the highlights was the bat cave at night. Food was amazing and the crew were helpful, knowledgeable and fun. I would recommend this tour to everyone

Happy you enjoyed the trip and Wish I could have been there, but I'm nursing an injury. Next time you might consider an overnp beach camping, bungalows or even luxury resorts.
