This is an absolutely beautiful part of the world . Ferries pick up passengers here, there are tiny little cafes and the scenery is stunning! The mangroves and rock formations can be seen by kayaking in a group, or if you are confident, they can be visited alone. Hire includes water, fruit & life vests. A beautiful place to just... More

I have been to Krabi 5 times and kayaking in Ao Thalane is definitely the best thing that I have ever done in Krabi. It's less touristic than other places in Krabi and the landscape is super amazing. Doing kayak here is also very relaxing cause there are not much current. I saw beautiful mangrove, lagoon, canyon and luckily monitor... More

The full day group tour we took included kayaking, lunch and swimming. This was easily the highlight of our trip here in Krabi during our 4 day stay. The kayaking tour across the valley and mangrove forest was breathtaking. My wife and I were not new to kayaking and found the ~6km trail not too challenging. We did still break... More

Scenery:5/5 Kayaking through mangrove trees and old caves while water is dripping on you, with rocks and mountains surrounding the area, it provides a very relaxing vibe and a feast to eyes. Physical Requirement:2/5 (or 0/5) No worries if you haven't done kayaking before, it is easy to get a hold of it with a just few instructions from the... More

Ao Thalane is a beautiful place and famous place for kayaking adventure! I love kayaking through the towering cliffs, lagoon and caves and mangrove forest. Several times, we found monkeys and some other species. Happy every time when I visit this place!

Took the half day trip to do kayakking at Ao Thalane. First timers need not worry as you are given plenty of instructions beforehand. The sea remained calm despite the rain towards the end of our tour. With interesting rock formations and features and mangrove swamps, Ao Thalane is simply beautiful. We clocked in about two hours of kayak time... More

If you go to Krabi you MUST go to Ao Thalane for Kayaking!!! There are many tours that go to Ao Thalane for Kayaking that will meet you at your hotel or close by for about 1,000 baht per person. I hired a car and drove there, and just rented a kayak for 700 baht. The experience and the views... More
