I'm back in Los Angeles, missing southern Thailand. My friend and I had such a great time on the 2D/1N Self Paddle. There were many awesome parts to it, but one of my favorites was kayaking around Koh Panak with our guides (Nat and Eak) early in the morning before anyone else was around. We were able to go into all the caves and sit in the peaceful hongs alone with only the cicadas, birds and drip drops of water for company. At one point, Nat and I went through Diamond Cave and sat in the hong without speaking for such a wonderful, long time that I thought I'd get lost in the beauty forever. We just sat and listened to nature. It seemed that Nat was as enamored as I was, as occasionally, our eyes would meet while we silently took it all in. I was softly brought back to reality when Nat whispered, "Tide coming in. We go now."
The Starlight Tour is a fantastic way to spend the day and to see a very special part of southern Thailand, but I recommend going a step further and doing one of the overnight trips (which include the Starlight Tour). You camp right on the beach and everything is set up and prepared for you by your guides. This is also an excellent opportunity to get closer to the real Thailand, as you sit around the fire with locals who are passionate about their country. Their English is great and we even learned a little Thai in the process!
Everyone with John Gray's Sea Canoe is dedicated to both protecting the environment and providing the best experience possible for the visitor. As other posters have mentioned, the food is spectacular, the guides are knowledgeable and devoted and the trip will certainly be in your memories forever.
Don't miss out!
"We both agree that the Expedition Overnighter was the highlight of our
honeymoon. "Phang Nga Bay was everything we expected, and more. We loved it
all--the hongs, the starlight trip, kayaking through the canyons, and the
"Our guide and assistant were fun and extremely nice. We couldn't have asked for a better crew!
Thank you so much. And please pass on our appreciation.
" Mitchell and Jessica
"Thank you for the marvelous impressions from the Phang Nga area, which you showed us in two days. It was really the highlight of the 5 1/2 weeks, we had in Thailand and Bali. My memories are so strong and vivid.Many many thanks from my family and me. We shall never forget our trip."

Expedition Express is the trip for
Phuket-Krabi overnight transits
Folks with hotels already booked
People who want to try one night "on expedition"
Hongs by Day, Hongs by Night, beach camping under the stars, the Krabi
sunrise, and rarely visited exotic limestone islands in the
far reaches of the East Bay - the Expedition Express is a rapid-fire
overview of Phang Nga's World Class Natural Drama.
A Week-End Getaway for regional adventurers, an overnight transfer to Krabi, or a night out of crazy Patong, the Expedition Express packs your brain with a minimum Twenty-Eight Hours of Top Quality Adventure. Guest comments include "My best trip in twenty years in Thailand", "Definitely our Honeymoon Highlight", "Better than Alaska", etc. but don't believe us, just check out our guest comments log.
Dazzle your mind by combining the "Classic Day Trip" or "Hong by Starlight" with guided overnight beach camping in Phang Nga Bay followed the next morning by a Day in the Islands circumnavigation of greater Phang Nga Bay. Packed with exotic Thai marine limestone, both sides of the Bay are completely different. A "Caves and Hongs" theme rules the first day, while the second day is a "Monument Valley sunken in the Sea". One guest called it "Better than an Ice Cream shop - Six Different Flavors Each Day".
Depart you Phuket hotel at 0800 (Classic Day trip) or 1330 (Starlight
trip) on Day One and return to your Phuket or Krabi hotel by 1730 on Day
