There are various day trips available from Phuket, with the visit to the James Bond Island being the top of many lists.
Not sure about booking a Phuket day trip? Here is an awesome guide and where and how to book the Phuket tour for you! Firstly, we were collected from our hotel at around 7.
Once we arrived at the pier, we did have to wait around for minutes for the others on our boat to us but the pier was busy with market stalls and Thai locals selling souvenirs and snacks. Around 9am we boarded our boat and headed off whilst sipping on juice drinks and being offered a variety of fruit for breakfast.
We arrived at Panak Island after a short and speedy journey on the boat approx 30 minutes. Here, we went canoeing into the Bat Cave and around the Hong Island; known for its limestone rock. We had an experienced paddler who guided us around the lagoon; whilst Calum enjoyed being rowed around the gentle waters. After spending another 30 minutes or so having lunch, we were then whisked away on a smaller longtail boat to Phuket thailand james bond island the James Bond Island.
We spent around an hour here, Phuket thailand james bond island photographs and exploring the area. The tour group provide you with waterproof bags for you to carry your valuables in which was helpful. After visiting the island, we were then taken back to the boat and headed to Naka Island. Around 2pm we were dropped off at Naka Island to relax and swim for an hour before heading back to the pier. We arrived back at our hotel for around 5pm. Day trips range in price, ours cost us B each and was booked with our hotel company. Check different prices and the weather forecast before booking a trip, we booked ours around 5pm the day before to get the lowest price.
Creative Travel Guide and Viator have partnered up to show you the best tours, worldwide. Book a tour to see James Bond Island with Viator. James Bond island! That must have been so amazing. I love your photos. It was a great day out — full of photo ops. I worried about getting my DSLR camera wet so used a lower quality waterproof camera for some of the images. They make for a very surreal surrounding — great pics! We are going to be in Thailand in December and are considering this for a day trip.
The stunning james bond island – phuket, thailand
Did they offer snorkeling, And if so what did you think of it? If you only had one day in the area is this a tour that you would recommend? Phuket is undeniably beautiful.
I wish I had the chance to visit them while in Thailand. Well, another one to add to the bucket list! I am dying to see the beauty of Phuket in person. Looks like you had a wonderful trip.
I have heard a lot about this island, will definitely go here when I plan my phuket trip. Really enjoyed reading about your adventure. The scenery is amazing and your photos really captured the beauty of the area. Looks like it was a lot of fun as well. Kayaking through the bat cave looks amazing, as long as there are no actual bats there. Maybe next time, I love kayaking so that would be great to do. I have been here a few years ago and it was so much fun. I loved the little beaches around…the water was so clear and pristine.
I also went to Phi Phi …did you visit the island? Was my favourite part of the Thailand trip! Kayaking is so much fun. Great way to see things and still exercise! The pictures are amazing!

I had never heard of this island before but it is definitely on my list now! Only 1 hour in Naka Island? I guess I should make it around there next time.
