What To Expect

Developed by the godfather of sea kayaking, John Gray, the Hong by Starlight tour was originally created as a way to avoid crowds. Now, this unique trip is so much more than that. You will get to see stunning views from the sea, discover unique marine geography, sea rare wildlife and more! The best part? This renowned tour lets you see Phang Nga Bay both by day and night. Begin with a convenient hotel pick up, then head to Ao Por Pier and board the escort boat. Skipped breakfast? No worries - an exquisite Thai style lunch will be served on board. After lunch, your first island adventure begins as you hop into a custom made kayak and paddle to breathtaking caves and hongs (secluded sea caves). You will then move on to the second island for more cave exploration with your professional guides. Enigmatic hongs are a true sight to behold - so take your time to admire them. At 6:00pm, relax over a fresh Thai seafood buffet and capture a colorful sunset over Phang Nga Bay.

    The Koh hong tour by starlight was excellent. The tour is well planned executed quite well. The staff are in general very friendly and the guide was very funny and very talkative. Just a little too much talking for my personal taste..but that's just me. The canoeing and kayaking was great fun. The meal served onboard was quite good. You stay on the boat for about 8 hours so if you get motion sickness easily...I advise you to look for a different kind of tour. Our boat engine broke down and we had to board another tour boat that was already quite full. Overall I enjoyed my on water tour very much.

    Smooth cruising on a big boat , very comfortable ride. Staff and crew are all humorous people who made our trip fun! Food on board was very delicious. Not to mention every part of the activities were amazing. Not unforgettable is the luminous plankton when you touch the water the plankton becomes luminous. Cool! Must go amd really highlt recommended. Worth every dollar spent.

    Kayak rides into the caves were exciting and relaxing. Even managed to catch mini rainbows on pictures! (though we didn't managed to see it in real life)
  • Patricia 28 Sep 2018
    This trip was amazing and well worth every penny! We had plenty of space on the boat to stretch our legs and lounge. The boat was clean, safe, and the ride was smooth. I sometimes get motion sickness, but I had no problems on this trip. Everything from pickup, boat ride, kayak tour, meals, lantern activity, and dropoff went smoothly. Our guide, picked randomly, was very knowledgeable with the various wildlife and rock formations and a very experienced rower. The meals were made fresh in the kitchen below deck, and coolers, dry bags, and water were provided. We highly recommend this trip to everyone!

    Such an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! Highly recommended it was the best out of all the other tours we've done. The team was super friendly, funny, knowledgeable, artistic and accomodating. My 7yo son Tyrese (Ty) has not stopped telling everyone we meet they should go on this tour and he want to work with Musa :) Thank you so much for a day we will definitely remember and will talk about for a long time to come.

    Enjoyed the tour very much with the professional guides & well planned itinerary. Everyone was very knowledgeable & our Kayak guide “BUS” was very entertaining too! Not only he kept us safe, he also shared good information re the various highlights. We learnt a lot with him! Lunch & dinner was very delicious too! Ended the evening floating our own krathong in a pitch dark sea was quite an experience! Definitely would recommend this tour to all tourists!

    You can be assured of a well-coordinated tour and dedicated crew (the one assigned to us from pick up to canoe guide to drop off has been with the company for 20 years of its 29 years of operations) to deliver a memorable and smooth experience. While most guests who booked the tour were staying in hotels in, we arrived in Phuket on a cruise for less than day. So this tour can definitely fit cruise goers so long as the itinerary fits your cruise’s schedule. From being attentive to our safety with a detailed briefing to whipping a simple by authentic lunch and hearty dinner, we enjoyed every moment of it, not forgetting the breathtaking views of the Phang Nga Bay and its islands. Last but not least, the tour concluded the tour with a dreamy release of the water lantern which we had a hand in making. Thank you for everything!

    Read wonderful reviews on tripadvisor and decided to book the day tour through klook. The trip was incredible. Hotel pickup was on time and our personal guide pao was very knowledgeble and make sure we had a very comfortable time during the trip. My favourite was making of the krathong and the plankton sighting right after sunset. The day itinerary was well planned out with breaks in between and the meals were also non-spicy eater friendly.
  • SOPHIA 23 Aug 2018
    It was so much fun. The guides were really helpful and friendly. They really care for our safety too. The food was great. The activities are fun and not time consuming. We were given enough time to swim and did the canoeing by ourselves. The tour itself was not crowded with too many participants. But, that could be because we went during the low season. My favourite part would be the floating of the Krathong and witnessing the luminous plankton inside the cave chamber. It was really calming. Overall, would do it again.
