It was my first time kayaking and I loved the scenery of the mangrove area at Thalane. Pity it rained but thankfully it was when we were on our way back to shore. Yo-yo (his glamour name), our guide was pleasant, helpful and informative.

I did the half day mangrove tour at high tide. I am an experienced kayaker. This is awesome and unusual scenery, and because of the high tide we were able to take beautiful routes leading through the canyons and winding through the mangrove. It's the only way you can see this scenery. BUT.... do not do this trip unless you... More

I booked a half day kayaking trip and the experience itself was amazing. We paddled through mangrove forests and limestone cliffs and even spotted some monkeys! The downside was the company as our tour guide never introduced himself, did not explain where we were going and offered no demonstration of how to use the paddle. Life jackets were optional.

we did a sunset kayaking trip with For friends travel and tour. Our guides English was very poor and he couldn't explain what we were doing or seeing very well. The instruction for using a kayak was useless and one kayak got so lost that we missed the sunset. Waste of money.

We bought a package of kayaking + ATV ride from a randomly selected tour agent in Ao Nang. Their kayaking tour was on offer at 500baht for half a day but our full day package was 1400 baht. Like what other tourists had done, we kayak into the mangrove of Ao Thalane. Having read and been taught so much (in... More

We did our trip through a small tour operator in Ao Nang called August Venture Travel, who booked the trip with Kayaking With Friends, but I am sure it will be a very similar trip. We were picked up promptly around 08:30 am and taken to the starting point for our kayak adventure, which was less than 1/2 hour outside... More

It is a change of activity from the beach, but nothing spectacular. We were expecting to kayak leisurely through the mangrove in the shade and see birds and animals, that was not the case. We kayak for 30 minutes in the open before we got to the mangrove, there were so many kayaks from different companies, we felt like we... More
