Highlights
  • Use of snorkel gear, stand-up paddleboards, and kayak for your convenience 
  • No need to worry about dinner plans—a Thai-inspired buffet is provided 
  • Get out after dark to experience the bioluminescent water near Pranang Beach
What to expect
Meet a driver at a central location in Ao Nang or Railay, and then transfer to a long-tail boat that will bring you to the traditional, Thai wooden junk sailboat. Find a comfortable place on deck as the crew raises the sails, or head to the onboard bar to purchase a beer or cocktail. You’ll cruise by a series of five islands off the Railay coast, including Koh Poda, Koh Gai, Koh Si, Ko Yawasam, and Ta Ming. Since the boat is stocked with snorkeling gear, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards, there’s plenty of opportunity to get active at each stop, or you can just enjoy the views from the deck. A Thai-inspired buffet dinner (with vegetarian options) will be served as the sun sets over the Andaman Sea. When darkness falls, your captain drops anchor off Pranang Beach for a swim in the water—your final stop of the evening.

I joined the sunset cruise in my first week on Railay Bay and liked it so much I
hired this awesome Siamese Junk for 32 friends for my Birthday, I can highly recommend this amazing trip, everyone had a great time snorkelling in the bays just off the islands paddle-boarding canoeing and enjoying the cocktails (thanks to Lann) and Dinner at sunset was amazing.
The Crew (led by Carlotta) are awesome and very good at helping you enjoy this experience can't wait to return.

This cruise is most definitely one of the best I've experienced in a long time. The crew were all extremely friendly and orgqnised and were more than happy to join in the activities with all passengers, they were happy to do backflips off the roof (more like encouraged people to try) and help people with paddleboarding and kayaking... We saw some great sights, even got to go exploring a tiny little hidden cave on one of the islands. The food provided was delicious and fresh, and after an incredible sunset viewed from the roof there was night snorkeling where you got to swim with bioluminescent plankton, which was an experience of a lifetime. You won't regret this trip!

My husband and I went on this sunset cruise a few years ago but I wanted to mention how absolutely beautiful and fun it was! Our crew was fantastic! They offered very affordable drinks on board, and the food was seven better than expected for a situation like this. They were super friendly and helpful. We loved the activities offered, and when husband accidentally scraped his leg on a reef, they offered assistance and took care of it,

Highly recommend!

Dear H6802EGrebeccam, It really means a lot that you reviewed us now, as we have been unable to run any trip since March this year. So hearing some positive reviews is great. We are so happy that you enjoyed the trip with us and we hope you can return again in the future. Kind regards Michael

We had the the most fantastic time on this Sunset cruise with owner Michael and his awesome crew. The snorkeling was fabulous and back flipping off the roof of the boat was great. The buffet dinner was delicious and varied. The beer was cold and the cocktails refreshing. Lying on the roof listening to tunes and watching the sunset over the water was the highlight of our time in Krabi.I highly recommend this company an this cruise.

Krabi Sunset Cruises was extremely well organized. Their instructions were very clear to get to the pick up point, everything was perfectly coordinated, and it was obvious the crew worked great as a team.

They bent over backwards to get people (including those that couldn't swim) snorkeling, and the water toys were fun (I used the paddleboard), and several other people used the kayak.

The scenery was spectacular, and the sunset gorgeous. The dinner was delicious & there were options for vegetarians. The Australian captain & Thai assistant made it a point to circulate amongst the passengers & chat them up. They were very focused on safety, and the boat was uncrowded.

We highly recommend Krabi Sunset Cruises!

If you do one trip while in Thailand this is the one to do. So much fun to see the islands from their magnificent boat with totally awesome crew. Going Snorkelling , paddle boarding, kayaks or just enjoying chilling on the boat it really is such a great day out whatever your age .

The entire day is just amazing which ends with incredible sunset and then off for a moonlight swim with in the bioluminescent which just ends this perfect magical trip off

Food is amazing and the crew can't do enough for you, I just can't recommend this trip highly enough its fabulous

After reading plenty of great reviews I booked the sunset cruise for my partner and I to do on one of our last days in thailand and to celebrate his birthday. From the minute you set off Michael and the crew are very welcoming and friendly chatting to everyone. There was a variety of groups and ages when we were there and everyone seemed to feel very relaxed and enjoying themselves. We spent the day in the water snorkelling, swimming, admiring the coves and beautiful views. My partner and I are comfortable in the water so were able to go off independently but thought it was excellent how the staff encouraged those who weren't and guided them round on safety rings to ensure anyone who wanted to, no matter their swimming ability, got to have the same experience. It is good to point out that there were also many people that spent most of the day on the boat and seemed to also have an excellent time. All equipment is provided, food was great- highly recommend and as my partner said, what a better way to spend his birthday than enjoying a beer watching the sun set.

A great trip. Highly recommended.
The host, Carlotta, the crew, the boat and the food were excellent.
The crew were very helpful and have a great sense of humour.
No rushing around. 1hour at each of 4 locations.
Canoeing, paddle boarding and snorkeling, all included.
As are soft drinks, water and a great evening meal.
Beer and cocktails also available for sale.
The boat is in great condition and well equipped.
Just remember.....
The crew can not predict the weather, visibility under water or the quality of sunset. Just relax, enjoy the atmosphere and fresh sea air 😁😎

Myself and my brother first joined a Krabi Sunset Cruise in the fall of 2018. We had so much fun that when we returned to Thailand a little over a year later in January 2020 we had to go again. We have been on a lot of excursions throughout the world and this is by far our favorite. This is a great group tour with a group of friends and also equally as good for solo travelers. You are free to do any activity you want on the boat such as snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding or just taking in the sights and all the equipment is provided. They even let you jump off the roof of the boat into the ocean--which is a blast! They will take you to the best non-crowded locations based on current water and weather conditions. Both of the times we went on the cruise we went to different locations which was really neat! Mike and Charlie who were in charge of the cruise both times we went are awesome people. They are very friendly, care about your safety and are down to earth fun people. A highlight of the trip is the delicious buffet and a surprise bioluminescent swim at the end of the trip at night, which is very cool! We also just liked chillin on the boat and laying up on the roof when we were cruising around the islands. This is a must do tour, and it is a great deal. We can't wait to return again. Thanks Mike and Charlie, see you guys again soon!

We've been on the Krabi Sunset Cruise many times and it is always a fabulous experience! Perfect mix of relaxation and fun!!! The staff and crew do such a good job taking care of everyone, keeping everyone safe and providing wonderful experiences. There's never a shortage of drinks, snacks or fruit and the sunset dinner is delicious! We ended the evening swimming with plankton. A magical day!
