What a fun night activity! We met in Railay Beach after Suzanne helped us review our options for getting to this side of Krabi from Ao Nang beach, and was very helpful and thorough explaining our options. I opted for the stand up paddleboarding (SUP) experience but the activity could have been done with a clear kayak just as well. The guides led us at an easy and relaxed pace. We walked to the launching spot on the East Side of the island as sun set, so I would have put on a little more bugspray for the beginning of the excursion. Our guide instructed us on how to maneuver the paddleboard effectively using good English! She was very nice and pleasant and kept checking in on us throughout the tour. At first, as the sky darkened, we turned on lights that illuminated the bottom of our boards. It was really pretty and cool, but not what we were expecting. THEN, we got to turn them off and experience the bioluminescence! The plankton that caused the shimmery underwater effect could be seen afterall. We got to swim around a little in the dark and activate the bioluminescent effect with our bodies. There were fish that could be seen swimming around our boards when the lights were turned on. I enjoyed being able to be out on the water at night, the air was cool but not freezing, and the waves were calm so beginners could still enjoy the ride without getting stuck behind. It was a very cool experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The guides are trustworthy and safe. The staff was accommodating and friendly. Very fun, and operated well with COVID-19 restrictions being followed appropriately.

This is one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I did the clear kayak and the paddle board (both at night) and would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone staying in Railay! The guides are super knowledgeable and funny (thank you Mr. Bean and Mr. Sam!) and they make the trip even more amazing. Railay is breathtaking to see on the ocean at night. We paddled through a cave, saw jellyfish and other wildlife, and even swam with the bioluminescent plankton! Absolute 10/10

Lam was the best tour guide! His personality is extremely welcoming and funny. After arriving on Railay Beach, I did some research on what tours were available during “covid times”, and found gofreebird on Instagram. They responded within minutes, and helped me plan not 1 but 2 adventures! The evening clear kayak tour was breathtaking, you’ll never find a better sunset than sitting in the middle of the ocean looking at the beach.

We went on the sunset/night time clear kayak tour to see the bioluminescent plankton. The shop was closed that day but they came out just for us! Tee and Golf were great guides and were very patient with us. They even hitched up my friends' kayaks to their paddle boards when they ran out of energy. Swimming with the plankton was incredible! Like lots of tiny stars in the sea, and all the real stars up above us. There honestly weren't many fish to see through the bottom of the kayak but the plankton more than made up for it. Wonderful experience, definitely recommended!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this awesome review! We are so glad that you loved your experience with us and that Tee and Golf made the night so much fun!! We hope we see you again soon, every tour is different, and if we hit a school of fish they may be raining down on you so we might be able to make up the difference in the fish department ;). All our best wishes and many many thanks for joining us, The Freebird Team
