Mangrove Fishing & Relaxing Adventure
The Khao Lak mangroves provide a sheltered nursery for all kinds of marine life. Local people have be living and surviving in the mangroves here for many generations. Many of the local people here are descended from the sea gypsies who once roamed all over South East Asia and living from the sea. So they know the best spots!

We take our long-tail boat out from our small hidden pier and take you to some of the best fishing locations in the mangroves. Here we can spend a few hours fishing and relaxing amongst beautiful surroundings.

Once we fancy a break our captain and crew will prepare a delicious local style fisherman's lunch for everyone to enjoy together. After lunch we have a few options to choose from... do you want to fish some more? Or relax on a beautiful, quiet beach? Or swim in a beautiful lagoon? Or even try some kayaking?

This trip is all about relaxing and having a good time. It can be personalized and tailored to suit everyone and anyone.
