Ao Thalane, Krabi Town

4.4
#6 of 11 in Beaches in Krabi Town
Kayak through the rich mangrove channels of Ao Thalane. Something of a hidden gem, the bay is home to a small fishing village and a diverse ecosystem of undisturbed animal and plant life. The best way to explore the area is by kayak tour; guides will take you through the calm waters at a slow, comfortable pace. Along the way you'll paddle by scenic coastline, sea caves, limestone canyons, and perhaps even encounter some of the local gibbons. Most tours include food and water, but confirm before you head out. Take the guesswork out of planning a Krabi Town vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Visited this Bay kayaking excursion. Very nice, full immersion in nature. Very easy to sail kayak even unprepared and nesportivnomu. One of the best excursions around Aonang.

  • I booked this tour of your home, what was in hindsight superfluous. There is a wide range of tours in Krabi and certainly also in the tourist resorts at each corner and in the hotels. The taxi on time pick me in the hotel. The ride from Krabi to AO Thalane over an hour, what is also because the taxi even at many hotels to pick up new people. We are instructed in the use of the kayaks in AO Thalane; the tour is suitable for paddling beginners. There are actually no kayaks and sit-on-the-top kayaks, which are easy to drive and very stable on the water. However, low tide there is on us. Therefore you should plan (if you're flexible: first look in the tidal calendar) as far as possible be sure that no tide is, because the streams in the mangrove forest at low tide are not all accessible. Therefore, we can make a round trip, but exit into the Canyon and on the same way again. The landscape is here nice and impressive. The dense mangrove forest in the narrow gorges looks great. Supposedly, you can sometimes have contact with the monkey; We however see any; for a small monitor in the water and many colorful (!) small crabs. After a beautiful two hour tour, the tour ends with a rich lunch (with breaks and a very nice guide) (for everyone a soup and three dishes, soft drink and dessert). At the pier, there are, by the way several providers (at least four have seen).

  • Our guide Mr. A. was really at the top. Security, explanations throughout the walk in the mangroves and the sea. With everything but a little physical activity what you eat that's good... we pagai during 2: 00 - 2:30, we sometimes also boat when we can't control the technique always or when the place becomes technical. Loved our teenagers of 13 and 17 years, we have seen monkeys and enjoyed the tranquility of the mangroves. A stop bathing was also planned, with the monkeys not far away. Lunch was top with 4 meals different (spicy soup, omelet, chicken fri sweet and sour chicken with cashews), drinks at the choice and fruit (watermelon and pineapple) for dessert. Great morning! Thank you Mr.A.
