Ao Thalane, Krabi Town

4.4
#7 of 10 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 Nong Thale vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • Early in the morning we rushed on a bike to Ao Thalane. We met half way through the pouring rain, but did snag present travelers?! Wearing raincoats and forward to the dream! On the coast turned agency that rents out kayaks. Price independent swim-500 baht per person, but restrictions and on time, and on the route. We paid for 1000 baht per person. to us accompanied by a guide-instructor. The duration of the race more than 3:00. We issued life jackets. bottles with water, waterproof rucksacks. Instructor picked us oars and showed our kayak. We have paddled it synchronously, then the fool opposite rocky coastline with mangroves. What a stunning Andaman Sea here! The downpour started again, but he only added the thrills! Instructor pointed out the direction of the secluded natural Bay Phu Tara to take cover from rain and swim)). There we met a group of tourists who purchased tour in another agency. Not becoming wait others. We buried here: instructor and we, each in his Kayak. Steep rocks, protruding straight out of the water, loomed above us. Just think, these rocks more than 300 million years! They were formed of seashells and coral that lived at the bottom of the ocean. Over time, the water level has dropped considerably, soft water, dilute the rocks on the shores of the Gulf of Finland was formed many bays, lagoons and caves. Our breathtaking journey. continues ... Through pristine mangrove forest area where the birds-kingfishers sing their song, Ocean krabiki float on their cases, and the little monkey curiously examines us uninvited guests of the "lost world". Kayaking in the Gulf Thalane Bey left an indelible mark in our minds and hearts!
