Best Phuket Day Trip – Hong By Starlight
John Grey Sea Canoe Hong By Starlight
In my opinion the best Phuket (Non Diving) day trip is Hong By Starlight by John Grey Sea Canoe.
Phang Nga Bay is a must see for Phuket tourists and one of the best ways to see it is by sea kayak. It’s peaceful, non intrusive, eco-friendly and fun. There are a lot of companies running sea kayaking trips but John Grey’s operation is still the best. It’s the most expensive but this is a case of you get what you pay for.
The trip departs about midday (ish) and returns in the night after dinner on board. You get much more kayaking on this trip and at more places (the cheaper trips often just leave you on a beach in the afternoon) and you also get to see the lagoons at night. The food is excellent and plentiful, the crew are friendly and knowledgeable (Mr John Grey is often on the trips himself).
All in all it’s a five star daytrip.
