About the tour


The only tour where you can visit James Bond Island with no crowds; only with us, you will enjoy a swimming break at a beautiful beach and have lunch at Koh Yao Island.

James Bond Island is a famous landmark in Phang Nga Bay. It first found its way onto the international tourist map through its starring role in the James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water. The bizarre, why-doesn’t-it-fall-over outline of James Bond Island or Koh Tapu (meaning Nail Island in Thai), lies next to the equally well known Koh Ping Ghan (sometime spell ‘Ping Gan’ or ‘Ping Gun’).

The entire area surrounding this island is indeed spectacular, but it can get crowded in the high season.

Weather & Sea Conditions
Between November and January – especially around Christmas and New Years – steady northerly winds regularly create short bumpy waves, which can make parts of the boat rides uncomfortable. Although this does not affect the safety of the boat rides, we cannot guarantee enjoyable boat rides to every individual on every given day. We experienced a wide range of individual guest reactions to these conditions. As the Family Tour and Koh Kam tour do not require the speedboat to leave sheltered waters at any time, this does apply to all tours except Family Tour and Koh Kam tours.
From February on weather and sea conditions are usually very calm and comfortable.

We reserve the right to change or adjust the itinerary of the tour if necessary due to weather changes or any other unforeseen circumstances.

Medical Advice
Individuals with the following medical conditions are excluded from this speedboat tour:
• Back Issues
• Heart Issues & Diseases
• Pregnancy
• Epilepsy

Please be advised that this is a safety regulation by the Thai Department for National Parks and there is no insurance cover for individuals with these conditions whatsoever on speedboat tours!

Cancellation Policy
Until 24 h before tour departure, you can cancel your tour anytime via email or phone call. If you do not have any communication devices, please ask your hotel reception to call us.
