Samet Nangshe Viewpoint & James Bond Island Private Tour

For those seeking an unforgettable and famous adventure, look no further than a private tour to Samet Nangshe Viewpoint & James Bond Island. This experience will provide you with a whole day of enjoying viewpoints, famous islands, floating restaurants, sightseeing and even sea canoeing into caves.

This is part of our new and exclusive collection of luxury day tours which has been carefully put together by our experienced crew and captains at 5 Star Marine. Start your private day trip off with a spot of sightseeing and cave exploration at Panak Island. You will find yourself beckoned to enter a hidden cave enveloped by lush mangroves, as you gently float inside this secret haven. Afterwards enjoy a serene golden bay, providing a tranquil retreat for your relaxation.

A highlight of this private tour is the visit up to Samet Nangshe Viewpoint, located in Phang Nga Bay. This viewpoint offers a truly stunning panoramic view of Phang Nga Bay’s captivating seascape below, because once you reach the top you will be greeted by unobstructed views of the surrounding limestone karsts, emerald waters and the maze channels of the bay below. A perfect place to stop and appreciate nature, the view and of course take some fantastic photos to cherish for years to come.

Once comfortably back on board your private VIP speedboat, make your way through Phang Nga Bay, with its incredible karst formations creating a visual spectacle that is quite remarkable to see as you glide by. The next stop is none other than James Bond Island, also known as Khao Phing Kan. This iconic island gained international fame as the hideout of Bond’s antagonist, Scaramanga. Although the actual island is a protected marine area, you may still enjoy this renowned sight from the neighbouring Koh Ping Ghan. This island boasts a towering rock that leans dramatically, serving as a picture-perfect backdrop. Additionally, there are small caves waiting to be explored, adding more adventure to your unforgettable experience.

As lunchtime approaches, make a stop at the small island community of Koh Panyee, where you will discover huts, houses, and restaurants ingeniously built on stilts over the water. Immerse yourself in this floating village, where the locals have created a thriving community that embraces their surroundings. While on Koh Panyee, be sure not to miss the chance to witness something truly extraordinary—the island’s floating football pitch.

After getting your fill of delicious Thai food, you can continue on to enjoy some sea canoeing or more cave exploring around Hong Island before making your final stop at Naka Noi to enjoy some swimming, relaxation and beach time – the ideal way to end your picture perfect day!
