The Basics

Ko Khao Phing Kan (also known as Khao Phing Kan and, less formally, “James Bond Island”), is part of Ao Phang Nga National Park in Phang Nga Bay. The lush vegetation, turquoise water, and secluded ocean caves make it one of Thailand's top destinations.

Spend a day exploring the area on a boat tour: You can opt to get around in a luxurious speed boat, a traditional junk, or a longtail boat; go canoeing or kayaking around the limestone caves, mangrove forests, and beaches of Thalu Island and Khao Phing Kan; and visit the floating Muslim fishing village of Ko Panyi.

James Bond Island Canoeing 7 Point 5 Island By Speedboat From Phuket
Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful and incredible scenery mixed with outstanding Thai hospitality and a quick, cool speedboat. Couple of tips - don’t wear flip flops, beach shoes are the sound choice and make sure you have a waterproof bag for your smartphone. Bring the bare minimum of gear with you, you just won’t need it. The islands are so stunning, they don’t disappoint. The kayaking will have saying wow repeatedly.

Phuket to James Bond Island Tour Including Sea Canoeing by Speedboat
A great trip overall. Although we did not go to the monkey kingdom as promised above so don't expect that! Also a lot of people crammed on a small speedboat. Other than that it was really enjoyable and the tour guide was very knowledgeable.

James Bond Island by Speedboat
Excellent Full day trip, picked up as promised, all the places as planned, speed boat was superb. Our guide was full of fun and very knowledgeable and the camera man worked so hard capturing our experiences without being intrusive. Lunch in the floating island was way better than expected. Would highly recommend this trip!

Phang Nga Bay Sea Cave Canoeing & James Bond Island w/ Buffet Lunch by Big Boat
Absolutely amazing! Our tour guides were great and our canoe driver was even better. He made sure we had the best experience by getting us extra close to the monkeys and making us gifts from the surrounding nature. Food was also great.

James Bond Island Sea Canoe Tour by Longtail Boat from Phuket with Lunch
A long roadtrip to start and end which would've been nice to know before hand but a terrific tour. Enjoyed the canoes around the islands where the guide was great and the 007 island scene itself is very picturesque. Lunch in the village was okay, but was included so it you can't fault it. Overall it was a worthwhile trip, well organised and not felt rushed.

How to Get There

Due to the protected nature of the national park, visiting the islands independently is nearly impossible unless you have a permit and a private boat. There are, however, a number of tours to the area. Most depart from the marinas in Phuket and Krabi Noi. If you're traveling down from northern Thailand, opt for a tour leaving Phang Nga town.

Marine Life in the Bay

Due to shallow waters, and warm temperatures, and rich nutrients supplied by the nearby rivers and mangrove forests, Phang Nga Bay has abundant marine life. The waters around the islands are home to 26 species of reptiles and 24 species of fish, including butterfly fish, as well as lots of shrimp, crabs, manta rays, and sharks.
