Travel by modern, technologically-advanced Blu Anda Catamaran to the beautiful natural swimming pool within a whole island, Koh Hong. The lagoon is shut off from the rest of the world, except for one narrow opening, and is surrounded by limestone cliffs
Wherever your hotel is on the island of Phuket, you will receive the convenience of being picked up from there to be taken to the Ao Por Grand Marina, on the southern coast of Phuket. Arriving at about 9.00am, you will go through the quick, routine process of registering before enjoying a tasty American breakfast, goodies from the bakery and a variety of beverages.
Depart from Ao Por Grand Marina at 10.00am in a fast and luxurious, technologically-advanced catamaran which will ensure the smoothest of journeys whatever the weather conditions. (The catamaran is particularly friendly to those susceptible to motion sickness!). Because your journey is as important as your destination it is vital that we provide you with the best safety and comfort standards on the Andaman Sea.
Along the way, stop at Pak Bia Island, which is actually a pair of islands connected by a narrow sandy strip that is completely submerged at high tide. There is an enormous number of Clown Fish swimming around a coral reef near the beach. Especially overjoyed to come here will be the kids, as the brightly coloured Clown Fish was made famous in the popular children's film 'Finding Nemo'.
Then, get in touch with the indigenous peoples of Yao Noi Island at a local fishing village. You'll have plenty of time to get into a kayak to venture out for the best views of the fascinating karsts in this area.
Immediately upon arrival at Koh Hong ('hong' means 'room' in Thai) you'll be stunned by the unique, amazing natural beauty that surrounds you. Because here is a large turquoise-blue lagoon with exotic vegetation growing at its sides which is nearly completely surrounded by enormous rocks with breathtakingly sharp looking cliffs. Here you'll feel as through you're in a room, hence the name Hong Island. Take this unique opportunity to swim amongst the lovely fish in a world few know exists.
Unfortunately it will eventually come time to leave Koh Hong, so as you head back to Phuket take advantage of your time on the Blu Anda catamaran to enjoy complimentary snacks, an open-air fresh water shower at the stern of the boat and a lie down as you see the end of the afternoon soon approach.
Once back at the Ao Por Marina, air-conditioned vans will be waiting to take you back to your Phuket hotel.
