Royal Phuket Marina
Phukets only 5 star marina. Marvel at the beautiful yachts as we embark on our adventure into the Andaman sea.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Koh Panak Cave
Koh Phanak

Koh Phanak is often our first stop for some intriguing cave exploration. Like Swiss cheese, Phanak is full of hidden caves, lagoons and hongs. We aim to select the very best location depending on the tide and weather on your day. So fire up your torches and step into a prehistoric world! Sightseeing is a strong suit of this tour since you will have the chance to see exclusive sights that not many people have seen in their lives.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Hong Islands
Sea Canoeing

Hong island is a stunning location for a scenic canoe trip. It is simply the best way to see these geological wonders up close and personal. Let the Thai guide take you into hongs and caves only accessible by canoe. Cruise the waters on the canoes and marvel the real natural beauty that has formed over hundreds of years, creating an amazing spectacle that will remain forever in your memory.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

James Bond Island
Arguably the most famous spot in the bay, it's been a Mecca for Thai and Western tourists for over four decades, is the James Bond Island tour stop. You’ve come all this way and as Simba generally arrives well before the masses, we make a quick stop to see what all the fuss is about. This limestone marvel is perfect for you to take pictures.

25 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Treasure Island/Secret Hong Swimming

Just a few minutes from James Bond island lays a fantastic hidden cave, only accessible by swimming through a narrow passage. Jump off the front of the boat, swim to the beach. It’s the perfect opportunity to cool off before we move across the bay. This stop is subject to tide conditions and an equally beautiful and quiet beach may be selected where sea or tide conditions allow for a better experience.

The Phang Nga Bay and beyond tour is a must do tour during your stay in Phuket.

We got there early in the morning before all the crowds. We were the first group at all the main stops, which made it a very magical and peaceful expierence. Nothing felt like a busy tourist attraction. There was no one else at James Bond island and no waiting in a queue for a photo. It felt like unspoilt Thailand. One of the highlights for me was the beyond part, visiting Ko Yao Noi, which is somewhere I've never been before. None of the other Phang Nga bay tours venture this far East. We had lunch on this beautiful quite island as well as exploring. Our guide Harry had lots of interesting facts to share about the island.

This is truly a unique tour that really does beat the crowds.
If you’re after an adventure this is the tour for you!

This was our second trip booked with Simba and it was another fantastic day on the water! Marina, boat and facilities were all clean and our safety as the first priority. Jane is a wonderful tour guide, she’s extremely knowledgeable about the history of Phang Nga bay as well as each island’s occupants. From someone who suffers sea sickness the calm oceans in the bay was never a worry and with a busy schedule you’re never stopped bobbing in the ocean.
James Bond Island was an incredible sight, canoeing and swimming through caves and hongs felt like we were in our own adventure movie (think Indians Jones!).
Lunch stop was good variety of Thai food and included a truck ride around the local island.
We’ve done Phi Phi and Phang Nga, both were incredible and have their own sights and styles so it’s well worth doing them both if you can fit them in to your vacation.
Congratulations to Paul and the team at Simba for running a fabulous tour company.
Amazing scenery. Great company. A lovely day out for the whole family

A Great tour. Good value for money. 5 stops: canoes, secluded beach swimming, mangrove cave, James bond island and ocean fish farm. You get to see it all. The kids had a blast too. Very knowledgeable kind and professional staff, very punctual , very good service over all.
The boat is fast and perfectly sized. The sea is calm also during the rainy season. We enjoyed the trip immensely.
Excellent experience

The trip was very well curated and organised. The crew was friendly and made all the effort to make it special for me and my family. It was min number of people which was excellent as we could enjoy without too much noise and the crew could give special attention to all of us. Highly recommended
First Class Trip

I loved this trip from beginning to end! There were 5 great activities and the trip felt like a steel. Everything about the trip was first class. Our guide Jane and the rest of the crew took excellent care of us. Jane even helped our with problems completely outside the scope of the trip!
