Travel to Hong Island by long tail boat

Travel to Hong Island by long tail boat

Last week I had the opportunity to travel to Hong Island (or Ko Hong) for a bit of light kayaking, snorkeling and heavy duty fun.  We had signed on with Sea Kayak Krabi for their package that included three islands, a great lunch, and a circumnavigation of Hong Island.  All in all it was a lot of fun.  The kayaking did not require any technical skill and was void of any strenous paddling.  It was a pleasurable trip that I would recommend to anyone, including families with children.

Although the trip took place on a holiday, the island was visited by only 30 people while we were there.  Given the size of the beach, you had all the privacy one could desire.  And of course as you can see from the photos, the tropical waters were crystal clear.

Photos taken with a Nikon D700 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8mm zoom lens.
