Thailand’s extensive but little-known wonderland of rivers, estuaries, islands, caves and white sandy beaches, is surely one of the most magical and mysterious places on earth, and one of the most beautiful. Come and marvel at hundreds of dramatic limestone rock formations that rise like fairy castles from land and sea.
The freedom of our shallow-draft, Luxury River Cruiser allows you to visit parts of Thailand that are inaccessible by larger boats and to venture up-rivers through the mangrove forests into the jungles of Thailand. You will be able to discover rarely visited traditional Fishing Villages, where the lives of the local Thai people have remained almost unchanged for centuries.
Using our specially designed flat-bottomed kayaks, which accompany the “Pitta” cruiser, you can explore sea caves and hidden lagoons within the many Rock Formations rising from the sea. Here you will see many species of rare birds, plants and animals; from white-bellied Sea Eagles, Ospreys and Pacific Reef Egrets to crab eating macaque monkeys and Giant Monitor Lizards.
Each and every one of River Rovers cruises includes a full board service. Whether you choose to embark on the "Pitta" for one day or several days you will be served delicious Thai meals, prepared and cooked on the boat by our master cook 'Luck' or if desired a BBQ on a secluded beach with plenty of fruit, water, soft drinks and beer. We also supply the bananas to feed our friendly, curious and cheeky monkeys. There is snorkeling gear, light fishing tackle and kayaks to use at your leisure or you can simply choose to relax on our roof top and enjoy the sunshine. All you need to bring along are your sunglasses, sun lotions, hats...and of course don't forget your camera!
