Hidden Treasures of Chalong Bay

About this tour

While leaving the beach or jetty, depending on the tide, we'll follow along the path of the Mangroves, experiencing its wonderfully unique ecosystem, while watching the birds trail behind our boat. Soon we will reach the Mudong Floating Sea Gypsy Village, here you will see the gypsy’s at work, feeding their fish on their private fish farms while preparing their longtail boats for the days fishing in Ao Chalong.

Take a trip down the forgotten waterways of Phuket, offering undisturbed mangrove forests and dotted with small fishing villages along the way.

We then move on and follow the special bamboo sticks, which were placed here by the local fishermen, to form the channel which takes us into the river. Once we’ve entered the river, you will have a chance to observe the local villages and longtail boats, with many Thai people waving enthusiastically as we pass gently by. The villagers are always surprised to see us, as rarely any tourists find their way here. With only a maximum of 10 guests on board we can stop anywhere you like. It’s up to you, there is no strict itinerary.

Our next stop takes us to see the Monkeys, swinging from tree to tree and generally having mischievous fun. They know we have fruit for them and are all lined up waiting patiently. If you wish, you can take our kayaks and paddle up to the monkeys and take pleasure in feeding these curious friends with fruit supplied by River Rovers. You can then paddle on through the mangrove forest and see what else you may find of interest.

Next we will take you to a few of our secluded local islands, where you can swim from the boat along the way, enjoy some snorkeling or even a little fishing of your own. These beautiful islands have white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and with not a tourist in sight. You can relax on the boat, the beach or in the warm crystal clear shallow waters, great for the kids and elderly.

Delicious food is served at anytime during the cruise and anywhere you choose to eat; whether on the boat or if preferred, a private BBQ on one of the secluded beaches. It’s all up to you!

Recommended as a 1 Day Cruise but can easily be increased to a 2 Day Cruise

Private Boat Tours pricing policy

Each boat trip has its minimum cost. This includes: charter fee, fuel, water, fruit and drinks and the wages for the crew. This value is divided equally by the number of guests. Therefore, the best prices for Eco Tours in Thailand are achievable when the number of visitors reaches 8 to 10 people. However, the minimum cost of the tour is greatly enhanced for couples, lovers and small groups of travelers. RiverRovers eliminates this disadvantage and makes Private Boat Tours on Phuket more accessible. We use an individual approach to pricing and apply different pricing policy for small groups of travelers or newlyweds who are willing to spend their honeymoon with us.
