Phuket Boat Hire & Koh Rok Thailand Boat Charter
A short cruise south of Koh Haa will bring you to the two islands of Koh Rok Nai and Koh Rok Nok. Both of these islands are uninhabited and boast a wonderful selection of wildlife.
The steep cliffs of Koh Rok Nai rise to 200m in places, and both islands are dense with vegetation providing homes to monitor lizards, birds, butterflies and a wide variety of fauna.
At the water's edge, you will see some of the most beautiful, untouched, long white beaches of Thailand, and the waters surrounding the islands are home to some of the most amazing coral formations in Thailand, where thousands of colourful reef fish dart around from one coral to another.
Special things to do...
These islands are ideally located to form part of a honeymoon cruise, rendezvous diving, snorkelling or swimming. Drop anchor and go ashore to admire the wildlife and sweeping beaches. Send the Captain onshore to camp, while you enjoy a romantic evening under the stars, or plunge into the clear waters, and admire the amazing coral formations and reef life.
