What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Freebird Paddle Co., 623/20 Moo 2, Railay Beach, Krabi Town 81000 Thailand

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Experience the magic of bioluminescence on our Sunset Starlight Night Tour. Hi-tech LED lights and naturally occurring plankton illuminate the water below while the sunset and stars work their magic above. Our expertly guided tours are a truly unique, once in a lifetime, adventure.

All ability levels are welcome on our Stand Up Paddleboard Bioluminescent Night Tour. We will spend 15 minutes instructing you on the beach in basic SUP techniques, followed by 15 minutes warming up and practicing in the water. After that, our tour departs along the coastline.

We set off into the sunset and wait for darkness to fall. As the night arrives the Hi-tech LED lights under your board will illuminate the waters below. If we are lucky we'll have silverfish leaping from the water and friendly sea creatures making an appearance. The highlight is jumping in to swim with the bioluminescent plankton the thrive in these waters. The more you move the more the plankton will light up and shimmer all around you, it's truly incredible.


Little Freebirds 4-8 years old are happily welcomed to join our night tours, they must ride with a parent/guardian on the same SUP board or kayak.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to our shop to sign in and prepare yourself for the paddle.

Duration: 3 hours

This was a truly magical experience! And a must- do in Railay. The staff were great and made it so fun. We watched the sunset as we paddleboarded out to sea, we went around the islands and saw the bioluminescent plankton under the full moon and stars. It was my favourite

Hi Nico, Thank you so much for your kind review! We really enjoyed having you and your girlfriend on board with us. There is always a lot of good-natured laughing, especially during the first part of the SUP lesson, sometimes we are laughing so much we fall in too! We've been having some really amazing sunsets, we are really glad you caught one on your tour :). We hope your travels bring you back to Railay one day, we'll be here to welcome you both! Many thanks, The Freebird Crew

Thanks so much David! Lum had a blast with you guys (he's totally amazing). You'll have to make your way back to our little island in the sun one day - hopefully with a dash more sun next time! All our best, and many thanks, The Freebird Crew

Lam and the team at Firebird are great. We took five kids on four paddleboards - into a brewing storm in East Railay (as the west side was too rough). Everyone had a ball. Saw the plankton. And just loved Lam’s positivity and humor. Thanks. Dan (Big Fish)
