I'm planning on visiting Ao Nang early next year. I just have a question regarding long tail boat transportation to the various nearby islands. Currently, I would like to visit the following:
Koh Poda, Chicken Island, and Tup Island. It seems like there are many tours known as the "4 Island Tour", which includes the mentioned islands as well as Phra Nang Cave.
And the Hong Islands. Preferably, I would like to avoid tours and hire a long tail boat myself. However, I have a few questions regarding this:
- Do they include snorkeling equipment?
- How long do we have the boat service?
- Is it possible to have random people join us, if it means it will get us a cheaper rate?
In general, I'm not sure how long tail boats work, so any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
