Having read a couple of the Bond related posts on GSTF I was inspired to go and check out some Bond scenery. It took the form of Kayaking around a number of islands off the coast of Phucket, all around Phang Nga Bay here in Thailand.
Here you will find ‘James Bond’ island. This was featured in the film ‘The man with the Golden Gun’ and is a really great site with photographic opportunities every where you turn.
I have to admit that whilst everyone else was happy photographing it I was the one who had to swim out to it to really make sure that Mr Scaramanga wasn’t lurking around the back somewhere with his little henchman ‘Nik Nak’.
I also checked for a villain with a white cat.
After taking a boat from Phucket out to the islands we then decanted into Kayaks.
We then paddled around for the entire day taking in island after island. As well as being great exercise its also a good, relaxed way to spot the wildlife in the area. At any point we felt like we’d put on the snorkeling gear and watch the fish swimming in and out of the coral and plant life and were also treated to Dolphins tearing around and about for half and hour or so.
Have you ever been Kayaking?
Do share any tales you might have.
