I can't remember whether an earlier message from you said you were going before Tigerline kicks in. If so, Ngai or Muk are best choices. Muk has the most contrast to Kradan.
If after Tigerline has started, Ko Libong is another alternative. Real nice island with minimal tourist impact - I think all 3 resorts (Libong Beach, Le Dugon, Nature Resort) have kayaks - Nature has a rep for higher prices than the others.
Libong is a bit of a hassle if Tigerline is not running - you will have to go back to Trang and out to Hat Yao pier.
Laoliang is next stop after Hat Yao pier on Tigerline (although you can spend some time at the pier swapping Tigerline boats if one is not on time) and has good snorkelling, great nature, climbing, kayaks - no walks.
Big hassle to reach from Kradan if Tigerline aint running.
If you are heading back towards Krabi, Ko Jum is a nice possibility.
the Tigerline ferry starts on Dec 1st this year, and we plan to go in November.
