Freedom Adventures boat trips from Ko Lanta

Posted by Cashewnuttree on 21/7/2010 at 11:26

Freedom Adventures is a small family business offering small group trips on our large and comfortable boat to islands around Ko Lanta. We do 1 day snorkelling trips to Ko Rok and 4 Islands and also overnight camping trips.
Our boat can also be chartered for a special and private day for friends or family.
We are a flexible and relaxing option from the big companies.
Check out our website www.freedom-adventures.net

I notice one of your trips visiting the Emerald Cave on Muk in low season.
That must sometimes be tricky - I was there last month and access to the cave was not possible because a big ocean swell in a blowy monsoon wind period made swimming up the tunnel dangerous.
How do you compensate for such disappointments?

We actually only run our trips in high season, our boat is currently having work done to make it even more comfortable for our guests and to be ready to run trips from October.
But yes as you say for the longtail boats that do operate at this time of year it is not alwasy possible to enter the amazing Emerald cave. The cave is on the west coast ok Ko Mook which is the direction the monsoon winds come. The tide also has to be right to enter the cave.
All guests are advised that the trips are run depending on the weather and ofcourse the customers safety comes first. Even if its nor possible to enter the Emerald cave the other island are beautiful and offer great snorkelling and the beach in ko Ngai is georgeous white sand! Hopefully that is compensation enough.

I'm a bit confused - it was that Oct departure that caused me to write #2 - although I realise you have covered the question in #3.
I do have to say that many people would look at the Emerald Cave as the highlingt of the Trang islands.
