Your local guide will take you out onto the water and show you beautiful things that you might fail to notice if traveling independently. Active and adventurous travelers will love this unusual kayaking tour.

We did this tour because we absolutely wanted to see planktons. We did see it and were delighted about that. But... that was way too overpriced for what it is. Our biggest deception was the guide. His English was very poor and all he was saying was "look" (we almost never knew what to look for) and "give us a good review on Tripadvisor!" (He really insisted on that). We didn't learn anything during the tour and there wasn't much to see in the sea. There was a turtle a some point and the guide started to chase after it, trying to catch/block it to show it to us. I felt bad for the animal. I can't deny the staff were friendly, but the quality of the service wasn't here. Don't expect to be in a small group. There are better tours if you want to see planktons

Dear Cmoikiki, Thanks for taking the time to submit a review for the tour you participated in 9 months ago, back in February. We are glad you were delighted to have the once in a lifetime experience of phosphorescent plankton in a 100% clear kayak and even got to see a sea turtle with our friendly staff! We are sorry you found our activity to be "poor" "overpriced" and that you felt "deceived by the guide". All of our lead guides in February spoke proficient English, though our assistant guides speak basic English, when guests are lagging behind or getting ahead of the group we send assistant guides to cater to them personally, so we apologize for any miscommunication, or if the guide in his enthusiasm to show you a sea turtle (which is a rather rare occurrence,), seemed to be "blocking" it in some way. Miscommunication can and does happen traveling in foreign countries. We always celebrate our staff during monthly meetings by sharing our awesome TripAdvisor reviews. I can only assume the guide in question was under the impression you enjoyed your experience and was hoping to share. Though I can't be sure of exactly what happened on your tour at this late date, I will certainly note your comments. Obviously, a lot has changed in the last 9 months. Due to the Covid-19 Crisis every small business in Railay (and Thailand) is struggling to survive, so guests should certainly expect small groups. We are open and running to the best of our ability in these extremely challenging times. We still believe we offer the best, most unique, plankton experience around and are sorry if we didn't meet your standards in some way. Best wishes and good health to you and your's, The Freebird Team

I had the most amazing experience that will be a treasured memory for a lifetime to come. Staff were informative, friendly and professional the entire time. Due to a rock climbing accident, I wasn't able to make my booking and staff went over and above to reschedule and answer all my questions before hand. The experience itself was out of this world and better than I could have dreamt. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, thank you so much Freebird Paddle Co. and all your team! If I could give 10 stars I would!!!!

I have had the pleasure of not only joining on a guided night tour, but also renting paddleboards during the day. The staff at FreeBird are amazing, always greeting people with a smile. You can tell they love their job and want to make customers happy. The cliffs around Railay are breathtaking, and the best way to experience them is on a paddleboard. It's great that you have the option of renting the boards on your own if you're experienced, or go with a tour if you aren't. The night tour was really fun, we had 2 guides who made the trip exciting and we felt safe the whole time. Watching the sunset from the boat was incredible. The staff are the highlight of the trip, they make the trip safe and fun. I definitely recommend FreeBird when you come to Railay 😊

The staff was entertaining and enthusiastic. We did the clear bottom kayak bioluminescent night tour. If I could do it again, I would definitely do the paddle board night tour instead.

Dear Lindzeeraek, Thanks for taking the time during the Covid-19 Crisis to submit your review for your tour back in November 2019. We are sorry you found your tour to be just "OKAY". But we are glad you enjoyed our entertaining and enthusiastic staff. Hopefully when borders re-open and small businesses like ours are able to get back to some semblance of normal you can come back and try the Paddleboard tour rather than the 100% Clear Kayaks. Best wishes and good health to you and your's, The Freebird Team
