If you can manage a canoe, a windsurfer or a small sailboat, chances are you're ready for sea kayaking. At Haad Tham Phang you can rent sturdy, hard-to-capsize craft that will give you a good workout, and a chance to see many parts of the island just as they appeared to the first fisherfolk centuries ago. There are sea caves to poke into, and some long overhangs where terns and swiflets nest just overhead, and plenty of sea life visible in the clear water beneath you.
Do wear a life preserver, and bear in mind that it's easy to go farther than you mean to with the wind behind you. Ask for advice where you rent the kayak before you try anything ambitious.
