Regular excursions are arranged throughout the week to Koh Rok, Koh Kradan, Koh Haa, Koh Gnai where vast coral reefs with brightly colored fish and sea life can be seen. Koh Muk is renowned for its Emerald cave; a 60 meters long tunnel that runs through a mountain and leads to a lagoon at the bottom of a sheer vertical shaft in the mountain. All island destinations are subject to weather and sea conditions.
