4 Islands Tour by Longtail boat start at 8.30 am enjoying white sand beaches in Poda Island and Tup Island where you will have time for relax and swimming, snorkelling in Yawasam Island, discovery Railay with his stunning cliffs and help Krabi region with Coral Propagation Experience.

Corals are relatively simple colonial organisms, with thrive when their environment is stable and favorables. Unfortunately , human activity has changed that environment greatly in recent times, and it has been the indisputable cause for the loss of over 50% of all coral life worldwide over the past 30 years. Thanks to the constant advances in science and research , our knowledge or coral biology and reproduction has increased exponentially over the past few years, and has allowed us to develop techniques to increase the growth rate of coral colonies, while at the same time increasing its resilience to external destructive pressures. The core concept of the coral propagation techniques is micro fragmentation : small pieces of coral are glued to a substrate, allowing for the development of the new colonies at a much faster speed compared to natural propagation.

While the science behind this method can be complex, its practical application is fairly simple and can be done by almost anyone, regardless of prior knowledge , skills of physical prowess. The majority of the experience takes part on board a boat or in the beach, and customers who wish to take part in the snorkelling can do so at their discretion . The materials that we use are complete eco-friendly and we don’t cause any unnecessary extra damage on the existing reef while harvesting our fragments. These two key points are what sets our method apart from the vast majority of other coral propagation programs around the world. Our same methodology is currently being used in a large number of reef restoration programs world-wide , as well as in some high profile projects such as Maya Bay restoration effort on Koh Phi Phi.
