Renting a kayak from Railay Beach is rather easy and inexpensive. No need to shop for the best rate because all of them charge the same price. Renting is by the hour and the more hours you rent your kayak for, the cheaper it is. For two hours it cost us 300 baht (US$9.00). Because we rent the kayak from our own resort, they let us add the cost to our room tab. Ask for a waterproof storage bag for the items you plan to take along with you. You will need it because it gets pretty wet onto the kayak.

We enjoyed kayaking around Railay. There are many beaches to just stop off at and enjoy. Lots to explore right near the coast. I wouldn't try kayaking to Chicken or Poda Islands, it's a bit far. Even by long tail boat, it takes some time to reach them. They appear not to be that far but they are.

Equipment: SUNSCREEN is a must. The sun is intense and if you hop into the water, you don't feel the heat of the sun.

Take bottled water and some fruit. We did and after an hour of kayaking, we were thirsty and a bit hungry.
