Is it safe to go to Freedom Beach from Patong in a long tail boat in October?
Sometimes it is.
When you see whitecaps, I wouldn't try it though.
There are good and bad longtail boat operators out there.
We went in a longtail boat to Freedom beach in July.
Just use your own judgement.
As fiddledude said,don't go if you can see whitecaps.
Thanx.Last time I was there it was November.Just a little unsure of conditions in October.Have seen photos of Freedom Beach and told to go in a longtail boat.Looks beautiful!
Has anyone been on this trip and who would be a good operator to book with?
No need to book. Longtail boats are at the very southern end of Patong Beach. Just walk down to where you see the boats.
