If paddling in a James Bond setting is what you're after, grab a sit-on-top kayak and head to the Karst Islands of Phuket, Thailand. Here you'll find towering columns rising straight out of Phang Nga Bay, water-filled caves that will have you leaning back in your boat to stare at stalactites, and narrow limestone passages that will force you to place your paddle alongside your craft to get through. All this comes with tropical beaches and clear, blue water that would give even 007 pause from his mission. Outfitter: www.seacanoe.com.
