Jump on board and sail between the tropical islands of Thailand. Feel the wind in your hair as you set sail through the paradisical surroundings of Thailand's west coast. Plunge into the glistening turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea and lie back on powdery white island beaches as this short but sweet sailing adventure gives you a taste of this magnificent part of the world.
Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Phuket, arguably Thailand’s best known island, and certainly its largest. Phuket is an island of modern pizazz mixed with sunshine exotica. It has some excellent beaches and a huge array of restaurants, hotels, bars and shopping, so perhaps arrive a couple of days early to check it out. At 1pm today you’ll meet your skipper and other group members at the Bullship Bar, Chalong Bay, ready to board. After an orientation of the yacht and collection of your important insurance and next of kin information, begin your journey across the Andaman Sea with a sail towards Ko Rang Yai Island, where the boat will drop anchor in front of a private beach. This is the perfect place to ease in to life on board with a dip in the water, dinner on board and a beautiful sunset.
Notes: The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.
After breakfast, start to explore by cruising into the famous Phang Nga Bay where the James Bond movie 'Man with the Golden Gun' was made. This is a stunning landscape of sheer limestone karsts that jut dramatically out of the green water. Enjoy lunch at some remote islands, and have the opportunity to explore – the hardest decision you’ll have to make is whether to swim or kayak around this gorgeous spot. Surrounded by towering karst formations and many small offshore islands, you can take a kayak to move slowly through the bays and canyons that are like passageways, discovering inlets, caves and hidden lagoons, and checking out the local wildlife up-close – the birds overhead and monkeys in the trees. Tonight you’ll anchor in an isolated spot in the north-east part of the bay between Ko Klui and Ko Chang. Spend the evening comfortably slumped in a bean bag, reading, eating and drinking, surrounded by turquoise blue water, and watch the sun dip beneath the waves.
Set sail this morning towards the lonely island of Ko Hong. Half way between the island of Ko Yao Noi and Krabi, Ko Hong is truly desert island destination, uninhabited except for gibbons, birds, and lizards, where two powdery white sand beaches line twin bays. The name translates to ‘Room’, and this might refer to the tranquil lagoon hidden inside the island. Here you’ll take out the dinghy and explore the sea caves before stopping on the quintessential image of a tropical beach for swimming and snorkelling. Strap on a mask and mingle with a wealth of curious marine life, or perhaps chill out on deck with a good book and a bowl of fresh fruit. Your sailing day ends in Railay, a paradise with sheer-sided limestone mountains around the beach. After viewing a stunning sunset, have dinner ashore amid the cluster of lively restaurants and bars. Back on the boat you can choose to spend the final night of this fabulously relaxing Thailand sailing adventure sleeping out on the deck under the stars.
Spend an early morning on Railay Beach (before everyone arrives), then sail to the most talked about place in Thailand – the island group of Ko Phi Phi. For many, this is the iconic image of the country – two islands connected by a great arc of pure white sand, striking limestone cliffs, and water that’s an unbelievably inviting shade of turquoise green. The island draws people through its fame as the location of Leonardo Di Caprio’s ‘The Beach’, but also for its colourful marine life, shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles on the beach. Try to spot schools of brightly coloured fish off the coast of Phi Phi before sailing on to Phi Phi Don, where you’ll dock by approximately 12 noon. This is where this Andaman seafaring odyssey comes to an end. Afterwards you are free to explore all that Phi Phi has to offer, or to continue your onward journey.
