Sailing Thailand - Phuket to Phuket
Day 1 Phuket (D)
We will meet in Phuket at the 'The Living Room' restaurant at The Yacht Haven Marina' at 3pm. The Marina is approximately 15 minutes by taxi from Phuket airport. Please check the joining instructions section of this dossier for directions. In the afternoon we will sail off in our comfortable catamaran towards the Northern Phuket Islands. You can choose to go on a dinghy exploration, suntan on the deck and go for an evening swim under the stars.
Day 2 Phang Nga Bay, Khao Phing Kan & Sea-Gypsy Village (B,L,D)
We depart in the morning, and sail on through the emerald waters to James Bond Island made famous as the setting for "The Man with the Golden Gun". Afterwards, we'll visit one of the last "Sea Gipsy" villages spending the early afternoon ashore exploring. This afternoon there is an option to take a long tailed boat tour to Tam Lot cave and see local prehistoric cave paintings. This evening we anchor amongst limestone island scenery and enjoy a local dinner.
Day 3 Krabi Islands & Railay Beach (B,L)
Weighing anchor up the morning, we sail towards Rai Lay Beach. Here we enjoy a stunning beach with crystal clear water for a swim, some snorkeling practise and lunch break. Arriving in Rai Lay in the early afternoon, enjoy free time to explore this laid back beach resort. Climb to the stunning local view point, kick back and enjoy a massage, visit the Shrine of the Sea Princess or catch up on your emails. This evening we head out to a local restaurant and enjoy a taste of the local night life afterwards.
Day 4 Phi Phi Islands & Maya Bay (B,D)
It’s an early start this morning towards Phi Phi Islands, one of the most beautiful island groups in Thailand. Along the way we'll have a short stop over for some geat snorkeling in Monkey Bay - get your bananas ready! This afternoon, we depart our boat at Ton Sai Bay and enjoy time for lunch, swimming, shopping, and exploring. Don’t miss the chance to head up to the local viewpoint here for stunning views overlooking the archipelego. In the late afternoon we set sail towards Phi Phi Le, where we visit Maya Bay, also known locally as ‘Leonardo's Paradise’, where 'The Beach' was filmed. Depending on weather conditions, we may spend the evening anchored off of this beautiful (but very popular!) beach or head to Koh Phi Phi Don if the group would like a touch of nightlife. As this is a combination tour, some of your "crew" may depart today and you may be joined by some new travelling companions this afternoon.
Day 5 Southern Phuket Islands (B,L)
It's a long sailing day today as we make our way through the Southern Phuket Islands. We take our time, enjoy snorkeling with the stunning sea life and a lunch break amongst remote islands and sandy beaches. In the afternoon, we'll drop anchor and make our way to shore, ready to enjoy dinner at a local restaurant.
Day 6 Koh Yao Yai, Koh Khai Nai & Phang Nga Bay (B,L,D)
A longer sail brings us to the tiny island of Koh Khai Nai for excellent swimming and snorkeling off a clear sandy beach. In the afternoon, we will sail into Phang Nga Bay before enjoying dinner in a secluded anchorage.
