What's included in this trip
Phuket Sailing Adventure SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Cast away on a journey across the Andaman Sea, from the scenic spoils of Phuket to lush Ko Phi Phi. Explore to the legendary ‘James Bond Island’ and admire the stilted sea village of Ko Pan Yi. After a relaxing longtail boat ride through the mangroves, settle in for the night atop the calm waters of the bay.
Delve into mysterious sea caves around the base of Ko Hong before settling in for a day of water fun. Spot colourful marine life while snorkelling or perhaps chill out on deck with a good book and a fresh fruit shake. Later in the day, rock climbers can get adventurous on the limestone cliffs of Railay, before enjoying dinner ashore amid the cluster of lively restaurants and bars.
Wake up with a morning cliff jump into the Andaman Sea, and then glide across the sparkling water to beautiful Ko Lanta. Here, jungle trekking is a great way to expend some energy, but as always, the lure of waterside activities makes it tough to leave the boat!
Continue on to the tropical island of Ko Phi Phi, where lush jungle meets velvety sandbars and blue waters blend seamlessly into an even bluer sky. Talk about easy on the eyes! Get acquainted with Phi Phi’s famous fruit shakes and zesty curries as you take it all in.
Set sail across a postcard landscape of shimmering azure ocean and island-studded bays. Flop straight into the sea for lazy bouts of snorkelling and diving, or perhaps choose to just float along the top of the water as the sun beats down. Disembark and, if feeling adventurous, take a hike to the hilltop lookout on Ko Racha for more eye-spoiling views. In the evening, dine aboard the roof of the boat on fragrant Thai dishes, washed down with cold local brew.
Head out towards Ko Yao Yai today, stopping at a small coral island for a dip. Perhaps make tracks through dense forests on land, or choose to stay oceanside, lapping up all the spoils. Perhaps even grab a kayak and discover nearby caves and mangroves. Cap off another memorable day with a bonfire on the beach.
The last leg of the journey sees the bow aimed towards Phuket. Enjoy a final stop of swimming and snorkelling off the tiny island of Ko Khai Nai, before arriving at Ao Po Marina.
