It doesn't get much better than a 7-day sailing adventure through Thailand’s best islands. Spend your time enjoying sublime seascapes, snorkelling through turquoise waters, relaxing on white beaches and discovering craggy limestone peaks by boat. Welcome to the beautiful Andaman Sea! This is your chance to experience the region with the wind in your hair and the sun and salt on your skin. From the iconic landscape of Koh Phi Phi to bustling Phuket – this yacht adventure gives you plenty of time to swim, snorkel, paddleboard and kayak by day and chill out on the deck watching the sunset by night. With a like-minded group by your side and a private chef cooking up fresh Thai flavours – what better way to spend a week in Thailand?

Why you'll love this trip
  • Leave behind the vibrant, modern pizzazz of Phuket and set sail on the beautifully calm waters of the Andaman Sea – by yacht no less!
  • Slip into the beach-loving life with long walks on the finest white sands and salty swims in the inviting azure waters of Thailand’s best beaches.
  • There are few things more relaxing than sleeping out beneath the stars, rocked by the gentle pitch of a yacht. Choose to spend a night on the deck and see for yourself.
  • Feast on delicious food with no effort at all – you’ll have the added benefit of an onboard chef, whipping up Thai favourites daily.
  • Relax with the knowledge that the biggest decision of the day is whether to paddleboard, snorkel, swim with the tropical fish or kayak across shimmering seas.

Is this trip right for you?
  • As most of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including stairs. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.  
  • Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sunscreen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.

AACCOMMODATION ON BOARD THE YACHT
This trip is accommodated on board a 58 foot, twin-hulled sailing catamaran. Our boat is equipped with 1 x twin-share, 2 x double-share and 2 x quad-share cabins each with en-suite bathrooms and fans.
The skipper will allocate the rooms on arrival to the boat and single travellers will be paired up with another passenger of the same sex, this may mean sharing a double mattress. The skipper will also be sharing the catamaran's facilities and sleeping quarters.
While some may find the living quarters quite close, those who are looking to revel in the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip usually find any discomfort is more than made up for by the spirit of this sailing experience.

Book this trip! You won't regret it. Rob, Doh, and Chai do an amazing job of taking care of everyone on the boat. Our incredible chef Jum served us meals that often times outshined meals I had in most restaurants. I cannot recommend this trip enough. I booked it last minute and it was one of my favorite parts of my four weeks in Thailand.

Great trip! This was totally out of my comfort zone sort of trip and I went and did it anyway. So glad I did! Spent time with a great group of people and staff were super lovely. They really wanted everyone to feel comfortable and have a good time. It's the perfect way to catch up on sleep! Especially sleeping outside at night and having a wonderful view of the stars. Main trip highlights: snorkelling , the food, the sunrises/sunsets. It made coming back to civilisation and reality much harder!

No air conditioning in cabins so unable to sleep at night. Itinerary is misleading (in my opinion)- I thought that islands stated would be visited by foot too and not just seen from a distance. A lot of itinerary not fulfilled with no flexible or discussed new options. Closed mindset guide - he didn’t enjoy “tourist traps” and therefore we shouldn’t either (but I am a tourist) Unable to swim or snorkel most times due to jelly fish (not anyone’s fault but alternative arrangements should have been discussed or allowed).

Pros: Thailand is an incredible, stunning country & best seen by boat, our cook was amazing. Cons: Boat is insanely hot, small fans, there were so many jellyfish that we couldn't swim for the first 3 days (our leader told us Intrepid knew about the issue & decided not to warn us), our guide was a nightmare. I have been on many Intrepid trips... but this was NOT it.
