This one week sailing trip was excellent. Captain Nolte and team took a nice care of all the people on board. The local thai food cooked on the ship was very delicious. I experienced one ofv the best sunsets and night sky in my life. I enjoyed the company of my fellow travelers from different parts of the world.

I had a great time on the 4 day sailing tour from Phuket to Ko Phi Phi. I've never done a sailing trip before and I was worried about getting sea sick but it was smooth sailing. Island hopping, snorkeling, kayaking, cave exploring, and of course just chillin on the front deck were all highlights of this trip. Food was amazing! The only thing I didn't like were the sleeping quarters. I stayed in the twin (bunk bed) cabin. It was very tight spaced and hot. There is a fan, which helped a bit but be warned, it does take a day or 2 to get used to. Otherwise a minor inconvenience. I would highly recommend this tour. Expect high quality as usual from Intrepid. Much appreciate.
