  • 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.

Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Koh Phi Phi, one of the most talked about places in Thailand. 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 an unbelievably turquoise sea. Travellers are drawn to the island because of its colourful marine life, as well as the array of shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles on the beach. You might want to arrive a few days early to enjoy the nightlife, hike to Phi Phi viewpoint or snorkel in waters filled with clown fish, barracuda, manta rays and reef sharks. Today, meet your skipper and other group members at 3 pm and be ready to board your home for the next 4 days. Your journey across the Andaman Sea will begin after orientation, setting sail towards Koh Phi Phi Leh – your destination for the evening. This is the perfect place to ease into life on board with a dip in the water, dinner prepared by your onboard chef and a glorious sunset.

Special Information
The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while you’ll have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, the day's itinerary is flexible. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call and always ensure your safety. If you’re unable to stop at Ko Phi Phi Leh, you’ll spend the evening at Monkey Beach instead.

This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending most of your time above board in the open air. 
Rise and shine for a picture-perfect morning! You’ll enjoy a leisurely breakfast prepared by your chef and then sail towards Viking Cave, where you’ll learn about the fascinating history of the limestone cliff and cave underneath. Next, sail to Ko Khai, a small collection of islands out in the middle of the Andaman Sea. Here, you can enjoy some excellent snorkelling and swim among brightly coloured corals and huge schools of tropical fish. After lunch on board, continue sailing towards Koh Mai Thon and arrive in the late afternoon. Celebrate the crystal-clear waters of the area with a spot of kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming or snorkelling – or just take this chance to relax on board with a good book. Join your group for dinner on the boat and kick back with a drink, watching the sunset.

This morning after breakfast, sail to Koh Hae, also known also as Coral Island, for a morning snorkel or kayak followed by a delicious lunch on board. After lunch, sail toward the Koh Man Islands and stop for a snorkel between Koh Man and Nui Beach. If you prefer to be above water, you can instead enjoy some kayaking and paddleboarding here. Tonight, head to Nui Beach via dingy and enjoy an optional dinner at one of the many restaurants on the beachfront. Nui Beach is known for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand, as it resembles a private beach and is only accessible by boat (or by trekking across the jungle). Return to the yacht, where you might want to consider spending your final evening sleeping under the stars out on the deck.

Take a last-minute swim this morning before a smooth sail brings you to your final destination – Phuket Island, at approximately 12 pm. Arguably Thailand’s most well-known and certainly its largest island, Phuket is full of sunshine exotica and modern pizazz. This is where your Andaman seafaring odyssey comes to an end. Phuket has some excellent beaches and a huge array of restaurants, hotels, bars and shopping, so you might want to stick around a couple of days to check it out properly. You’re free to explore all that Phuket has to offer, or to continue your onward journey home.
