Why you'll love this trip
  • From vibrant Phuket, set sail on the beautifully calm waters of the Andaman Sea on a private yacht and watch unforgettable sunsets from the deck every evening.
  • Explore some of the gulf's best beaches, sailing in the early mornings before the crowds of tourists and residents arrive.
  • Feast on delicious food onboard thanks to your private chef who will be whipping up Thai favourites daily. You’ll also have the option to head to some of the local seaside restaurants.
  • Discover Koh Hong's mysterious caves – nicknamed the ice cream caves, for their distinctive stalagmite shape.
  • Take comfort in knowing that your biggest decision each day will be whether to snorkel, paddleboard or kayak.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, EcoThailand Foundation. Donations help educate school children on important environmental issues like climate change, nature appreciation, conservation and sustainability.

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.


A twin-hulled catamaran, the ‘beautiful orchid’ carries up to 14 passengers in three twin/double cabins and two quad cabins with en-suite facilities. There are spacious communal areas for relaxing, sunbathing, and sunset drinks.

Please provide full passport details at time of booking including exact name as per passport, date of birth, nationality, issue and expiry dates as these are essential for booking services on this trip.

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.

Incredible, enlightening and simply amazing. The people, the location the entire trip! Will forever remain a highlight of my Thailand travels and I'm researching for my next Intrepid trip already.

Spent 4 days on board Catalaya , Rob provided a brilliant faultless experience. Probably the highlight of my 4 weeks in Thailand. Great memories!

I had an amazing time sailing for the 4 days. As this was my first time solo travelling and being a female aged 20 I was very nervous. Rob and the team made me feel very comfortable and I couldn’t recommend this trip to other travellers enough. The people I got to meet and places I got to see is something I will always hold on to. Thankyou Rob & crew for such an amazing trip, hope to see you all again soon.

The sail-trip on the Cataleya was amazing. It's a unique experience and Rob is a perfect leader. Regardless of whether you have any sailing knowledge, I can recommend it to everyone. 5 stars to the crew!

This trip far exceeded my expectations As a mature age older solo female traveller felt always included and crew were extra helpful The briefings explaining what to expect each day were great and there was ample time for questions Rob was always available for a chat.I definitely recommend this trip but take the 7 days not the 4 as I did .
