Highlights
  • Leave behind the vibrant, modern pizazz of Phuket and set sail on the beautifully calm waters of the Andaman Sea
  • There are few things more relaxing than sleeping out beneath the stars, rocked by the gentle pitch of a yacht

  • Feast on delicious food with no effort at all, with the on-board chef whipping up Thai favourites

Just imagine seven fabulous days enjoying sublime seascapes of shimmering turquoise water, white sandy beaches and craggy limestone peaks.

Pretty amazing way to travel to all the islands in Phang Nga Bay! We set sail from Phuket and traveled from island to island on our own sailboat. The captain was very experienced with many years sailing between the islands and his wife was an amazing cook. Some of the best meals I had in Thailand were on this boat! We were able to go to places that most tourists don't get to see and the places that were touristic were were able to go at off times and have the place to ourselves. Quarters were a little cramped however we spent little time in bed. Most of the time was spent swimming, sunning and exploring. Even spent a couple of starry nights sleeping out out on the deck. Really an amazing experience with Intrepid Travel. Next tour... Sailing in Myanmar!!

Itinerary

Day 1 Phuket

Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Phuket, arguably Thailand’s best known island, and certainly its largest. Phuket is an island of modern pizazz mixed with sunshine exotica. At 1pm today you’ll meet your skipper and other group members at the Bullship Bar, Chalong Bay, ready to board. As the space on board the Cataleya is limited, it's recommended to bring a small soft-sided bag or a backpack. If you are travelling with a larger bag or suitcase, you can leave your luggage at our base in Chalong and take a small overnight or daypack on board. After an orientation of the yacht and collection of your important insurance and next of kin information, begin your journey across the Andaman Sea with a sail towards Ko Rang Yai Island, where the boat will drop anchor in front of a private beach. This is the perfect place to ease in to life on board with a dip in the water, dinner on board and a beautiful sunset. Notes: The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we are flexible on the day's itinerary. The itinerary is subject to change and may vary depending on weather and berth availability. Your skipper will make the final call to ensure your safety at all times.

Day 2-6 Phang Nga Bay

After breakfast, start to explore by cruising into famous Phang Nga Bay, where the James Bond movie 'Man with the Golden Gun' was made. This is a stunning landscape of sheer limestone karsts that jut dramatically out of the green water. Enjoy lunch in remote islands, and have the opportunity to explore – the hardest decision you’ll have to make is whether to swim or kayak around this gorgeous spot. Surrounded by towering karst formations and many small offshore islands, you can kayak slowly through the bays and canyons that are like passageways, discovering inlets, caves and hidden lagoons, and checking out the local wildlife up-close – the birds overhead and monkeys in the trees. Tonight you’ll anchor in an isolated spot in the north-east part of the bay between Ko Klui and Ko Chang. Spend the evening comfortably slumped in a bean bag, reading, eating and drinking, surrounded by turquoise blue water, and watch the sun dip beneath the waves. Set sail this morning towards the lonely island of Ko Hong. Half way between the island of Ko Yao Noi and Krabi, Ko Hong is truly desert island destination, uninhabited except for gibbons, birds, and lizards, where two powdery white sand beaches line twin bays. The name translates to ‘Room’, and this might refer to the tranquil lagoon hidden inside the island. Here you’ll take out the dinghy and explore the sea caves before stopping on the quintessential image of a tropical beach for swimming and snorkelling. Strap on a mask or perhaps chill out on deck with a good book and a bowl of fresh fruit. Your sailing day ends in Railay, a paradise with sheer-sided limestone mountains around the beach. After viewing a stunning sunset, have dinner ashore amid the cluster of lively restaurants and bars. Back on the boat you can choose to spend another night of this fabulously relaxing Thailand sailing adventure sleeping out on the deck under the stars. Spend an early morning on Railay Beach (before everyone arrives), then sail to the most talked about place in Thailand – the island group of Ko Phi Phi. 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 water that’s an unbelievably inviting shade of turquoise green. The island draws people through its fame as the location of Leonardo Di Caprio’s ‘The Beach’, but also for its colourful marine life, shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles on the beach. Try to spot schools of brightly coloured fish off the coast of Phi Phi before sailing on to Phi Phi Don. In free time, hike to Phi Phi viewpoint, go fishing or just enjoy the beaches and buzzing nightlife. Pull up the anchor early this morning and sail north, before stopping at Monkey Bay for some snorkelling. Just outside Loh Dalum Bay to the west, Monkey Bay’s beach is one of the most beautiful in the whole of Thailand, not just Phi Phi, which is really saying something in a country blessed with endless gorgeous sands. The bay gets its name from the monkeys who cavort around on the beach – keep an eye on any of your possessions as they are pretty cheeky! The water is clear and the coral is just below the surface – brightly coloured fish dart here and there, inches from your mask. After lunch, in the afternoon continue northwest to the undeveloped, unspoilt island of Ko Yao Yai. Here you’ll find lovely lonely beaches surrounded by mangroves. Around the beautiful bays there’s excellent snorkelling, leafy forest trails and sea kayaking to choose from. It’s a great place to relax away from the tourist trail and absorb the natural wonders, somewhere where glimpses of traditional island culture are still seen. Later this evening, head out to the beach to cap off another unforgettable day with a night beach BBQ, maybe grilling up some fresh fish caught earlier today. Relax the night away beside a fire pit, and watch the sun sink beneath the waves. Set sail across a postcard landscape of shimmering azure waters and island-studded bays southwest to Ko Racha. Known for the clearest blue water in the area, these islands are a great destination for snorkelling, and are mainly home to farmers and fishermen. Enjoy these fine powder white sandy beaches, get active in the warm and inviting water with activities like kayaking or paddle boarding, or head ashore to take a walk across the island, passing coconut groves and the occasional water buffalo grazing, and be treated to some spectacular views. Maybe strap on a mask and head underwater with great visibility and clarity, where you can mingle with a wealth of curious marine life in a protected cove, or perhaps simply chill out on deck and enjoy the view. Spend your last evening on the boat soaking up this unique location and view. Don’t forget to make the most of your wonderful surroundings by choosing to sleep out on deck under the stars.

Day 7 Phuket

A smooth sail brings you to your final destination of Phuket Island around 12 noon. Stop for your last chance to paddle, swim and snorkel in the waters of the Andaman Sea, spotting schools of brightly coloured fish off the coast before docking in Phuket. It has some excellent beaches and a huge array of restaurants, hotels, bars and shopping, so perhaps take a couple of extra days here to check it all out. This is where your Andaman seafaring odyssey comes to an end. Afterwards you are free to explore all that Phuket has to offer, or to continue your onward journey.

Guides On your Thailand sailing trip you will be accompanied by one of our skippers and a chef. Your skipper's role involves taking charge of the sailing, organising the overall operation and smooth-running of the trip, managing trip logistics, safety of the vessel and safety for all passengers on board. All skippers have extensive sailing miles experience and hold a 'yacht master offshore license' or higher. They have been carefully selected and undergone intensive training of each itinerary they sail. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect your skipper to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. Your chef will prepare tasty local cuisine meals using the best of the local fresh produce available.
