Sail through the Land of Smiles!

Depart on a cruise across the Andaman Sea and discover beautiful landscapes, exciting cultures and philosophies, welcoming people and fine, spicy cuisine. Thailand welcomes you and opens its doors to its natural treasures for an exceptional sailing experience.

Departing from the Phuket Marina

Your catamaran or sailing boat rental begins on the island of Phuket. Thanks to its international airport, it is the starting point for the majority of pleasure boats. When you arrive, take a moment to enjoy the city's lively atmosphere, the old town and its colonial buildings, or its fragrant and colourful markets before you hop aboard.

Go North towards the Similan Islands

Around a hundred kilometres north of the island of Phuket, the Similan Islands rise up from the Andaman Sea. These granite islands are exceptionally beautiful. The coral-sand beaches are an almost pristine white and the turquoise waters are fantastically rich with coral reefs and fish in every colour. They are a real treat for diving and snorkelling addicts. The archipelago has been classed as a National Park and is amongst the 10 most beautiful diving sites in the world.

Sail between the rocky peaks of Phang-Nga

The long spectacular beaches of Phuket offer a surprising contrast to the Phan-Nga Bay, dotted with peaceful, deserted islands ideal for dropping anchor. The little sister of Halong Bay and amongst the most beautiful in the world, it is home to around 300 limestone peaks measuring up to 100 m tall and covered in dense vegetation. You will glide through these spectacular landscapes and along sheer cliffs, the bases of which have been eroded by the sea.

Sail to Krabi

A little to the south, you will come across Krabi and its spectacular landscapes combining impressive karst blocks, licks of fine sand, turquoise blue waters and coves surrounded by mangroves: Landscapes worthy of the best pirate films! Largely classified as a National Park, the islets and rocky peaks of the Krabi waters (the archipelago of Koh Phi Phi, Ao Nang beach, Tonsai...) form one of the most heavenly regions in Thailand. Sail to the Yao Noi and Yao Yai Islands, two islands which have successfully maintained their authentic way of life and a peaceful atmosphere in the heart of the most visited areas of Krabi, Phuket and Phang Nga. Take a spin through the mangroves on board a sea kayak and discover the little fishing villages there. Don't miss the breathtaking sunsets with a coconut in hand, away from the rest of the world.

You won't regret your cruise around Thailand: The Phuket region is brimming with islands, each one more beautiful than the last and more or less wild, depending on what you feel like. A wide variety of sailing routes are available to you: Koh Kaew, Koh Bon, Koh Lone, Kohj Hae, Koh Racha, Koh Sire, Koh Yao Noi, Koh Yao Yai, Koh Mai Thon, Koh Maphrao, Koh Phiphi, Similan Islands, Khjo Khai, Koh Panyee and Koh Phra Thong. There are so many places for you to drop anchor.

We suggest that you rent a catamaran to make the most of the sun with the saloon open to the outdoors.
