A Phuket cruising itinerary presents myriad opportunities to savour the varied delights of Thailand’s shimmering emerald-coloured waters, towering limestone pinnacles, scenic anchorages, pristine beaches, traditional fishing villages, chic resorts, and some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving in the world. The passages can be confined to the sheltered waters off the east coast of Phuket or you can venture further into the Andaman Sea to the picturesque Phi Phi Islands (see Phuket maps). The west coast of Phuket, with its stunningly beautiful beaches and waterfront resorts as well as the offshore islands in the Similan and Surin groups, is an option during the north-east monsoon, which offers dry, sunny, and relatively cool tropical weather ideal for Phuket yacht charters.

Day 1

Koh Hong

Yachting in Koh Hong waters brings you to the glorious beauty of Ao Phang-nga National Park, which was established in 1981. It’s known throughout the world for its myriad caves, soaring limestone pinnacles, and lush mangrove forests. Large and small mountains rise from the sea at Koh Hong, creating a stunning backdrop to an anchorage surrounded by towering rock formations.

Day 2

Koh Roi

Cruising in Koh Roi waters west across Phang-nga Bay is a voyage among intriguing and beautiful islands in a tropical wonderland. Koh Roi, and its neighbour, Koh Kudu Yai, are excellent stopover points before heading south toward Krabi and its beautiful beaches, or the world-famous Phi Phi Islands.

Day 3

Koh Hong Krabi

Koh Hong Krabi yachting is memorable for its stunning beauty. The islands of the Koh Hong Krabi archipelago offer a varied array of snorkeling, pristine beaches, and opportunities to explore ashore or in the dinghy.

Day 4

Rai Le Beach

Rai Le Beach cruising is a delightful sojourn to the mainland of south Thailand, famous for its spectacular beaches fronting the Andaman Sea. Many are inaccessible by road due to the towering cliffs and rock formations on the peninsula, creating a remote and secluded ambience that persists even at some of the more developed beaches.

Day 5

The Phi Phi Islands

Cruising in Phi Phi Don waters is a must during any Phuket yacht charter. Said to be one of the three most beautiful islands in the world, Phi Phi Don is a major tourist attraction, drawing boatloads of visitors every day during the high season from Phuket and Krabi. Yet, it still retains its idyllic charm, with the beachfront restaurants, bars, and shops at Ton Sai Bay blending in with the stunning scenery. Nearby Phi Phi Le is also magnificent, a jewel of the Andaman Sea well worth exploring. Snorkeling and scuba diving on the reefs in the area is some of the best in Thailand.

Day 6

Koh Rang Yai

Yachting in Koh Rang Yai waters is a delight as you cruise along the east coast of Phuket. Koh Rang Yai and the surrounding area are very popular among local boaters, in part because of its location with easy access to Phang-nga Bay, Krabi, and the Phi Phi Islands. There is a restaurant ashore, and bike rentals are available.

Day 7

Phuket

Yachting in Phuket waters presents a wonderful opportunity to experience Thailand’s many pleasures, ranging from tours of historic sites and Buddhist temples, savoring the delights of the island’s gorgeous beaches, shopping and dining in Phuket Town, to dancing the night away in chic nightclubs and enjoying the ambience of a laid-back waterfront bar. Cruising in Phuket is a splendid mix of island hopping in marine preserves and thrilling open-water passages south of the island in the shimmering Andaman Sea. In short, Phuket is a boater’s paradise in one of Asia’s most scenic countries.

Koh Racha Yai

Yachting in Koh Racha Yai waters is a delightful experience, presenting an opportunity to explore two intriguing islands about 12 miles south of Phuket and just over 25 miles from the Phi Phi Islands. The largest island is Racha Yai, a premier cruising destination on any Phuket yacht charter because of its gorgeous beach of snow-white sand at Ao Tawan Tok, a U-shaped bay on the northwestern shore. The much smaller Koh Racha Noi is rocky and uninhabited, but it’s known for the excellent fishing in a small bay on the west side of the island.
