8-day island cruise around Phuket

Phuket, Thailand Island Hopping

Enjoy a fantastic 8 day vacation on board an amazing yacht, cruising around Thailand

Our recommended itinerary is as follows for this experience:

Day 1: Phuket Ao Po Marina – Phang Nga Bay
Sail to Phang-Nga Bay, home to magnificent limestone cliffs and islands offering spectacular
views. Visit James Bond Island, the location for the film The Man with the Golden Gun, the Talu cave and the surrounding mangroves rivers. Enjoy a memorable visit to the Sea Gypsy Village at Ko Panyi, set on stilts over the water and only accessible by boat.

Day 2: Phang Nga Bay – Krabi
Swim around and explore the fascinating Hong Island, named for its large internal lagoon,
and visit Panak Island. Continue sailing to Krabi, another great sightseeing destination
with locations ideal for swimming and relaxing on beautiful beaches. Anchor up for the night and why not go shopping on Ao Nang Beach?

Day 3: Krabi – Phi Phi Island
Sail to Phi Phi Island, one of Thailand’s most beautiful islands. Discover the magical landscape of Maya Bay where you can enjoy snorkeling in an emerald crystal sea and see where the movie The Beach was partially filmed. Snorkel in colorful coral reefs teeming with undersea life. Phi Phi is a paradise in the Andaman Sea.

Day 4: Phi Phi Island – Lanta Island
Sail toward Lanta Island which lies on the west coast of Andaman Sea in between Krabi and Phi Phi Island. Nine beaches lie from north to south along the sunset coast and offer stunning scenery and fantastic white sandy beaches. This beautiful coastline has more than 70 small islands and plenty with forest, coral reefs and underwater life.

Day 5: Lanta Island – Rok Island
Visit Rok Island, which is actually two islands: Ko Rok Nai (inside) and Ko Rok Nok (outside). Ko Rok Nai is composed mainly of steep cliffs with superb beaches and unspoiled coral reefs among rocks. On the other hand, Ko Rok Nok has soft white sandy beaches and shallow water coral reefs towards the southeast and south with Hat Thalu and Had Man Sai, the most popular beach, which has white sand beaches where you can while the day away. Enjoy a snorkel and share the water with many different species of fish in day time, before watching an impressive sunset as the sun disappears over the horizon.

Day 6: Rok Island – Racha Islands
Travel onwards to the Racha Islands which are best known as excellent diving and snorkeling destinations. Racha Yai reveals itself in splendid fashion with most arrivals landing onto a strip of fine white sand tucked deep into the long, U-shaped main bay, called Ao Tawan Tok or Ao Bungalow. The other large bay, Ao Siam, is a pretty place where lonely strolls in solitude are possible. Racha Noi is uninhabited but is home to some exceptional diving as a result of the lack of human interaction.

Day 7: Racha Islands – Phuket Island
Sail to Ko Rang Yai to visit a pearl farm in one of the most well-known and extensive pearling operations in Southern Thailand. This fascinating place includes a demonstration of pearl cultivation and gives you an opportunity to buy pearls of all sizes at the island pearl shop. Sail back to Phuket Island for your penultimate night on board.

Day 8: Phuket Island – Phuket Yacht Haven Marina
Two hours sailing takes you back to Phuket Yacht Haven Marina for a midday disembarkation after an unforgettable week in the beautiful waters of Thailand.
