Day 1) Phuket
Welcome to Phuket, Thailand’s largest and most popular island. Phuket is an island full of sunshine exotica and modern pizazz. It has excellent beaches, a huge array of restaurants serving local flavours, comfortable hotels, bars and shopping options – so you might want to consider arriving a couple of days early. Today, be ready to board and meet your skipper and group at 1 pm. After an orientation of the yacht, you’ll begin your journey across the Andaman Sea. Your skipper will select an island to anchor for the night where you’ll have time to enjoy a dip in the clear water, followed by a relaxing dinner on board and a beautiful sunset.  

Day 2) Koh Phanak, Koh Hong, Koh Phak Bia
After breakfast on board, you’ll head to Koh Phanak, where you have the option to visit the ice cream cave, full of stalagmites and stalactites. You’ll be transferred to the small beach via a dinghy, from where you’ll explore the ice cream-like structures in the cave. Next, head to Koh Hong, where you’ll be given an instructional briefing for a kayak or paddleboard trip to the island. Enjoy a delicious Thai lunch on board when you return and then head to Koh Phak Bia, where you’ll spend the evening. You can swim, kayak or paddleboard, or just kick back on the yacht and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The sunset here is not to be missed! Your chef will tantalise your taste buds with an amazing Thai dinner this evening.

Day 3) Koh Kai, Railay Beach
This morning after breakfast, you’ll sail to Chicken Island – with its distinctive bird-like shape and bright blue waters full of diverse marine life, this is the perfect spot to enjoy some snorkelling. After you snorkel and have some lunch, sail towards Railay Beach in the late afternoon. There will be plenty of time to relax at the beach, read a good book in the sun or walk the coastline. Railay Beach has some great restaurants, too, so tonight you can join the group for an optional dinner on the beachfront at one of the local favourites that features live music. Later, head back to the yacht which will be anchored in the bay, via a longtail boat – a real Thai experience! 

Day 4) Koh Phi Phi
After breakfast on board, head towards the most talked about place in Thailand – Koh Phi Phi. For many, this is the iconic image of Thailand – two islands connected by a great arc of pure white sand, striking limestone cliffs and unbelievably inviting waters. Travellers are drawn to the island thanks to its colourful marine life, as well as the array of shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles on the beach. You will arrive at approximately 12 pm and will have free time to wander around and explore. This is the perfect spot if you’re looking to buy any souvenirs – maybe it’s time for a new sarong or a hat? In the late afternoon, meet back with your skipper and other group members, and sail to Koh Phi Phi Leh for the night.

Day 5) Phi Phi Lay, Maithon Island
Rise and shine for a picture-perfect morning! You’ll enjoy a leisurely breakfast prepared by your chef and then sail towards Viking Cave, where you’ll learn about the fascinating history of the limestone cliff and cave underneath. Next, sail to Koh Khai, a small collection of islands out in the middle of the Andaman Sea. Here, you can enjoy some excellent snorkelling and swim among brightly coloured corals and huge schools of tropical fish. After lunch on board, continue sailing towards Koh Mai Thon and arrive in the late afternoon. Celebrate the crystal-clear waters of the area with a spot of kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming or snorkelling – or just take this chance to relax on board with a good book. Join your group for dinner on the boat and kick back with a drink, watching the sunset. 

Day 6) Coral Island, Nui Beach
This morning after breakfast, sail to Koh Hae, also known also as Coral Island, for a morning snorkel or kayak followed by a delicious lunch on board. After lunch, sail toward the Koh Man Islands and stop for a snorkel between Koh Man and Nui Beach. If you prefer to be above water, you can instead enjoy some kayaking and paddleboarding here. Tonight, head to Nui Beach via dingy and enjoy an optional dinner at one of the many restaurants on the beachfront. Nui Beach is known for being one of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand, as it resembles a private beach and is only accessible by boat (or by trekking across the jungle). Return to the yacht, where you might want to consider spending your final evening sleeping under the stars out on the deck. 

Day 7) Phuket, Ao Chalong Bay
Take a last-minute swim this morning before a smooth sail brings you back to Phuket, at approximately 11.00 am. This is where your Andaman seafaring odyssey comes to an end. You’re free to explore all that Phuket has to offer, or to continue your onward journey home.
