Day 1: Arrive at the Ao Po Marina, on the east coast of Phuket, you will be met by one of the team who will show you to your yacht. Once you are familiar with the yacht, sailing area and have stocked up with provisions you can set sail to Phang Nga Bay. Please note some of these Islands are designated as National Parks and entrance fees are charged. Check the Pilot Book for more information
For your first overnight stop we recommend Koh Hong and BBQ on board. Whilst in this bay you can enjoy kayaking through the caves.
Day 2: Cruise through stunning Phang Nga Bay.
Phang Nga Bay covers an area of 400 sqkm and is home to some 100 islands, famous either for their beauty or for their freakish shapes. James Bond Island is one of those famous landmarks, with its signature rocky pinnacle, has been a major attraction ever since it featured in the 1974 Bond movie,’The Man with the Golden Gun’. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water.
We recommend an overnight anchorage at Koh Roi or Koh Kudu Yai (10 Miles). No facilities ashore.
Day 3: Stop for lunch, swim & snorkel (remember to bring your own) at Koh Hong, Krabi. Overnight at Rai Le Beach or Ao Nang, where there are many shops and restaurants ashore. (15 Miles)
Day 4: Sail south to Phi-Phi Islands.
The Phi Phi islands are some of the loveliest in Southeast Asia. These picture postcard islands offer the ultimate tropical getaway. Featuring classic tropical beaches, stunning rock formations and vivid turquoise waters teeming with colourful marine life. It is paradise perfected.
We recommend an overnight anchorage in the lively village of Ton Sai Bay, with a great choice of shops and restaurants ashore. (20 Miles)
Day 5: Take a day out exploring these beautiful islands enjoying what they have to offer.
Phi Phi is a group of six islands. The two main islands are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. The larger, inhabited Phi Phi Don attracts hundreds of visitors to stay on its lovely shores. The smaller uninhabited Phi Phi Leh hosts stunningly beautiful bays and beaches, including the world-famous Maya Bay. Here was the set where The Beach (with Leonardo Di Caprio) was filmed.
