Phuket, Lets go Sailing
Koh Hong means ‘Room Island’, named because it’s surrounded by big limestone rock formations that give it an enclosed feel. So it’s kind of like swimming around your living room… but with less coffee tables.
Day 1 - Phuket
"Sail away, sail away, sail away," are the lyrics to an Enya song. They also give a pretty good idea of what you'll be doing for the next week. Drop anchor in front of a private beach.
Meet your skipper and other group members at 1PM ready to board.Sail towards Ko Rang Yai island where we will drop anchor in front of a private beach. A great place to ease in to life on board with a dip in the water, dinner on board and a beautiful sunset.Dinner
Day 2 - Phang Nga Bay
Live out your James Bond fantasties at Phang Nga Bay, where Man with the Golden Gun was filmed. The Bond Girl in this film, Mary Goodnight, has been described as "the stupidest MI6 agent of all". Not exactly Pussy Galore then.
After breakfast explore the famous Phang Nga Bay (where the James Bond movie 'Man with the Golden Gun' was made)
Enjoy lunch among remote islands with gorgeous kayaking and swimming spots
Tonight anchor in the north-east part of the bay between Koh Klui and Koh Chang - a hideaway well off the beaten trackBreakfast | Lunch
Day 3 - Koh Hong & Railay
Today will mostly be about experiencing paradise to the fullest. Koh Hong is kind of like a tangible, beach-fronted heaven, but you don't need to be religious or dead to experience it. Booyah.
Sail to Koh Hong
Explore its sea caves on a dinghy
After a trip around Koh Hong stop on a tropical beach for swimming and snorkelling.
Sailing day ends in Railay
Watch the sunset and then dine ashore
Enjoy the nightlifeBreakfast | Lunch | Dinner
Day 4 - Koh Phi Phi
Koh Phi Phi is a real backpacker's haunt. Indulge in the backpacker way of life as much or as little as you want, then escape back to your lovely boat when you've had enough. Aaaaaah.
Sail to the island group Koh Phi Phi
Stop at Phi Phi Don with its colourful marine life, shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles
Head on to Phi Phi Le in the afternoon and visit ‘Maya Beach‘ (from The Beach)Breakfast | Dinner
Day 5 - Koh Yao Yai
Today you will mostly be sailing, swimming, sunbaking and indulging in other such island pursuits. Wrap it all up with a bonfire on the beach and think about Tom Hanks and his beloved Wilson while having the time of your life.
Set sail early today, stop for a swim.
Approach Koh Yao Yai in the afternoon where you'll find lonely beaches surrounded by mangroves.
Swim and canoe and go on an optional excursion over the island gives to see traditional Thai life.
Have dinner on land and finish the day with a bonfire
Moor in the bay over nightBreakfast | Lunch
Day 6 - Koh Racha
Perfectly clear water is the ideal water for diving and snorkelling. Lucky, then, that Koh Racha has tonnes of it. Don your Speedos and breeze over the (perfectly clear) underwater world, then relax on the beach like a non gender-specific royal figure.
Sail south east to Koh Racha, the ideal place for snorkelling
You can enjoy optional water activities or a walk across the islandBreakfast | Lunch | Dinner
