Thailand Island Cruises & Yacht Charters (Phuket & Andaman Sea)
Phuket‘s white sandy beaches peppered with dramatic rock formations are an escapist’s dream, one of Southeast Asia’s most celebrated beach destinations and the perfect base for island hopping in the Andaman sea. Visit the stunning six Phi Phi Islands, which feature limestone mountains, cliffs, caves and white-sand beaches home to an abundance of coral and marine life. Farther east, the coastline of Krabi, features hundreds of islands, mostly uninhabited, and a lure for visitors with their white-sand beaches, coral reefs, and intricate cave systems. To their north, Phang-Nga Bay—the so-called James Bond Island, having featured in the movie ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’—is another popular stopping point.
Northwest of Phuket, the exquisite Similan Islands with their tropical jungle beauty, white sand beaches and turquoise waters are widely considered amongst Thailand’s most popular snorkeling and scuba diving destinations, but there are also opportunities to enjoy bird watching and jungle walks. The National Marine Park is abundant in gorgeous coral reefs peppered with rainbow colored fish as well as deep water boulder formations that attract large pelagic fish such as whale sharks and manta rays.
To the south, the Racha (or Raya) Islands are known as among the best diving, snorkeling and fishing destinations in Thailand. Racha Yai is one of the most beautiful, a tropical island and true diver’s paradise featuring hard coral reefs, colorful shallow water coral gardens, and even a number of small wrecks. Much farther south, with a colourful history and gorgeous white beaches, Koh Lipe and the Butang archipelgo, next to the Malay Peninsula, are slightly off the beaten track but a wonder to behold. Situated on the outskirts of the Tarutao National Marine Park and originally only inhabited by Sea Gypsies, the Chao Ley, Koh Lipe is a haven for snorkeling and diving away from the crowds.
Discover the spectacular natural beauty, green-clad limestone islands, and amazing dive sites of them all with a Thailand island cruise by private yacht charter from Phuket.
