10 Day Cruise
Day 1: Arrival by plane and transfer to the yacht. The first stop of our journey will take us to Ko Mai Thon, a small island with a great beach and fantastic snorkeling. The fishing enthusiasts can test their skill!
Day 2: Sail up to Phang Nga Bay, which is world famous for its limestone rocks and caves. Here the kayaks will come in handy to check out the caves, which open up inside the island into a “hong” which means “open room” inside the island.
Day 3: A pleasant sail along the limestone formations will take us to Railey Beach, world famous for rock climbing. Even if you have never tried that sport, an instructor will show you the ropes.
Day 4: This morning we take a longtail boat to Krabi town which is the provincial capital of Krabi and from there a bus will take us to Tiger cave monastery. Legend has it, that a tiger was protecting a monk here many years ago. Today it is a pilgrimage for the Thai people but also a sanctuary where you can relax. For the more energetic there is a walk up to the view point: 1260 steps!!! The view from up there is breathtaking – so is the walk! Back at Railey Beach it is cocktail time either at the Sunset Bar on the beach or on the yacht.
Day 5 & 6: A short hop to Chicken Island for snorkeling and fishing. We then set sail and head for Phi Phi Island. This spectacular island has become very popular with tourists for it’s scuba diving, night life, and massages. We will spend 2 nights here to absorb the beauty of the island. Anyone interested can try scuba diving, take a massage, go for manicure and pedicure and drop into some lively bars in the evening.
Day 7: A cruise to Ko Lanta will take us to the East side of the island to a very local village, which will hardly ever see any tourists. Here the locals are real locals: friendly and always ready for a chat (in Thai of course). Food here is great and cheap. We will go here for an elephant ride. The countryside is wild and untamed; this is real Thailand!
Day 8 & 9: A visit to Ko Muk is a must when in the area. Emerald cave is probably the most beautiful Hong in Thailand and you can either swim into it or take a kayak. From here we head to Ko Rok Nok, which is a National Park and at the ranger station we will set up a BBQ on the beach. The snorkeling is probably the best here. We spend the second day here for fishing and exploring here. Beach Volleyball, Badminton and Frisbee tournaments are on the agenda!
Day 10: We will be heading back to Phi Phi Leh which is the island, where the movie “The Beach” was filmed. Enclosed by high steep cliffs except for the small entrance this is a truly stunning bay.
Day 11: Early departure for Chalong Bay, where the trip began.
14 Day Cruise
Day 9, 10 & 11: From Rok Nok we sail to the Butang Islands, which are the closest to Malaysia. Only one of the islands is inhabited out of 14 of them. This is a fishing haven and perfect for snorkeling. On Ko Lipe live the Moken Sea Gypsies which have lived of the sea for thousands of years.
Day 12: On the sail back to Rok Nok we will try to catch some Sailfish which are plenty about these islands. A relaxing evening on the yacht or action on the beach – it is up to you!
Day 13: We will be heading back to Phi Phi Leh which is the island, where the movie “The Beach” was filmed. Enclosed by high steep cliffs except for the small entrance this is a truly stunning bay.
Day 14: Departure to Ko Racha a small island just South of Phuket island, but great for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Day 15: Return to Chalong Bay and transfer to the airport or hotel.
