No shopping crowds, no queues, no spending all day fretting over a turkey or whether auntie Beryl will get tipsy again.
Come escape with us and truly have a holiday - chill, swim with myriads of tropical fish, hike to visit the Dragons, kayak into Lost Worlds.
We'll be sailing around the lesser-known islands south of Phuket - some fun little beach bars, complete with massages and cocktails-in-the-pool.... some tiny, tranquil spots that only us yachties and the longtail boats can get to.
All our usual inclusions, of course - breakfasts and lunches, dinners onboard about half the time - all cooked by our amazing Thai chef, Nui ! We have kayaks, snorkel gear, "secret recipe" SeaScape pina coladas - and our local knowledge of where/when to go to miss the masses and see the stunning Thai scenery at it's best.
"Everyone must do this at least once in his/her lifetime. Amazing crew, relaxing experience. ... the first two days on the boat gave me the peace and help me to get rid of all the stress and tension..."Matteo G
Sailing out of "Touristville Phuket" - our first anchorages feel like slipping another universe; the gravity-defying limestone cliffs and islands create an eerie feeling of some sci-fi movie set.
Phang-Nga Bay is in fact home to the infamous James Bond island; but we won't be battling the hundreds of tourist boats there. We'll be exploring our own just-as-stunning and wonderfully tranquil spots!
We'll hike, swim and kayak into the other-worldly sea caves ("hongs"); anchor for lunch at tiny isolated coves, and feast on our Thai chef's wonderful home-cooking under the stars for dinners!
The southern islands are a total scenic contrast. The towering cliffs turn into postcard-worthy white sand beaches and palm trees; the tropical reefs create the most amazingly turquoise waters. We stay away from the overloaded (and over-priced) places like Phi Phi island; little beach bars and local cuisine are more our speed.
Even more unspoilt are the Marine National Park islands of Rok Nok - abounding with tropical fish life and multicoloured coral; the warm, clear waters perfect for snorkellers or newbie divers. Most other charter boats don't make it this far south; there's often just half a dozen yachts anchored here overnight.
Skippers Ray & Diane are getting to be seriously Old Salts; sailing in Thailand for 10 years..and twice that long in Greece! Our Nui has been cooking up a storm onboard for 6yrs, and entertaining our sailors with her ever-present smile and infectious laugh.
