Our trip starts in Yacht Haven/Phuket.
We sail on spacious, comfortable catamarans.
As the first stop of our trip we will explore the spectacular Phang Ngha Bay. The steep and bizarre rock islands are mostly interspersed with caves and some of them even hide a small lagoon inside. We will also visit the famous James Bond Rock on Koh Ping Kan Island. We continue via Krabi to Phi Phi Island, where we will enjoy the variety of exotic Thai cuisine and the amusement of a semi-touristic infrastructure.
Right next to the busier and larger Phi Phi Don Island is the uninhabited Phi Phi Le Island with its breathtaking rock formations, the Viking Cave and the famous Maya Beach, which we will also visit before dropping anchor in the turquoise waters off the islands of Koh Ha Yai and Koh Rok. These islands are largely uninhabited, so we have paradise for us. From here we'll be heading south - into the Butang Group. This group consists of seven granite islands, only the smallest of which offers a tourist infrastructure. The other islands are mostly uninhabited but enchant with their beauty, the snow-white beaches and the lush vegetation everyone who comes close to them.
On Koh Lipe, one of the smallest islands, there are no hotels or mass tourism as you know it from Phuket, but there are small guest houses, nice restaurants, beach bars and everything else you need. In contrast to this is Koh Tarutao - it is the largest island in the group and a nature reserve with lavish vegetation, exotic wildlife and a marine underwater world that is second to none.
On our way back north we will visit the island of Koh Muk with the famous Emerald Cave. From there we continue via Koh Kradan to Koh Lanta. In Phi Phi Island we will stop a second time to take provisions and water on board before we slowly return to Phuket.
