Phuket – Racha Yai – Racha Noi – Phi Phi Island – Phuket (4d 3n)
Day 1. 09:00-09:30 you are picked up at the lobby of your hotel and drive to Chalong Bay, where the yacht is waiting for you. You are welcomed by the captain and crew of Cataleya and after a short boat briefing and cabin allocations we set sails and head to Koh Racha Yai, which is great for snorkeling. In the afternoon we sail to Ko Racha Noi and hope to catch some Tuna on the way, as this is a famous fishing area. Stay in Racha Noi for the night.
Day 2. After breakfast and a morning swim we have a longer sail to Phi Phi island, which will take around 5 hours. Again a good chance to catch some nice fish for lunch or dinner. At Monkey beach we check out the crab eating macaques. We then proceed to Tonsai Bay (Koh Phi Phi Don) where we stay for the night. This is a great opportunity to go on shore to explore the island, sip a cocktail on one of the beach bars or go for a massage.
Day 3. We depart after breakfast and visit Koh Phi Phi Ley, where we can see Maya Bay (“the beach”). After some nice snorkeling and lunch we proceed to Koh Mai Ton for the night. This is one of our favorite spots for spotting dolphins! Pods of 20 to 30 of them stay there year round and it is a pleasure watching these playful animals.
Day 4. We return back to Chalong bay, where we arrive around 11:30 am for your departure.[one_half]
Phuket – Koh Khai – Koh Yao – Phang Nga Bay – Phuket (4d 3n)
Day 1. 09:00-09:30 you are picked up at the lobby of your hotel and driven to Chalong Bay where the yacht is waiting for you. You are welcomed by the captain and crew of Cataleya and after a short boat briefing and cabin allocations we set sails and head East to Koh Kai, a small sandy island with the first opportunity to jump into the clear waters and go snorkeling. We stay here for lunch and in the afternoon we set sail for Koh Yao Noi where we will spend the evening.
Day 2. After breakfast we head even further East to Koh Hong which belongs to Krabi province, there the kayaks come in handy and you can explore the hong (a room inside the island) and even paddle around the corner to one of the beaches. We spend some time here to enjoy the peace and have lunch on the beach buffet style, prepared by our on board cook. After lunch we sail to Koh Panak for some more kayaking experience, here the hongs are deep within the island and we need flash lights to see in the dark. There are several caves to be visited all of them featuring stalactites and stalagmites. We sail on to Koh Hong (the one which belongs to Phang Nga Bay and stay there for the night.
Day 3. Koh Hong is yet another kayaking high spot with its nooks and crannies and hidden gems. You are surrounded by limestone islands and it is a stunning scenery. After breakfast we sail to James Bond island, famous because parts of the movie “The man with the golden gun” was filmed here. After the visit to this island, we head South to Koh Naka Yai, which has a nice beach, perfect for checking out the shells which might have been washed up with the tide.
Day 4. We depart in the morning after a morning swim and breakfast and head for Chalong Bay, where we will arrive at 11:30 for your departure.
