Sailing in Phang Nga Bay, Thailand

The incredible Islands of Phang Nga Bay are an unmissable part of any holiday to Thailand. However, you do have to share them with everyone else. On a live-aboard Dream Yacht Charter trip, you can spend either 3 or 7 nights sailing amongst the beautiful islands, arriving early in the morning or enjoying a sunset cocktail way after the day trippers have left. You can either charter your own boat or travel with a few like-minded couples on a more affordable ‘by the cabin’ shared catamaran charter.

Highlights

Sailing in Phang Nga Bay

Stay  

Step aboard the luxurious Dream 82 catamaran where your hosts will show you to your private cabin. The six cabins, sleeping up to 14 guests, are small but perfectly formed, all offering a double bed, ensuite shower room and air-conditioning.

Eat  

A continental breakfast, a delicious light lunch and sumptuous two course dinner are included and are prepared each day by the crew on-board using fresh local produce wherever possible. Enjoy a menu filled with delicious seafood, mouth-watering local fruit and authentic Thai and international flavours. Table wine, local aperitifs, fruit juices and sodas are also included.

Play  

Discover the hidden coves and idyllic beaches only a small boat can reach. Snorkel straight from the boat on pristine reefs, step off on the many islands of the bay, go trekking to waterfalls, kayak in unspoilt lagoons and stop off at some charming local villages, which offer unique lunchtime stops. At the end of the day enjoy sublime views, sundowner in hand and sample delicious Thai delicacies. Snorkelling equipment, kayaks and paddle boards are carried by the yacht.

We can also arrange both crewed yacht charters (exclusive use of a yacht including a skipper and chef) and bareboat charters (suitable for experienced sailors).
