After arriving in Phuket on day 2, you’ll make your way to Yacht Haven marina, located 15 minutes from the airport. Here a yacht charter will be waiting for you and 15 other guests. On board, you’ll find complimentary watersports equipment, which you’ll have access to throughout the tour.
The boat will sail to the island of Koh Kai on the morning of day 3. Its offshore reefs are teeming with exotic fish and colorful coral, making it one of the area’s top snorkeling spots. Just south of here, Phi Phi Don looks like it was lifted straight from a postcard. The tropical landscape boasts sun-splashed beaches, emerald waters, and stunning rock formations.
The uninhabited island of Phi Phi Leh is the next stop. It’s home to Maya Bay, a crescent-shaped body of water sheltered by limestone cliffs on three sides. It served as the shooting location for The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Later in the afternoon the boat will dock at the village of Tonsai Bay, where you can enjoy local seafood and browse homemade jewelry. Days 5 and 6 include stops at several karst islands. On one of them, Koh Hong, you’ll get the chance to explore a spectacular saltwater lagoon.
For an extra fee, you can take part in one of the area’s can’t-miss opportunities—riding on the back of an elephant. On the island of Ao Nang, a jungle trek on one of these majestic creatures will take you past lush foliage and exotic wildlife.
On day 8, the boat sets sail for Koh Yang, where you can see scenery made famous in the 1974 James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun. The final stop before returning to Yacht Haven is Koh Panyi, a floating village built on stilts, where traditional fisherman and artisans can be seen plying their trades.
