Sample Sailing Itinerary

10 & 14 Day Sample Itinerary Phuket and Phang Nga Bay 6 Day
Day 1
Arrival at catamaran located in Chalong Bay. The first stop of the journey to Ko Mai Thon, a small island with a great beach and fantastic snorkeling. The fishing enthusiasts can test their skill!
Day 2
Sail up to Phang Nga Bay, which is world famous for its limestone rocks and caves. Here the kayaks will come in handy to check out the caves, which open up inside the island into a "hong" which means "open room" inside the island.
Day 3
A pleasant sail along the limestone formations will take you to Railey Beach, world famous for rock climbing. Even if you have never tried that sport, instructors will show you the ropes.
Day 4
In the morning take a longtail boat to Krabi town which is the provincial capital of Krabi and from there you can take a bus to the Tiger cave monastery. Legend has it, that a tiger was protecting a monk here many years ago. Today it is a pilgrimage for the Thai people but also a sanctuary where you can relax. For the more energetic there is a walk up to the view point: 1260 steps!!! The view from up there is breathtaking – so is the walk!Back at Railey Beach it is cocktail time either at the Sunset Bar on the beach or on the catamaran.
Day 5 & 6
A short hop to Chicken Island for snorkeling and fishing. Then set sail and head for Phi Phi Island. This spectacular island has become very popular with tourists for it's scuba diving, night life, and massage. Maybe spend 2 nights here to absorb the beauty of the island. Anyone interested can try scuba diving, take a massage, go for manicure and pedicure and drop into some lively bars in the evening.
Day 7
A cruise to Ko Lanta will take you to the East side of the island to a very local village, which will hardly ever see any tourists. Here the locals are real locals: friendly and always ready for a chat (in Thai of course). Food here is great and cheap. You can also take a elephant ride. The countryside is wild and untamed; this is real Thailand!
Day 8 & 9
A visit to Ko Muk is a must when in the area. Emerald cave is probably the most beautiful Hong in Thailand and you can either swim into it or take a kayak. From there you can head to Ko Rok Nok, which is a National Park and at the ranger station.The snorkeling is probably the best here. Please note that you will be required to pay a per person national parks fee at Rok Nok. Spend the second day here for fishing and exploring here. Explore ashore. There is a walk up to a good lookout where you can take a photo of the catamaran and bay.
Day 10
Head back to Phi Phi Leh which is the island, where the movie "The Beach" was filmed. Enclosed by high steep cliffs except for the small entrance this is a truly stunning bay. Be carefull of the extensive coral reef and try and take a mooring but check the mooring is solid. Some are for longtails only and in shallow water
Day 11
Early departure for Chalong Bay, where the trip began. Maybe a stop on the way for lunch at Koh Miton is the winds good. A very nice bay on the south west side for the NE monsoon and a resort on the east side if breeses are light.

Day 9, 10 & 11
From Rok Nok sail to the Butang Islands, which are the closest to Malaysia. Only one of the islands is inhabited out of 14 of them. This is a fishing haven and perfect for snorkeling.
