The Island Cruises Yacht Charter Company is located, on the island Koh Tao, in the southern Gulf of Thailand. The Gulf of Thailand offers some of the most popular tropical destinations in the Land of the Smile, such as Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and the Angthong Marine Park. In more recent times, the 42 pristine unspoiled Islands forming the Angthong National Marine Park are vastly gaining on popularity as a sailing destination in Thailand. These islands also form the sailing grounds for our own 2 sailing yachts and our sailing dinghy, which are permanently stationed on Koh Tao.

We offer sailing safaris to the Angthong Marine Park and, if you’re up for it, the possibility to learn more about sailing in Thailand and participate in a sailing course, while discovering some cool spots around Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Koh Samui.
