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.



Bareboat Yacht Charter – Andaman Coast

Island Cruises bareboat charters give you the freedom to sail your own course with your own sailing yacht. We have a large selection of both monohulls and multihulls so that you are able to find the vessel that perfectly suits your needs. With our bareboat charters beginning from Phuket, the options for sailing are limitless.


Crewed Yacht Charter – Andaman Coast

Our crewed yacht charters are designed to make your own sailing adventure as easy and carefree as possible. Each charter comes with a highly experienced skipper and crew/chef. You can explore incredible destinations with our crewed charters including the Malaysian Coast, the Mergui Archipelago in Burma or even the Andaman Islands of India.



Crewed Yacht Charter – Gulf Coast

Island Cruises offers crewed charters in the Gulf of Thailand departing from the beautiful islands of Koh Samui and Koh Tao.

We have tailored sailing packages on both east and west coasts of Thailand, designed to give sailing experiences that are shorter, less costly and in some cases on a join in per person basis.

We can cater for up to 12 people on one of our famous Booze Cruises or we can create a romantic setting for couples wishing to experience a magnificent Thai sunset from one of our sailing yachts located in Koh Tao, Koh Pha Ngan, Koh Samui and Phuket. Sailing Thailand with Island Cruises is a magical, unforgettable experience.

Sailing in Thailand – Bareboat Charter Phuket


Overview of our Andaman Coast Bareboats and the SailingArea Around Phuket

Welcome to the Bareboat Charter Phuket corner of Island Cruises. In this section of our yacht presentation you will only find top class bareboats that are really available without skipper and/or engineer. Sufficient sailing qualification and experience in yacht handling is expected, and has to be provided, to charter these yachts as a bareboat.

Our bareboat monohull sailing yachts:

Hiring a bareboat in Thailand is quite different to what you are probably used to from the Caribbean or the Mediterranean Sea. While only in Greece alone, there are several thousand production boats of well known and reputable companies like Beneteau, Bavaria, Jeanneau or Hanse, available for bareboat yacht charter, the number of available charter yachts in Thailand is far lower. If you count all available bareboat charter yachts in entire Thailand together, you won’t even reach close to 3 digits. We have selected a range of bareboat yachts for you, that we believe are fair priced, well maintained and with as little hidden costs as possible in the pricing. We are visiting all yachts listed regularly ourselves.

Our bareboat multihull sailing yachts:

Why charter these yachts with Island Cruises?

We represent these yachts as a yacht charter broker. Our services are completely for free to you! All costs for our yacht charter services are carried by the owners of the yachts. Since we do not own the bareboats listed on this page, we are not biased towards any particular boat, therefore we are able to recommend which bareboat would be best suitable for your personal holiday. We are always up to date for any special price offers that might come up and we can get you the best deals on bareboat charters in Thailand! If we really should miss something – our charter yachts are coming with best price guarantee – we will match any valid better offer!

5 Day Dinghy Sailing Course Koh Tao

Introduction 5 day Dinghy Sailing Course

Zuma sailing dinghy in front of Sairee Beach Koh Tao

Zuma sailing dinghy in front of Sairee Beach Koh Tao

Sailing is the most fun sport you can have on the water! Catch the wind and sail away! No noise, no engine, no pollution, just you and the sea. Stop and relax wherever you want, explore the underwater world on a snorkeling stop and enjoy another sunny day on the ocean …but first you have to learn sailing!

The goal of this five day sailing course is to get you completely familiar and comfortable with all aspects of sailing a small boat all by yorself. This includes rigging, launching, sailing solo, derigging as well as the different parts of a sail boat, sailing terminology and sail theory! The course will be taught on either a Zuma / Laser (single sail, monohull), or a Hobie Getaway (larger catamaran with two sails) depending on class size. All boats are extremely safe, responsive and a lot of fun to learn on. All you need to bring for this course is your swim trunks, sunscreen and a shirt that can get wet. Plan 4 – 5 hours every day for the course including transfers from our teaching facility to the boats.
