Phuket Southeastern Islands Safari – Introduction
Duration: 6 Days / 5 Nights on Catamaran Amadeus
The area southeast of Phuket is geographically gorgeous, with all islands being beautiful and unique in their own way. There are many wonderful tourist attractions in the area southeast of Phuket with the “Emerald Cave” and the world famous Phi Phi islands amongst them. Embark on an epic cruise through the pristine waters of the Andaman Sea. Go snorkeling in crystal clear waters over colorful coral reefs with the outstanding biodiversity the region is known for. Arrive at “The Beach” film setting on Phi Phi Lei when the tour boats from Phuket have left and enjoy the breathtaking scenery in seclusion.
All of this on your own floating hotel with all amenities, including being pampered by a dedicated crew serving authentic Thai Cuisine and mouthwatering western dishes.
SE of Phuket Islands Safari – Detailed Itinerary
Day 1 – Start your South of Phuket Islands Safari in Chalong
Boarding time is 10:30 am at Chalong Pier in the SE of Phuket Island. While you are getting familiar with your new floating home, a 2 hour sail will bring you to Koh Maithon for lunch and the first dip in the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea.
The afternoon will be spent sailing our comfortable catamaran to Koh Phi Phi Don, arriving there before night fall. World renowned for its spectacular setting, Ton Sai Bay provides everything you can wish for giving yourself a treat, being it a relaxing massage, a pedicure or just a stroll around the bustling town.
Day 2 – Koh Lanta – Kantiang Beach, Swimming, Elephant Riding
The first sailing destination of the day is Kantiang Beach on Koh Lanta. This 1 km long stretch of sand is considered the best on the island. The backdrop of the beach is covered in lush green foliage inviting for a hike or even an elephant ride (not included in the charter price). Later in the day we will relocate further south to an even more secluded anchorage for the night
Day 3 – Emerald Cave, Snorkeling at Koh Rok Nok and Beach BBQ
Having breakfast underway we are sailing north to Koh Mook. This limestone island is home to the famous “Emerald Cave”. Here the kayaks come in handy to explore this about 80m long cave tunnel leading into a cathedral like lagoon. Do not forget to put a flash light into your travel luggage!
Next stop is Koh Rok Nok. The moorings here are set just in between the abundant coral gardens which make, in combination with the clear water inhabited by a myriad of colorful fish, for some of the best snorkeling in the Andaman Sea. The evening is spent ashore for a stunning sunset followed by a beach BBQ.
Day 4 – More first class snorkeling and “The Beach”
Starting off the day exploring some more snorkeling spots around Koh Rok Nok and continuing on the cruise to Koh Ha, famous for its dive sites. Not only the diving, but as well the snorkeling is excellent there. On the way there you can try your luck with some fishing. Some fresh Tuna is great for sashimi!
The final sailing destination of the day is Koh Phi Phi Leh, arriving there after the last of the tourist boats have left Maya Bay, where the movie “The Beach” was filmed in 1999. You can be sure to be spoiled with a spectacular sunset.
Day 5 – Sailing to Koh Racha Yai and some Dolphin spotting
We are using the morning to explore “The Beach” in all its beauty before we set sail to cover the distance to Koh Racha Yai. The body of water we are crossing provides a good chance of spotting some bottle nose dolphins underway, so we keep a keen lookout all the time.
Arriving at Racha Yai we have several bays to choose from with either excellent snorkeling possibilities or amazing beaches to laze on. And again, with your choice of sun downer watching a stunning sunset on our Phuket Sailing Cruise.
Day 6 – Sailing back to Phuket to end our SE of Phuket Island Safari
After a leisurely breakfast we head back to Ao Chalong, the starting and end point of our SE of Phuket Island Safari. ETA is around 11:00 am when you can start to make your way to your accommodation or the airport.
