The cruise through the magnificent Phang Nga area takes place in the Suwan Macha, an old Siamese junk boat. A very special and original experience on board a traditional boat mixing oriental service and charm with western comfort in one of Thailand’s most beautiful areas.

Suwan Macha sails between Phuket, Phang Nga Bay, Krabi and the Phi Phi islands. The boat has only eight guests on board so your experiences will be as personal as they are memorable. You will get the feeling of being on a journey of discovery, combined with everything you need. With a high level of service on board just lean back and enjoy the view from the seaside, a view many people only get to experience from their hotel.

How the trip is built:

Program A

Saturday: Phuket – Phang Nga (including dinner)

Pick up from the hotel at approximately 12 pm. Suwan Macha departs from the Yacht Haven Pier at 2 pm heading towards the towering islands in the Phang Nga Bay, where we will visit the popular James Bond Island. Back on board, you can watch a beautiful sunset. Dinner and overnight stay on board Suwan Macha.

Sunday: Phang Nga – Krabi (including breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Enjoy breakfast on the deck before sailing to the unique Sea Gypsy village, which is a spectacular trip into the mangroves and hidden lagoons.

We spend the night on the beautiful Suwan Macha.

Monday: Krabi – Phi Phi Island (including breakfast, lunch and dinner)

After breakfast we sail between the islands of Krabi and Phi Phi, where there is time for more snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing, before we go ashore to explore the Phi Phi Island. After dinner on board, sit back and enjoy the evening in the secluded bay in peace and quiet.
