With an abundance of islands fringed by shimmering white sand beaches and palm trees, a Thailand yacht charter entices travelers world-wide with its extraordinary snorkeling and diving, clandestine caves to explore, calm aquamarine waters, and friendly, welcoming culture. The scattering of islands lends itself perfectly to yacht exploration, allowing you to find coves and inlets beyond the well-known attractions, for an exclusive tour of this impressive region.

The exotic Far East offers a balanced fusion of mouth-watering cuisine and high-end luxury along with tranquil retreats and secluded hideaways, all with influences from Chinese and Indian cultures. Within this land, you can cruise to your own secret beach one day, and then climb to Island Peaks the next. Snorkel in a colorful reef by day and indulge in fresh local cuisine by night.  The options are yours to explore.

The largest island, Phuket, is rising in popularity as a yachting mecca, due in large part to new legislation granted in 2015 that opened the gates for superyacht charters from afar. It also doesn’t hurt that just south of Phuket lie hundreds of smaller islands, many of which are uninhabited and perfect for exploring by yacht charter.

This suggested itinerary explores along Thailand’s west coast and the islands in the southern Andaman Sea. With diverse landscapes, stunning coastal scenery, majestic Buddhist temples, and ethereal cultural experiences, this journey is meant to awaken the senses and renew the soul.
