Sailing and Yachting on Phang Nga Bay
and near Phuket Island, Thailand

Phuket is the place to go for great sailing adventures, as Phuket offers the best facilities, most scenic sights and breathtaking islands in crystal clear waters. You can charter a yacht, join a crew or even sail one of your own, the choice is endless.

Every year several racing events are held on the island while the annual Phuket King's Cup Regatta is the largest and longest established. It was inaugurated to mark the birthday of His Majesty the King of Thailand and is now part of the Omega Asian Yachting Circuit. The regatta is held in December. Other events include the Andaman Sea Rally, the Phan Nga Bay Regatta and the Phuket Race Week.


The most comfortable way to enjoy the clear seas is to join one of the cruises which are on offer like:

 Magical Phang Nga Bay Cruise

Sunset Cruise

Tropical Island Cruise

If you prefer to be your own skipper and sail around where the wind blows you, just charter one of the yachts available for bareboat charter - choices reach from small monohulls to catamarans and big yachts.

 - The law states that if they choose to leave Thailand by any other method, the permit to stay will automatically be canceled , and they will be
