Cruising the Thai Islands from Phuket


Day 1: Arrival Phuket

Welcome to Phuket. On arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel for the night. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm on Day 1. You can arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Just ask the hotel reception where and when it will take place, or check the notice boards. Your insurance details and next of kin information will be collected at this meeting, so please ensure you have these to provide to your leader. Known as one of the world’s finest beach destinations, this paradise of white sands, swaying palm trees and glittering seas offers a fantastic range of things to see and do. Night one of this adventure is spent at a relaxing resort and spa location in Patong, our hotel is located on the one of the most popular beaches the island has to offer. You might want to kick things off by sharing a cocktail with your group or taking a dip at the ocean. Enjoy the night life of this lively beach area, or enjoy a quiet meal under the tropical stars. The choice is yours.

Day 2: Embarkation in Phuket

After breakfast, we will get ready for the Group Meeting at 09.30hrs. Check out, then depart for Khao Rang mountain peak for the Phuket City Bird eye view, we will have as short coffee break here. Going down to Deebuk Road to experience the Chino-Portuguese Architecture, here’s the center of Phuket Old Town, brighten up your day with the Wall Painting Art on the street. Lunch will be on your own expense, our tour leader will suggest the authentic Southern Thai Food restaurants for you. We will be back on the minivan again for Panwa Deep Sea port to get on board.. attending a welcome meeting and safety briefing on board, set sail at 5 pm. Enjoy dinner on the way to Khao Lak, relaxing and taking in the sunset.

Day 3: Khao Lak

On arrival at Khao Lak, we will disembark for a day of land activities to help you get our land legs back. An optional visit to the Sai Rung (rainbow) waterfall is a chance for a fresh water swim so be sure to have your swim suit with you. Having met survivors of the 2004 tsunami at Ban Thalay Nok, the Ban Nam Khem tsunami memorial may seem that much more poignant. The wave shaped memorial represents the wall of water that invaded the beaches around Khao Lak on boxing day 2004, and features hundreds and hundreds of names of the tourists and locals that were lost that day. We finish our day around Khao Lak at the beautiful Bangsak beach. 

Day 4: Mu Koh Kam

Travel by longtail boat to Baan Talay Nok village. Enjoy a local-guided tour around the village, which was actually destroyed by 2004 tsunami. You'll hear some eye-opening stories of survival and how the village has recovered. For lunch, sit down with local families and dine on some tasty local dishes. Try your hand not only at soap-making but also at some cooking, preparing a local dish of grilled coconut wrapped in leaf. Tonight we'll enjoy under the stars at anchor near Mu Koh Kam.

Day 5: Mu Koh Kam

Today will be a day that reads like a page from the Swiss family Robinson. The Kam islands are undeveloped and rarely visited. Our last day of beach and sea activities will be spent in these idyllic surroundings. But unlike a castaway, you won't want for sustenance as your lunch will be a sumptuous beach BBQ. Tonight is spent at sea sailing to Koh Phayam.

Day 6: Ko Phayam

Arrive nice and early in Ko Phayam, the second largest Thai island in the Andaman Sea. Enjoy a day of swimming, snorkelling and a beach BBQ.  Overnight at anchor.

Day 7: Ko Surin Tai

Early morning sail to Ko Surin Tai. Visit the Moken Village for a tour with a local guide. This is the home of the Moken people, a Sea Gypsy ethnic group of Austronesian origin who still mostly live a seminomadic hunter-gatherer life (despite Thai and Burmese attempts to assimilate them into the wider culture). Notice their colourful poles, known as labong, which represent their ancestors. Lunch is included so you can enjoy some local cuisine. Later, in the afternoon, enjoy some snorkelling and relaxing on the beach. We will spend the night at anchor.

Day 8: Ko Surin Tai

Today is a day of pure relaxation. Enjoy the beautiful beaches and make use of all the toys that the Panorama II has onboard. Lunch will be a picnic on the beach. Your last chance to enjoy the warmth of the Andaman Sea. Tonight, the Captain will host a farewell dinner to toast your journey before sailing south towards Phuket.

Day 9: Disembark in Phuket

Arriving in Phuket early in the morning, disembark after breakfast as the adventure comes to an end.
