Thailand Yacht Charter

What is the best route to sail Thailand?

On a serene sailing charter in Thailand, there are several routes you can take to explore this stunning destination in all its glory. Much like in all our sailing locations, such as St Lucia, Belize and Croatia, the route you sail during your Thailand yacht charter is entirely your choice.

The passages can be confined to the sheltered waters off the east coast of Phuket, or you can venture farther into the Andaman Sea to the picturesque Phi Phi Islands. The west coast of Phuket with its stunningly beautiful beaches and waterfront resorts, as well as the offshore islands in the Similan and Surin groups are an option during the northeast monsoon season.

When is the best time to sail in Thailand?

As a year-round sailing destination, our base is open 365 days a year for relaxing Thailand yacht charters. However, many sailors prefer to set sail on the open waters between November-April, during the northeast monsoon season.

This makes a Thailand sailing vacation the perfect option for a Winter getaway where you can escape the cold and kick the New Year off in style, much like many of our Caribbean destinations such as the BVI and Antigua.
If you’re looking for the perfect Summer sailing vacation, take a look at our Mediterranean yacht charters.

How easy is it to island hop in Thailand?

Home to over 1400 islands, each one unique and equally stunning, Thailand is one of the world’s best destinations for exploring and island hopping.
Whether you spend your days discovering the wonders of the main islands, such as Ko Samui and Ko Lanta, or more secluded, uninhabited islands, we know you’ll have a brilliant sailing vacation in Thailand. Our Thailand sailing itinerary takes you to some of the must-visit spots, including Koh Roi, the Phi Phi Islands, and Phuket.

How many days in Thailand is enough?

When you book your Thailand sailing charter with The Moorings, you have the freedom to choose the length of your vacation, depending on your requirements. The length may differ depending on whether you want to spread your excursions and activities out with lots of downtime in between.
We have carefully crafted 7-day Thailand itineraries for both sailing yachts and power yachts as we think this is the perfect amount of time for exploring the many treasures of Phuket and beyond.

What are the best things to do in Thailand?

  • Sunbathe on the golden sands of some of Thailand’s best beaches, including Ton Sai Beach which is most easily accessed by boat.
  • Moor up in Phuket and visit The Great Buddha of Phuket, a breathtaking monument and the third largest statue in Thailand.
  • Unleash your inner underwater adventurer and go scuba diving around the Similan Islands, world-renowned as one of the best diving spots in the world.*
  • Spend your afternoon snorkeling around the sensational coral reefs at Koh Dam Group (Chicken Islands). If you love spending time in the water, take a look at our water sports options.
  • Admire the beautiful, unspoilt scenery of Phang Nga Bay, a marine national park.

*Clients must carry a PADI open water or equivalent qualification to be able to dive. Unqualified divers can do courses or resort dives. Prices range from center to center, but it usually costs between 2,500 Baht and 3,500 Baht per person for two dives and lunch. If a client wishes to dive while chartering with The Moorings, we recommend H2o Sportz.
