Day 3

Koh Lanta – Koh Ngai – Koh Muk (inc. Emerald Cave)

Sail Time: 2 hours to Koh Ngai / 1 hour to Koh Muk

After breakfast we make our way round the point of Koh Lanta where there is a cluster of Islands (Koh Ngai / Koh Kradan / Koh Chuak / Koh Muk) all of which offer some fantastic snorkelling. Before the sun sets, we arrive at the Emerald Cave in Koh Muk, where we swim through an 80m cave, which then opens into a hidden lagoon within the Island. Breath-taking and spectacular, it’s the perfect end to the day.

Day 4

Koh Muk – Koh Liang – Koh Petra

Sail Time: 3½ hours to Koh Liang / 1 hour to Koh Petra

We then make our way to the very impressive Koh Liang, beautiful beaches, tall limestone cliffs and a few caves. The evening is then spent in the completely deserted island of Koh Petra at the base of its awe-inspiring tall limestone cliffs.

Day 5

Koh Petra – Koh Tarutao (inc. Crocodile Cave)

Sail Time: up to 4 ½ hours

Leaving Koh Petra after breakfast, we make our way to Koh Tarutao. The largest Island within the Butang Archipelago, this Island is dense with rainforest, scattered with long pristine beaches, and other than a few Ranger stations and camp sites, it’s uninhabited. For those feeling energetic, you can rent some push bikes here for ฿250 per person and explore to your hearts content. With paved roads, it’s a very safe way to really see this Island.

The main attraction here though, has to the be the huge cave system. With a Dinghy drive up the Mangrove estuary, and then a quick 200m rope pull on a floating pontoon, you are then taken away to another world full of spectacular crystallized rock formations / stalactites and stalagmites.

Day 6

Koh Tarutao – Koh Chuku & Koh Tanga

Sail Time: 2 ½ hours

Depending on tides, and access to the Caves, this morning gives us another opportunity to see the caves, if it’s not possible the day before. However, once explored, we take a short trip to Koh Tanga & Koh Chuku. Both beautiful snorkelling sites, but more impressive is the size of Koh Chuku, surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters and all circumnavigable within a 30-minute walk.

Day 7

Koh Chuku – Koh Lipe

Sail Time: 2 hours

This day we will spend mostly sailing as depending on the winds it will take 6-8 hours to sail to Koh Rok our overnight stop on this leg of the journey. Usually we catch some nice fish during this sail. We will have time to explore and enjoy this wonderful location.

Day 8

Koh Lipe – Koh Butang

Sail Time: 1½ hours

Only a short sail away, we move away from the populated island of Koh Lipe to the beautiful, picturesque and tranquil Island on Koh Butang. Along the way, we stop off at Koh Sawang – a group of very small Islands, that offer a great opportunity to snorkel, circumnavigate a slalom of Islands via kayak or Paddleboard, before moving to our overnight stop – with untouched beaches, fantastic rock formations and dense jungle coverage. Night time on deck, watching the starlit skies, in water flat as glass, is the best way to peacefully end a fun filled day.

Day 9

Koh Butang – Koh Rawi

Sail Time: 20 mins

An even shorter crossing to Koh Rawi – here we can take a jungle trek into the lush rainforest, following a fresh water stream up into the hill to bath in some refreshingly chilled fresh water rock pools. Fear not, we will always have our private guides on hand for this – a couple of well-behaved dogs owned by the Rangers – always waiting on the beach for the chance to go for a walk. The afternoon is spent chilling in some shallow water, turquoise waters and white sand bottoms. Sit back, relax, and enjoy forgetting what time of day it is!

Day 10

Koh Rawi – Koh Rok

Sail Time: 7½ hours

Time has come to start heading back up to Phuket. But fear not, we still have some breath-taking spots to visit. However, to make the most of the day, we leave before sunrise to ensure we have enough time in the afternoon to swim and relax. But the highlight of this day must be waking up to watch the sunrise, while under sail. Bring your bedding on deck and have a lazy morning under the stars.

Day 11

Koh Rok

Sail Time: N/A

As a favourite destination of ours, we spend 2 nights and 1 whole day here at Koh Rok. Take the time to snorkel the beautiful reefs, have some family crab races on the pristine beaches, and then in the afternoon, take a hike up the hill to some spectacular viewpoints from which you can watch the sunset in absolute tranquility.

Day 12

Koh Rok – Koh Haa

Sail Time: 3½ hours

Leaving Koh Rok early, our plan is to have breakfast at Koh Haa. With the best Scuba Diving and snorkelling available, these 5 rocks/small islands sticking out of the water in the middle of nowhere are the perfect backdrop. If we can, and weather allows, we do our best to stay here for a night.

Day 13

Koh Haa – Koh Mai Thon

Sail Time: 6 hours

Taking full advantage of having these wonderful Islands to ourselves before the Scuba Diving boats arrive around 9.30/10am – wake up to realise you’re in the middle of nowhere, with the best snorkeling right below the boat. Once the Islands become busier, we make our way to Koh Mai Thon, for our last night. Logistically, it’s the perfect Island due to its proximity to Phuket, but more special is the pod of Dolphins that live here. Best times to see them are always at sunset or sunrise, of which we’ll be on lookout for both. A memorable end indeed, should they show themselves!

Day 14

Koh Mai Thon – Phuket

Sail Time: 1 hour
Disembark Time: 12 noon

If we haven’t seen the Dolphins the night before, we take another look in the morning. Once we have our final breakfast onboard, it’s a quick shot to Phuket, allowing plenty of time to pack, and say our final goodbyes. There’s no stress with this day. Very easy going and relaxed.
