Sailing Holidays

Sailing in Thailand

On Phuket Island visit Chalong Bay, an informal yachting community comprising of restaurants, shops, pubs, a yacht club and more. Spend a few days anchored off Phuket’s beaches, including Nai Harn and Kata on the island’s southwest shore.

Sailing north from Phuket, you enter Phang Nga Bay. Anchor between Koh Hong and Koh Yai and take a longtail boat to Koh Phing Kan, the world famous "James Bond Island", visiting  on your way Pan Yi, the local Gypsy village, built on stilts.

The unspoilt area around Krabi has some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the region. There are plenty of locations for a comfortable overnight stop around the Koh Dam Group, which offers scenic year round sailing. There are a number of restaurants around Ao Nang and in Krabi town itself, reached by longtail boat from Pra Nang.

Best time to travel to Phuket is during the cool NE monsoon season from November to March when the weather is sunny and dry with calm seas, though the NE winds are ideal for sailing and keeps things comfortable. The temperatures range from 24-32°C.

The hottest time is from April to May with temperatures 27-36°C and a lack of wind makes it feel very humid. From June through to August, the SW winds pick up, though sailing is still sheltered in most of the cruising area. Brief but heavy showers but the area is less crowded. During September and October there are heavy rains.

The area is tidal with a range of approximately 2m. Experience level 2.

"We have just returned from a fabulous 2 weeks sailing from Fethiye. It was easily the best experience we have had with perfect sailing weather throughout. The area around Fethiye Bay is lovely and there is plenty of historic and natural interest as well as beautiful clear water for swimming and great food. Our flotilla leaders, Mike and Debbie are the best we have come across and have to sing their praises! They have so much sailing experience and an excellent knowledge of the local area where they have developed good relationships with local people, that helped to make our visits to restaurants etc even better. We will definitely be visiting Turkey again-would love to sail with Mike and Debbie again-but have been impressed with the maturity, experience and humour of other Nautilus leaders on other trips as well, so, as they say, we’ll be back!"
