Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1: Phuket

Location: Phuket

Accommodation: Overnight boat

Meals Included: dinner

Sa-wat dee! Welcome to Phuket, Thailand’s largest and most popular island. Phuket is an island full of sunshine exotica and modern pizazz. It has excellent beaches, a huge array of restaurants serving local flavours, comfortable hotels, bars and shopping options – so you might want to consider arriving a couple of days early. Today, be ready to board and meet your skipper and group at 1 pm. After an orientation of the yacht, you’ll begin your journey across the Andaman Sea. Your skipper will select an island to anchor for the night where you’ll have time to enjoy a dip in the clear water, followed by a relaxing dinner on board and a beautiful sunset.

Day 2: Koh Phanak - Koh Hong – Koh Phak Bia

Location: Koh Phanak - Koh Hong – Koh Phak Bia

Accommodation: Overnight boat

Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch, dinner

After breakfast on board, you’ll head to Koh Phanak, where you have the option to visit the ice cream cave, full of stalagmites and stalactites. You’ll be transferred to the small beach via a dinghy, from where you’ll explore the ice cream-like structures in the cave. Next, head to Koh Hong, where you’ll be given an instructional briefing for a kayak or paddleboard trip to the island. Enjoy a delicious Thai lunch on board when you return and then head to Koh Phak Bia, where you’ll spend the evening. You can swim, kayak or paddleboard, or just kick back on the yacht and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The sunset here is not to be missed! Your chef will tantalise your taste buds with an amazing Thai dinner this evening.

Day 3: Koh Kai (Chicken Island) - Railay Beach, Krabi

Location: Koh Kai (Chicken Island) - Railay Beach, Krabi

Accommodation: Overnight boat

Meals Included: breaksfast, lunch

This morning after breakfast, you’ll sail to Chicken Island – with its distinctive bird-like shape and bright blue waters full of diverse marine life, this is the perfect spot to enjoy some snorkelling. After you snorkel and have some lunch, sail towards Railay Beach in the late afternoon. There will be plenty of time to relax at the beach, read a good book in the sun or walk the coastline. Railay Beach has some great restaurants, too, so tonight you can join the group for an optional dinner on the beachfront at one of the local favourites that features live music. Later, head back to the yacht which will be anchored in the bay, via a longtail boat – a real Thai experience!

Day 4: Koh Phi Phi

Location: Koh Phi Phi

Meals Included: breaksfast

After breakfast on board, head towards the most talked about place in Thailand, Koh Phi Phi. For many, this is the iconic image of Thailand – two islands connected by a great arc of pure white sand, striking limestone cliffs and unbelievably inviting water. Travellers are drawn to the island thanks to its colourful marine life, as well as the array of shops, bars, restaurants and fire spectacles on the beach. You will arrive at approximately 12 pm. This is where this Andaman seafaring odyssey comes to an end. Afterwards, you're free to explore all that Phi Phi has to offer or to continue your onward journey home.

Included Activities

    Accommodation

    • This trip is accommodated on board a 58 foot, twin-hulled sailing catamaran. Our boat is equipped with 1 x twin-share, 2 x double-share and 2 x quad-share cabins each with en-suite bathrooms and fans.
    • ***Please note if you are a couple and book into a quad cabin you will be split by gender into a male share and female share cabin. There are times where we may have two couples booked in a quad and we can ask if they would be happy to share [with another couple]. We will not willingly book a male or female into the same cabin without first notifying and checking with all travellers involved.
    • If you are a couple and do not wish to be split into gender specific cabins we recommend you look at booking a twin share cabin***
    • Fresh water is available for showers, and toilets are either electronic or the hand pump variety. The boat is equipped with a motor for times when the wind is not sufficient for sailing. Our boats are real catamarans and this is a real sailing trip. Catamarans are designed to keep sleeping areas to the absolute minimum of space, while maximising common areas as much as possible.
    • The skipper will allocate the rooms on arrival to the boat and single travellers will be paired up with another passenger of the same sex, this may mean sharing a double mattress. The skipper will also be sharing the catamaran's facilities and sleeping quarters.
    • While some may find the living quarters quite close, those who are looking to revel in the adventure and exhilaration of an authentic sailing trip usually find any discomfort is more than made up for by the spirit of this sailing experience.
    • Please note space is at a premium on board a yacht so we highly recommend that travellers bring a soft sided bag or backpack.
    • ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION:
    • Please note that the majority of our sailing trips start and/or finish at a marina or port. For most of our destinations, we can provide transfers between the airport/hotel and the port/marina. Please check the joining and finish point information in the trip notes for details.

    Transport

    • This is a sailing adventure so our time is spent on board a catamaran yacht. We tend to use the same vessel for the duration of our season however there could be times when we do need to swap boats due to maintenance issues.
    • You may be asked to assist on-deck, particularly when coming into or leaving port. No experience is necessary, but getting to know some 'sailing language' might help to get you into the spirit of the adventure.

    North American Adventure

    12-Oct-2021

    This was my first international solo trip, but I never felt “alone” - there was always someone to go shopping, hike, or grab a quick bite with. The itinerary was a great balance between organized activities, while still allowing free time for exploring. Each location was unique and charming in its own way. Spending the night in the holy city of Moulay Idriss and wandering the winding streets of Chefchaouen were especially memorable. Thank you Mustapha and Intrepid for an incredible adventure!

    Amazing Guatemala and beyond tour with Intrepid

    13-Dec-2022

    Did Guatemala and beyond trip in November 22. It was amazing, we were so well looked after by our guide Aura. She was very knowledgeable and during our bus trips she gave us the history of the 4 countries. The border crossings can be tricky but handled very well by our guide. We saw all the most interesting and beautiful places. The hotels were lovely comfortable colonial style. I will travel with intrepid again

    Wonderful Croatian tour

    02-Dec-2022

    Our tour guide,Tamara, was the highlight of our Explore Croatia tour. She was knowledgeable, organized, and so kind and fun. Croatia is a beautiful country. I loved the people, the scenery, the food, the history. I hope to go back one day. Intrepid was perfect for me. There was group time and there was plenty of free time. It wasn’t a luxury tour but all of our accommodations were clean and safe. The dinner in Hvar was SO special!

    The trip was amazing, everything was well planned out & there wasn't any issues. The tour guide was very friendly and made the experience fun. During the trip I didn't have to worry about safety as we were never put in harms way. I would definitely recommend & do again.

    North Morocco Adventure

    25-Oct-2021

    Touring the beautiful North of Morocco I learned far more than I’d anticipated in this 9 day tour. Interesting sights to see, with knowledgeable local guides, this tour provides a great balance of exposure to a different culture with ample time for relaxation. Chefchaouen is an absolute highlight, & not a place many Morocco trips of this kind go to. Loved it!

    Essential Morocca

    21-Oct-2021

    Essential Morocco was an absolute dream. Every single day had such informative walking tours and tours of local facilities. Whether it was dinner with a local family or visiting a pottery factory, I learned so much about Moroccan culture. The accommodations were safe and I felt secure the entire 11 days. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without one person. That person is Youssef. If you are coming to Morocco with Intrepid and you don’t request Youssef, you’re doing it wrong. Words cannot describe how incredible of a guide he is. There were 3 of us on our trip of 18-29 year olds and he made us all feel so welcome and safe all the time. Whether that is cracking jokes on long drives or giving us the itinerary for the next day, Youssef ensured we felt respected and seen.

    Absolutely superb leader - knowledgeable. fun, safety conscious. Group of 15 travellers from 5 countries who bonded into a solid team. In addition to a fantastic itinerary, our leader’s love of karaoke made the trip unforgettable. It even inspired a song written as a tribute to him.
