Yacht charter in Thailand is popular in and around Phuket, including the beautiful stop at Phang Nga Bay. The scenery is impossibly majestic. Huge cliffs tower overhead from the water, which appears in shades of blue and green thanks to reflections from above. In some spots, swimmers can see fish and coral through the clear water without wearing a snorkeling mask, and some of the cliffs have caves at their bases that you can explore aboard your charter yacht’s tender or paddleboard. James Bond Island (named for its appearance in the film “The Man with the Golden Gun”) is a wonderful place to kayak. The beauty is protected as a national park. While there are souvenir shacks, they are kept to one area with the rest of the location remaining pristine for you to explore. Some of the best beaches you will find during a Thailand charter are in the Phi Phi island group, where coral reefs and fish life are still abundant. The white sand is warm and inviting, just steps from the clear blue water for a refreshing swim. And if all of that is not enough, a Thailand yacht charter also offers experiences with long-tail boats, local cultural traditions and more.
