Krabi Island Private Boat Tour
Off the coast of Krabi in the southwest of Thailand are numerous picturesque islands: some little more than sandbars or rocky outcrops and others that are home to a multitude of tropical flora and fauna, and beautiful lagoons teeming with marine life. It’s not surprising that these waters attract so many yachting enthusiasts from across the globe, including ourselves! If you would like to book a short private boat Krabi island tour, we have a full-day itinerary that will give you a great taste of what the area has to offer. If you would like to spend longer exploring the local waters, it will be our pleasure to create an itinerary that is tailored to meet your specific requirements.
Private Boat Charter Krabi Island Destinations
Roughly a one hour sail north of Krabi is Koh Hong: an island with a large lagoon at its centre, sheltered by a ring of eroded limestone caves. With only a narrow inlet providing access to the lagoon by boat, you have to wait for high tide before you can pass through into the interior and take in the spectacular scenery. While you’re waiting for the right moment, you can relax with a refreshing drink on Pelay Beach: a beautiful white, coral sand beach lapped by waters filled with tropical marine fish. There is also a short nature trail that you can walk along while you’re here.
Koh Lao Lading:
Little more than 2 kilometres north of Koh Hong is Koh Lao Lading, with a sheltered bay that is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Also known as Paradise Island, Koh Lao Lading is a beautiful location in which to relax and recharge your batteries for a couple of hours before heading off for more adventure. We recommend including it in your private boat charter Krabi island plan if you’re putting together a custom itinerary.
Koh Phak Bia:
Roughly 1.5 kilometres further north is Koh Phak Bia, another small island with stunning limestone rock formations and white, sandy beaches that is a popular stopping-off point for those who charter a private yacht in Phuket to Krabi. Apart from sunbathing, snorkelling and just taking in the scenery, there are not that many activities on offer here but for most people, the scenery and marine life alone make it well worth a visit.
Creating an Itinerary for a Private Boat to Krabi Island From Phuket
With well over a hundred islands of varying sizes in these waters, it’s not possible to cover all of them in one trip. However, if you let us know what type of activities you are most interested in and what sort of scenery you would like to take in on your holiday, we will be happy to help you create an itinerary that covers everything you would like to see and do. Although we specialise in crewed charters, we can also arrange a bareboat yacht charter in Krabi so if you are an experienced sailor and would like to explore at your own pace and under your own steam, we can arrange that for you.
