The spoils of Southern Thailand are no secret, but like in so many other paradise-like pockets of South East Asia, there’s always more to discover. Escape the tourists on an adventure cruise that takes in some of the most spectacular little islands off Thailand’s west coast. The Similan Islands, Ko Miang Ko Surin Tai and Khao Lak offer all the hallmarks of Thailand’s idyllic south – the warm blue-green Andaman Sea, blinding white sands and marvellous limestone oddities – without the glitz and bustle of mainland Phuket. Dine and share stories with locals in small villages, explore jungle and boulder-studded shorelines, and swim and snorkel the afternoons away.

Highlights

  • The ocean is your swimming pool on this adventure cruise – and what an ocean it is. The clear warm waters of the Andaman Sea are a dream to wake up to each day
  • Get unrivalled access to snorkelling spots around the Andaman islands from your comfortable small ship
  • Enjoy the laidback nightlife of Khao Lak. This area has not adopted the seedier side of Thai tourism, so it’s great chance to spend a night out without hassle
  • See how the minority Sea Gypsies of Moken Village live, and hear first-hand hear stories of survival in Baan Talay Nok Village which was devastated by the 2004 tsunami

Reiseprogramm



Day 1
Embarkation in Phuket
Arrive in Phuket, greeting your shipmates as you board at 4pm today. Attend a welcome meeting and safety briefing to go over the finer details of your upcoming journey. After dinner onboard with your fellow travellers, set sail at around 9 pm, heading for Ko Similan overnight.

Day 2
Koh Miang
Arrive nice and early in Ko Similan, one of the gorgeous Similan Islands. Renowned among divers for good reason, these islands combine rainforest, white sands and clear blue water to dazzling effect. Enjoy a morning of swimming and snorkelling, or make use of the stand-up paddleboards and kayaks. Mid morning, we will move on to Ko Miang. Late afternoon sailing for Koh Surin. Overnight at sea.

Day 3
Ko Surin Tai
Visit Moken Village for a tour with a local guide. This is the home of the Moken people, a Sea Gypsy ethnic group of Austronesian origin who still mostly live a seminomadic hunter-gatherer life (despite Thai and Burmese attempts to assimilate them into the wider culture). Notice their colourful poles, known as labong, which represent their ancestors. Lunch is included so you can enjoy some local cuisine.
Later, in the afternoon, enjoy some snorkelling and relaxing on the beach. We will spend the night at anchor.

Day 4
Ko Surin Tai
Today is a day of pure relaxation. Enjoy the beautiful beaches and make use of all the toys that the Panorama II has onboard. Lunch will be a picnic on the beach. Tonight, we will sail south to Mu Koh Kam

Day 5
Mu Koh Kam
Travel by longtail boat to Baan Talay Nok village. Enjoy a local-guided tour around the village, which was actually destroyed by 2004 tsunami. You’ll hear some eye-opening stories of survival and how the village has recovered. For lunch, sit down with local families and dine on some tasty local dishes. Try your hand not only at soap-making but also at some cooking, preparing a local dish of grilled coconut wrapped in leaf. Tonight we’ll enjoy under the stars at anchor near Mu Koh Kam.

Day 6
Mu Koh Kam
Today will be a day that reads like a page from the Swiss family Robinson. The Kam islands are undeveloped and rarely visited. Our last day of beach and sea activities will be spent in these idyllic surroundings. But unlike a castaway, you won’t want for sustenance as your lunch will be a sumptuous beach BBQ.

Day 7
Khao Lak
On arrival at Khao Lak, we will disembark for a day of land activities to help you get our land legs back. A visit the Sai Rung (rainbow) waterfall is a chance for a fresh water swim so be sure to have your swim suit with you.
Having met survivors of the 2004 tsunami at Ban Thalay Nok, the Ban Nam Khem tsunami memorial may seem that much more poignant. The wave shaped memorial represents the wall of water that invaded the beaches around Khao Lak on boxing day 2004, and features hundreds and hundreds of names of the tourists and locals that were lost that day. We finish our day around Khao Lak at the beautiful Bangsak beach. Your last chance to enjoy the warmth of the Andaman Sea.
Tonight, the Captain will host a farewell dinner to toast your journey.

Day 8
Disembark in Phuket
Arriving in Phuket early in the morning, disembark after breakfast as the adventure comes to an end.
