If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, there are many options; trekking in Peru, white-water rafting in Queenstown, an African safari, all of which would no doubt be memorable experiences, but chartering your own luxury yacht is simply on another level. A customised holiday that gives you luxury floating accommodation, as you explore the tropical islands in Southern Thailand, in the gorgeous Andaman Sea, one of the last remaining pristine ecosystems that are not heavily impacted by humanity.
You might be thinking you’ll have to visit a few boatyards, but with online solutions, you can find a specialist that handles both yacht sourcing and chartering, and they would have an impressive fleet of yachts and superyachts and can accommodate parties of 20+ if you are thinking of arranging a group holiday.
Affordable Holiday with Friends
Let’s say you knew of at least 3 or 4 other couples who would love to accompany you on a luxury cruise in the Andaman Sea, and with a group sharing the costs, chartering a yacht is not that expensive. It is worth noting that all your food and soft drinks would be included, and with a professional crew at your beck and call, you are in a luxury setting as you enjoy the stunning tropical islands in the Andaman Sea.
Amazing Marine Life
Can you imagine swimming with a Whale Shark? This is an easy request for a seasoned skipper who knows the waters intimately, indeed, any marine life you wanted to observe, simply say the word. Bottle-nose dolphins are common in these waters and you simply must drop anchor among the unique Phi Phi Islands, not far from Phuket, which have to be seen to be believed.
Customise your Experience
When you charter a yacht, you decide where you go, how long you stay, plus the menu is tailored to your liking and the bar suitably stocked for those sunsets on deck with your favourite cocktail. Of course, your planned schedule is not set in stone, indeed, you can change your mind at any time, and if you ask the skipper for some recommendations, he will have many quiet and peaceful locations among the small islands. If you wish to spend the evening in the hi-end discos along Patong Beach in Phuket, the yacht can be moored for the evening, as you and your friends dance the night away.
The Andaman Sea is one of the very best snorkelling spots, so make sure you take your mask, snorkel and flippers, although the yacht would likely keep a few sets, and when you drop anchor off a beautiful reef, you can explore the underwater world for as long as you please.
