Sailing Holidays in Thailand
Welcome to the region of Andaman Sea! Join us sailing in Thailand where we navigate in-between limestone cliffs rising straight out of the warm waters. White and sandy beaches invite us to relax under palms or snorkel in coral reefs that supply an abundance of marine life. To offer variety we explore lushly forested islands which shelter fully enclosed, open to the sky, lagoons and where emerald water invites us in for a swim. Constant winds make sailing easy and tidal waters give perfect learning opportunities for want-to-learn sailors. This paradise is topped up by the friendliness of the Thai people and their outstanding cuisine that delights all tastes. Paradise? No. Just sailing in Thailand.
Some of Our Stops While Sailing in Thailand
Koh Kudu Yai
We explore the breath taking area of Phang Nga bay, where lushly forested limestone cliffs tower above emerald water. After visiting one of the hidden lagoons (`hongs`), we drop anchor nearby a deserted beach and enjoy our private get away! It is a perfect location to start our sailing holidays in Thailand!
Each yacht has a dinghy which we use to explore a hidden lagoon. While we are totally surrounded by high limestone walls overgrown with lush vegetation we still see the blue sky above! Unforgettable!
Railey Beach, Krabi
At the white sands of Railey beach we go for it all: visiting Thai restaurants, walking under great cliffs and enjoying the shade of palms. A sunset with towering islands in the distance is a great start for a night spent at the beach bars sipping local beer.
The entrance to one of the hidden lagoons is guarded by incredible forms of limestone towers. Upon entering this magical place a large lagoon opens up with mangrove forests encircling it. This is a trademark of sailing holidays in Thailand. It`s only waist-deep so jump around and swim on your back enjoying the views and feeling like in another world!
Phang Nga Bay
On all the islands that we stop at vegetation is lush and jungle alike. Short hikes to the view points are an attraction in itself! Thick groves, tall trees, mangroves, ambiance of birds, monkeys and who knows what else make you feel like a true explorer!
Koh Phi Phi Don
Anchoring our yacht nearby the coral reef gives us access to outstanding snorkeling spots. In the village nearby we can dine on fresh seafood, have a stroll to monkey beach or enjoy a freshly made Mojito in one of the beach bars, admire fireshow… possibilities are endless.
Snorkelling and Diving in Thailand
Snorkeling around this area is on a world class level. Nearby most of our day and night moorings there is a coral reef! These are always truly colorful and full of life! At some places we spot Sergeant – Major fish which can be hand fed!
If the group wants we organize a half-day introductory scuba diving course. You will be taken on a longtail boat to the place where you most likely spot turtles, stingrays and even small sharks! Professional instructions will dive with you twice to introduce you to this wonderful activity.
Watch how we hand fed Sergeant Major fish on our last sailing trip to Thailand.
Koh Phi Phi Ley
After all the local tourist boats leave, we arrive to `The Beach`, the highlight of our sailing holidays in Thailand. We go onshore with our dinghies and enjoy the magical setting of a hideaway paradise with stars above. Night snorkelling reveals tons of glowing plankton, stars above illuminate the cliffs around and everyone is thinking: `can we stay here forever?`.
Koh Khai Nui
Nearby a tiny island with a single restaurant we lay back and watch the clouds pass by. The time does not exist, it`s an evening for simplicity, being present and admiring the natural beauty of Thailand. In the meantime our food arrives and once again we are mind-blown with the richness of tastes and colors on our plates!
Some miles west of Phi Phi, there is the Shark Point. Except harmless Tiger Sharks, which grow up to 2 meters long, we snorkel in an exceptionally colorful reef where big turtles are often to be spotted!
Regatta Day while sailing in Thailand
On the last day of sailing in Thailand we put our newly learnt skills into action. All crews compete against each other to be the first at the finish line. Excitement guaranteed!

Most Frequent Questions
WHO WILL BE ON MY YACHT?
Around 50% of the people who come to my sailing holidays are coming solo. 25% in groups of 2 and 25% in the group of 3 and more. As there is a few yachts I take special care in matching people to the crews. I even wrote a little blog post about that: Matching Yacht Crews for Sailing Holidays
HOW DOES THE EXACT ITINERARY LOOK LIKE?
At Naleia we plan as we go according to the weather conditions and all crews` moods. There is a set of places that we can visit, but the order and exact choice is only made each morning after verifying the weather conditions. Leave planning at home! We live for the moment!
WHY THAILAND SAILING TRIP IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN NALEIA SAILING TRIPS IN EUROPE?
The yachts in Thailand are 3-4 more expensive to charter. Simple supply vs demand (unfortunately…). However, people say the experience is worth every penny!
WHEN CAN I CHECK-IN ON THE FIRST DAY AND WHEN DO WE ARRIVE TO MARINA ON THE LAST DAY?
Check-ins are always at 16h00. You are naturally most welcome to come earlier and say hello! Your yacht is being cleaned for you at this moment so we need to wait a little. On the last day we arrive to our marina in the afternoon: 15h00-18h00. We need to check-out and leave the yachts before 09h00 on the next morning.
WHICH MARINA WILL YACHTS DEPART FROM?
All yachts are leaving from Yacht Haven Marina.
HOW MANY YACHTS WILL THERE BE IN THAI FLOTILLA?
We expect to sail in a cosy 2-3 yachts flotilla.
