GaySail Exclusive Catamaran Cruise Patong-Koh Hong-Phuket

Description
This is a GaySail Exclusive Sailing Cruise on two luxury 40 feet Lagoon Catamaran. This cruise includes accommodation on board, the service of a Gay skipper and Gay co-skipper/Cook, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, harbor fees, taxes, end cleaning and gasoline. Start and finish in Phuket. Both weeks have a different itinerary, so, if you like , you can make a great two week sail. We sail this cruise together with two catamaran yachts, so all together 20 gay guys! 

All cabins are for two persons, some with double bed, some with split double bed, two singles can sleep here as well (see layout, middle picture at the bottom of this page). You can also book a 30% cheaper 1-person crew cabin, these are the small cabins in the front, only accessible from the deck (see layout, middle picture at the bottom of this page).

The cruising grounds off the east coast of the island of Phuket are among the finest anywhere. Towering pinnacles of limestone jut from the emerald-colored and sheltered waters of Phang-nga Bay. To the south, the famous Phi Phi Islands stand as jewels of the Andaman Sea. More than 130 picturesque isles lie within the province of Krabi alone, and the offshore marine preserves of the Similan and Surin islands are internationally famous as one of the world’s top scuba diving sites. A Phuket gay sailing vacation offers a multitude of scenic and secure anchorages, pristine white-sand beaches, rugged uninhabited islands, and lively gay nightlife and gay resorts.The warm, hospitable and gay friendly people of Thailand enhance the enjoyment of an exclusive GaySail sailing cruise, making the sailing adventure all the more memorable in a nation often called the Land of Smiles.

With this sailing cruise it’s easy to make a combination with a stay in Phuket, Bangkok, Pattaya or Ko Samui. On X-Mas Day December 25 we will have our X-mas dinner, in a great resort on Koh Yao Yai, see link. We will spent New Years Eve in Patong, for a great gay party! See link.

Schedule

Day 1/ Day 8: Patong. Day of for the guys who stay two weeks. Have a look at Patong Gay beach and Patong town. For the other guys, this is the time to hop on or -off the yacht for the one week cruise. At night the last change to visit the local gay life and of course we celebrat New Year together! Boarding for the new guests starts at 5 pm.

Day 9: Our next stop is the quiet bay of Nai Harn on the south Phuket Island. Get some rest after the party atmosphere of Patong. Dinner in one the local restaurants on the beach.

Day 10: Koh Rang Yai – 25 nm. Today we set a course to the north back to Phuket’s east coast. The scenery remains breathtaking as you sail past the islands and the mangrove forests along the high hills on the shore that rise ever higher toward the interior. The Koh Rang group, a cluster of islets along a bight in the coast is the next destination on our Phuket itinerary. The anchorage at Koh Rang Yai is spectacular, and there is a restaurant ashore. You can also hike on walking paths and rent a mountain bike.

Day 11: Koh Hong – 20 nm. Heading north to Phang-nga Bay, you’ll leave Phuket Island astern. This area is part of the Ao Phang-nga National Park, and its many islands beckon. Our first stop is the scenic Koh Hong group of islands, where we will anchor between towering limestone pinnacles, enjoy a refreshing swim, and take the dinghy to explore the tunnel leading into an enclosed lagoon. In Thai, the word “hong” means room, and that’s exactly what you’ll find, a naturally formed room of magnificent size.

Day 12: Ko Chang Lat. This is a beautiful spot between the sheer cliffs where we will still overnight all alone.

Day 13: Ko Pan Yi. This is a famous fishing village built above the water next to the Island. It is a very attractive village and night we will have dinner in one of the local fish restaurants.

Day 14: Phuket Yacht Haven Marina. Today we have to sail back to the reality and return to the Marina. But you can always come back and book another cruise!
