Choosing a boat trip in paradise.

The Krabi Province in Thailand is a World class holiday destination, famous for its beautiful coastline, palm fringed coral sand beaches and many, many islands.

There are large inhabited islands like Phi Phi Don and Koh Yao and there are tiny but spectacular islands with towering limestone cliffs providing safe homes to many types of tropical birds.

The popular town of Ao Nang is perfectly located to access the best locations on the islands and along the coast. Close by to Ao Nang are many islands with safe swimming beaches and fringing coral reefs, perfect for snorkelling and diving.

Cruise North from Ao Nang and you are soon in the spectacular Phang Nga Bay. To the South are the islands of Koh Phi Phi and a short distance along the coast are Koh Jum, Koh Pu and Koh Lanta.

Visiting these islands is easy, there are many organised boat trips to choose from, but is a regular day trip the best choice for you?

Here are some of the reasons why chartering private a boat from Ao Nang is the best option for your holiday experience.

Privacy and a custom timetable.

Standard day trips are often called ‘Join-in Tours’ because you are joining other people for the day. The tour times and destinations are all set on these tours. Often there are other boat tours using the same timetable so many arrive at the islands at the same times.

With a private charter you can choose or you can ask for suggestions for the best times to go and return. At certain times of the year certain places will be very busy, on a private boat you can avoid the crowds. You will benefit by enjoying the most beautiful place with just a few, or perhaps, no other visitors.


If you are a family group or group of friends you may be surprised how the cost of boat charter is similar to the total cost of standard day trips.

When you consider all of the advantages of a private trip the charter option is very attractive.

Some of the advantages are;

  • Flexible Timetable
    The boat operator can help you plan a trip with times and destinations that avoid the crowds.
  • New Locations
    Most of the standard tours go to the same places. With a private charter you can visit quieter islands and empty beaches.
  • Quality Food and Refreshment
    No need to worry that the provided food may not be good quality. You have the option of ordering the food you want or supplying your own.
  • Privacy
    It’s only you and your friends and family on your boat. The boat crew are there to provide you with service and keep you safe.

In summary, it’s all about the choice.

It is what makes the best holiday experiences; you choose where you go, when you go, who you go with, what you do and what you eat and drink.

The freedom is yours to take advantage of the best places for snorkelling on coral reefs. You can choose which beaches to visit and how long you stay there.
