Best Boating in Phuket

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Phuket team

One of the yachting world’s best kept secrets, the waters around Phuket offer the unparalleled delight of empty tropical beaches, stunning geological formations and breath-taking scenery – all wrapped up in the charm of Thailand – Land of Smiles.

With four marinas and world-class repair and refit facilities, hundreds of people have chosen to keep a boat in Phuket, flying in and out as their time allows. If owning a boat is not your thing, Phuket’s well-developed yacht charter fleet can whisk you away for the yachting holiday of a lifetime – for anything from a day trip upwards with scenic trips to Phang Nga Bay, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi and Koh Lanta. Events and regattas play an important scene in the area bringing sailing yachts and powerboats for some friendly competive racing, business networking and of course socializing.
