It may only be a stone’s throw from bustling Phuket but idyllic Maiton Island feels a world away. Experience its spectacular coastline during our full-day sailing catamaran cruise from Phuket, with plenty of time to swim, snorkel and relax in this paradisiacal setting. Spot wild dolphins frollicking in the surrounding waters before kicking back on the white sands of Ao Yon Beach.
With a highly experienced captain at the helm, this catamaran cruise departs from the Chalong Pier just south of Phuket and includes a delicious lunch. It’s ideal for travellers who like to take things slow and want to experience the natural beauty of the island-dotted Andaman Sea at a leisurely pace.
Please note, this trip does not enable you to get off the boat on Maiton Island but explores the surrounding coastline.
If you want to visit the island itself and climb to its viewpoint, we recommend you opt for our full-day speedboat tour to Maiton Island or our full-day sailing catamaran cruise to Maiton Island.
Your adventure begins at the Chalong Pier where we’ll meet for a welcome drink at 08:30 before setting sail for Maiton Island around 09:00. Seasonal tropical fruits and snacks will be served onboard as you cruise through the crystal clear waters of the Andaman Sea, with wild dolphins often seen playing alongside the catamaran.
Around 10:30, we’ll arrive at Maiton Island and cruise along its coastline to find the best spot for snorkelling. Don your snorkelling gear and jump in to discover the myriad marine species that inhabit the island’s coral reefs or just relax on deck while soaking up the magnificent scenery.
Once everyone is back onboard, we’ll continue cruising to Ao Yon Beach, which is definitely one of the best beaches of Phuket and yet to be inundated by tourists. You’ll have time to swim in the shallow waters or enjoy a refreshing drink at the Belgium Restaurant as you wait for your freshly-cooked Thai or international lunch to be served. If you want to splurge on lobster, oysters or a seafood platter, please let us know in advance and we will organise a special rate.
After lunch, you will have time for a final swim or relax on the beach before we leave Ao Yon Beach around 14:30 and return to the Chalong Pier.
