GaySail.com: The warm, hospitable 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. The cruising grounds off the east coast of the island of Phuket are among the finest anywhere. More than 130 picturesque isles lie within the province of Krabi alone. 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. The offshore marine preserves of the Similan and Surin islands are internationally famous as one of the world’s top scuba diving sites.

Day 9: Nai Harn
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
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
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 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. You can always come back and book another cruise!
