Why is Thailand one of the most attractive places to sail?

Thai islands are well-known all around the world. They have numerously hidden and protected beaches that will unwind you and bring you peace of mind. Nevertheless, you will be able to find places that are remote and desolate, with beautiful sandy beaches and tropical greenery. The views of the crystal-clear sea and tall cliffy islands will certainly persuade you to revisit the islands.

Sailing season and climate

Thailand has a tropical climate and so it is generally quite hot, particularly between the months of March and May with April being the hottest month (30°C/86°F). Although it is possible to sail around the Thai islands all year round, there are some climate changes that need to be taken into consideration in order to know when the most suitable period is to visit.

Phuket and Koh Chang archipelago are best to visit during the Northeast monsoon, which starts in November and goes through to the end of April. In May, you can see the transition from the Northeast to the Southwest monsoon and the weather begins to be more unpredictable, however, on the bright side, the period between May to November is considered to have lower costs and fewer tourists. Most of the mainstream tourists visit during Christmas and New Year’s holidays which is considered the peak season when charter prices are highest.

The Koh Samui cruising ground is at its best during the Southwest monsoon which begins to arise in June and then starts fluctuating in September.

Requirements for bareboat charter

In order to be able to charter a bareboat in Thailand, the skipper is required to fill out a questionnaire and the sailing experience they had. No official sailing license is necessary to have on hand, however, before making any reservations, we advise you to check all the requirements with your agent.

Otherwise, we can provide you with a local professional skipper and other crew members (such as a hostess and a chef) to attend to you and make your sailing experience a holiday to remember!
