There are already many good reviews about Igor and his yatch chartering service, but I would like to add one more. The email replies from Delphine were prompt. Igor made sure every details were looked into. We got a glorious day on the boat with sunny weather installed for us. Food was tasty, Igor perfected the whole charter to an art :) We got to go Coral island, and I got to try snorkeling for the first time of my life under his guidance. Saw so many colours underwater, absolutely amazing. We even got to feed the fish near Coral Island.
On the way back, I chatted with Igor found out that he built the boat from scratch on his own in Australia. He had this dream of building his boat in while he was in Germany, with no prior sailing experience. My respect for this guy grew many folds after I learnt that he has spent a year to build the boat (run his own wire, sew his own cushion using sewing machine etc etc) and sailed it all the way from Australia to Phuket. What a determined man at work?! And his determination and dedication definitely showed when he played host to the four of us. He even cut chilled pineapples for us during the return journey, always full of surprises. For fear that the drizzle might hit us when we alight, he steered the boat to the Marina at Chalong Bay and get his wife to wait for us there, even though it means more trouble. We owed a fabulous day to Igor and Delphine. Had it not been their professionalism and hospitality, the day will never shine like what it did.
Take my words, give Igor and his team a chance to showcase their mastery. You will be hooked! Good news, they are starting their speedboat business starting 15 Dec.
