First time sailing in Thailand. The DYC base and marina were extremely well maintained, beautiful and clean. They transport you around in golf carts and take care of loading all your luggage on board. Couple of really nice restaurants within walking distance of the docks. Security was excellent.
Even though we ended up there during the hottest month (late March into mid April), the AC on the yacht worked awesome. But, during that time period the winds were very low, so we motored more than sailed. A little disappointed that we could not go up to the Similian Islands anymore because they no longer allow yachts to overnight up there, so we spent our time in the southern Adaman Sea and Phang Nga Bay. All the island attractions were as advertised but you must go early mornings or early evening to avoid the bulk of the tourist boats - then you can have these magnificent hongs and snorkeling spots all to yourself. We even went to see live Muay Thai Boxing while anchored near Krabi. The food is wonderful and really, really inexpensive - had we known we would have provisioned less and planned on eating ashore much more. Really glad we checked Thailand off our bucket list of must sail places. Be sure not to miss Monkey beach, the Emerald Pool and James Bond Island!!! Karen & Doug

Absolutely Amazing. I have had the opportunity to sail in many exotic places in the world but the experience we had in Phuket was outstanding. Dream Yacht Charters were fantastic on all levels. The manager, Kristina was not only professional but so friendly and helpful in all ways. She greeted us upon arrival, did a detailed briefing, sent us off and was there when we returned back. She also provided a captain to get us out of the marina and also when we returned to avoid any embarrassing docking situations and take that stress away.
The boat was tip top, spotlessly clean and everything functioned beautifully. No corners were cut and no expense was spared on this boat which made it so much more enjoyable to sail.
Words cannot describe the feeling one gets when sailing next to giant limestone spires that jut out of the water 100 meters up in fantastic colors from turquoise waters. Amazing on all levels. Imagine mooring next to this and then jumping off the back of the boat to snorkel.
I highly recommend Dream Yacht Charters and sailing in Phuket, we will be back again and again! Thank you Kristina and your amazing Team!

Lovely trip. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Staff worked very hard but always with a smile on their faces. Visited many beautiful locations and the captain always chose the best places to stop for a swim or for the evening. He always kept the guests well informed and asked what they preferred to do. The boat had everything you needed and the catering on board was 1st class.

Would use Dream Yacht Charters again without any hesitation.

I had the pleasure of participating in a sailing trip with Dream Yacht, and it was an absolutely fantastic experience in a dreamlike area.

Our skipper, Sem, is extremely competent and knowledgeable about the region. He always knew when and under what weather conditions he could provide us the best experience.
Our Chef Sei was the heart of the team. She always had a smile on her face, and spoiled us every day with excellent Thai food.

Overall, it was a excellent sailing trip.

It was amazing to sail in Thailand. Lendscape is beautiful on the north part and the water is cristal clear on the south around the Phipji Islands. The weather was windy enough to sail almost every day. Hospitality and kindness is in the blood of people hear. Food is amazing everyvhere. I fully recomend it

Boat was fantastic. Crew was outstanding. Yaya, Lila, and Ampon really made the experience wonderful. They worked tirelessly to make us happy and comfortable from the moment we boarded. They gave great recommendations and this trip will be a highlight of our lives!

We booked this trip in May 2016 hoping to have a nice relaxing trip around the islands in Thailand. Upon arriving to Phuket, we were notified right before boarding the boat that we had been switched to a different boat and not only was it an old boat but most importantly it did not have air conditioning in the cabins.
we would have not booked this trip at ALL and spent the money we spent for a trip where we could not sleep at night due to the extreme heat in the cabins. The temperature in Thailand is almost 100 degrees and in the cabins with no air circulation it is ABSOLUTELY miserable.
we would have not booked this trip knowing we were not going to have air conditioning in our cabins and we would have canceled the trip if we would've been notified ahead of time of the boat change with no air conditioning in the cabins and then to have showed up the day of, we checked in at 12 o'clock and were not notified of the boat change until 6 PM prior to going on the boat the day of. Trust me We were not happy with the deceit and lack of information given to us prior to us coming on this trip. We literally did not sleep for a week. We do not choose to vacation in these type of conditions, this was like primitive camping.
We flew a very long way to come here and planned around this so that we could have a nice relaxing time on the boat and that is not what happened. Do not get me wrong, the scenery was beautiful, food was great, crew was very friendly, and it wasn't their fault that we were lied to. So we certainly tried to make the best of the situation. This company has left a bad taste in my mouth and what they cannot give us back is the trip we had imagined. We flew 26 hours to get there and get back home and then to have not slept for an entire week made for very long days and dreading the night time.
We have done plenty of yacht charters in the past(none were luxury but all had air in cabins) and were and have been the best vacations. Until now.
I'm not alone in this anger. The whole group on the boat was upset about it and no one slept well each night.
We are angry and disappointed. I don't feel like this is a cheap trip to take and to be miserable and not sleep is not something that is called a vacation.
I emailed the company as did my travel agent and they gave us a small amount of money back for the boat change but that is only after we complained about it and his should have been done without complaint as that would be the honest way to do business.
Do not charter this company.

We are so sorry to read of your unexpected experience with our operation in Phuket. As we hope was conveyed, we are immensely sorry to all involved in that particular by the cabin charter as it was in no uncertain terms, a horrible mistake. From the information we have attained, the catamaran which this by the cabin charter was originally booked on had an operational failure just prior to the arrival of the group for your charter. We take full responsibility for the lack of communication between the base, the sales office and brokers. Had we known of the situation prior to departure we would have certainly notified all charterers and allowed for alternative plans. We are committed to helping you feel as though you are supported and would like to chat with you further to help come up with a suitable solution. We can assure you, had this major mistake not taken place, you would have had a wonderful time, it would be our absolute pleasure to show you the true experience in the future. Again, we are so sorry for your experience. Please email us directly to work towards a happy conclusion. infona at dream yacht charter dot com

My husband (he's a boat captain) and I chartered a Lagoon 42 for an amazing vacation! We invited two friends (also boat captains) to share our week-long journey with us. We had the vacation of a lifetime! The base manager and staff were amazing! The Lagoon 42 was amazing (excluding the dinghy)! Our week on the water aboard White Lotus afforded us unlimited opportunities to see the beauty one only dreams of! The only downside to the trip was that it was too short! We are planning on returning for two weeks sometime within the next few years! Loved, loved, loved the trip and White Lotus (that's the name of the Lagoon 42)!
