My partner and I booked a 3 night sailing tour from Koh Phi Phi to Phuket through Intrepid on the SY Cataleya. This trip was truly one of the best trips of our lives. We had never sailed at all before nor had we ever done a small-group tour and were a bit nervous. However, everything turned out to be... More

We had 3 perfect days on the catamaran Mozart away from the hotel, everything was perfect from booking to the end, the staff was always helpful and didn't get in the way when we wanted some privacy.

My friends and I had the best time ever on the Cheng I Soa pirate ship boat! Wolfgang and the staff were incredible professional and helpful! They meet our every need and truly made it a great day for us on the boat. Also the food was delicious! I highly recommend Faraway Yachting for your boat trip in Phuket!

Had a fantastic time with an incredible itinerary that includes kayaking and walking in sea caves, rock climbing (optional), and snorkeling. Boat is older but in good shape and crew is wonderful. Fantastic Thai cooking on board. Great option for solo travelers as well as others--so long as you are prepared for little privacy. Trip attracted a great group of... More

We had a beautiful afternoon out on the boat. We sailed around the south of Phuket and stopped by a completely empty island where everyone had a bit of snorkelling. At the end of it we caught sunset on the boat. The only thing I would recommend is a full day as half a day went by way too quickly!... More

This trip was one of the most remarkable I've been on. We sailed to small islands in the Andaman Sea, stopping to snorkel, kayak, and paddle board. The food onboard was great. Our chef prepared local fresh Thai food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I would recommend this adventure to all looking for something a little different than the traditional... More

I was lucky enough to sail with Faraway Yachting for six nights among the beautiful islands of Phang Nga Bay (departing out of Phuket,Thailand). The limestone cliffs, forests, hongs (hidden lagoons), snorkeling and other water activities, and pristine beaches made it the trip of a lifetime. A Faraway charter is the ideal way to experience this paradise because so much... More

For 20 years we return almost each year to Phuket and we only do this because the entire Sailing Experience is perfect. From the organizational details before the trip to the experience onboard with the crew, outstanding Thai food, even for special food requirements. The captain always knows which spots are the quiet and tranquil spots, and somehow the sun... More

Wolfgang gave us a warm welcome and introduction at Dickies Lighthouse in Chalong from where we got picked up from our captain and brought aboard Amadeus with the dinghy. On board we were lucky that the boat was not fully booked, else luggage storgage would have been an issue. Cabins are small and clean with plenty of ventilation possible. Fresh... More
