This sailing cruise was one of the best day trips I have ever been on! We booked as a group of 3 and had no idea what to expect. When we got to the pier there were only 2 other people who had signed up for the day. So basically the 5 of us had an entire sailboat to ourselves for the day! And it was an AMAZING boat as well. You can sit out front in the sun, or up top where there is plenty of shade. There were loads of snacks and drinks throughout the day, as well as an amazing curry lunch. The boat crew was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Most importantly, you get to see BEAUTIFUL sites on this boat. We went to 2 very relaxed beaches, jumped off the boat, and swam to shore. At other times we just enjoyed taking long naps in the sun. It was honestly the most relaxing day someone could ask for!! Highly recommended!

This boat!!! Words cannot describe it. Pictures do not do it justice. If you're unsure whether or not to book a trip, I can only advise you that it was probably the highlight of our trip.

I was half heartedly thinking about a boat trip before leaving. All I could find were packed boats with load music and a bunch of idiots... until I chanced upon this. Naturally I was sceptical... it looked too good to be true. What we got was even better than I had hoped. The boat is immaculate, and the people are fantastic. We took a half day tour, sharing with another group of 4 people, and felt like we had the boat to ourselves. The boat has bathroom facilities and an outdoor shower (warm water) on a bathing platform on the back of the boat. I went down into a cabin to change at one point and thought it would be so nice to sleep onboard. There are cushions thoughtfully positional all over the boat to make everything really comfortable.

Not only would I do this again, I would do a full day, possibly overnight with friends next time.

Matthew the owner, his Thai partner and the Captain, were all the perfect hosts. Quiet, friendly and ready to help.

If you want the best, this is truly the way to do it. Just email them with your wishes, and they were very quick to reply.

Last summer I was travelling in the south of Thailand and I booked a half day cruise by Red Star Sailing at Ko Phangan.
I was picked up at the Mac Bay Resort for transfer to the Baan Tai Pier.
Red Star Sailing uses a big catamaran boat and the easy pace with this boat on a calm sea is very relaxing.
I met a French family with kids on the catamaran too. The kids had lots of fun in the water : swimming, snorkeling and having their first surfboarding experience. Meanwhile the parents had fully relaxation on one of the sun decks. Everybody happy!
Matthew & his crew are always at your service with delicious snacks, cool drinks and a lot of advice ! Matthew is Belgian who speaks Dutch, French, English, some German and basic Thai.
I had a marvelous time with Red Star Sailing. Highly recommended !

This year I celebrated my 50th birthday in Koh Samui and I wanted to make the actual day special for me and my family and friends. After endless searching for yachts on the web I finally found Matthew and redstarsailing.com. Unlike all of the other contacts I was instantly talking (via email) to the skipper and owner and he immediately understood that I wanted a special day. From the outset Matthew was patient, knowledgeable, very polite and overall cared to make a difference,

Over a couple of exchanges we worked out a days itinerary, pickups, menus, etc and all was set. Matthew made it simple to pay in advance through PayPal. During the whole booking process I was chartering the yacht for a certain number of people and unknown to me my wife was also in discussion with Matthew as my children were also flying in to surprise me and Matthew never said a word to me but planned accordingly.

On the day we were met at our resort by a courteous driver in a nice vehicle and the day was set to go. We arrived at the. Pier and two of the guests had difficulty boarding but the crew instantly rallied and found alternate means to ensue boarding was easier for the guests and above all safe. I have owned and skippered boats and Matthews boat was in outstanding condition both aesthetically, mechanically and safety wise. Virtually as soon as we left the harbour the crew were serving is a delightful breakfast of Bruscettas, coffee, teas, soft drinks; they could not do enough to make sure we were totally comfortable and happy.

We got to Angthong National Park and had so much fun swimming, snorkelling, and using the on board stand up paddle boards. As the "special guest" I was totally overjoyed to see all of my guests playing and having fun swimming to deserted islands and discovering underwater life. We had a number of very accomplished swimmers and divers on board but Matthew and the crew never took their eyes off the water ensuring everyone was SA fe at all times.

Next was lunch and although simple Thai Massamum curry, it was delicious; not a scrap left for the fish. As previously agreed we had a couple if bottles of bubbly which the crew chilled to perfection for the journey back to port. I did not know there was any more food but Matthew and Laila suddenly appeared with gorgeous freshly chilled fruit cocktails in orange juice - I have already tried to recreate that at home :-)

If you are 6 to 12 people and want a true day of a lifetime around Samui or Koh Phangan I cannot recommend this enough. If you are joining one of Red Stars multi traveller charters, I have no doubt it will be equally as good as ours - truly. A day to remember.

Matthew, Laila and Captain unpronounceablename, thank you from all of us, the best day ever in Thailand, As promised I will send some of the best photos as soon as I can.

The Red Star Sailing private charter is an absolute winner if you're staying on the Island of Ko Phangan. The trip we made was marvellous and you get a clear view on this beautiful island with paradise beaches such as bottle beach. The crew is more than professional and they prepare the best food too.

Take a dive from the boat, paddle to the beach or snorkle around one of the many riffs.

Yes Belgian quality like its supposed to be.

If you like to explore some beautiful places around the island, Red Star Sailing is the best way to do that.
On a very professional way, they bring you to the most magnificant places.
Relaxing and enjoying everything on the way, is the only thing to be busy with.
The owners and the crew make shure this is something never to forget!
We made the trip with our 9 year old daughter and we are shure this experience is in her mind for the rest of her life: soooooooo much fun!!!!!
We higly recommend Red Star sailing for young and old!
we feel that a trip to Thailand islands is not complete without a Red Star sailing experience!

We were 9 Family members that went on this trip. We did the full day "private catamaran" trip to Ang Thong and it was magical !!! I've been to Thailand before, but never experienced a day trip like this. Matthew and Leila were amazing hosts, they make you feel like it's your boat and treat you like royalty! Ang Thong is beautiful. We did some stand-up paddling and had some great laughs watching our parents do it. We jumped off the catamaran, swam, visited viewpoints and just relaxed on the boat. We also had the best masaman curry in Thailand for lunch onboard and were spoilt with gourmet fruit, snacks, drinks and beers the whole day. Thank you Matthew and Leila!!
Next time we are definitely doing the overnight trip!

We have spent two weeks on Koh Phangan end of May 2014 and booked a private tour to the Marine park with Red star sailing. It was just amazing! The first contact via email has already been very friendly and professional and the whole trip was perfectly organized. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning by an air-conditioned SUV, followed by a warm welcome onboard. Matthew and Leela are the greatest hosts. Every wish is taken care of and you are pampered from the moment you get on board. The boat is immaculately cleaned and there is so much space where you can enjoy privacy. Equipped with surf boards and snorkling equipment we spent hours at the marine park. The various delicious dishes we were served during the day alone were worth making the trip :-) Thanks to Chef Leela - best massaman curry ever!! Time was really flying and that was the reason why we booked it again for another trip few days later. This time we made the full day island trip and that's a stunner. You would never see these wonderful bays and beaches when only traveling on the island. We so much enjoyed the time with Matthew and Leela. If you want your privacy no one would disturb you ever and if you are open to chat they are the greatest company. Thank you guys for these wonderful two days onboard of your Kat Yacht. We loved every minute and will definately come back! I can only recommend to anybody going to Koh Panghan to book a trip with Red Star Sailing - it makes your holiday unforgettably perfect :-)
