Had an amazing day with Phuket sail tours - the boat and crew were awesome. Elise was great, really friendly and knowledgeable and even speaks thai which really impressed me. The boat was great and there was no overcrowding! Food and drinks on board were plentiful and yummy. The places we stopped at were truly beautiful - lots of photo ops! And the crew made sure the times and places we stopped were pretty much empty except for us - even at Maya bay! Most amazing day of my entire trip and I will def be going with phuket sail tours again!! Thanks Elise and crew :-)

“unforgettable experience”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

this was, without question, the highlight of our trip to phuket. my husband and i signed up for the phi phi island speed boat and snorkeling tour first. we loved it so much that we added the phang nga bay speed boat tour. both were such unique and truly incredible experiences. the snorkeling and sights were beautiful around koh phi phi. and we loved kayaking and visiting the unbelievable fishing village on stilts by phang nga bay.

elise was our guide on both trips and she and the rest of the crew were very friendly and so knowledgeable about the places we visited. phuket sail tours felt personal and comfortable, the complete antithesis of the overcrowded tour boats that shuttled passengers on and off like cattle.

“Fantastic trip for the whole family”
Reviewed April 14, 2011

We had a fantastic day with Phuket Sails Tours. There were a lot of other boats out but Elise made sure that we were always away from the crowds. There was plenty of food and drink on the boat and the restaurant where we stopped for lunch not only had great food but also fantastic views. Elise made our 6 year old daughter's day when she bought the family snap shot for her. We would definitely recommend you do a trip with Phuket Sail Tours.

“Very Professional, Safe and Amazing”
Reviewed April 8, 2011

We went in Oct/2010 from Shanghai. This Aussie team is very honorable. They kept their word even though most flights from Australia were cancelled on the day we went (meaning that none of their other people who were supposed to join trip came). Therefore we had the whole boat to ourselves with a cook, captain and cheif sailor. They did not cancel the trip nor did they charge us more. We had an excellent trip. Captain Mark was also very friendly with out 6 year old son. He drew out a fake pirate map on a piece of paper and we followed the pirate map. He has all safety equipment and well trained crew. Highly recommend. Especially when we went we saw all the big boats without proper safety gear taking 100's of tourists per boat. While such trips may be cheaper, they looked quite unsafe and with huge crowds. Captain Mark knows the timing of these big tour boats and stays ahead of them, so we had all the key beaches, hongs, caves and diving spots all to ourselves.
