The Similan Islands are one of the most popular trips to take from Phuket. This archipelago is set in the Andaman Sea, and is made up of 11 different islands. The entire area is a national park, with each island surrounded by clear blue waters, with coral reefs that have made them famous for scuba diving and snorkelling. A yacht charter to the Similan Islands allows you to go island hopping at your own pace. The islands take up an area of around 140km², so seeing all the islands can be difficult if you travel by water taxi or ferry. With your own yacht hire, you can see so much more. You can even travel at your own pace, deciding how long to stay on each island and do what works for you.
The Similan Islands are an extremely popular place to visit, and they are notorious for being extremely crowded at times, to the extent that the government has banned overnight stays. This means, if you want to visit the islands for a few days, hiring a boat is the best option. It allows you to go to the quieter islands, which are more difficult to access, and at night, you can sleep on-board. Yacht Sourcing offers boats that suit couples and families, as well as boats with multiple berths, so you can make sure you’re comfortable while at sea. You can even get a head-start on the crowds in the mornings.
