Island Cruises offers the opportunity to explore this entire region aboard one of their Island Cruises Sailing Yachts with some of the most experienced Cruising Sailors that can be found in the area. They have a variety of different packages available from a 3-4 hour sunset cruise around Koh Tao, to a full on, hands on, 7 day sailing course, where you do everything, you learn to sail very easily and quickly. I cannot think of a better location to learn to sail, warm winds, warm climate and some of the most beautiful clear waters in South East Asia, and the crew are good fun and they make sure you have a trip to remember.


Island Cruises was founded in 2005 and is supported by Cruising Sailors with years of experience in Sailing the world, it is located in on Koh Tao and if your sailing with them for a couple of days they can even drop you off on Koh Phangan.

Currently Island Cruises is operating with two Sailing Yachts which during the east monsoon season can be found off shore from Sairee Beach, during the west monsoon season the Yachts are relocated to the tranquil serenity of Hin Wong Bay.

Previously Koh Tao gained it's popularity as a popular tourist destination as it has been renown for the highest quality diving destinations for obtaining the cheapest diving certifications. Now the Island is flooded with dive centres all competing for students to dive with them. With the addition of Island Cruises to Koh Tao there is another way to appreciate the spectacular marine life and all the Island, it's charms and it's surrounding areas have to offer via an alternative means; with an Island Cruises Sailing Charter.

Relaxing is easy with the wind in your hair, sun on your face, the gentle motion of a Sailing Yacht gliding over the water whilst enjoying tropical paradise from the sea.

Sail & Dive / Scuba Island Cruses VIP Sail and Dive Program is like no other diving experience you will find on an island with the fundamental basis for tourism and business coming from the diving industry. When participating in diving activities on Koh Tao, often the feeling is being created as though you were to be walking through a mainstream shopping complex with many unknown people shopping for many different things, it can become over crowded, disorientating and often uncomfortable with so many divers from different centres all underwater at which ever dive sites have the best visibility for the day, all arriving at the dive site and disappearing at roughly the same times. With Island Cruises you are given the unique opportunity of sailing to your dive site (a site of either your choice or we can provide you with suggestions as to where the best visibility is found on any given day under the direction from the expertise of the Island Cruises Dive Team), make your dive from a sailing yacht in a very small intimate group (max. 4 person). Enjoy the sailing trip to one of the best dive spots around Koh Tao, dive at midday with optimum light conditions, free from other diving boats and enjoy being under the water with just your small group, gain all the underwater has to offer you when being away from the crowds. When you surface you will be free to indulge in the freshly prepared lunch Island Cruises has provided for you aboard the yacht and relax while sailing back to the Koh Tao. Maximum number of guests for this trip is 4 People. We supply a professional and certified dive guide and all the equipment is fitted out for your needs the previous day.

4 dayAngthong Safari Angthong National Marine The Island Cruises Angthong National Marine Park 4 Day Sailing Safari will lead you on a sailing expedition to one of the last untouched and unspoilt natural attractions remaining in Thailand. The 42 magnificent limestone islands together with their gorgeous underwater world will be an impression that lasts a lifetime. Covering a distance of about 100 nautical miles, this Safari combines serious sailing with the possibility of having the major attractions of the islets completely for you. Day trips from Koh Samui are frequenting the area and following a strict regime and timetable, only touching down on the main Islands. With Island Cruises experienced Skippers and Crew who are often visiting this superb sailing ground, have noted that there is still such a large expanse of the Angthong National Marine Park yet to be explored, and with each Safari more natural wonders are discovered. In this part of the world it is still truly possible to have the feeling as though you are the last or the first person on earth. The Angthong National Marine Park has something on offer for everyone, rock-climbing, snorkelling, fishing, relaxing on a beach or aboard the Island Cruises Yacht, soaking up the sun, cave exploration, bushwalking, swimming in the Emerald Lagoon, experiencing undisturbed tropical nature and the best it has to offer. This area offers good winds for sailing the region all year round so come join the Island Cruises team still on the voyage of Sailing discovery and exploration in this region. The Safaris start and finish in Koh Tao, however if guests have plans to visit Koh Phangan or Koh Samui it is possible to arrange a drop of on these Islands given that they are so close to the Angthong National Marine Park but that does permit a loss of sailing time on the final day. For guests coming to Koh Tao simply for the Safari we are able to offer a ferry service from both Koh Samui and Koh Phangan providing a transfer directly from the pier to the Island Cruises Safari Yacht. The following is a template of a possible itinerary for the 4 Day Angthong National Marine Park Safari and is subject to change according to wind direction, speed and guests specifications. Day 1 -Pick up at 7am from your accommodation -Meet the Island Cruises team and set sails to cover the distance from Koh Tao to Angthong. -Breakfast and lunch served aboard the Island Cruises Safari Yacht. -Upon arrival (approx. 3pm) guests can shake off their sea legs for an evening on the beach of Koh Wua Talap. -Dinner served aboard. Day 2 Enjoy a hearty breakfast served and provided by your Island Cruises team, then enjoy a light hiking excursion to the best view point in the district (some say perhaps one of the best view points in Thailand itself). At this time of the day, hours before the first tour boats arrive; guests are having the trail completely to themselves. On the trail meet up with a family of Dusky Langurs allow themselves to be observed incredibly closely. (For the completion of the trail basic fitness and shoes are a must but the reward is a fantastic panorama of scattered limestone islands.) On the way back say hello to the monkey family. Back to the beach, have a little break before heading to Bua Boke Cave. Upon returning lunch is waiting to be served aboard your temporary Island Cruises home. Afterwards set sails for Koh Saamsao to have a look at the stone bridge and enjoy some snorkelling. Then it will be time to hoist the anchor again and motor to the final destination of the day, Koh Mae Koh. -A little beach exploration and dinner served on the boat. Day 3 After breakfast we're visiting Talay Nai (inner sea), an emerald green lagoon surrounded by limestone bluffs, connected to the sea only by an underwater tunnel. Looking at this natural wonder tells you how somebody could have the idea for a book like "the beach". It's time for going up anchor again and sail to the northern islands of the group to have a look at the small lagoon at Koh Tai Plaow. Upon arrival we're noticing two tour boats, so we're having a change of schedule and going with our fast dinghy over to Koh Ngam and Koh Rork to snorkel through some cave tunnels. We're really lucky with the visibility under water. After snorkelling through a tunnel from the eastern to the western side of Koh Rork the tunnel opens and gives the view free to a perfectly alive coral garden. Our guests are a little bit afraid of the black tip reef shark that is waiting for us at the other entrance but after a little mental support they don't miss this attraction. After the tour boats disappeared we're visiting the little lagoon on Koh Tai Plaow. On request of our customers who need internet access we're setting sails after lunch and do the 5 hour sail to Koh Phangan. After dinner our guests having an evening ashore. Day 4 In the morning we hoist the sails to cover the distance from Koh Phangan back to Koh Tao. Seven hours of really relaxed downwind sailing awaiting us. We drop anchor at 4pm. Prices inclusive of: - Transfer from and to your accommodation on Koh Tao - All meals - Skipper and Crew - Unlimited soft drinks - Limited alcoholic drinks (4 bottles of beer or 4 glasses of wine/day per person) - For smaller groups (up to 4 Person) accommodation on the yacht. - For bigger groups accommodation ashore in bungalows or tents - snorkelling equipment - Dinghy transfers and exploring Prices Low: 18,000 / High: 20,000 / Peak: 22,000
