Popular among Bangkok city dwellers, Pattaya is the go-to weekend destination for sunseekers, beach lovers and boating enthusiasts. Sailing from Pattaya to explore the deep-blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand is an amazing experience that you should not miss. Cruise along the coast and drop anchor in sheltered bays to relax, take a swim or go snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Whether you let your captain recommend you the most popular Pattaya boat trips or you would like to plan yourself your sailing holidays in Thailand, make sure to keep your camera close to capture memories for a lifetime.
Ocean Marina Yacht Club
If pressed for time during a holiday in Thailand, or if you just want to escape the city and spend a day sailing in Pattaya with friends, head to Ocean Marina - an urban oasis and the perfect springboard to get out on the water on your private yacht charter. One of our favorite Pattaya boat trips is cruising along the coast and explore the many relatively undeveloped islands, a rarity in Thailand.
Located close to the Cambodian border, the Koh Kut archipelago is ideal for one of your extended sailing holidays from Pattaya. The fourth largest in Thailand, Koh Kut is mountainous and heavily forested over half of its land area. There are several beautiful waterfalls on the island, coastal coconut groves, and excellent beaches on the west coast. Originally developed for package Thai holiday groups, the island has recently become popular destination for individual sailing holidays in Thailand.
The underdog destination for sailing holidays in Thailand is the gulf and the cosmopolitan area around Pattaya. Boat trips are ideal if you’re looking to spend a laid-back weekend, relaxing on your elegant private yacht. Hop aboard your boat in Ban Phe (a short drive from Pattaya) and set sail to Koh Samet - a popular getaway for both tourists and Bangkok crowds, featuring pristine white-sand beaches and aquamarine waters. Drop anchor and enjoy the view!
