Write a Review

  1. Chartered a 2 cabin yacht. Choose Sunsail as they are an established international company. The crew were professional and so were the deck hands. We are not sailors but no problem they provided a captain and staff.

  2. We chartered a 33ft monohull for 4 days cruising around Phang Nga Bay. Absolutely no problems at all. We had a wonderful time and the boat, equipment and service were all top-notch. The price we paid was fair and we felt more assured dealing with Sunsail than a local operator.

  3. I would say this is the best bareboat charter in Phuket. Fully equipped boat made our Andaman sea exploration wonderful! I used their skipper at an extra cost, just wanna be sure about the safety and directions. What an amazing sail trip! Thumbs up….
