Daily departure from Phuket, but only joining with other travellers.
A fantasy at Phang Nga. Lie back on the deck cushions in a gentle breeze under the sun canopy and let the experienced crew sail you through the wonders of Phang Nga Bay.
Why flock to this idyllic stretch with masses of tourists, when you can miss the crowds entirely, especially aboard the majestic June Bahtra, a traditional junk rigger schooner, that traverses the lush tropical archipelago from Phuket to Phang Nga.
The boat is a delight in itself, a completely authentic junk combining Malay and Dutch influences, to a bygone area of pirates and smugglers. You will be taken through the amazing scenery of Phang-Nga Bay, we visit a sea gypsy village perched over the water on stilts and we also visit James Bond Island, an unforgettable experience.
