Spectacular Cruising

Phang Nga Bay is one of the world’s most spectacular cruising grounds and has featured in the 007 movie “The man with the Golden Gun”.

The shallow bay is 400 square kilometers, features 42 islands and lies between the island of Phuket and mainland Malay Peninsula. Largely the area is protected by national park and adheres to local laws regarding the preservation of flora and fauna in the region.

The dramatic limestone rocks have hidden caves and blue lagoons ideal for kayaking and the mangroves are exiting to explore by small boat.
