My family (Kids of 20 and 22) spent five days this Christmas sailing around the Mergui with Steve and his crew and had a spectacular time on board the Mahayana, a very comfortable catamaran. The crew were all so friendly and accommodating, and I cannot recommend enough the lovely Thai cook Jan who cooked us top quality fresh Thai food twice a day - delicious!!! Steve runs a great tour and took us to remote islands and fabulous snorkelling spots where we were the only people around except the local Moken fishermen. He and the crew are an extremely professional team and this trip is highly recommended !!

Our group of 8 friends had an amazing time sailing around the mostly uninhabited islands with Steve and crew. The chef Jan amazed us with her skill and the variety of food that she prepared for us every day. We are now spoiled for Thai food any where else. Steve did a wonderful job of taking us to amazing snorkeling spots, hidden beaches, hard to find caves, and cliff-jumping spots. Yaa was a great helmsman and always ready to help with kayaks, paddle boards, fishing, etc.
It was a truly unforgettable trip and we could not recommend this sailing trip more!

Fantastic time sailing the blue seas with this crew! Amazing fresh food prepared by Jan everyday has ruined us for any other Thai food for life. We always felt secure with Yaa at the wheel and Steve really went out of his way on every occasion to make our trip memorable and delightful. Snorkeling and exploring hidden caves by day, beautiful sunsets and relaxing under the stars by night... We couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.
If you are thinking of visiting Thailand, this experience should not be missed!

We opted for a 3N/4D tour and had the most amazing time! The catamaran is very comfortable and could easily sleep 2 families. Lots of space to hang out and enjoy the scenic surroundings. Steve was so accomodating, attentive and a pleasure to deal with, both before, during and after the sail. He is extremely good with kids and ours (5 and 8) loved him. He played games and helped them both on the boat and in the water (he taught them how to snorkle and recognise different fish and corals). We could also easily leave the kids a couple of hours with the crew to go explore, snorkelling or kayaking on our own. The chef was amazing and we had great food throughout the journey, despite some tricky demands from our side. We also really enjoyed the flexibility in planning, and making up the itinerary as we went, depending on our wishes and weather conditions. And, needless to say, to be able to explore Thailand while the international borders still being closed, is an incredible experience! Beaches are empty, animal life is coming back (we spotted both dolphins and reef sharks) and there is very little (sound) pollution from longtails, motorboats and others. Overall, we had an awesome trip and I would warmly recommend it to anyone who wants to explore the islands in the most flexible, relaxing and scenic way ever.

Lina! Thank you so much for this kind review. Indeed, we are very lucky to be able to explore Thailand these days absent mass tourism - and even luckier to have guest like you and your family onboard! It was a pleasure having you guys onboard and hopefully we can look forward to seeing you again! Please say Hi to the family from Ay, Ya and myself :-)

We had a truly amazing experience on Nakamal with Dieter and Ey. We booked a 10-day tour starting from Pak Bara all the way in the South, cruising mainly around the Butang eilands that were fantastically c and finishing in Phuket while stopping around Koh Rok and Phi Phi.
Being off season, most of the bays were deserted often giving us the impression we were alone on earth, except an occasional fisherman’s boat. Being rainy season, we had changing weather all the time that we did not mind much as it was less warm and it provided beatiful sceneries with changing colours. One evening we went off board to walk around on the (inhabited) Koh Lipe which I can also recommend a lot.
Dieter arranged transfer for us from Kao Sok. Also you can rent additional diving gear, sup boards and kayak. Diving is island, weather and tides permitting, so unfortunately we did not get a lot of chance to dive (Dieter knows best spots around as he actually ran the first diving school on Phuket in the early eighties).
Nakamal is relatively comfortable but don’t expect luxury in terms of big cabins and toilets (we showered outside all the time after swimming). A lot of space outside for chilling out. On the other hand sailing on the Nakamal was impressive, especially on one of the long trips we had with 30 knots of winds.
Food was delicious and varied a lot thanks to Ey. Very good fresh products but also the ‘continental’ we ordered were top quality.
Finally, I would like to thank Dieter and Ey for their hospitality. We had a lot of fun together and at the same time they gave us the privacy we needed.
One thing worth mentioning, upfront I was slightly anxious paying half of the amount via Wise with only having had e mail contact. Good to set up a call with Dieter or Steve of course, also to discuss the preferences of what you want to do on the trip that determines the length and route of your trip.

Hi Filip, Thank you so much for this awesome review. I know that the crew of SY Nakamal loved having you and your family onboard, and I heard you had some interesting days sailing! :-) And thank you for your honesty - yes, sending such large amounts of money across is worrisome for many of our guests - but we do our best to make sure every and all questions are answered, and that you are fully comfortable BEFORE you have to commit to anything. It was a pleasure dealing with you, and we look forward to welcoming you back! Best Regards, Steve

We definitely recommend Sailing Phuket boats! Everything was PERFECT! Food, crew and hidden beaches.
We have cruised on the Myanmar waters with captain Steve. He is such a nice captain. the boat was beautiful and confortable. We drunk the water from the sea (turned into fresh one) for 12 days without having any stomach issues!
Travelling with sailing Phuket it's travelling on the house of the captain that is why you are sure to feel like home even on a boat !!

We had the time of our lives on the catamaran with Dieter and Pond! Every day was a perfect mixture of adventure, relaxation, delicious food, and jaw-dropping beautiful views.

From lounging on the top deck with a book and a fresh ocean breeze, to exploring nearby beaches on a paddle board, to diving in amazing locations with no crowding, we enjoyed it all! The food in particular was a highlight, with the cook Pond, even in waves that made us queasy, bravely in the galley whipping up amazing Thai and Western concoctions.

The catamaran is in flawless condition, with beautiful wood interiors and comfortable beds. The head was cleaner and better than most on the mainland and there was hot water for showers after dips into the Andaman sea.

Unlike most vacations, where towards the end you crave the familiarities of home, we left our temporary home with heavy hearts, already planning how we can return and explore the seas again. A vacation with Dieter and Pond is worth every penny and will be the highlight of your year, nay, decade!

This was such a great trip. Eight friends in our sixties from the US, first time to SE Asia. We started in Ao Yon near Phuket and spent 8 nights on Mahayana in early February. Crew was amazing - they took great care of us. The snorkeling was like being in an aquarium at several locations. Captain Steve was great about explaining where we were going, what to expect, where to swim and snorkel and he avoided rough seas and jellyfish with this itinerary. We sailed maybe three days of the eight which was fine. Food was delicious. We were slightly worried before the trip about cabin and head arrangements (3 heads for 8 guests and 4 crew) but it really was a non-issue. Evenings were mostly comfortable (no AC) as it cools off after dark and cabins had small fan. This was a fabulous trip for both the new and experience sailors. Highly recommend.

We had never been sailing before and decided it was time to try it! What an incredible time we had! The sailing experience and the islands visited were incredible, but it was Steve and his crew that took this trip to the next level! Their attention to detail, flexibility, cooking talents and friendliness made this trip so much better than we could have hoped for.

Before our trip, Steve worked tirelessly to plan an itinerary perfect for our group (which included 2 children). He was in regular communication with us and provided alternatives when COVID restrictions were put in place.

The crew was amazing with our kids, too. They played cards, jumped off the boat together and played on the beach with our kids!!

The boat was clean and spacious! It fit our group of 7 perfectly (5 adults; 2 children). For us, 7 nights was the perfect amount of time.

We highly recommend booking a sailing trip with Steve and his crew! We will definitely be taking another trip with him when our extended family comes to visit us!

Hi Alicia! Thank you so much for this lovely review. It's very kind of you! It was also a pleasure having you guys onboard. Annoying as the travel retractions were causing a rescheduling of the trip, we do hope it was worth the wait! And we can't wait to welcome more of your family onboard - keep us posted. Until then, fair winds and stay safe!

My partner and I travelled to Thailand and were fortunate enough to stay onboard the SY Mahayana for 5 days where we visited the most beautiful locations I’ve ever seen, and experienced the trip of a lifetime. The chefs onboard were amazing, producing the most delicious and locally sourced food for us and attending to my partners fussy eating habits. The Captain and his team were so attentive throughout our trip, ensuring we were always having fun and had a cold drink in hand. The SY Mahayana is a beautifully spacious boat with plenty of room in the cabins and lounge area. Outside you can enjoy time in the shade at the seating area or if you want to top up your tan, make the most of the netted area with a bean bag to catch some rays. We made good use of the kayaks, paddle boards and snorkelling gear, as well as the very cool wing surfing! We stopped off at several gorgeous islands with white sand and crystal clear waters it’s like something from a movie (James Bond was filmed in Thailand and we visited the island of Khao Phing Kan). We even took a look in a spooky bat cave which was very exciting! At night you can see the bioluminescence in the water which is just beautifully incredible. My partner loved our time in Thailand so much, we plan to return and take another trip on the SY Mahayana for our honeymoon next year.
