Amanpuri has a tailor-made selection of cruise experiences available. The professionally-crewed vessels range from 20 to 110ft, carry full insurance and keep a variety of recreational equipment on board. All craft are available year-round for exclusive use by Amanpuri guests. Vessels depart from three bases on Phuket to the many beautiful beaches and islands in the area. Between December and March some of the vessels are anchored in front of Amanpuri's beach. Amanpuri also provides a wide range of complimentary seasonal watersports equipment, including Hobie Cats, kayaks, windsurfers and snorkelling gear. Water-skiing and wakeboarding can be arranged at a supplementary cost.
Each vessel can be booked for half or full-day excursions around the islands off Phuket, or for overnight stays on trips further afield. From picnic excursions and romantic dinners for two, to four-day-long PADI-certified scuba diving courses, Amanpuri’s versatile fleet offers one of the most unique ways to experience the coastal beauty of Southwest Thailand.
Amanresorts encourages guests to pre-book cruises. Please email email@example.com for more information, a booking request or rates.
