Weather Conditions for Thailand Sailing

Thailand Seasons & Climate

Coastal areas of Thailand largely have a classic tropical climate, with average temperatures that consistently range between 24° to 30° C and with three distinct seasons:

  • March through May is the hot season, usually dry and very warm.
  • June through October is the wet season, with frequent monsoon activity. Winds blow from the southwest and often clear the skies and open up into gorgeously sunny days and brilliant sailing.
  • November through February is the cool season, with moderate weather and easy sailing.

The most popular time of year for Thailand yacht charter vacations is during the November-February cool season, when low rainfall and mild temperatures make for optimal sailing conditions. Winds typically blow from the northeast and the air is clear and fine.

Tropical storms or cyclones are so rare in this area, you don't need to worry about severe weather interrupting your sailing in Thailand.

5 DAYS - Itinerary 1

Thailand Itinerary 1

5 DAYS Phuket - Phuket

Chalong to south west Koh Lanta (50 nm)

Directly on the beach you will be able to enjoy paradise like bungalow resort with deep crystal-clear water where you can drop your anchor and cool down. Good to remember is that from the north end of beach, there is a small road that leads to a little village (perhaps 300m north of the beach) that actually has a Seven Eleven and an ATM.

DAY 1: Chalong to south west Koh Lanta (50 nm)

Koh Lanta - Koh Ma (east Koh Ngai, 10 nm) - Koh Kradan (east coast, 7 nm)

Koh Ma was such a beautiful place! You can drop your anchor in 10 meters deep water on Koh Ma’s east coast. Besides some scattered long-tail boats it is quiet and peaceful with a white sand bottom close to the shore. There you can find a nice unspoilt bounty beach without a resort, but there are several small bungalow resorts further along the coast.

DAY 2: Koh lanta - Koh Ma (east Koh Ngai, 10 nm) - Koh Kradan (east coast, 7 nm)

Koh Kradan - Koh Muk, two stops (6 nm) - Koh Rok (18 nm)

Koh Muk is well known for its amazing ‘secret’ emerald cave, which you can swim into after an 80-meter long tunnel. Beyond the cave lies a beautiful, small, completely enclosed beach formed by a sinkhole. Truly spectacular, but not unexpectedly, very crowded. On the shores you can find a charming little Muslim village a bit south of the resort. Make sure you visit Koh Rok, which is the most spectacular place. This is without a doubt exactly what sailing in Thailand is all about! Snorkeling in this area is amazing and a must see is the sunken lagoon cat about 100 meters east at only a few meters depth, that apparently sunk after a big fire on-board.

DAY 3: Koh Kradan - Koh Muk, two stops (6 nm) - Koh Rok (18 nm)

Koh Rok - Koh Ha Yai (18 nm)

Ha Yai is for sure well worth a stop, however night mooring can only be done in calm weather, because there is no real protection. On the central island there is a small pretty beach perfect for some very good snorkeling. If crowd is not your preference, this place is a sanctuary of freedeom

DAY 4: Koh Rok - Koh Ha Yai (18 nm)

Koh Ha Yai - Koh Racha Yai (36 nm)

This is a nice bay (on the north-western shore) with a modern resort on the beach with a pool and other facilities.

DAY 5: Koh Ha Yai - Koh Racha Yai (36 nm)

Koh Racha Yai – Chalong bay (Phuket), (15 nm).

A bit of a tricky part when sailing in Thailand is water. Some of the yachts have a water maker, which is very helpful, because there actually aren’t too many places where you can fill up your water tanks. The only places you can get water (outside Yacht Haven) are Chalong in the south of Phuket, Krabi and Phi Phi Don (but the water is allegedly brackish).

DAY 6: Koh Racha Yai – Chalong bay (Phuket), (15 nm)
