Sailing Day Trips from Koh Chang

Sailing a yacht on a day trip from Koh Chang to Koh Wai

Day Trips and Overnight Trips by Yacht

October 2022 update: Unfortunately Mandala Sailing will not be running any more trips. The information below should just be used a guide for anyone interested in skippered yacht hire and rough prices.

Mandala Sailing offers Skippered Charters using a Jeanneau 42’ yacht.

I’ve already listed sailing charters on the site.  They’re more for people who want to spend a few days sailing around the islands south of Koh Chang.  But here’s something different  – day tours by sailing boat.  All the fun of chartering a yacht but for a lower price and without the hassle of actually being able to sail. 

I first met Steve, the owner of Mandala Sailing, 15 years ago when he was still working overseas and looking for a property on the island. For the last 4 years Steve has been running his own sailing charter business based in Koh Chang from Dec to May, and in Koh Tao May to October.

I want to bring the joy of sailing to as many people as possible. All too often, when considering going out on a yacht, the words “exclusive” , “VIP” and “luxury” are thrown around and the prices sky rocket.  That shouldn’t be the case. I love to see families having a great day out.  Giving the helm to a child and watching them puff up with pride is simply awesome.

Prices have been discounted 50% for the 2020 – 21 season due to the times we are in.  So, there’s no better time to go sailing!

There are 2 options of a day trip, and overnight trips from 2 day 1 night, 3 day 2 night , and 4 day 3 night. Also any tailor made trip from 2 days to 10 days is possible.

A day trip is tailored to what the customer wants, but a typical day will be from Salakphet to Long Beach, for a swim by the deserted beach at the old Treehouse resort, then around the end of Koh Chang to Koh Ngam.( Koh Chang’s Phi Phi Island ) and a very beautiful spot.  

You go enjoy the scenery and Steve will prepare some fruit for the sail down to Koh Wai where you can get lunch and snorkel on the reef or try your hand at SUP (Stand Up Paddling).  Then it’s back to Salakphet Bay for 5.30pm.

Or if you want a tailor made trip to specific islands, just let him know.
