Why Are Private Boat Tours More Expensive Then Group Tours In Phuket?

Here at 5 Star Marine we specialize in Private Boat Tours and often customers we talk to prior to joining onboard our VIP Private Speedboat ask us why our tours are more expensive than traditional Group Tours.

The reality is quite simple, on a Private Boat Tour we limit the number of people on our boat to just you, your family and friends. This means if it’s just the 2 of you on a romantic cruise or your extended family of 10, the only people on the boat are you and your friends with our crew.

By limiting our boat to just Private Boat Tours we create an exclusivity of experience for you that you could not have on a Group Tour. Group Tours can be more affordable as they are filling there boats to capacity.

For example, let’s assume that most group tour boats can take 48 people on the boat. If you pay, as an example, 2000 THB per person to be on the boat, then that boat will be producing income of 96,000 THB for the day.

Now as a responsible Private Boat Tour company we do not charge anywhere near this 96,000 THB price, in fact you’d be quite surprised by how affordable private boat tours can be.

With that said though you should keep in mind, that when we conduct a private boat tour the entire boat, equipment, crew are all dedicated to making the day out on the sea the most incredible day for just YOU!

We are not focusing on the other 40+ people on the boat. So YES, Private Boat Tours are more expensive, but how often do you get the chance to cruise around the stunning islands of the Andaman Sea in the luxury of a VIP Private Boat?
