1. Captain’s Choice Afternoon Experience

If you fancy trying your luck at spotting dolphins, and an afternoon trip is what you had in mind, our helpful team at 5 Star Marine might suggest a version of our dolphin spotting with a sunset beach BBQ afternoon. You could enjoy an unforgettable and memorable private custom boat tour experience to share with your friends and family. You can experience the perfect blend of snorkelling, dolphin spotting and traditional Thai style private beach BBQ.

This is a perfect example of what you can trust 5 Star Marine’s Captain’s Choice to bring you; itineraries which are only available to small and private booking groups, and not offered with any other boat tour company. Here you might celebrate a special occasion and enjoy snorkelling in crystal clear waters in the afternoon prior to taking part in our respectful dolphin spotting programme which of course will be tailored to your requirements on the day. At sunset, the 5 Star Marine team can set up a private beach BBQ with authentic satay and side dishes, BBQed on the beach by our crew whilst you and your private group enjoy a drink on fine white sands as you witness an unforgettable tropical sunset experience.

2. Family Friendly Fun

For the ultimate family-friendly day trips from Phuket, our knowledgeable crew is in the know about all the safest and fun spots. One of the top locations includes the Khai Islands, which are a trio of small islands (Khai Nai, Khai Nau and Khai Nok). They are easy to get to, taking only a short 20-minute private speedboat ride before arriving at your destination.

You will not be rushed, and can take your time to enjoy the private custom boat tour experience. If the children are having fun safely shallow snorkelling directly from the beach, 5 Star Marine will encourage you to relax and enjoy the experience at your own pace. For ease with children, you might want to let us arrange a beach picnic for you, or alternatively suggest children friendly food options. Another stop that is certainly popular with families as it is full of fun activities for children and adults alike is Coral Island. At Banana Beach Club you will find a large open style restaurant serving a good selection of dishes, plus massages, canoes and plenty of Instagram-worthy set ups. It is both kid and adult friendly with big loungers, tables in the shade, swings and fun areas to explore for all

3. Captains Choice Tropical Paradise

A private speedboat trip to the Phi Phi Islands is a bucket-list experience and the team at 5 Star Marine are well briefed on all the top spots. This area is a collection of six small islands off the coast of Thailand, with Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh being the main islands.


Phi Phi Islands are known for their stunning scenery, turquoise waters and breath-taking beaches. If your daytrip on your Captain’s Choice takes you to this area, you will of course have the freedom to explore the islands at your own pace and according to your interests. Whether you want to go snorkelling, swimming, soak up some rays or simply relax on the beach, we can help craft an itinerary together that is perfect for you and your private group. Perhaps stop off at Monkey Beach where you’ll be greeted by playful macaques, or visit Bamboo Island where you can enjoy a picnic lunch and snorkel among vibrant coral reefs and tropical fish. If you fancy a hidden cove with emerald-green waters, then Pileh Lagoon is perfect spot for a swim to cool off.

4. Private Bioluminescence Captain’s Choice Tour

Immerse yourself in a breath-taking afternoon and early evening excursion with our fully customizable tour, combining the chance to witness the spectacular natural phenomenon of bioluminescence with exhilarating sea canoeing activities. This new itinerary will be tailored to your individual preferences and the sea conditions on the day, taking you on a mesmerizing journey through

the waters surrounding Phang Nga bay. Here, you will have the opportunity to witness the natural wonder of bioluminescence, (which is the capacity of creatures to emit light and can be found in numerous forms in the Phang Nga Bay area such as in the plankton which is present here).

Spend some time on a sea canoe, paddling out to discover hidden caves and lagoons in the Phang Nga Bay area, allowing you to access some of the hidden lagoons. After sunset you may be lucky enough to see the bioluminescence, as the sun sets then light from the plankton is more visually impressive.

5. Escape to Paradise

Feel free to consult with our crew regarding your preferences, whether it be a stunning island, pristine white sandy beaches, a snorkelling adventure, a rustic lunch or just an overall escape to paradise. In this case, our Captain’s Choice might recommend a private speedboat day tour to Raya or Racha Islands, providing you with a personalized experience tailored to your desires. Theses islands provide an

idyllic day trip location to relax and appreciate nature. Offering a balanced mix of peaceful, serene settings together with incredible marine life and some of Thailand’s finest snorkelling areas, these quiet, tropical white powdery beaches and crystal-clear blue seas.

Located under 1 hour from 5 Star Marine’s base in Boat Lagoon, you relax and unwind at the Racha Islands, enjoying peaceful nature walks, beach time and great snorkelling.
