Phuket, Thailand is a very popular holiday destination for many different types of tourists. From the young adults looking to party hard late into the night in Patong. Luxury travelers looking to stay in a stunning villa on the hills of Phuket overlooking the Andaman Sea. Backpackers and students on a year out traveling, and families looking for a mix of stunning tropical beaches, great food and family-friendly activities.

Today we are looking at what are the best 5 Star Marine Phuket boat tours for families.

Just to clarify our definition of families. Yes, of course, we know that a “family” could be many different things, but for this blog and video, we are defining families as anyone with children under 12.

So, let’s look at what are the best private boat Tours for Families.

When looking for an easy, close-by island day trip that is good for families, snorkelling, and relaxing on the beach you can’t beat the Khai Islands.

These three islands are very close together and are accessible in only 15 to 20 minutes from the 5 Star Marine pier at Boat Lagoon.

The Khai Islands are made up of 3 separate islands:

  • Khai Nai
  • Khai Nau
  • Khai Nok

These Islands are especially good for beginner snorkellers as they offer the opportunity to snorkel straight off the beach and experience a plethora of tropical fish.

Each of the three Islands offers something slightly different for you to experience

This stunning Phuket island has 2 main beaches (Long Beach and Banana Beach), where you can find a handful of restaurants, enjoy a few different snorkelling spots or just relax on its sandy beaches.

Coral Island, is also known locally as Koh He, is an easy and family-friendly day-trip destination from Phuket and you can combine it with other tours as well. More of that later. It will take around 30 – 40 mins to get to Coral Island from the 5 Star Marine Pier.

The beach at Coral Island is stunning, just what you are looking for when you think of a tropical paradise beach. The white sands and the clear tropical water, make this island truly awesome. The snorkeling right off the beach is possibly some of the best in Phuket. It’s so easy just to walk from the beach right into some stunning reefs.

You can climb up over a small hill and get to a stunning viewpoint and it’s a very easy path, and you might even get to see the islands mascots the Hornbill. There are many flying all over the island and sometimes even into the restaurant.

At Coral Island, you can also rent a canoe or banana boat as well as parasailing.

You can also combine the Coral Island tour with an afternoon stop at Mai Ton on the way back to try your luck spotting the dolphins there. See below:

You can add this trip to either of the tours above and it can be tailored to your requirements.

Nothing compares to seeing dolphins in their natural habitat, and getting the opportunity to witness them in the wild is a spectacular experience.

Of, course we can never guarantee that you will see the dolphins but we do know the best times to go and see if they are there.

Maiton Island is not just a place to see Phuket dolphins you can also go snorkeling there as well. There is nothing like jumping off a boat for young kids to make them feel alive, and to be fair, adults should do it to. Once you have jumped off the underwater world comes to life.
