Sunset Beach BBQ and Dolphin Spotting

Gather your friends and family for an unforgettable experience on the water. When you book our private Sunset Beach BBQ and Dolphin Spotting Tour, you gain exclusive use of one of our luxury speedboats, so you may explore the islands however suits you best suits. Unlike on group excursions, where you may feel hurried along with other visitors to meet a set schedule, you won’t have to worry about missing anything with us.

This special private cruise is the perfect blend of snorkelling, dolphin spotting and traditional Thai style private beach BBQ. All bookings are bespoke, but as a general idea you would depart from our pier in Boat Lagoon for a family friendly afternoon cruise around the stunning surrounding islands. Experience snorkelling in crystal clear waters where you will get to see a colourful and exotic marine life; and remember all snorkelling equipment is included on board for your convenience.

As you move into the afternoon, you can take part in our respectful dolphin spotting programme which can be tailored to your requirements. At 5 Star Marine, we understand that nothing compares to seeing dolphins in their natural habitat, and getting the opportunity to witness them in the wild is a spectacular experience. So, this tour gives you the chance to potentially see a pod of dolphins; and as naturally inquisitive creatures they often come right up and swim alongside our speedboats giving you an unforgettable close-up experience.

At sunset, indulge in a private beach BBQ featuring authentic Thai style beef and chicken satay which will be grilled on the beach for you by our attentive crew. In between dips in the refreshing turquoise sea, indulge in a ‘Mocktail of The Day’ on the fine white sands as you watch the sky light up in a thousand colours for an unforgettable tropical sunset experience.

Why 5 Star Marine?

By selecting to go on our private Sunset Beach BBQ and Dolphin Spotting Tour, you will ensure that you discover the islands in the best possible conditions and are placed in the perfect spot for an ultimate sunset viewing. Although 5 Star Marine cannot guarantee that the dolphins will come to play, they are experienced at knowing the best times and locations to maximise your chances of seeing these playful animals.

About The Location

All of our VIP tours are private so you can customize to get an experience that is perfect for you. However, to give you an idea, a sample Sunset Beach BBQ and Dolphin Spotting Tour itinerary could be:

  • Enjoy a family-friendly afternoon trip from our Phuket pier
  • Experience snorkelling in crystal clear waters
  • Cruise around for an exciting afternoon dolphin spotting
  • Relax, have a dip and enjoy a private beach BBQ at sunset

Dolphin spotting usually takes place around Mai Ton Island which is in between Coral Island and the Khai Islands. Coral Island is a relatively protected island, around a 25 minute speedboat ride from 5 Star Marine’s pier in Boat Lagoon. In high wind conditions, this can extend to around 35 minutes. Khai Islands, are inside the Bay and so protected from the wind in most cases. The Khai Islands are generally calm and just a 20 minute boat ride from our Pier. Please check with 5 Star Marine for a recommendation on sea conditions prior to departure.
