We do encourage our guests to plan a similar Private Charter Phuket program to our pre-existing charter boat tours found on our tours page that Simba Sea Trips are renowned for and have proven successful in the past.
Of course we are able to customise and tailor your day out on the water if the above itineraries do not suit, and we are happy to fit in your special request wherever possible (subject to boat availability).
To make your private boat tour as memorable as possible, make sure to consider the most memorable locations in the region.

It’s no surprise that most Phuket tourists love to travel to the Phi Phi Islands. Put simply, the crystal clear waters and spectacular waters are impossible to beat and a major reason why so many of our guests request a Phi Phi island private tour.
Its popularity has soared once again following the reopening of Maya Bay to tourists (the stunning location of Hollywood hit movie ‘The Beach’) and with tourism back on the agenda post-covid lockdowns.
The main benefit of our Phi Phi Island Private Boat Tour is that you’ll get to experience the sensational attractions largely in the absence of the crowds that you’d confront as part of a standard boat tour with other tour operators.
Another extremely popular destination is James Bond Island (Ko Tapu) and many of our customers incorporate this stop into their private boat tours. The popularity of a James Bond Island Private Tour is easy to understand. The scene of the Bond Classic, ‘Man with a Golden Gun’, this island location is as picturesque as it gets… anywhere in the world. While most private tours to Ko Tapu start and finish at this location, with Simba this will just be one stop on a memorable journey through Phang Nga Bay and beyond!
We have multiple existing options to choose from in addition to adding it as part of a private boat tour. You can choose between our existing morning program and enjoy a delicious lunch at a tropical island restaurant, or take in all the major sites of Phang Nga Bay on our Sunset tour experiencing the amazing rock formations late in the day.
Renowned for its majestic limestone cliffs, heavenly isles, and glorious mangrove forests, Krabi is a coveted Phuket tourist destination. While the driving distance from Phuket to the Krabi islands exceeds 180 km, journeying to this glorious region by private speedboat requires traveling a much shorter distance of approximately 50 km. Not only does a Krabi Island tour get you there quicker, but it also gets you there much, much earlier, ensuring that you can immerse yourself in the magnificent surroundings of the region in the absence of sizeable crowds.
Krabi private boat tours cover all the key sites, including the beautiful rock formations at Koh Hong Krabi, the vivid green waters of the nearby Hong Lagoon, snorkeling at Chicken Island, the truly stunning Railay Beach and equally impressive Grand Centara Resort.
Revitalize your spirit with a private boat tour of Krabi, with breathtaking views and locations that forge memories that last a lifetime. The natural beauty of the region creates an experience that you will likely never forget.
Over the years we have received more and more requests for a kayaking component to be added to our boat tours. Well, we’ve listened and in 2022 Simba Sea Trips is now fully equipped to provide this option. The benefits of including kayaking as part of your private boat tour itinerary are two-fold.
Firstly, kayaking is one of the most intimate ways to explore the Phuket islands as it allows you to go places that our speedboats can’t go. Paddle your way close to shore and explore the undergrowth, or traverse to caves that otherwise can’t be observed from so close.
Secondly, by spending a majority of the private boat tour on a kayak helps us to reduce fuel emissions. The more time we spend paddling around, the less time our engine is running. Spending over 18 years in the Phuket region, and witnessing its beauty on a daily basis, we are very considerate of protecting the region. Anytime we can switch off the engine and paddle around in a kayak is an added bonus!
Not only does our popular coral delight program explore the region’s most beautiful coral reefs but we also provide this option as part of our private boat tours. Two of the most highly recommended locations for snorkeling are at Coral island and the private Mai Thon Island to the south of Phuket.
We can arrive and explore these beautiful reefs before the crowds of other tour boats arrive. Be amazed at the awesome variety of fish and corals at these locations, and perhaps even get lucky as a local dolphin pod (which regularly inhabits the area) drops by for a visit
After snorkeling either of these two beautiful locations, lounge around in the sea at the cliff base of majestic limestone karsts that makes these regions famous, just like you would see at the Phi Phi islands and Phang Nga Bay.
Pricing for our private boat tours in Phuket will be dependent on season, preferred itinerary and total passenger numbers.
When it comes to experiencing Phuket as a tourist, there is always so much to do and so little time to do it. While many of our guests are more than satisfied with our proven, standard tours, we understand some are craving their own adventure. For over 18 years the Simba team has helped guests to craft private boat tours that appeal to their own personal interests and it is for this reason alone that we continue to often customized tours to our loyal customers.
The only limitations…
Whilst the day on the water is completely your call, there are some standard rules that all our tours need to abide by:
Pickup from your hotel normally occurs at approximately 5am for a 6am departure from the marina on the day of your tour. We return you to your hotel at approximately 3pm.These times are flexible, however for planning purposes we spend around 8 hours on tour. Hotel pickup is complimentary on Phuket island only.
Price shown excludes 2% booking fee and alcohol purchases. Balance is to be paid by cash (baht), Visa, or Mastercard on the morning of departure (not American Express).
We will email you an exact pick-up time at midday the day before the tour. Should changes be made to bookings within 5 days of the tour date (date change, tour change, passenger booking reduction) Simba reserves the right to apply a 750 baht per person booking amendment fee.
