|SAILING AROUND SAMUI|
|Sailing in the gulf of Siam|
|The shallow warm waters around the Samui archipelago with
its 80 tropical islands make sailing a very enjoyable and safe
The waves never reach more than 8 feet in height and there is always an island within a day sailing distance!
|There are plenty of remote bays for shelter where you can find soft sandy beaches and a big variety of underwater life with colorful coral reefs which is one of the highlights on every boat trip!|
There is a good number of day sailors, dhingies and especially catamarans available at
Samui Ocean Sports in Chaweng.
|For day and overnight
cruising to the neighboring islands,
there are a growing number of charter boats available.
|From May - October the southwest-monsoon with its calm sea and clear sky comes complete with fair winds for sailing, though it can get pretty hot during these months.|
|October - December the northeast monsoon with its raining season can create winds up to 25 knots or more and gives sailing more of an adventures touch, where you can test your skills in gusty winds and eight feet waves!|
|January - April is the most preferred time for an excursion on the water; perfect climate with steady northeast winds gives you the best chance for an enjoyable cruise and great water conditions for snorkeling and diving.|

is a unique experience and for sure one of the prime sites to
go sailing! Hotels in Bophut Beach area
