Some inspiration for the winter season
Words by PELORUS
Working exclusively with a network of industry leaders, we have put together some creative and exciting experiences for yacht charter this winter season. With flexible itineraries, unbounded exploration and cultural immersion, winter onboard a luxury yacht has never looked so colourful.
TRIALS AND TRIBES IN THAILAND AND MYANMAR
The islands off the coast of Thailand and Myanmar offer a taste of this paradise with verdant tropical rainforests and staggering wildlife. Chartering a yacht in this idyllic location across the winter season will allow you to witness one of the most beautiful regions in the world.
Sail to the stunning Surin Islands, home of the ancient sea-faring Moken people. With your Moken guide, learn the art of spear fishing with targets and free dive techniques or hike through the jungle in pursuit of supplies for the village.
Continue your journey to the Mergui Archipelago where another adventure begins. Dividing into teams, you will be cast away on a remote island with little more than your comrades and an expert survival guide. Hike across the island, forage for food and build a raft to float you back to the yacht; the winning team will be the first to return!
