ISLAND EXPLORATION IN PHUKET
WITH THE AXOPAR FAMILY
Boat owners in Phuket live life by a
compass, not by a clock…
If you crave escapism and want to get away from the hum-drum crowds and the rules & regulations which
govern our 'normal' lives, then Phuket Island and countless smaller islands that surround it, are quite the
most beautiful and uncomplicated places where anyone can possibly be.
Rocky coves play host to shallow, sandy, unspoilt beaches, where you can drop anchor and swim ashore, stay and
fish for a while, or quite simply beach your Axopar where there's not a single soul to be found.
Imagine that…having your very own island to yourself for the entire day, and the evening as well, if you like, because part of every Axopar's unique and clever deck design has comfortable, overnight sleeping accommodation for at least two people as standard, so with our extra large fuel carrying capacity, there's never any real need to turn for home, at least not because the sun has gone down, that's for sure.

Build a small fire and grill some chicken and fish on the beach, sit back, unwind and relax as you take another icecold beer from the wet-bar package and the top-loading refrigerator you so wisely specified when you ordered that new Axopar.
Wake up on board feeling as comfortable as if you had spent a night in your own bed, then take a deck shower while you plan your next 'pinch me, I must be dreaming' moment ahead.
This is snorkelling and SCUBA diving nirvana where you'll be glad you have an easy-to-handle Axopar that can rapidly and safely take you to the world's best dive sites where exotic fish, coral gardens and plant habitation thrive underneath a clear emerald sea.
This entire region in fact is an explorer's paradise, so anyone looking for longer distance journeys and extended overnight stays will find enhanced weather protection available from our enclosable Cabin, Aft Cabin and Sports Cabin versions, with fully opening canvas roofs and twin side-opening sliding doors.
Home to some of Thailand's most beautiful beaches, Phuket is a rain forested, mountainous island in the Andaman Sea and at 550sq km is Thailand's largest individual island.
It's land area is roughly the same size as Singapore and is surrounded by many smaller islands adding a further 70 sq km to its total land mass area.
The capital is Phuket City, home to many shop-houses and busy and colourful outside markets, and the main resort town being Patong with its many nightclubs, bars and discos.
The entire region is an explorer's paradise where 45 miles northwest of the top of Phuket you'll find the famous Similan Islands with the Surin Islands another 45 miles north again. Both destinations have world class diving and snorkelling opportunities
