Private Speedboat Hire in Khao Lak

Hi All,

We are travelling to Khao Lak in February and want to charter a speedboat for the day with captain. We are also going to do other trips but we wanted a nice day just motoring around Khao lak with a nice champagne lunch etc! We have contacted The Sarojin where we are staying but it's pretty expensive, over £1,000 for their boat for the day!!

Does anyone know of any companies who would be able to do this for us?

Thanks in advance.

Janie :-)

There are some longtail boat trips along the KL coast thaty start from Bang Niang Beach just past the Ramada that I am sure you will be able to negotiate a special hire rate of a lot less than £1000! They'd probably SELL you a longtail boat for that! LOL :o)

You don't see many launches cruising the KL coastline to be honest. In fact other than the Sarojin's I can't recall seeing any.

Maybe you can contact some tour operators who run boat trips and see if you can exclusively hire a boat for the day.

Just a thought.

hello

You could have a look at www.phuket-travel.com click on private charter. Not sure if it can be arranged from khao lak you might have to go to Phuket.

WHAT, £1000 a day i am sure you could buy a fleet of longtail boats & their skipers for that price.It is obscene to be quoted that price,i hpoe you do not consider paying this as it will have the eventual knock on effect.

Everything is relative. The Sarojin is pretty unique in Khao Lak and no way will their prices for a luxury launch influence local longtail prices. Perhaps if they were very popular but I don't think they do many charters at that price. Like anywhere else though if several people want to share a very special - and expensive - private charter, then that's the price on the ticket.

Thanks for all your replies!! I agree I probably won;t pay around £1K for a day!! I'm sure it would be amazing but I will look into the longtail boats as i hadn't thought of that and didn't do it last time so always an option!!

Phuket would be easier to get charters from I guess so I'm sure we may be a little limited.

I'll keep looking and really appreciate the input folks!

Thanks :-)

Hi Janie,

Limestone adventures have various speedboats available for hire for half or full days.

Depending on tour and boat the prices range from around £300 to £3500!! The bigger price tag does get you a sunseeker tho'!

Take a look at this website:
