We had a great time sailing with Steve and his super friendly and fun crew. Great food, so much to eat, great sunsets, great snorkelling. I slept under the stars, so relaxing. We are planning our next trip, for even a longer period of time, 10-12 days, into Myanmar or deep south of Thailand. Can't wait

We were group of five guys from Finland who wanted to do something different on our holiday. Captain Colin & Oiy were great, thank you for your amazing thai food Oiy! Boat was also very nice and you really should rent cayaks and paddle boards for your trip. It was really nice to explore islands with cayaks and if you have not tried these yet, now it's a good chance. All in all, days were hot, beer was cold, food was excellent and we had fun!

We took a last minute day out on the catamaran mahayana with two other couples. We now wished we would have booked a four or five day trip.
From the first contact on whattsapp everything ran smoothly and we got everything and more than we expected.
Amazing food, great captain and a very enthusiast boat hand.
Steve is very knowledgeable and helped make the day.
If you've found the reviews contact quickly before this is fully booked, wish we could keep it a secret. Lol
See you next time we are in Thailand,
Thanks for the best day we have had in Phucket.

We had an absolutely amazingly relaxing 7 days on Mahayana with Steve, Netitia & Oud.
The boat was fabulous and Netitia's food (and humour) were outstanding. We were made to feel totally at home on the boat and Steve's hosting skills and knowledge of the Andaman sea were superb. We spent the days chilling, snorkelling, kayaking and, of course, lots of swimming. Any special requests (including an underwater photo shoot) were fully catered for. It was fantastic to visit and overnight near the islands once all the day trippers had left, ending the day with a G&T followed by superb food and company. We'll be back on the Mahayana as soon as we can be!

We had an amazing time on the beautiful sailboat "Nakamal". Dieter and Ay were such gracious and caring hosts for our trip. Dieter, our accomplished captain, has so much experience and time in this area of the world that it made our trip seem effortless. We visited places that were away from the normal crowds and Dieter knew exactly when to arrive and depart, so we missed all of the "day tourists". He was full of interesting stories and was a delight to be around. Also, we can not say enough to fully describe the quality and variety of food that Ay prepared for us everyday. We had so many great dishes (also accompanied by wonderful wines) that we felt spoiled. Our children loved all the food and Ay made sure that everyone had enough food and that all our needs were met. This made our trip so much more enjoyable than we ever imagined. We snorkeled everyday and enjoyed the SUPs that were on the boat ready for use anytime. The thing that resonated the most with my wife and myself was the quality time and PEACE that we had with our children. We have a 13 yr. and 15 yr. old, they are normal, internet connected teens and we worried how the trip would be for them. But, to our amazement, they quickly relaxed into the slow pace of living on a sailboat. We all lounged around together and spent hours laying on the "trampoline" section of the boat reading and playing games together. There is also a ton of room on the front deck of the boat, complete with huge beanbag chairs to pile up and lay around on. This was our favorite area of the boat (and most charters we saw did not utilize this area the way "Nakamal" did). It was a true gift to be able to reconnect with our kids in such a meaningful way. We are all talking about when we can do another trip!
