Perhentian Islands, Malaysia – July 1-12
Our newest Sailing Adventure!
Join 38ft Athena Catamaran on an epic voyage from Ko Samui to the remote and beautiful Perhentian Islands. The Perhentian Islands lie approximately 50 NMs from the coast of Central Eastern Malaysia. The remote positioning of these Islands has allowed its environment of crystal clear waters, sugar sand beaches and some great fishing and snorkeling to remain pristine for us today. This 800 nautical mile round trip journey from our own beautiful Ko Samui Island in Thailand to the Perhentian Islands in Malaysia will not only be a great vacation, but a valuable offshore learning experience with 4 nights at sea in total, an international port entry and exit and you will definitely have the chance to put your skills to the test. Our Athena 38ft Catamaran will present you with a comfortable platform to complete this offshore passage whether trimming her new sails to perfection, viewing playful dolphins under the bow netting or doing navigation and chart work while relaxing under Katiti’s hard top cockpit, you will be quite comfortable during this great trip.
