kia-ora-homepage2Don’t dream it … experience it … Sail away in luxury to an isolated beach or a colourful reef aboard the purpose built day charter sailing catamaran “Kia Ora”.

    Sailing daily from Big Buddha Beach to a destination around Koh Samui Island or Koh Phangan island we take special care to ensure our guests have the facilities, the space, the food, the beverages and the atmosphere to have a truly memorable Thailand holiday experience.


    Koh Samui is a relatively untouched area in terms of sailing. Currently there are no marinas available so the limited number of yachts tend to be used by determined locals or visitors who make the effort to bring their own boat on their Thailand holiday. Water sport activity is also very limited, primarily related to diving or jet skis.

    Sailing in the Samui Archipelago with Kia Ora Catamaran Charters can therefore feel exclusive while still being close to the comforts of your Koh Samui hotel.

    Kia Ora is the only day sailing or sunset cruise catamaran charter operation of its kind in Koh Samui.

    We are focused on providing a high standard of service from the time we pick you up from your Koh Samui hotel through to the time we return you.

    We provide all food and beverages so the only requirement from you is to bring your swimming suit, perhaps a book to read, an appetite for great food and drink and be prepared for a relaxing time out on the water.

    Kia Ora operates all year round taking between 2 and 35 people sailing daily. It is perfect for a romantic honeymoon sunset cruise, a family group private charter, weddings or a corporate event, but please ensure you book early as we do fill up quickly – especially in high season when sailing in the Samui archipelago becomes a great way to get away from the crowds in Chaweng Beach.
