Maiton Island is located just 9 kilometers away from south coast of Phuket. And since it’s a private island there is no public transportation so you have to go there via speedboat, catamaran or a private boat.
Private boat suits those who don’t want to travel in a group and have a customized schedule. It’s not the fastest way to honeymoon island but you will have as many stops as you wish.
The second option is the most common way to get to Koh Maiton, which is travelling with group tour via speedboat. It goes fast and costs around 1400 THB per person. Together with Maiton the tour includes Racha Island and Coral Island – these three islands cover the most beautiful snorkeling spots of the south Andamans. Usually the voyage is calm however on occasion can be a little choppy, so if you get sea sick easily then we would recommend using the other two options.
The third way is a bit more exclusive – a Catamaran Trip. This option costs 2900 THB per person and allows you to travel in the most comfortable way. It is suited perfectly for juniors and elderly as the Catamaran provides a really smooth ride, and it makes many stops and gives you more impressions of the wonderful scenery along your journey than does the speedboat or private boat. You can snorkel and fish right from the boat. Another pleasant bonus is Sunset Dinner, which is also included in the tour.
