Introducing Shipwrecked

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls I am extremely proud to present to you, Koh Phangan’s newest and best trip! Shipwrecked. The aptly named trip – like all of our others – is much more than a normal tour, it is a combination of boat trip, booze cruise, activities, games and beach escape. Have a gander at this short video and you’ll see for yourself what’s involved.

Until now this epic two day one night boat/beach party was only available to the lucky TruTravellers who were on one of our main tours. We have been running the trip a while as part of our longer Thailand tours because,

a) we love Bottle Beach so much, and

b) we are passionate about showing people there is sooo much more to Phangan then just Full Moon.

However, in an effort to show everyone the best bits of the island and create an awesome trip for people to do which gives them the opportunity to see a different side of the island and something to do so they can stay longer.

The trip involves a day boat party with a free bar on board our awesome boat with music and games. We stop for snorkeling, chilling and to see a waterfall (if it’s the right season) and after this it only gets better when we are dropped at Bottle Beach (one of our favorite spots in the world) to continue the party.

Bottle Beach is a very secluded beach up in the North of the island which reminds us of how backpacking in Thailand was 10 years ago. There’s nothing on it apart from a couple of resorts, usually we are only there with a handful of other guests (so we basically get the beach to ourselves), and we stay in really cool little beach bungalows right on the water which have been the same for years.

Here’s a short video we made from a trip a while back when we went to meet up with a group on the beach to give you some idea of how beautiful and special a place it is:

Anyway, in the evening we can watch the sunset from the beach with cocktail in hand then have our own private beach party with campfire, fire shows, games, lanterns, bioluminescence (glow in the dark algae) and dancing into the night.

Wake up in the morning to the sound of gentle waves rolling onto the white sand, happily the view when you open the door is usually enough to cure the hangover from the day before, and if that isn’t then a dip in the sea should do the trick. The morning and early afternoon are free to chill on the beach, swim, kayak, build sandcastles or top up the tan, if we are lucky and conditions are good then our mate Jamie from Wake Up Wake Boarding will come round in his speed boat and anyone who wants to can do some optional wake boarding or wake surfing which is just about the most fun thing we can think of to do of an afternoon. There is an additional charge but as Jamie is such a nice guy he does it for about of about 600THB per session to cover fuel & expenses. Which is very cheap for a wake boarding session especially with such a master teacher – You’d be hard pushed to find it anywhere cheaper than that. Here’s another video of a wake boarding trip we took with Jamie a few months back to show you how awesome it is!

And here’s a quick wake surf one in case u wondered what that is!

After a nice day on a beautiful beach we will jump back on the boat to be taken back round to Thong Sala, Baan Tai or Haad Rin. On the way back theres more music and another free bar on the boat so those of you with enough stamina can carry on partying and making the most of the free beer for another hour or two, if you’d rather kick back soak up some rays and chill then that’s fine too! We arrive back at about 5.30pm which gives you enough time to head back to your accommodation, shower, change, have some food and/or a nap and meet us all back in Haad Rin for the afterparty at Sandcastle Beach Club!

I think anyone who has done it will agree that it’s an awesome two days and well worth the 2800THB it costs. Literally the only other things you pay for on the trip are food and drink on the beach (lunch and booze on boat is included) and the wake boarding if you choose to do it. Whilst we encourage most people to do the full experience so they can see what it’s like to spend a night on a beach as magical as Bottle beach with a group of fellow fun seeking backpackers, we do also offer a one day option for 1500THB. With this option you don’t stay at Bottle beach but it’s still a great boat party/booze cruise/day trip with free bar and plenty of good times as well as a great way for those with less time to see some more of the island and its beauty.

Here are the details of both options and exactly what you get for the ticket price:
