7 Night cruise departing from Penang to Phuket onboard Panorama II. Hotel stay pre-cruise in Penang.

Discover the pristine islands, hidden waterfalls and laidback villages of the Andaman Sea between Penang and Phuket.

Discover the spectacular west coast of Malaysia and Thailand on a new small-ship adventure cruise with Peregrine. Between the more popular holiday destinations of Penang and Phuket, there’s a medley of laidback islands and villages to explore, each with their own charms – and often far fewer travellers to contend with. Live it up in idyllic Langkawi, choose from leisure and adventure activities around Ao Nang, join in local life in laidback Ko Yao Yai, visit waterfalls tucked away in the jungle, and use the Andaman Sea as your swimming pool. With comfortable accommodation onboard, snorkelling and kayaking equipment, and knowledgeable local guides at your service, this is South East Asian paradise done in style.

Day 1 Penang
Selamat datang! Welcome to Malaysia. Make your way to your hotel for your first night.

Day 2 Penang
After breakfast in your hotel, tour the old town of Penang, taking in the historic shophouses, narrow streets and unique atmosphere. Enjoy lunch at a hawker food centre, where your leader will select a variety of interesting local dishes for the group to try. Your transfer to the boat will be by rickshaw and set sail for Langkawi at around 5 pm. After a safety briefing and welcome cocktail, sit down to your first meal on board the Panorama II as we sail overnight to Langkawi.

Day 3 Langkawi
Today, we take a tour to Telaga Tujuh Waterfall. On the way, you’ll see this is a town that has retained its everyday local life and spectacular natural beauty despite it popularity among travellers. Enjoy a free evening in Langkawi to enjoy the local food and nightlife or have dinner on board the Panorama II, the choice is yours.

Day 4 Tarutao National Park
Depart Langkawi for Taruatao early this morning. A day of snorkelling, swimming, kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding is yours to enjoy in the beautiful waters around the island. For lunch, feast on a beach barbecue on Adang Island. Set sail for Koh Rok, having dinner en route. Spend the night at anchor at Ko Rok, one of many beautiful islands with white sands and blue-green waters against a jungle backdrop.

Day 5 Taruatao National Park
We spend a second day in the idyllic surroundings of Adang Island and the Tarutao National Park. This evening we sail for Koh Rok.

Day 6 Ko Rok
Spend the morning enjoying the spoils of Ko Rok. We will have a picnic on the beach before returning to the Panorama II for the sail to Ao Nang. We arrive in time for a late dinner at your leisure in town.

Day 7 Ao Nang
Enjoy a free morning in Ao Nang with some time to partake in a range of optional activities. Whip up some local specialties in a Thai cooking class, spot colourful tropical fish on a snorkelling trip, take the adventure to the next level with some rock climbing, unwind with a traditional Thai massage, or make tracks on two wheels to a local waterfall. Another great option is to take a longtail boat to Railay Beach or around Phang Nga Bay. Alternatively, simply stay on the Panorama II, and relax. You’re free to check out the nightlife of lively Ao Nang with a free evening.

Day 8 Koh Yao Yai
Climb aboard a songtheaw for a tour with a local guide. Koh Yao Yoi is known for beautiful beaches, friendly Muslim fisherman and diverse birdlife, not to mention some delicious local seafood. We will visit a local village for a home cooked meal, jungle walk and perhaps to try some local pastimes such as coconut weaving or shooting with a handmade bow and arrow. Today is your last chance for some swimming before the trip draws to a close so we will head to an island beach for a final dip. For our last night on board, it is the Captain’s dinner. Enjoy an a la carte meal while taking in a no doubt spectacular sunset. Relax and unwind as the night is spent at anchor.

Day 9 Disembark Phuket
Departing early, cruise back to Phuket which is just a short distance away. Disembark after breakfast as the adventure comes to an end.

Launched 2004 and fully renovated in 2015, the Panorama II is your home on the seas. All cabins are finished with handsome wood trims and equipped with modern amenities – including air conditioning and mini-fridge – for your comfort. The restaurant area at the lower deck offers the perfect setting for meals, while the upper deck offers dining al fresco, and is a great spot to soak up the sun with a book.

Our name stems from the word ‘Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company. Since our inception, we’ve broadened our horizons and now offer small group journeys in over 80 countries across all seven continents, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track (without forgoing some of the comforts of home).

Introducing a new a style of travel – a premium cruise without the premium crowds. Think less on-board casinos and more island hopping along the Dalmatian Coast, Cyclades port stops for grilled octopus and fresh olives, or dropping anchor for a swim in some secluded Cuban archipelago. This is Peregrine’s small ship adventure cruising. Welcome aboard.

Conventional big ship cruising is all about life on the boat. What to eat, what to do, which show to catch. Adventure cruising is more about the destination: stopping at little islands the big ships can’t reach, exploring local markets and trying fresh produce, learning a place’s history and culture from local guides who know it best.

These journeys are designed to be low impact. That means there’s fewer passengers on-board, less stress on local communities, and each trip is carbon offset through a range of renewable energy projects. And while the big boats moor out at sea and ferry passengers to land by tender, we can sail straight into port. You can hop on or hop off as you like. It’s convenience and comfort, all in one.
