The Mastercraft Star is the original high-performance vessel, allowing Amanpuri guests to experience a wide array of high-speed ocean thrills – wakeboard, wakeskate, hydrofoil or old-school waterski. Amanpuri’s seasoned watersports team are on hand to guide guests through new skills or help build on previous experience to achieve daring new feats.
For those wishing to take the pace down a notch, pedal yourself fit aboard a Hobie Mirage Eclipse – a large paddleboard with handlebars for ultimate stability. Take a seat on an easy-to-use Schiller Bike to enjoy a leisurely ride exploring the waters – a wonderful way to connect with nature at a gentle pace. Take a stand-up paddleboard around the bay, or slow right down and perfect your poise with a private yoga lesson on the board.
For seasoned scuba divers, boats depart daily to the best sites around Phuket, including Shark Point, Koh Dok Mai, Anemone Reef and the King Cruiser Wreck. For those new to the sport or eager to improve, a range of PADI courses are available, with introductory lessons in the resort pool. Amanpuri also has a selection of vessels available for private charter to explore the seas on your own itinerary, serviced by a full crew.
