SEAP Southeast Asia Pilot-1

Anchor anywhere in the bay in 4-5 metres on a sandy bottom. On the southern headland is the Grand Orchid Resort & Spa. To get into Siam Royal View Marina from the anchorage, head southeast toward the resort, then through the port and starboard channel marks into the small river mouth.

The channel is about 1 metre at LAT so deeper draft vessels should plan the incoming tide. Stay mid-channel for a few hundred metres into the compact 24-berth marina, where average depth is around 3 metres.

Ashore is the Siam Royal View Resort with rooms and F&B facilities. It’s a 10-minute drive from the ferry and the main town on Koh Chang. Call VHF Ch19 or 69 for a local guide to assist you into the creek from the bay.
