3 miles from Koh Maisi Lek
Further south, Koh Raet provides similar protection for the bay and makes for a good year round anchorage. Anchor in 6-7 metres off the Captain Hook Resort, which has a dinghy jetty. In the southwest season, if the swell gets uncomfortable, move to the lee of Koh Raet. There’s no passable channel between Koh Raet and Koh Kut.
The mooring in the bay is for yachts wishing to fill water tanks, but ask the staff to explain the procedure. The dive mooring on the southeast of Koh Reat marks the ‘Temple Statues’ dive where the bottom is littered with these relics.
Fireflies can be seen in the small creek that leads to a waterfall from the Baan Manok Resort restaurant.
