Ok, you have just arrived at the Chalong anchorage: Welcome!
FUEL AND WATER
For visitors, Chalong’s 720-metre long seven-metre wide jetty is its most noticeable feature: fuel and water are available at the north side of this jetty, they have diesel, petrol (91 unleaded) and water their prices are much the same as the service stations When I go to the fuel dock I throw them one line and hang off by about 3-4 metres, all their hoses are long enough. It creates more space and in the likely event that a 3 engine speedboat passes by at 30 knots you won’t scuff up your top sides.
My other choice for refuelling is the fuel boat, a blue wooden work boat (about 20 meters long) with truck tires as fenders so take their bow line and as you come alongside align your fenders with the tyres to avoid marks on your boat. It is moored 100m north of the starboard channel pylon number 3 on the aproach into Chalong jetty, they have clean diesel and water. Often the crew are sleeping but happy to be woken.
CUSTOMS, IMMIGRATION AND HARBOUR MASTER
The building on the jetty is one-stop customs, immigration and harbour master, check in and check out takes about a half an hour, the officers will assist with the forms. On public holidays or weekends overtime rates apply. They open at 10am, lunch is 12 to 1 and they’re out of there at 3pm. Thai Customs now encourage you to use their electronic check in at: yacht.phuket.go.th. If you can’t access this site check in on arrival is still available. The tourist and marine rescue centre is 100 metres from the start of the jetty. If you need an ambulance you will find it waiting there the telephone number is 1555 or Bankok Hospital ambulance Phone is 1669.
Walk up the jetty road and you’ll find 7/11 stores, bars, dive shops, massage, beauty parlours, laundry service, taxis, bike rental, travel agents, restaurants, post office, internet. Go right at the roundabout (Chalong Circle) and there is a nightmarket, kodak shop, supermarket, newsagent, money changer etc.
DIRECTIONS TO PCYC
Our clubhouse is on the beach front on Chalong bay 300m north up the beach from the jetty towards Phuket town, we are between the big white range marker and the 4 story incomplete building with a green fence. Look for the dinghies on the lines, call in, say hi and find out what’s going on, check our notice board for great deals and our specials board for drinks and food deals. We also rent scooters at the best rate in town.
WANT TO BEACH YOUR BOAT?
Between our clubhouse and the big white lead marker is a big patch of clean hard sand, ideal to beach cats or beachable monos, check it out at low tide. Find your spot and run it in on the next high, then come to the PCYC and enjoy a cold beer while the tide rolls out.
