Transfers to/from your hotel in Krabi, Klong Muang, Tub Kaek beach or Ao Nang are included, as well as lunch and drinking water. If you stay at Railay beach, please take one of the many shuttle boats to Ao Nam Mao pier so we can pick you up from there. Please note that the national park entrance fee is excluded and costs THB 400 per adult and THB 200 per child. No crampy boats or a rushed experience and an outstanding service: you’ll get what you pay for. A quality trip to the Phi phi islands!
At around 8:00 in the morning our driver, together with an English speaking guide, will pick you up from your hotel. The air conditioned minivan takes you in about 1 hour to the pier. We should arrive there at 9:00. We depart from the pier by speed boat and head to Bamboo island. Explore the coral while snorkeling, or relax on the white sandy beach. The boat is equipped with masks and snorkels. Have a look at the stunning under water wildlife here!
Then the boat takes you to Lohsama bay. Another marvel of nature, this bay has crystal clear waters and beautiful ‘mushroom-like’ rocks towering out of the water. Here you can go snorkeling or swimming as well.Our next stop is Pileh bay, a lagoon of sparkling turquoise water. Completely encircled by limestone karsts. This site has no beach, but our boat will anchor here so you can jump in and enjoy the refreshing water.
Then we head to Maya bay. This bay is famous from the Hollywood movie ‘The beach’. Starring Leonardo diCaprio, most of the scenes in the movie were filmed here. Because of this it’s also the most popular and crowded bay. Still it’s a beautiful sight and you can relax a bit here and enjoy the surroundings.
Hungry yet? Time for lunch! The speed boat takes us to Phi Phi Don, where we have a Thai buffet lunch (vegetarian options available) in a beach restaurant. Try a Thai curry or Pad thai and enjoy a refreshing drink. The lunch is included in this tour, as well as drinks.
When you feel rejunevated it’s time for the last stop of the day: Monkey beach. This beach has a beautiful coral reef where you can enjoy the last snorkeling of the day. When we’re done here, we get back to the pier. From there it’s about an hour driving back to your hotel, where you should arrive at around 16:30. A day full of sights and memories never to forget!
