The Basics

The unbridled popularity of the Phi Phi Islands means that travelers enjoy a wide range of visiting options and activities, such as swimming and snorkeling, rock climbing, Thai boxing, and cooking classes.

Day trips are available from Phuket, Ko Lanta, and Krabi via either a speedboat or express ferry, and typically cover Phi Phi highlights such as Maya Bay, Bamboo Island, Monkey Beach, Viking Cave, and James Bond Island in Phang Nga National Park. Island tours generally include a tour guide, hotel pickup and drop-off, a buffet lunch, and free time to enjoy some of Asia’s best beaches.

This was well-organised and we were very well looked after by the guides. There were plenty of drinks and fresh fruit supplied throughout the day, and lunch was great. The islands are beautiful and the waters are spectacular. I have never snorkeled before and it was a fantastic experience which I will never forget.

Early Bird Small Group - Phi Phi Islands Sunrise Tour with Seaview Lunch Buffet
The crew was excellent and made sure we were safe and kept the boat clean at all times. I was happy that our boat was closed on top. It was a great and memorable experience.

Best experience in Thailand

Phi Phi Sunrise from Phuket
Wow, Jane and her team really took care of us. This was my groups favorite part of our trip to Thailand. It was truest worth waking early to be the first to step foot on bamboo island and go snorkeling. My boyfriend does not know how to swim so our guide Jane swam alongside him every moment to ensure his safety and gave him a private snorkeling lesson while teaching him about all the different varieties of fish we were lucky enough to see. 10/10 recommend to all staying on Phuket.

Private Phi Phi & Rang Yai Islands Snorkeling Trip w/ Seaview Lunch by Speedboat
Good staff and guide, boat was clean and worked well. Took off on time and enjoyed the trip - only downfall was that these places were all very crowded with lots of boats. This area is popular with tourists so just be ready for the crowds. Getting the private boat was it worth it for us - we were a party of 5 and the boat I would guess would hold up to 20. Some of the boats were very crowded so doing a private was a good choice. The guide Lita was very nice.

Early Bird Small Group - Phi Phi Islands Sunrise Tour with Seaview Lunch Buffet
I wish i could give this tour more than five stars. The staff was incredible. The views were incredible. Our group only had about 14 people which was wonderful. Lunch was great. The snacks along the way were refreshing and welcome. Don't let the early start scare you - it is SO worth it.

Private Phi Phi Island Speed Boat Tour by Sea Eagle from Krabi
One of the best excursions I have done. Highly recommend booking the private tour for just your group. It’s more personal and the guide tailors the day to your needs.

Full-Day Phi Phi & Rang Islands Snorkeling Trip w/ Seaview Lunch by Speedboat
Our transport picker us up on time and the communication was excellent. The boat left earlier than scheduled and K, Captain and Monkey did an amazing job looking after us for the whole day. Everything was efficient and the weather amazing. Definitely a must when visiting Phuket.

Beautiful islands - Ok Tour

Phi Phi Day Tour with Seaview Lunch
The islands are beautiful - the English speaking guide didn’t give us a lot of information on the places we visited (he didn’t explain anything about maya bay or Viking cave) but he was friendly. The PhiPhi islands view point was not included which was a shame. I’ve done this type of trip before with a different tour operator and I have to say this one was definitely second best.

Short visit of some of the most common touri-hotspots

Full-Day Phi Phi & Rang Islands Snorkeling Trip w/ Seaview Lunch by Speedboat
Fun Trip. Good overview over the hot spots. Good organisation. Easy pick up. Yes, of course depending on were you get picked up, you will do a small car round trip in phuket, but it´s fine enjoy the island. Also would love to stay longer at the visited places. Maya beach sadly still closed.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • If you want to avoid Ko Phi Phi Don’s popular party scene, head to the island’s more secluded eastern coast, where beaches host rustic bungalows and five-star resorts.

  • For an immersive experience, visit the Phi Phi Islands as part of a 3-night sailing cruise, or on a deluxe 6-island tour that also takes in Koh Khai, Koh Yao, Mosquito Island, and Bamboo Island.

  • Marine life is abundant around the Phi Phi Islands. Take an island tour by speedboat charter or cruise boat to spend time swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Island-hopping adventure tours also allow for exploring around some of the area’s smaller islands.

Exploring the Islands

Uninhabited Phi Phi Leh is the smaller of the two main islands and boasts abundant coral reefs. Its Maya Bay featured prominently in the 2000 film,The Beach, and is a popular diving and swimming spot for day-trippers. Phi Phi Don hums with activity—by day, a relaxed coastal paradise and, by night, a beachfront pulsing with music and fire parties. Ao Ton Sai, the island’s principal dock, houses a promenade lined with shops, bars, and restaurants.
