When visiting Phuket, don't miss the beaches and limestone cliffs of Phi Phi Island. Depart by boat in the morning or at sunrise to avoid the afternoon crowds, and sail away to the tropical paradise made famous as the picturesque filming location of the movie ‘The Beach.’ Swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of Maya Bay and Bamboo Island, encounter the curious primates of Monkey Beach, and savor a buffet lunch during this full-day island escape.
  • Full-day boat tour to Phi Phi Island from Phuket
  • See Maya Bay, the gorgeous lagoon used as a filming location for 'The Beach'
  • Swim and snorkel in crystaline blue waters
  • Get up close and personal with wild primates at Monkey Beach
  • Soak up the sun on serene Bamboo Island
  • Avoid the afternoon crowds with an early bird departure
  • Includes an onboard buffet lunch
One of the most famously beautiful locations in Thailand, Phi Phi Island has become a must-see destination for visitors since its captivating beaches, lagoons and cliffs were featured as a hidden paradise in the 2000 film The Beach. Your full-day island adventure begins with pickup at your Phuket hotel in the morning and an approximately 1.5-hour ride to the island. Departing early allows you to avoid the afternoon crowds for a more relaxed day of exploration.
On the island of Phi Phi Leh, visit the natural swimming pool of Pileh Lagoon during low tide for a refreshing dip. At Loh Samah Bay, crawl through a hole in the limestone rock wall to reach stunning Maya Beach, a lagoon surrounded on three sides by 328-foot (100-meter) cliffs. Swim or snorkel in the warm, clear waters with provided equipment and explore underwater coral formations and marine life. Peer into the entrance of Viking Cave, where you can spy a large colony of native swift birds, and get a close encounter with the wild residents of Monkey Beach.
Midday, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch on board before cruising to Bamboo Island, a flat evergreen escape where you can relax on the silky white sand or swim in the magnificent blue waters. Continue snorkeling then soak up the sun and sights on the return boat trip to Phuket, where the tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the afternoon.

TL,DR: Book the 6-630 pick-up and bring a towel!I booked the 6-630A pick-up since we had a 11PM flight back to HKG the same night. We stayed at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia and had a pick-up time of 06:10. We were picked-up by a VIP shuttle with disco lights. Driver was not so friendly since we were 5 minutes late but that's another story that you can find on Hilton Arcadia's TripAdvisor review. It was a comfortable 45-minute to 1-hour ride with air-con and soft leather seats. Upon arrival there were items for a light breakfast as advertised; tea, coffee, bananas, variety pound cake, water and motion sickness pills! We spent 15-minutes there signing out our fins, for the snorkeling portion, and paying the national park fee (400 Bht). Restrooms are also onsite. Our speedboat had 17pax, a lot less than other boats we saw (with atleast 25!) along the way, which made it a comfortable ride. Mr. Boy and his crew were fabulous and fun to spend the day with. We had water, Coke, orange Fanta, tangerines and bananas free-flowing onboard. We had plenty of time to snorkel near Maya bay before heading to one of the islands for lunch. I was very surprised by the lunch since I was expecting a chicken skewer from reading other reviews. We had a FULL open buffet consisting of tomato/cucumber/cabbage salad, fried rice, plain rice, fried chicken wings, Tom Kha Gai soup w/chicken, mixed veggies, water, instant coffee and tea among the items I could remember. Soft drinks and beer were not included but we had soft drinks on the boat that we could take and beer was available for purchase (100bht/ea.). After finishing up lunch we went to another island and spent 1.5 hours at the beach. After boarding to head back to the marina the boat crew cut up some pineapples and watermelon for snacks. We didn't think to bring our own towels but we dried off with the hour ride back to the marina. We arrived back at the Marina at 14:45, departed at 15:15 for our hotel and arrived by 16:30 - there was a good amount of traffic for a Monday afternoon. GREAT trip overall and I definitely recommend the Early riser. Other boats we saw were jam packed and standing room. Our boat had enough room for people to lay out and even nap during the long rides there.

This was a dream come true. What an amazing tour and my tour guide, Mr. Boy made it even better. He was so funny and knowledgeable about all the island I loved every minute of it. The tour is so very well planned and the beaches were beautiful. Lunch was also fantastic. This is a must in Phuket!

Very well run outfit, expensive compared to others in the city, but you get what you pay for.
Pick up on time. Trip was as promised, everything on time, some breakfast items available prior to boat ride. Lots of water, fruit, soft drinks on board. Good quality gear with no extra charge for rentals. Buffet lunch was great.

We had the best time on this tour. The islands were breathtaking. Mr. Boy our guide was so funny and engaging. He kept everyone entertained and kept our bellies full. Snacks and drinks were provided all day. The lunch buffet was delicious. Make sure you bring sunglasses and keep long hair pulled up securely or the speedboat will not be as enjoyable. Overall, highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Tuk, was amazing! He was funny yet insightful and made the whole trip so much fun! I enjoyed every aspect of this trip. Only thing is I wish I'd gotten on the boat earlier so I could've sat in the front with the sunshine! It was really nice that they had drinks and snacks on board for us and the boat driver was able to fit the boat into nonexistent spaces on the islands. I especially enjoyed snorkeling and seeing the monkeys! Thanks for a great trip!

A great Tour and the views are stunning! Was disappointed though when our early morning speed boat tour got cancelled and we were shifted into a bigger and full booked tour boat last minute. This happened cause other people changed their mind last minute we when arrived at the Marina. We thought it would have been fair to continue on as planned, and not put the rest of us who paid for a smaller more spacious trip into a full packed one. However, the water and the islands you get to see are gorgeous, and is one of the biggest highlights of our trip!
