TOUR

BOAT TOURS

When vacationers in Phuket ask us why they should take the Phi Phi islands tour, it is difficult to run-out of reasons. Koh Phi Phi is perceived to be one of the best collections of islands in Thailand – and remarkably scenic islands in the first place – made up of six different islands with six different personalities. Even the Phi Phi islands day tour offers more than enough thrilling locations to visit!

Phi Phi islands day tour
From snorkeling pristine Pileh lagoon, diving Loh Samah, playing on Monkey beach, admiring the Maya bay, tanning at Nui beach, hiding on Bamboo island, bird-nesting at Viking cave, to hiking stunning panorama on Phi Phi Don – you will never run out of options. Just think about it, how amazing it would be to join the Phi Phi islands tour by speedboat to experience all these activities during 6-8 hours! So what is the most popular itinerary for the Phi Phi islands tour would be for travelers who are staying in either Phuket or Krabi?

Phi Phi Island tour from Phuket
A typical Phi Phi island tour from Phuket includes the bonus stop at the Khai islands first, as it is on the way to the archipelago. Some may opt to start with the Bamboo island instead. The sights that are always included, though, are Pileh lagoon, Maya bay (from the boat), Viking cave, Loh Samah, and Monkey beach. With some tours also stopping by at the main Koh Phi Phi Don island, you have a lot of sightseeing and cultural experiences to take in. Although Phuket will offer you some great diving and snorkeling, it won’t be able to compare to the experience you get on during Phi Phi tours from Phuket. Thus, it is a great thing that the islands are in such proximity to one another. The Phi Phi island tour from Phuket might take an extra 10-20 minutes, but they are just as impressive too.

Phi Phi Island tour from Krabi
Taking the Phi Phi island tour from Krabi takes about 40 minutes, and that is time you will enjoy as well. Here you are most likely to start with a visit to Bamboo island, followed by snorkeling at Hin Wong (absolute WOW). You will also discover the mini version of Maya bay at Nui beach and soak in all the beauty of Koh Phi Phi Don from a different angle. Not to worry, the Viking cave, Monkey beach, and Pileh lagoon are all included in the Phi Phi Island tour from Krabi as well. For those who just want to see the Phi Phi islands at their own pace, Phi Phi tours from Krabi often offer precisely that. You can just hop off at Phi Phi Don and look around before jetting to the next ones when you decide to take a specific Phi Phi island tour by speedboat instead.

Phi Phi islands overnight
Chartering a fully crewed yacht in Phuket to explore Phi Phi islands is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences. With a skipper that knows the area so well, you can explore paradise at your own pace. So why not charter a catamaran or a luxury motor yacht to take you around Phi Phi islands from Phuket on the overnight trip to spice up the experience? With Islander, your options for the Phi Phi islands tour are absolutely limitless.
