PHI PHI SUNRISE
The Phi Phi Islands are an island group in Thailand, between the large island of Phuket and the west Strait of Malacca coast of the mainland.
The islands are administratively part of Krabi province. Ko Phi Phi Don is the largest island of the group, and is the most populated island of the group, although the beaches of the second largest island, Ko Phi Phi Lee, are visited by many people as well.
The rest of the islands in the group, including Bida Nok, Bida Noi, and Bamboo Island (Ko Mai Phai), are not much more than large limestone rocks jutting out of the sea. The Islands are reachable by speedboats or Long-tail boats most often from Krabi Town or from various piers in Phuket Province.
pick-up start at 05:00 am
Normally ( tide dependent ) our first stop, Maya Bay was made famous by the film “The Beach” staring Leonardo DiCaprio in 2000. This is a “must see” for most tourists so it gets very busy, however we usually arrive before everyone else so you can enjoy the bay to yourselves for a while and take a few photographs without the crowds.
Maya Bay is temporary closed until September 2018. We will bring you there for sightseeing and for taking amazing photos of the empty bay and then we will stop in another amazing beach in the same island (Phi Phi Leh) tide permitting.
Our next port of call is Phileh Lagoon. It is a spectacular emerald green lagoon surrounded by high limestone cliffs, one of the world most gorgeous natural swimming pool. This location has become famous for our traditional jump off the front of the boat. If you are less adventurous, you can simply use the steps at the side of the boat and enjoy these beautiful waters.
We have a few locations to choose from, Viking Cove, Loh Somah Bay, Dragon Lagoon, Straight Rock or Par Dang. Which location we choose will depend on the sea conditions, tide and other tour groups on the day. We supply all your snorkeling equipment including flippers (fins) and floatation aids such as life jackets or swim noodles. The staff are always there (in and out of the water) ready to help any first timer with encouragement, advice and sometimes just a helping hand..
Time to catch up with the locals on Monkey Beach. Everyone loves the monkey but we are a little bit more cautious. They can and do bite so we ask everyone to be aware and listen to the tour guides instructions. Respect that they are wild animals. If we all behave in safe, appropriate manner, then we never have a problem! Please remember no feeding the Monkeys as you will be fined if cought by the authorities.
LUNCH IN BAMBOO ISLAND
For your lunch break we are going to bring you to the most beautiful island of the Phi Phi Islands Group “Bamboo Island”. Buffet lunch direct on the white powdery beach of the island.
After lunch it’s time to say hello to the fishes again with another snorkeling stop. Options include Nui Bay (Camel Rock), Mosquito Island, Hin Klan or in front of Bamboo Island. All these places have coral reefs with an abundance of sea life.
