From Phi Phi: Full-Day Sunset Long Tail Boat Tour

1. From Phi Phi: Full-Day Sunset Long Tail Boat Tour

Set off around the Phi Phi archipelago on a longtail boat tour for 13 people. Discover the area's marvelous islands, beaches, lagoons, and bays, and round the day off in style with spectacular sunset views. Meet the local partner's staff in front of McDonald's in Tonsai Bay at 9:30 AM and make your way to the pier for a 10:10 AM departure. Set sail toward Monkey Beach, Shark Point, and Runtee Bay first, and enjoy time to snorkel in the sea. Next, head to Bamboo Island, a wonderful circular island filled with wild bamboo. Relax with some free time on the powdery white beach with soft sand and crystal clear water before savoring a picnic lunch right on this paradise beach. After lunch, visit Mosquito Island, the north-easternmost point in the Phi Phi Archipelago. Like Bamboo Island, Mosquito Island is completely uninhabited and has two beaches that are rarely visited by tourists. Enjoy time away from the crowds, and snorkel in the stunning waters of the southeastern tip of the island, home to an impressive abundance of marine life. Next, sail to discover the mysteries of the Viking Cave, famous for the seemingly prehistoric painting of a Viking boat on its wall. The cave was once used for the extraction of birds' nests, prized ingredients in Chinese culture for making medicinal soups believed to help with longevity. From the Viking Cave, prepare to marvel at Pi Leh Lagoon, a beautiful turquoise lagoon enclosed by towering, jagged limestone cliffs. At some spots, it even seems like the water is lit from the bottom of the sea, a spectacular sight to see. Relax and escape in the most spectacular site in the Phi Phi archipelago, and float in the crystal clear and still water of this gem of the Andaman Sea. Your next stop is Loh Samah Bay, famous for shallow still waters and a large coral reef filled with colorful fish. Snorkel here for a while, then hop back on to your longtail boat to sail toward Maya Bay. Admire the spectacular sunset views at this wonderful paradise made famous by the Leonardo Di Caprio movie, “The Beach.” At about 6:30 PM, transfer back to the pier from where you can walk to your hotel.

Meet your guide in the morning and head straight to Shark Point for some memorable snorkelling. You’ll have time to marvel at the timid Blacktip reef sharks the spot got its name from.

Explore the island’s secluded white sand beach and tropical bamboo trees, and wade or swim in cool shallow waters. Re-energized, marvel at Nui Bay’s picturesque alcove before heading to Monkey Beach, where limestone cliffs and emerald waters await you. Enjoy meeting the island’s macaques as they wander freely on the sand and in the trees. Move across to Viking Bay, a Pirates of the Caribbean-esque cave with historic paintings of Scandinavian ships on its walls. Then, return to your boat for more tropical island hopping and make your way to Pileh Lagoon for more swimming in turquoise waters. Cool off some more, and swim and snorkel at Loh Samah Bay before making your way to the iconic Maya Bay, where the movie The Beach was filmed. End your sun-kissed day by watching the sunset from a hidden spot, swimming among bioluminescent plankton — a truly magical end to a magical day.

Well, it was my first time ordering online that tour, or any tour in thailand, after 25 visits in the islands....and was worth it. We got a vip treatment. Even better food then the rest of the group. The price maybe was a bit more then in the street, but we didnt need to run around and find the best deal or try explaining the locals what we want in english that they not always understand. So for next time i will use "get your guid" again.

Wow, what a beautiful area we got to see and explore. The tour was a little long for us we kinda wished it started at 11 or 12. Got on at 10am and didn’t finish the glowing plankton until 7:30 or so. But we saw so much amazing stuff in one day. Would definitely recommend.

Phi phi Island tour is a beautiful day tour. Highly recommended. Full day tour is needed to cover most places with maximum time. We went in a long-tailed boat. Satisfied with the arrangement. Wonderful snorkeling experience.Food was okayish.

Very fun tour. You will get splashed, and the provided food isn't much, but it is well worth the money.

This was an amazing experience. I would so that again. Loved it
