Icon About The Tour

For those seeking an Authentic Thailand Experience, we don’t think there is a better tour than ours.

We will pick you up from your hotel in Krabi or Ao-Nang and drive you to Krabi Pier. From there, we will take a speedboat to the Phi Phi Islands, which is the fastest and most convenient way to get there. The speedboat ride will take about one hour (approximately) to reach the islands. Return transfers are also included on the same day.

Once you’re at Phi Phi Island, there is plenty of time to explore the beaches, bays, and lagoons, we provide a private longtail boat to get around. You’ll be accompanied by our knowledgeable and passionate Five Star Thailand Tour Guide and Captain. Each tour with us is unique, as we take into account the weather, tides, and your preferences when planning the day’s route. We can’t wait to show you the beauty of the Phi Phi Islands!

The duration of this tour is not fixed because transfer schedules between Krabi and Phi Phi change frequently and depend on the season. But we promise you’ll get as much time as possible in Phi Phi. We’ll bring you to the island with the first boat, and return to the mainland with the last boat.

Icon Tour Locations

On this tour we will visit the best beaches, bays, lagoons, and snorkel spots. There are two main islands which make up Koh Phi Phi. These islands are; Koh Phi Phi Leh, and Koh Phi Phi Don.

There are over 50 different spots around these two islands. And it is within these islands where all of the most popular spots are located, examples of some well know places on these islands include Monkey Beach, Pileh Lagoon, Viking Cave, Loh Samah Bay, Long Beach, Maya Bay, and Everywhere Else. There are plenty of other lesser-known spots on these islands too!

Each tour with Five Star Thailand is unique. We don’t provide an exact itinerary due to the dynamic nature of the Phi Phi Islands! We plan a custom route, on the morning of each tour, taking into consideration the arrival and departure times for the transfers from Krabi, the anticipated crowds, the tide times, the weather conditions, and of course; any requests you might have. Our goal is to seeing as much as possible, without rushing. We use our years of local knowledge to plan the best tour for you. Because the Phi Phi Islands are dynamic and ever changing, so is our tour! And because our tours are private, guests have the flexibility to alter tour routes, or to spend more time in locations that you love, we’re not fixed to a schedule like a shared tour.

Phi Phi Don – Tonsai Town: Did you know that there is an entire town on Koh Phi Phi Don!? There are shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and so much more. On this tour we’ll try to include some time for you to check out the local town and see what Phi Phi is really all about.

Bamboo Island: We don’t visit Bamboo Island on this tour, because it’s too far away. But other than that, there are not many limitations to the places we can visit (within Phi Phi). It is not not possible to add Bamboo as a paid stop on this tour. However our Private Speedboat Tour from Krabi does include Bamboo.

Private hotel collection, and shared speedboat transfers to Phi Phi Island are included in the price with this tour.

The Phi Phi Islands are around 30 km from Krabi. For your safety and comfort, we cannot use our longtail boat to pick you up in Krabi! Instead this package includes transfers to, and from Phi Phi Island with a fast speedboat transfer. When you arrived at Phi Phi Island, you would change to our Private Thai Longtail Boat. Land transfers are also included, and our team will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to the pier with a private car.

Speedboat transfers are operated by our trusted 3rd-party partners, not operated by Five Star Thailand. We work with multiple partners to ensure you get the longest time possible in Phi Phi. This is not an overnight tour. We leave from Krabi in the morning and return later on the same day.

The speedboat transfer is shared with others, and has a fixed schedule. In case you need private transfer or more flexibility you can consider our Private Speedboat Tour from Krabi.

Icon Tour Duration

This is a full day tour, we start first thing in the morning, and transfer you to Phi Phi Island on the first available boat. To provide an estimate, this is usually around 7-8am. The exact time is confirmed after booking.

The approximate tour times are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm–including transfer time from your hotel to the pier, speedboat transfers to and from Phi Phi Islands, and around an hour to explore the town on Phi Phi Island. The rest of the time will be spent on a private longtail boat snorkelling and visiting the best spots around Koh Phi Phi. We usually leave the Phi Phi Islands to return to Krabi between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm, depending on the boat schedules.

These times are approximate, and are not intended to be an exact itinerary. The Phi Phi Islands are dynamic and exact times depend on a number of factors, our team will confirm exact times with guests.

Icon Tour Activities

There is so much to do and see in the Phi Phi Islands. We will go snorkelling in some of Thailand’s most beautiful locations. There are plenty of beaches, lagoons, and reefs to visit, explore and snorkel. You’ll also have the opportunity to see various wildlife, such as Reef Sharks, Turtles, Monkeys, and more. For lunch we’ll stop by the ocean to enjoy a delicious Thai meal.

Snorkelling: The Phi Phi Islands have diverse marine life; have the opportunity to see Parrot Fish, Clown Fish and other tropical species. It is also common to see Black Tip Reef Sharks, and it’s possible to see Hawksbill Turtles. Snorkelling is included with this tour, and we provide masks and snorkels. The amount of snorkelling locations we visit is down to your personal preference.

Monkeys: Some people love the Monkeys, some people hate them. We usually include a stop at Monkey Beach to try and spot them, and more often than not we’ll be able to see them, usually on the beaches stealing lunch boxes from other tourists! But as it’s a private tour, you’re also able to skip the Monkey Beach if it’s not your thing.

Maya Bay: Maya Bay is a popular location to visit and we include it on this tour (unless you want to skip it). Maya Bay is managed by the Parks Department and in situations when they limit beach access, we can always see the beach from the boat.

Important: We can’t guarantee you will see any wildlife. We don’t have control over nature and we can’t promise you’ll see any sharks, turtles, monkeys or other animals. Maya Bay Beach Access can be restricted at any time by the Parks Department–these things are not within our control.

You don’t need to bring much on the tour. We recommend bringing as little as possible. Although a few things are essential, sun protection is a must. All our boats have shade from the sun, but sunscreen, a sunhat and sunglasses are essential. We also encourage guests to bring sea shoes and a dry bag. These items are not essential but can improve the tour. Dry bags and sea shoes can be found for sale in souvenir shops around Ao Nang Beach.

The DNP can and do close parts of the park including May Bay. This is not within our control, and closure orders are often given without warning. If Maya Bay is inaccessible due to a closure, the beach can be seen from the mouth of the bay.
