We go to Phi Phi Ley Island to Monkey feed, Cliff Jump, Viking and Trong Loo caves, Pileh Lagoon kayaking, Loh Samah Bay snorkeling, lay on Maya Beach for one hour and then watch the sunset under sail. There are 4 opportunities to snorkel. You can be as active or as chilled as you want.
All inclusive trip with full snorkel sets, 3 kayaks, fishing gear, water shoes, monkey and fish food, and optional scuba gear.
Note : Public mass transit ferries do not run after our return at 7pm. So staying the night on Phi Phi on the evening of the cruise should be considered. If departure from Phi Phi Don, Ton Sai Bay is desired after our 7pm arrival, private speed boats and longtails are available for max eight people to Krabi or Phuket for about 11000 baht.
Departs daily from Ton Sai bay 100 meters west of the pier at the Cabana Hotel dock (barge)at 13:00 and returns at 19:00. The cruise destinations include :
Located in Ton Sai Bay, Monkey Beach is a popular destination for tourists daring enough to feed wild monkeys. Being just a short swim from where Captain Bob can anchor, it is a must that you bring your water proof camera or borrow one of Captain Bob’s Dry Poaches. If you forgot your camera, or don’t want to risk getting your non water proof camera wet, an underwater digital camera is available for rent (500 baht) on the boat.
Viking Cave contains 800 year old cave drawings found on the cave walls that resemble ancient Chinese sailing ships. A very significant cultural artifact that not only enthralls many tourists but it also happens to be home to a thriving bird nest soup industry. For this reason no one is allowed in the cave. However, Captain Bob will get you close enough to take some great pictures while he eloquently briefs you on the history of Viking Cave.
Loh Samah Bay is a very popular snorkeling spot where sharks and turtles are often spotted. It is surrounded by gigantic limestone walls with one of the prettiest beaches in all of Thailand. A small archway through the rock face makes it possible, after a 5 minute jungle stroll, to arrive at the more popular Maya Beach.
Popularized by the Alex Garland book The Beach, and later the movie “The Beach”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Maya Bay has become the most popular attraction in all of Koh Phi Phi. Once there you will find it hard to leave this stunningly beautiful bay that’s sheltered by soaring cliffs and three beautiful beaches.
Other destinations include Pi-Leh Bay Lagoon for kayaking and Wang Long Bay for “The Kissing Rock Faces” at sunset. Throughout the trip there are plenty of opportunities for some basic to intense cliff diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and fishing.
Due to the the sharp rocks that you will have to climb in order to participate in the cliff jumping you can bring either water shoes, or shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Plenty of vendors on Koh Phi Phi sell Crocs which are excellent for all your water sports during your vacation but Captain Bob has some you can borrow in any event.
