Phi Phi Islands Full-Day Speedboat Trip from Krabi
- Pickup available
- Duration: 7.5 hours
Tour guide was brilliant. Boat crew were nice. Timely transfer and departures in a comfortable truck. The only problem I have is the huge national park fee 40baht for Thai's and 400b for foreigners. This is criminal and should be illegal in Thailand. Its not the tour operators fault its the government. Any way I opted to stay on the boat and gave my national park fee as a tip to the Thai staff that helped me. Thailand really needs to address this dual pricing issue especially if a non-Thai person lives here like I do. Thank you so much for a memorable day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The luck box was also very satisfying and fruit aswell as cake too.
It was just 4 of us on a private longtail, we enjoyed the tour. lots of snorkeling and quick stops. Monkey beach, Maya bay, etc. However if someone is not into snorkeling and swimming so much it can be a long day. The sunset was nice out on the water and the Bioluminescent Plankton thing was really a dud, nothing like the description and pictures. I did jump in and stir them up to see them a bit but overall a waste of time IMO. The cost for the day was good and a decent sightseeing tour! if you choose this tour keep in mind that it is not a high end excursion but a fun day on a tiny boat!
It was pretty easy to get places or though doesn’t say that you have to pay an entry fee upon arrival which would have been more ideal. Also, make sure you have cash with you as it charges an extra person with card; though this was kind of expected with the card fees here. Otherwise was super fun and accessing pictures is really easy so you don’t have to worry too much about taking some yourself. :).
i booked this through agoda and the booking experience is very easy. The driver who picked me up is very nice. I arrived at the hotel earlier than the normal check in time and the property does not have 24/7 reception. even though it is beyond his duty, he waited for me to check in at the hotel successfully and made sure i have a place to stay. thank you!
Such a fun filled day with beautiful views, beaches, rocks, islands, everything! There were a few more people in the tour as I would have hoped, but I still had an amazing time! Snorkeling to see the sharks in the beginning and at night to see the plankton was very cool!
