After lunch, 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.

What people are saying about Phi Phi Islands

Overall rating

5.0 / 5

based on 3 reviews

Had a slight issue coordinating with the tour operator for the pick up.. but once onboard, we had the best half day experience. Having your own private long tail boat means you can explore the islands at your convenience.. you can spend longer at sites you really love, and not so much time at others which you find are too crowded which is a really good thing. The tour guide was friendly and tried explaining the different islands and points (though communication was limited since his English wasn't the best), but he made up for it with his enthusiasm and smiling demeanour.

Amazing trip, got to see all of the islands and main attractions around both Phi Phi islands. Plenty of time at each place, lots of opportunities for snorkelling and lunch with a couple of snacks included plus drinks throughout. This is quite a long day so if you’re staying in phi phi a few days it might be worth doing the half day trips across 2 days. But if not this is definitely the trip to do, would 100% recommend

The tour was great, well organised and on time. The captain was also excellent, we managed to see and stop in all the points mentioned despite the weather wasn’t great. The thing I liked the most of the tour was the large amount of time they allowed us to snorkel around, about 2.5 hours! We saw tons of fish, including sharks and fluorescent plankton at night. It was a great day!

If you come to Phi Phi, I 100% recommend the activity. Don't hesitate, it's well worth it. Incredible places that you will not know if you do not do this excursion. I'm not telling anything else so you can surprise yourself.

Amazing value for money, you get taken to so many places and every one is beautiful! would defo recommend to anyone going to phi phi.
