I went on this group with a couple of friends & it was the perfect evening! The staff are so friendly, we were late for the ferry & they really helped us out with catching up & everything. The food was excellent & the activities were great! It is sleeping rough, so don't expect the height of luxury, but its... More

Yes we had an excellent time and would definitely recommend to other travellers. One thing we thought could’ve been added was some information or history in regards to the movie being made on Maya Bay etc. Other than that, a super fun arvo/night spent on The Beach...woop!!

We loved every aspect of this trip. Go with an open mind and realistic expectations (you are sleeping on the floor of the boat) and you will not regret it! Snorkelling with huge shoals of fish all around you, being at the stunning Maya bay without hoards of people, the huge amount of delicious food, swimming with the plancton, jumping... More

Everything about our Maya Bay trip was incredible. The food was lovely, the staff so friendly and the scenery was spectacular. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. It was most definitely the highlight of our holiday. As you sleep out in the open I can't say it was the best nights sleep I ever had but was most... More

We really enjoyed our time with Mong, our guide/master of activities. He is lovely, humorous and efficient! Every person on the crew was extremely nice and made our time really great. The boat is large and while sleeping conditions are not super comfortable (We didn't expect them to be) it's just fine for one night. The sleeping bags functioned more... More

This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Thailand. Lots of fun people, great scenery, and the crew along with Captain Aaron know how to show everyone a good time. Highly, highly recommend the experience.

I had a wonderful time!!! It was amazing. The best was sleeping under the stars on the boat. I really had a fantastic once in a lifetime experience. I would definitely recommend your tour to others. Never again will I get the chance to fall asleep on the water, under the stars, listening to waves, in the most beautiful place... More

We really enjoyed our Maya bay trip, it was awesome! Well organised with relaxed people on the boat. Besides, the food was really good! This is the only way to experience Maya beach the right way. It gives you the magic without all the boats and people around. Relaxed boat, relaxed crew, good food, well organised, good drinks available, nice... More

Itf you are looking for a luxury trip, forget about it.. this one is a fun filled, back to the nature kind of a trip.

Snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise water, lie in the silky white sand, take amazing photos of Maya Bay without... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Each year hundreds of thousands of day-tripping tourists converge on Maya Bay – the small tropical island where the movie The Beach (starring Leonardo DiCaprio) was filmed. Tourists arrive by sailboats, speedboats and longtails – all hell bent on capturing that perfect photo of paradise. It can be a disappointing experience for many, however, there’s now another option – the Maya Bay Sleep Aboard tour.Join other like-minded travellers for an unforgettable overnight experience you will recall with a smile for the rest of your life.The journey begins at Phi Phi Don, where the Maya Bay Sleep Aboard office is located. Store your luggage for free at the office and prepare your overnight bag. Bring your swimwear, towel, mosquito spray, camera and of course your sense of adventure. On the way to Maya Bay, the boat will make a stop outside the Viking Caves, followed soon after by a snorkeling, swimming and kayaking session. .We serve a breakfast back on the boat which consists of coffee, tea, eggs and toast. After breakfast there’s an opportunity to take a quick swim and then it’s time to head back to Phi Phi Don. We arrive back by 10am and while most people are tired the majority just can’t stop smiling and raving about their night.Remember you are in the land of smiles… bring along your Mai Pen Rai (no problem in Thai) attitude and you are sure to have an amazing time. Lasting friendships have been forged, unforgettable memories made, and great times had. ... more   less
