There really is no better option to explore all the islands around Phuket. We did the Phi Phi tour and everything was fantastic. The booking experience is incredibly flexible with Shaun keeping us up to date on conditions and the best time to go out to sea. The team provide transfers to and from where you are staying to the Marina and getting all info prior to going out when you arrive from the friendly team is a breeze.

Being a private tour you have total control over your itinerary but we were more than happy to be shuttled to the best spots by our guides. On the face of it you will likely pay more for a small group than you would with another group provider but the two experiences just won't compare. If you are larger group it really wouldn't make sense to choose anyone other than 5 Star.

Take a look into how they have helped support the local population throughout the pandemic and it will cement what a fantastic bunch of people they really are. Keep doing what you're doing and we will be back with you when we are back in Phuket!

I was recommended 5 star marine by the hotel I was staying at and they didn’t disappoint. I went on the Phi Phi island tour which also included a stop to survey Maya Bay and Khai Island as well. We were greeted at the home office in Phuket by Jun Jun who was to be our guide for the day, and were offered refreshments whilst waiting for the other groups to arrive. The speed boat was in pristine condition complete with a bathroom. Throughout the day there was access to an esky full with water and soft drink included within the cost of the tour. We were offered many opportunities to snorkel and enjoy 2 different beaches. Jun Jun was very knowledgeable and happy to act as photographer for the group of people which was greatly appreciated. The lunch served at the resort island we visited was fresh and options were available for those with allergies. We were fortunate to have perfect weather conditions for the day as well which made the day that much better! I couldn’t recommend this company enough for a day out and if I had more time in Phuket I would go on another tour with them. Will definitely do this when I return to Thailand next time. Thank you 5 Star Marine 🙂

Prior to our trip the owner gave us all the information we needed. We were picked up at our hotel in Koh Yao Noi with our luggage for a transfer to our hotel in Krabi. On our way we visited the Hong islands, Lao Ladding ,Koh Gai and national parks in Krabi area with lovely beaches and swimming water. Our guide Pee was wonderful and knew the region very well, being from the Phi Phi islands .The trip was custom made. Drinks and fresh fruit were provided and for lunch we stopped at a beach restaurant on a Krabi beach where we ate a BBQ fish, very affordable and delicious. A wonderful visit to an amazing region. I highly recommend this company.

Beyond amazing!
We chose 5 Star Marine out of all the other companies, best decision ever!
Private boat with a toilet on board.
We chose to do Captain choice, where the captain picks on the day where the best place to visit will be dependant on the weather.
The price point is great for what they provide.
(We chose to do the trip earlier in the morning to beat the rush of the other tourists boats which were jammed with people) our trip was from 6:30am till about 4 to 5pm a whole day and it cost about $200 Aud each for a group of 4.
The crew members were extremely nice and very knowledgeable.
They took us to an island where we bought a delicious lunch.
Took us to amazing snorkelling spot where we saw many amazing fish.
Because we did this trip as part of my 25th birthday the crew members organised a little surprise birthday cake.
Which was very lovely of them.
Their company name really suits their 5 star service
Definitely book 5 Star Marine for your next boat tour.

I am rebooking them when I go back in 3 months.

I have no hesitation in recommending 5 Star Marine - 5 star service from initial inquiry to booking, custom itinerary, our magical day on the water in Phang Nga Bay, picnic lunch on the beach, and all activities. THANK YOU to the team for your professionalism, attention to detail, and hospitality. We loved the sunrise departure and opportunity to visit the more popular spots without the crowds.The crew was fabulous and guide ALEX is an absolute gem - his detailed local knowledge of the bay and its tides, conditions, geology and wildlife made our celebration of my husband's milestone birthday truly amazing. Thank you again - Karen & Peter

5 Star Marine was recommended to me by a friend and I could not be happier with the experience. From the moment I first contacted them, they replied quickly as well as efficiently, always showing flexibility and preparing a custom-made trip for my friend and myself, as some of us had already done the more common trips.

We had a Rockstar team on the boat who were flexible with all our wishes and did everything to ensure we had a great time. They were friendly, attentive and provided excellent recommendations at all times.

I can highly recommend the 5 Star Marine team; it is obvious from the moment you reach their offices what a professional company they are. I will definitely use them again!

I have been visiting Thailand for almost 20 years and now live here so I’ve been on boat trips both private and full of tourists. On the last two weekends I went on two separate boat trips to Kho Khai and Kho Phi Phi with 5 Star Marine. And both were absolutely awesome. From the super helpful and skilled staff to onboard experience and making your trip memorable...these guys are tops. The price I paid included, snorkel equipment, fruit, soft drinks and limited alcohol and National park fees. They know exactly where to take you for incredible snorkelling experiences. Their boats are not crowded with tourists jammed in like sardines which I think is important. They also take photos throughout your trip and give you access to them digitally without any additional cost - BONUS! Before you book with anyone else, check here first. And next weekend, I’m off with them to different islands - that’s how enjoyable the experience is!

If you’re in Thailand during these tough times, come down to Phuket and explore the underwater world with this company. If you’re outside of Thailand, make sure this is on your bucket list when you are able to visit again!

We had the best time with 5 Star Marine. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. I had a crew of 15 and everyone said it was their best boating experience ever. We order the Thai set for lunch and it was super tasty and was worth the small extra costs. Overall, we highly recommended them and I can’t wait to book again.

My husband and I used 2 services with 5 Star Marine during our trip in November : 1. Private Speedboat Transfer between Phuket and Yaonoi Island 2. Private Boat Trip to Hong Island.

We were so impressed with exceptional services prior and during the trip. The owner, Shaun, is very well organized . He will make sure that all services requested are fulfilled and will keep updating weather status and tell us whether or not the trip can be made.

All of his speedboats are very well maintained in mint quality. His crews are very polite polite, well trained with service minded. None of commercial push throughout the trip.

We really had a great time and very happy that we made the right choice! Will definitely use 5 Star Marine for our next trip to Phuket.

Our private boat tour with 5 Star Marine was lights out from start to finish. We were promptly picked up at our hotel and driven to the marina where we met Jimmy and his crew. After some coffee and pastries (and my kids lining their pockets with sweets) we boarded our boat and started our adventure. Jimmy and his crew made sure we were safe, comfortable and enjoying our day every step of the way. They recommended wonderful beaches, lagoons, snorkeling locations, and even a great lunch spot. After lunch at Hippies we had time to wander around the little shops, grab some ice cream and coffee, swim for a little, before boarding and continuing our tour. I highly recommend this company and a private tour for a perfect, relaxed day seeing all the beautiful sights Phi Phi Island and the surrounding area has to offer.
