I took a boat trip from Phi Phi don with speedboat, a bit pricey but less people and more freedom to explore. Awesome to snorkel and for watching sunset on the beaches

The Ko Phi Phi Le is a must visit when in Phuket or Krabi. This is the smaller of the 2 main islands off the coast in Krabi province. This is an excellent option for snorkeling. We managed to see many beautiful fishes here. Can...More

Be sure to take a tour ride to this uninhabited island just south of Ko Phi Phi Don. We snorkel so had the best of both worlds. There is beauty around every turn and incredible fish viewing if you snorkel. We were lucky to see...More

Absolutely stunning island and nature, even though the "Beach" was closed because of chinese tourists as per our guide, we felt it was good that nature was being protected, we did snorkeling and beach hopping, magical island and go there early, much less traffic.

Hire a private boat for 1,500 TB for half a day and visit a beautiful island with a range of bays to snorkel. Recommended.

Phi phi le is so beautiful. If you have a chance to get there earlier in the morning, before a lot of people arrive, it seems like you are entering in a sacred place. Magical

This area of Thailand became highlight of our entire trip. The nature is astonishingly beautiful in this area. If you love snorkeling and boat travel, it's definitely island you need to visit.

For the preservation of the eco-life and eco-system restoration, Phi Phi Island has now been closed from tourists or locals. Whilst I’m sad I missed the closure by a month, I’m also really happy because well, nature before tourism. We did use a travel boat...More

As fas as I know it is possible. From Phi Phi Don you can rent a longtail for 1,000 baht (US$ 32) for three hours or for 2,000 baht (US$ 64) for a full day, max four people. Speedboats are 3,500 baht (US$ 110) for half day... More

Shared Speedboat to Ko Phi Phi Le (8 Replies)
My girlfriend and I are hoping to see Maya Bay early in the morning, before it becomes slammed with tourists, and it seems the best way to do that is by private speedboat charter. I’m expecting the cost to be around 12,000 BHT total for the day. We are open to going any time in the next 3 days. Is anyone interested in splitting cost by sharing a boat? If so, PM me. Cheers, Chris Cerami

I would expect the cost to be at least double that and more like triple, where did you get 12,000 from?

Koh Phi Phi Ley is inhabitable without water resources. Maya bay has a sand strip, but no fresh water resources. The rest of the island is rocky with shear cliffs.

So 6 days in Bangkok with a overnight side trip to Pattaya. That's ok. BTW, it takes about 2 hours to get to Pattaya via taxi or bus from Bangkok. 3 days Phuket. Which beach? Or just stay on Patong beach which has the majority of nightlife, restaurants, hotels. Fly to Phuket from Bangkok. Going from Phuket to Phi phi is ok but alot of moving around. You could do a daytrip to Phi Phi via ferry, jet boat whatever. Krabi a little furthur and you may be able to get a boat to there from...More
