“Average day trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We went to Phi Phi Lei from Phuket with a ferry. The ferry trip was rather longer - about 2 hours. When we got close to the island we had to switch to some very unsafe looking long tail boats. The island has very little on it - a few chalets and what seemed like one restaurant. Luckily they did have a shower though. Other than swimming and snorkeling (if that's your thing) there was nothing much else to do. I far preferred Phuket!

“phi phi islands visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

we have booked our tour from agency and paid for power boat.
Phi Phi island tours seems very touristic trap and it doesn't worth to spend a few hours time at the beaches after too long and noisy journey . the beaches fully occupied by many powerboats and . no more space for swimming . you have very limited time in the islands .. My proposal is rent a small private boat and visit a quite bays if you don't like over crowded places

“Must do day trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went by speedboat, was a terrific experience!! The guide explained facts and whereabouts of each location in pretty good english. Was very friendly supplying drinks and fruit at every stop.
We booked from home in Australia, so probably could of gotten cheaper, but regardless of price was worth it. Each stop was different, you could snorkel with free gear from boat, beach lounge with free mat, some places had bars and swim sections.
We snorkeled at three spots, saw monkeys at one, swam at another and lunch was at an entirely different island which was good and filling and time for a swim and kayak.
Snorkeling was amazing, one place we jumped off the back of the boat into crystal waters, so deep and filled with hundreds of creatures and fish.
Definitely a must
