Owner description: Phuket Sail Tours is a family run business with over 13 years experience in Phuket, Krabi and Khao Lak. We offer a range of high quality tours to Phi Phi and Phang Nga Bay. We keep the number of guests on each tour low, we do not over crowd our boats. Activities include snorkeling, canoeing, caving, swimming, beach picnics, relaxing and more. All year round. We have sought the best places and know how to avoid the crowds. Our tours can only be booked directly with us, we do not work through any agents. We hope to see you aboard!

We booked Phuket Sail Tours after reading all of the wonderful reviews here on Trip Advisor. We did the Phi Phi Islands Tour and we had a wonderful time. Captain Mark and his crew were great. The snacks on the boat were very tasty and plentiful and the lunch was great and plenty to go around- even cater to high maintenence vegetarians such as myself :). I wouldn't reccomend booking with anyone else- Phuket Sail tours are the best you can find- do yourself a favour and book with them.

This is the second time we used Captain Mark in 7 months & again, we could not fault them. We were picked up on time, taxi arranged by Mark to pick us up from the Indigo Pearl at Nai Yang Beach. We were charged 3000 baht per person which we found 200-300 baht less than the other tour operators operating out of Nai Yang. A bonus straight away. An extra 1000 baht for the taxi trip was fourfited when we arrived at the Marina as a good will gesture from Shaun. Who said as the tour was booked out they would wear the cost. A small good will will have my buisness again & again.

We went to Phi Phi with Shaun & caught up with Elise at the Marina. She reconized us immediately from 7 months ago, amazing. Shaun & the crew went out of there way all day to keep you away from the crowds of the other tour boat operators. A great day out,great food,drinks & snacks all day nothing was a problem. Ww will always use phuketsailtours when back in Phuket.

Captain Mark was professional but good fun also. You felt the tour was a more personable experience being one of only 10 people on his boat. The cost was reasonable when compared with some of the bigger operators. The cosy little cove and the tour of caves and lagoons without hordes of other holidayers made the whole day so much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Captain Mark and his very friendly crew!

Hi Mark.
Many thanks for a great day out. You, being a fellow aussie made communication easier than other tours we have taken with local guides. I now appreciate your decision to cancel Phi Phi island tour. We spoke to other guests at the Hotel over the next few days who had done tours with other operators (not so honest) and had a horrible time. Rough seas, sea sickness, injuries, brocken down boats with too many people onboard, Etc I have and will continue to highly recommend you and your company to any one visiting Phuket and wanting a day out on the water. Hope to see you again

Went with Phuket Sail Tours to Phi Phi with Captain Mark and his fantastic crew. Right from the beginning it was perfect - transfer was on time, when we arrived we were offered cool drinks and there was morning tea on board including lots of fruit and other thai treats. Lunch was one of the best we had and there was plenty to go round! Staff are very friendly and helpful and cater to all different levels, including those who couldnt swim and/or hadnt snorkelled before.
The scenery I was very disappointed with. Phi Phi was once an amazing sight but years of tourists and lack of environmental awareness has left this place a shell of its former self. There were people EVERYWHERE as well as rubbish. It was really sad. Also, the snorkelling wasnt great but it was still good to see fish and just be in the water, just not the best place to snorkel in the world. Captain Mark and his team are very environmentally aware and do everything in their power to not leave anything behind but footprints! It was nice to see and Phuket could do with a few more operators like these guys..
All in all, a very enjoyable way to spend the day and I would recommend them to everyone who wants to see Phi Phi - just dont expect Phi Phi to be as it once was..
