I'ts horrible company, they only want to have money, really bad experience!
We booked all day boat trip with U-RIP company, we are going to visit bamboo island, mosquito island, maya bay and a lot of beaches.
Firstly, we didn't stop in bamboo island, because the captain said that there were a lot of waves. But in this island there were many speed boats.
Secondly, we only ate for all day one small portion of rice with garlic. Horrible! This for all day! until seven o'clock! We were hungry!
All beaches we only stopped far away of the sand, if we would like to go to the beach, we had to do snorkel.
FInally, we arrived to maya bay, but we had to pay 100 baths for person. We paid but the captain didn't enter inside the beach, he stopped in a bay with a lot of waves. He told that his boat was very big and he couldn't enter to maya bay.
We couldn't understand this reason. But other guests jumped to the boat, swam and arrived at the dangerous rocks. There was a dangerous rope stairs, also this was broken!
It was seven o'clock in the afternoon, there were a lot of waves! I couldn't swim, because the waves pushed me against the rocks. The captain didn't say nothing, only that in one hour he will go to maya bay.
All the customers were exhausted! When we arrived to maya bay and saw the sea was plain and there were a lot of boats, uffff! why the captain didn't go to the beach?
He was swindler!! He only want 100 baths for person, and if he enter to the beach, he have to pay this 100 baths.
Don't go with this company, please contract speed boat

Visited in August. 2012. Well run. Excellent value, Knowledge of area excellent. Tries to time trip to suit current tides and conditions to increase sighting of local sealift. Small sharks. Anemones and some coral. Would recommend. Trip includes snorkelling. Great value

find this trip on mama beach-koh phi phi, by the rockclimbing wall. it's a new trip, not well known yet, but the only one glass bottom boat around.we went and try and it was excellent! the kids- and it was free for them! - loved it and us too, were mesmerized by the windows to the under water world. we saw many corals and fish and watched them without disturbing there life. they took us to shark point - we were lucky to see one, sleeping leopard shark ! - and stopped for snorkelling.we had loads of fun swimming under the boat window and taking funny pictures.
on the way back we find many nemo.we were amazed how lively is ton sai bay, even thought it's busy with boats.
thanks for the captain, we learned a few new things about the ocean life, and phi phi marine park.
we'd recommend this trip to all - interesting way to watch sea life,but specially for kids or elderly people,non-swimmers is a blessing.
