You will be picked up from your Phuket hotel and transferred by air con minibus to the pier at Koh Sirey. Pick up times will be between 07.45-08.30 am depending on your hotel location. You will be back at your hotel at around 6.30 pm.
Morning: Koh Kai Nui and Koh Yao.
It takes just 15 minutes by speedboat to get to Khai Nui Island where you will have 45 minutes for snorkeling. It’s then a further 10 minutes to Koh Yao Island where you will stay for the rest of the morning.
Here you can swim, kayak or enjoy some beach sports like volleyball.
A delicious lunch is also served on the beach here. The beach is private, no other companies bring their boats here.
Afternoon: Bamboo Island, Koh Phi Phi Ley (Maya Bay**, Pi Ley Cove, Loh Samah Bay, Viking Cave), Koh Phi Phi Don (Tonsai Bay, Monkey Beach).
It takes 30 minutes from Koh Yao to Bamboo Island. Before landing at Bamboo Island the speedboat stops at a reef close to Mosquito Island for a snorkeling session of about 30 minutes. Then it’s just a few minutes ride to Bamboo Island where you have one hour to relax on the white sand beach or swim/snorkel.
At about 2.30 pm the boat will leave Bamboo island for a one hour sightseeing tour around Phi Phi Don (the main Phi Phi island) and it’s surrounding islands. This includes a stop at Monkey beach to see the monkeys. Note that the boat does not land at Monkey beach, it just gets close enough to take photos.
3.30-5.00 pm is spent around Phi Phi Ley Island where you will see Piley Cove, Loh Samah bay, Viking cave and the famous Maya Bay**. Maya bay is usually last on the itinerary because it is a very popular attraction and it’s best to arrive there late when many of the other day trippers are leaving. You will have about one hour to enjoy Maya Bay.
At 5.00 pm you will depart Maya Bay and head back to Phuket. You’ll be back at your hotel at around 6.30-7.00 pm
The itinerary is subject to change.
**Maya bay is closed for conservation until further notice. The boat will pass the bay for photo taking, but will not stop on the beach.

What to expect
In order to see so many places in a short time the boat needs to keep on the move but because passenger numbers are limited to about 20-30 per boat it can be managed smoothly. If you must see all the islands in one day this tour is your best option.
You’ll visit both Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley Islands as well as Bamboo Island.
You’ll see the famous Maya Bay plus Monkey Beach (yes there are monkeys on the beach).
Kayaks are also available for use on Koh Yao Yai.
Khai Islands is where you can stand in the shallow water and have small reef fish eat out of your hands.
