What to expect
In the morning the ferry arrives at Phi Phi Ley Island and slowly passes the main Maya bay, Piley cove, Loh Samah bay and Viking Cave for sightseeing (but not swimming). Then you change to the speedboat and zip over to Nui bay, Bamboo Island for snorkeling. Lunch is a fabulous seafood BBQ served at the Phi Phi Erawan resort on Laemthong beach. After lunch you can swim and relax at the beach.
We always get positive feedback from this trip, it’s especially popular in the summer months when the weather is unpredictable and a big boat is more comfortable than a speedboat.
