What can you expect

Do you want to see the world famous Phi Phi Island without the masses of tourists? Then join the speedboat by Sea Eagle Tour with a limited number of seats and a departure in the early morning!

A minibus will collect you from the hotel in Krabi, which may mean setting out as early as 6am. Check in with the Sea Eagle crew at Nopparat Thara Pier and depart at 7am with our comfortable speed boat with up to 40 seats. Cruise over to Railay Beach for a quick stopover to pickup other guests. Then enjoy a light breakfast at the still empty beach of Poda Island before heading to Phi Phi Leh in less than 45 minutes.

The highlight is a visit of Maya Bay where you can touch the white sand and dangle your feet into the turquoise water at 'The Beach'. You will have approximately 50 minutes to enjoy on one of the most stunning locations in Thailand, and if you lucky you can witness black tip reef sharks.

In Phileh Lagoon you can take spectacular photos of the 600 m long canyon framed by 100 m tall limestone cliffs and snorkel on the east side of Phi Phi Leh on coral reefs with crystal-clear waters. We have you covered with snorkeling gear, flippers and drinking water. There is also an optional ride by longtail boat available to explore small coves at a small extra fee if you like.

Cruise slowly past Viking Cave while learning the history behind the place where Phi Phi birds nest soup are harvested. Spot Long-Tailed Macaques having their breakfast down on the beaches of Monkey Beach!

Before midday, you will enjoy a Thai buffet lunch in Phi Phi Arida restaurant on Koh Phi Phi Don. Special preferences like vegetarian food have to be ordered prior to departure. Take some time to enjoy the bustling heart of Phi Phi with Tonsai Bay on the south side and Loh Dalum on the north.

In the afternoon you can swim and relax at the tranquil and serene beach of Bamboo Island, known as Koh Mai Phai in Thai. The island is almost shaped like a heart and is entirely surrounded by a strip of white sand. It offers great snorkeling opportunities with a shallow line of corals. Its central part is covered with lush vegetation including Casuarinas and Bamboo trees that gave its name to the island.

Continue to the 4 Island group and walk on the sandbar at Thale Waek connecting the offshore islands of Koh Kai, Koh Tup, and Koh Mor. Make some photos of the bizarre rock formation at Chicken Island before you will be directed to your shuttle driver for returns to your accommodation in Krabi.

  • Get enough sleep the night before the trip.
  • Notable rules at Maya Bay include no swimming, no single-use plastics, using reef-safe sunscreen and no use of drones without permission.
  • While Monkey Beach isn't a direct stop, you can still observe the monkeys when the tide is low.
  • Don't feed the monkeys as it makes them aggressive and stops them from foraging for food as they would normally do.
  • During certain seasons, jellyfish may be present in the Andaman Sea, and contact can cause skin irritation or discomfort. To minimize the risk, we recommend wearing protective clothing such as watershoes and long swimwear when swimming.
  • Ensuring your safety is our top priority. To that end, we strongly recommend wearing a life jacket throughout the entire boat ride to the islands and while snorkeling.
  • Speedboats navigate close to the shoreline, allowing passengers a convenient and effortless transition to the beach.
  • While flip-flops are convenient, water shoes offer better protection against sharp objects like shells or rocks on the sand, and provide improved traction on wet surfaces.
  • Shorts are ideal as they dry quickly and allow for greater freedom of movement, especially if the water level reaches above your knees when getting on or off the boat.
  • Thailand's Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation will close Maya Bay every year for 2 months in August and September.
  • There is a minimum of 6 people required to run this activity! On the rare occasion that we should be required to cancel this trip, we will inform you in advance and offer a different travel date, an alternative activity or provide a full refund.
