Phi Phi Sunrise - The original

Tour Overview

Tour the beautiful islands surrounding Phuket

Update on Maya Bay restrictions – please note Thai National park authorities have prohibited boats from dropping anchors or alighting their passengers within Maya Bay indefinitely, to assist with environmental regeneration.

Simba’s Phi Phi sunrise tour involves an early start. To begin, our Phi Phi island tour from Phuket leaves from the Royal Marina at 6am and arrives back by 2-2.30pm to avoid the crowds. This is AT LEAST 2 hours before most other companies start their Phuket boat tours to the Phi Phi islands. Keep in mind that over 10,000 visitors flock to Phi Phi every day in the high season. That’s a lot of people to share these small islands with! But not with our spacious speed boats! Enjoy a head start to your tour that will mean you won’t have to deal with the crowds.

To ensure the greatest experience possible, our Phi Phi island tour is very flexible. We juggle many variables to afford you the best experience possible. This may mean the omission of certain locations, but never at the expense of your enjoyment. Other companies may promise the world, but we and our tour guide staff deliver!

Our tour of the Phi Phi Islands is one of our most famous tours and it is beloved by a lot of our guests. We have provided hundreds of people with the ability to discover the islands of Phi Phi in a relaxing manner that spans the entire day and is jam packed with amazing activities. The Phi Phi Island Tour is your gateway to blue horizons and unforgettable scenery. Take the trip of a lifetime by booking your seat for a magical adventure today!

Duration: approximately 7-8 hours on the water.

Please note: We cannot guarantee you will see the Sunrise on each trip and the timings for sunrises do vary. Also, cloudy days can make it difficult to see the sunrise.

Stop 1

Tours demand relaxation time - Bamboo Beach

Visit the popular, beautiful and secluded Bamboo beach. Be the first to step foot onto the beautiful sand on this sightseeing tour. We serve a yummy breakfast and swim for about 30 minutes, relax and take in the sights. Take your time to enjoy the island’s beauty at one of the most stunning beaches in the world.

Stop 2

The tour’s emerald crown, Pileh Lagoon - Tide Dependent

Our next port of call on our sunrise tour, if tide allows, is Pileh Lagoon before the crowds arrive. It is a spectacular emerald green lagoon surrounded by high limestone cliffs on 3 sides, one of the world's most gorgeous natural swimming pools. Grab your action camera and film or take a photo of the extremely spectacular view of the emerald waters merging with the caves and the blue clear horizon.

Stop 3

Phi Phi Island Tour’s first glimpse of magic - Maya Bay

Phi Phi Maya Bay has been a "must see" for hordes of tourists for decades and as such, has suffered from it's overuse. Thankfully the National Park has now prohibited boats from dropping anchor in the bay and alighting at the beach, to allow the gorgeous coral island treasures, wildlife and environment time to recover. At Simba, we are still able to drive the boat well inside the bay for some spectacular views and photo opportunities during the day trip.
Accordingly, this has little impact on the quality of this tour, as it is a tiny part of a 380Sq/km National Park. Every way you look, there is magnificent natural beauty.

Stop 4

Experience the Phi Phi Islands from underwater - 1st Snorkeling Stop

It is now time to explore the magical underwater world with some swimming and snorkeling during our speedboat tour.
We supply all your snorkeling equipment including fins and flotation aids such as life jackets and swim noodles. The staff are always there (in and out of the water) ready to help any first timers with encouragement, advice and sometimes just a helping hand throughout the day tour.
In around Phi Phi waters, we are regularly visited by Whale Sharks, Dolphins, Whales and Reef Sharks. If you're lucky we may see these on tour!

Stop 5

Phi Phi Islands have their secrets - Macaque Monkeys and the Viking Cave

During the tour, we will stop by one of the local beaches for a viewing of the monkey troops. For our own safety, we stay on the boat whilst viewing these cute Long-tailed Macaques on the monkey beach. For animal lovers, this is one of the most featured moments of the tour!
The Viking Cave is home to the special Birds’ Nests used to make Birds Nest Soup. It is not possible to enter this enormous cave but we will show you from the outside and you can witness the armed guards guarding the birds' nests from looters!

Stop 6

Islands and Crystal Waters - 2nd Snorkeling Stop

It's time to say hello to the fishes again with another snorkeling stop on our Phi Phi Island Tour. Or we can have an extended swim and relax on the beach. We are flexible with our itinerary to ensure that our guests have the best day possible.

Stop 7

Phi Phi Islands at their best - Koh Rang Yai

Our penultimate stop of the Phi Phi island tour for some swimming and relaxation at an idyllic tropical island named Rang Yai. A well-kept secret you'll not want to leave! During the tour you will have the chance to see many beautiful places, but make no mistake this amazing island is one of the best. The perfect way to build up your appetite for the final stop.

Stop 8

A taste of the Phi Phi Islands - Lunch time

Lunch at a seaside restaurant with all the flavours of the islands. Many have enjoyed the scrumptious family style lunch. Because Simba leaves early in the morning you’ll reach this beautiful beachside restaurant well before the crowds.
