Simba is an exceptional tour operator in Thailand. This was the 2nd tour we purchased with Simba and we received the same level of quality service. The first was Krabi. Momo is an excellent tour guide. She went above and beyond for each passenger. Thank you for the incredible experience.…

I did this trip solo and still had an amazing time. My friend wanted to scuba dive and I wanted a bit more exploration, so we split up. I can't say enough good things about the experience. We had a small, intimate group, which I loved. Even though the beginning…

The food was amazing

It was an expensive trip but we were not sorry at all. There were only 14 of us on the boat. The crew and the guide were full of energy and they really looked like they love their job. They were smiling and joking all the time and they showed…

Late in the afternoon is a truly wonderful time of the day to be enjoying the sites, with great lighting as the sun sets, cooler temperatures and a lot less tourist crowds. 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!
To ensure the greatest experience possible, our Phi Phi island tour is very flexible. We juggle many variables to afford you the best day out for the conditions of the day. This may mean a re-ordering of our site visits to cater for tides or other water conditions, but never at the expense of your enjoyment.

Experience the Phi Phi Islands from underwater - 1st Snorkeling Stop
Enjoy the magnificent scenery above the water of limestone Karsts towering over you at Camel rock/Nui Beach. Relax and take it all in before exploring the beautiful scenery beneath the water as well. Snorkel amongst massive coral heads with an abundance of fish, including clown fish, small black-tip reef sharks, moray eels and thousands of other fish of many varieties.
We supply all your snorkelling 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.
The tour’s emerald crown, Pileh Lagoon
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.
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.
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.
