Overview

Enjoy Maya Bay without the crowds. You will get the chance to Snorkel with the amazing Plankton when it gets dark. See the amazing underwater light show right in front of your eyes. Jump of our boat and watch the colors! You will find other Sunset tours on Phi Phi but we are different becausewe go later than the other tours. We leave at 3:00 pm and arrive out our destinations as the other tours are leaving. Sit in Maya Bay and watch the crowds leave.We have a 15 meter cruiser with music (bring your IPOD,Plenty of sun baking and shade areas. We have a toilet and fresh water shower on board. We limit our numbers to a maximum of 30 people.

I am sorry the experience was not as good as it could have been. As you have said we cannot control the weather which was fine when we but turned dangerous quickly. Joe Joe had to make the tough decision not to move the boat...More

We had an amazing time, the crew was ready for fun from the very beginning. The beach party they set up was truly a unique experience that made the evening that much better. Could not recommend this tour enough.
