    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Simba Sea Trips, Thepkasattri Rd Royal Phuket Marina, Koh Kaew, Phuket Town, Phuket 83000 Thailand

    Arrive at our office for a briefing while you enjoy some breakfast snacks, tea and coffee to keep you going until breakfast on the beach.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Royal Phuket Marina, 68 Moo 2, Thepkasattri Rd., Koh Kaew, Phuket Town, Phuket 83200 Thailand

    Phukets only 5 star marina. Marvel at the beautiful yachts as we embark on our adventure into the Andaman sea.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bamboo Island, Ao Nang, Mueang Krabi District, Krabi 81000, Thailand

    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 1 hour, 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.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Pileh Bay, Ko Phi Phi Lee Thailand

    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.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi Lee Thailand

    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.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Viking Cave, Ko Phi Phi Don Thailand

    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!

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Monkey Beach, Ko Phi Phi Don Thailand

    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!

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Nui Beach, Ko Phi Phi Don 81000 Thailand

    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.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Rang Yai Island, Ko Kaeo, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83000, Thailand

    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.

    Lunch at a seaside restaurant with all the flavours of the islands. Many have enjoyed the scrumptious family style lunch.

    The meal is provided in one of the most beautiful island settings imaginable and will provide all the nourishment you need after a long day at sea.

    Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

    What sort of "Sports"? June is low season (raining and breezy) so most of the boat trips are limited to slower boats in rougher seas.
