Has anyone stayed in Krabi and taken the ferry over to Phi Phi and then booked a private longtail for the day? Wondering if by the time you get over to Phi Phi around noon due to the ferry schedule if all the longtails are booked and the popular spots (Maya Bay, Bamboo Island, etc.) are filled with tourists and it's not worth it or if it's the opposite and because we'd be starting later everyone would be leaving since the tours only stay in once place for so long? Maybe it wouldn't be so bad?
Or would we be better off just spending a couple days in Phi Phi instead of staying in Krabi? (We're already staying in Phuket for 5 days but I'm not sure I can travel all the way to Thailand and NOT see the Phi Phi Islands.) All ideas/suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
