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

Phi Phi Maya Bay has been a "must sightseeing location" for hordes of Thailand tourists for decades and as such, has suffered from its overuse. Thankfully the National Park prohibited from 2018 to the end of 2021, any boat 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, you will be one of the first boats to arrive and this awe inspiring bay to enjoy placing the first footprints of the day into it's fine white sand.

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: 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: 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.

Very early start but worth it. Very entertaining crew, Noi Noi was awesome. Swimming and snorkeling in clear teal waters. Lots of aquatic wildlife. Got lucky with the weather with clear skies after a night of thunderstorms. Good food for breakfast and lunch.

From start to finish, this tour was perfectly managed and executed by the knowledgeable and friendly staff on board. We managed to stay one step ahead of other tour groups with the early start which meant our stops at various sights and beaches were not crowded, especially at Maya Bay which was spectacular in the early morning sun! The staff were so personable and helpful, especially encouraging to hesitant swimmers and snorkelers, and so gentle with the children on board. The food and snacks were authentic Thai which added to the whole experience. Time spent at each location was just enough to enjoy the activities and take plenty of photos, and the the 3pm finish meant the day didn’t feel so long. Overall an amazing tour not to be missed!

Cindy & the crew were excellent. Heaps of food throughout & nice lunch at the restaurant. Plenty of time for snorkeling, swimming or relaxing. All the sites & beaches were lovely. This is my 3rd trip with Simba but my friends 1st. Highlight of our holiday. Highly recommend.

Everything is amazing! From the start to the end, we got enough time to enjoy Maya Bay, snorkelling and swimming. Jade and crew staff are so great and so caring! They picked us up at 05:00am from the hotel and we arrived their office around 06:00am, briefing and some snack before getting on the boat. The journey is around 1 hour to Maya bay. It’s so quiet when we arrived and we were the first one of the day! We had taken some really nice pictures! Then we went to the next stops for swimming and snorkelling, the time we can spend is good enough! Normally some yours just rush you to the next stop, but the arranged time is quite sufficient for each activity and lunch. My partner has allergies to walnut and the staff even arranged a special meal for him. It’s so kind and we appreciate it. If I could I will give 11/10! Love the tour and brought us an amazing day!

One of my favourite days out in Phuket . We were picked up exactly on time by a lovely driver on a really comfortable minibus . Had a few pick ups then we were taking to the marina . We checked in and were offered a light breakfast . It was very nice then we were taken to the boat to meet our lovely crew . We headed off to the islands the sea was quite rough but the captain made us feel really safe . We arrived at the first island it’s absolutely gorgeous and Jade helped us take some amazing photos she made us pose and the photos turned out amazing . We had a lovely little snack the banana bread was delicious then we had some time to explore and back to the boat . Of. We went to the next stop we’re we had a swim in the gorgeous warm sea the crew are amazing and offered noodles and helped some people who were nervous to swim . Back on the boat we were offered gorgeous cut fruit and drinks and off we went to another spot for a snorkel the sea was amazing and the crew took us off to see some gorgeous fish which he pointed out on laminated card so we knew what fish was what . I didn’t get his name but he was amazing we saw puffer fish, parrot fish , baby sharks , trumpet fish and loads more it was one of the best things I’ve done the coral and sea garden are truly amazing things to see . I loved every minute here . We then headed off to another spot for a snorkel again the crew were amazing and I saw so much . I didn’t want to get out the water . We then went to see the monkeys . We were offered drinks and a little biscuit and we then went to lunch . It was delicious and loads of it . We headed back to the boat and off we went to another island we’re we had some time to chill out see the hermit crabs and another swim the sea was crystal clear . We then headed back the sea was pretty rough but the captain took his time so it took over an hour but it was quite exciting hitting the waves and I didn’t feel unsafe . We arrived back at the harbour and our transfer was waiting to take us back to our hotel . It was a wonderful trip the crew are amazing and make it a truly unforgettable day out . We would recommend this trip 100% .
