The #1 ranked speedboat tour company in Thailand on Trip Advisor, is a highly acclaimed company with 13 years experience, conducting high quality tours that specialise in small tour groups and avoiding crowds of tourists.  94% of our 2750 reviews are 5 star! 

Six islands make up this beautiful and world famous location, situated in the southeast Andaman Sea.

We concentrate our tour on the two main islands famous for their natural beauty and spectacular underwater scenery. Phi Phi Don, the largest island, is the only one of the six to have accommodation and its surrounding waters have been a Mecca for divers and snorkelers alike for well over 30 years.

Phi Phi Leh is the smaller of the two main islands and is of course, world famous for Maya Bay where the movie The Beach was filmed. It takes us between an hour and an hour and a half from Royal Phuket Marina to reach the Phi Phi Islands.

We collect you from your hotel around 5am and depart at 6am.

Tours demand relaxation time - Bamboo Beach

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

Our tour guide Nui was awesome! He's super friendly, funny, and outgoing... made us feel comfortable from the get go. The crew took great care of us. Always on the ready with snacks, drinks, and whatever to make us feel comfortable. It's an early wake up of course but so worth it. The weather was nice and there weren't any huge waves. Seeing the sunrise was gorgeous. Snorkeling was my favorite. Be careful of sea lice and swimming near rocks... it can irritate your skin. Nui was great at following us into the water and leading us to interesting things to see. Phuket is such a tourist trap that this was a really nice calm and fun getaway from all the crazy. Definitely recommend if you have half a day to spare!

Wife and i took the grandkids on the early morning tour. Pick up was on time(5am). Wonderful crew and only 18 people on our trip. We beat the crowds and had an awesome time. Beautiful scenery and great food. Trip was a little pricey(over$800 AUD) for the 4 of us. Kids 14 and 9 yrs old. But if you want that special day you will look back on and have no negatives about the day then book with Sinbad tours. Skipper was there to help me in and out of the boat everytime I swam or snorkelled. Mo Mo was lovely as our host. Other boats had a lot more people on them. Thanks guys. Steve and Julie .

We had chosen to go out to Phi Phi islands in the end of August. The reviews indicated that it was a reputable tour and I decided to take it even though they were a little bit more expensive. On the day of the trip I had called them in the morning if the trip was cancelled as we were experiencing bad weather the whole night. They informed me that I can't cancel the trip and only Simba tours will do so after assessing the weather. In the morning the refused to cancel the trip as the rains had slowed down a little. But the whole experience was dampened due to the weather. To make matters worse the weather turned even worse on the trip back and everyone in the boat was simply praying that we will make it through the day. This was simply and unacceptable risk to take with your client. This company does not seem to cancel any trip no matter the weather. I was expecting them to be more profession. The crew themselves were friendly and tried to make us better it was obvious that they were just as nervous.
