Join us on a Bioluminescent Plankton SnorkelingTour of Maya Bay

Sunset Cruise and Plankton Tour In Maya Bay


The excursion leaves from the main pier on Phi Phi Don at 3:00pm and returns around 8:30pm.


The plankton and sunset cruise departs every second day from December to March on even calendar days. We will accept bookings for groups of 10 or more on other days. 


It costs 1,200 baht per person. This includes snorkeling gear, fresh fruit, drinking water and dinner on the boat. The cost also includes the National Park fee.


Visit the Viking Caves and then on to Pileh Bay for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking before arriving at Maya Bay, where you will have free time to explore the island.


Sit on the beach and watch the other boats leave as Maya Bay slowly but surely becomes yours.


We then return to the boat for sunset and fabulous photo opportunities and enjoy a hot dinner consisting of curry chicken, mixed vegetables and rice.


When it’s dark, you will have the opportunity to snorkel the amazing bio-luminescent plankton. See the incredible underwater light show, right in front of your eyes. To get the most out of this tour you need to go in the water with a mask on. You can see the bio-luminescence sitting on the boat or by dangling your feet in the water and kicking. However if you hop in the water with a mask only then will you see the psychedelic light show at its best. If you are not a strong swimmer don't worry as we have plenty of life jackets.


There are many other sunset tours on Phi Phi but we are unique because:


• We leave Phi Phi at 3:00 pm and arrive at our destinations as the other tour boats are leaving.

Sit on the beach in Maya Bay and watch the day-tripping crowds leave!


• We have a big boat with a toilet, plenty of sun baking and shady areas, stereo and fresh water on board. You are free to wander around the boat and mingle with the other customers – far better than being stuck on a crowded long tail boat


.​​• Our boat is well maintained. We are  continually carrying out preventative maintenance and completely refurbish the boat every year.



What's included:

· National Park entry fee

· Masks and snorkels

· Kayaks

· Fresh fruit and drinking water

· Delicious chicken, vegetable and rice dinner on the boat
