How do I get to Phi Phi Don from Krabi?

You need to catch a ferry from Krabi Pier, located near Krabi Town. The cheapest way to get to Phi Phi Don is to buy a combined taxi and boat transfer from the airport or from your hotel.

These can be purchased from any travel shop in Krabi and do not need to be booked in advance.


The ferries leave from Krabi at 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm. The trip takes 2 hours

If you are coming to Phi Phi on the day you plan on doing one of our tours you will need to catch a morning ferry to arrive in time for our 3 pm departure.

What about mosquitoes?

On the island mosquitoes are not too bad. Usually, mosquitoes are only around at dusk and dawn. If there is more than a slight breeze, however, they won’t be around at all. On the boat there are none at all.

What should I bring with me ?

Bring a change of clothes, towel, camera, insect repellent and money for drinks.

What is for dinner?

Vegetable Curry, Chicken Green Curry, (all medium spicy), mixed vegetables in oyster sauce (not spicy) and steamed rice. Supper is BBQ chicken and garlic bread.

What is the weather like in low season?​

Thailand weather is unpredictable from May to November. We have learnt there is no weather forecast you can 100% rely on.

 

The weather in Phi Phi is different from Phuket, and different again from Krabi. It actually rains less on Phi Phi Don and less again on Phi Phi Leh (Maya Bay) than it does in Phuket or in Krabi.


The weather is normally really good. It might rain most days in those months, but it is often hard and short. Because it is hot anyway, most people don’t really mind such rain showers. However maybe four times per year it will rain for 3-5 days straight. The problem with this is that you can’t predict when the big storms will happen.

 

As a guide, for the past two years, we have had to cancel approximately three  trips per month due to bad weather in low season.

We do have cover if it rains  and some of our favourite memories include swimming in Maya Bay in torrential rain.


If you come with us, and we have to cancel due to bad weather, we will try and reschedule your trip, or offer you a full refund.

Are trips suitable for Children?​

All our tours are suitable for children as long as they can swim.
