Sunset Cruise and Plankton Tour 
Swim with the Phosphorescent Plankton
You have come a long way so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.

Maya Bay Tours supports the closure of the beach at Maya Bay in order for the recovery of coral reefs, mangrove forest and the general ecosystem.

 

Our planned itinerary allows us snorkel with the Plankton in Maya Bay but we do not have access to the beach. To actually see the bay without any boats moored and not a single person or footprint in the sand is truly a sight to behold

 

If the weather conditions do not suit mooring in Maya Bay we have several other options that are just as beautiful including Loh Moo Dee beach, Plieh bay and Loh Sama bay or Monkey Beach.

 

Each of these locations has an abundance of sparkling bioluminescent plankton so you will get to experience the psychedelic underwater show.

 

Wherever we end up we promise you will have the experience of a life time.

 

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

  

• We leave Phi Phi at 3:00 pm and arrive at our destinations as the other tour boats are departing leaving you free to explore and experience the quieter side of Phi Phi’s Andaman Sea and its stunning surroundings 

 

​ 

• We have a  purpose built 90 foot boat with a 2 western toilets and showers, 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. We are the only tour that offers a freshly cooked all you can eat buffet.

  

.​​• Our boat is brand new in 2018 and has been built especially for our customers needs.and we will conduct annual preventative maintenance to maintain it at the highest standards.

 

 

Itinerary

 

  

  • Check onto our Phi Phi Don office between 2:30 and 2:45 pm (detailed map on contacts page of this website)

  • Show your voucher on your phone/tablet or print out and store any large luggage for free and pack a smaller bag with things you will need for our trip; swimwear, towel, mosquito spray, camera and of course, your abundant sense of adventure!

  ​ 

  • We will all walk to the pier at 2:50 pm for a 3:00 pm departure  as  we set sail on our Phi Phi adventure!

  

  • Our first stop is Viking Caves for a photo and then onto the stunning Pileh bay for snorkeling and kayaking. We can usually spot some harmless black tipped reef sharks if you are quiet enough.

 

  • After a snack fresh fruit we then head to Maya Bay. As we arrive the day trippers will be leaving and we will be left with our own paradise so you are free to snorkel, relax and kayak whilst the sun goes down.

  

  • Around 6:30 pm it’s time for a delicious all you can eat Thai feast. Special diets are catered for with individual meals

  • After your meal has settled, put on your life jacket, masks and snorkels and swim with the glowing plankton. Submerge your head in the sea, agitate the water to make the plankton glow to experience a liquid starry night and a truly magical kaleidoscopic light show

  • After you have had enough swimming with the plankton you can enjoy the magnificent night time view as we return to Phi Phi Don Tonsai Pier around 9 pm. Remember there are no boats back to Phuket or Krabi at that time. You will need accommodation on Phi Phi Island.

  

Please note that we may need to change the itinerary depending in wind and wave direction. We have many stunning options we can choose from to make sure you are not disappointed but please remember we are in the hands of mother nature.

As the trip has limited numbers it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
