Small archipelago of six islands. It is touted to be one of the most beautiful yet easily accessible island groups in the world. The islands came to worldwide prominence when Koh Phi Phi Leh Maya Beach was used as a location for the 2000 British-American film The Beach starring Leonardo di Caprio.
It is superstar among Thailand’s islands.
Snorkeling day trip to Phi Phi Islands covers everything. You can snorkel, dive or just swim in the blue lagoons. Phi Phi is a great place to do your PADI Discover Scuba Dive. It is highly probable that people see turtle or shark on their very first dive and will fall into love with diving! Phi Phi is one the best snorkeling place in the Andaman Sea with plenty of colorful marine life just few meters under the water surface.
Of the two islands, one is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Leh), and the other is without roads, but offers huge entertainment possibilities (Phi Phi Don). Koh Phi Phi was devastated by the Indian Ocean Tsunami of December 2004, when nearly all of the island’s infrastructure was destroyed. As of 2010 most, but not all, of this has been restored.
Maya Bay, on the island of Phi Phi Leh, was closed in 2018 after officials said a sharp rise in visitors had severely damaged the environment. But now tourists are being allowed back due to the ecosystem recovering.

Please Note – This Is NOT an Exclusive Snorkel Only Tour. There maybe scuba divers onboard too. In some areas the entry from the boat will be in 5-10m deep water and will require a snorkel over to the shallower areas. The surface conditions can be choppy at times. We stop at 2-3 snorkeling spots during the trip.
