What To Expect

Our sleep aboard is a unique way to see the best of the astonishing Koh Phi Phi and surrounding islands. We are the only operator on Phi Phi that allows you to immerse yourself in wanderlust, sleep under the stars aboard our purpose built 90 foot wooden boat, leave footprints on idyllic beaches and listen to the waves lapping the soft, white sand providing you your own Robinson Crusoe moment!

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 still allows us to sleep overnight 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.

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

  • We leave Phi Phi at 03:00pm 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. See more Phi Phi Islands Tour.

Money taken during tour

****Money taken during tour****nnI wanted to give this place 5 stars because the tour is really fun and we had the best time on the sleep aboard trip. Snorkeling in the bioluminescent plankton and having a bonfire on the beach and playing games was our favorite part. The food was really good especially the barbecue chicken. Most of the crew was great.nnThat being said when we went to go to tip the crew at the end of our trip we were missing significant amount of money. The office was no help to us they didnu2019t even offer to summon the police and help with a police report as there was a language barrier. The owners insisted it was another customer that took it, however we had our money on us at all times unless we were in the water which was done as a group.nnI normally wouldnu2019t even post a review but I donu2019t want what happened to us to happen to another customer. Iu2019d still recommend this tour but find a way to keep your money on your person at all times or just bring enough to tip. We were really disappointed it ended this way and will not be returning.

Incredible time on Maya Bay Sleepaboard

Highly recommend staying a night on the Maya bay sleep aboard. I stayed here a few weeks ago and it was one of the best nights I had in Koh Phi phi. From night snorkeling with glowing green plankton, to kayaking, to a private beach campfire with drinks and games, it was an incredible time. Not to mention two visits to beautiful Maya Bay where u201cThe Beachu201d was filmed. The staff were all helpful and friendly and really made the whole trip run smoothly. Sleeping on the upper deck is not too bad since you are partying at night and then wake up pretty early for a morning view of Maya bay. But it is all totally worth it if you are looking for a unique and memorable experience you canu2019t get anywhere else on Koh phi phi!

Most memorable experience

Letu2019s start by saying the owner went above and beyond to accommodate our group. The staff were amazing. Food was delicious. Private bonfire was so fun. Sleeping under the stars was the highlight of my experience. To be honest I canu2019t do this excursion justice with a simple review. Stay overnight. You wonu2019t regret it. Iu2019ll never forget this experience. Thank you for everything!

Una experiencia inolvidable para hacer en pareja o con amigos, esta muy buena, ves maya bay sin ni una persona, podes saltar desde arriba del barco (mas de 6 metros), hacer snorkel y kayak con pequeu00f1os tiburones y encima la comida que te dan a bordo es riquisima (mencion especial para la barbacoa de Bao que nos hizo un pollo exquisito y una papa para mi novia que es vegetariana a la parrilla); sumado a que tienen un bar y una barra para poder tomar baldes de ron o vodka, y tambien fumar para los que quieran.nLo que mas quiero destacar es la atencion de TODO el staff de gente a cargo, a nosotros nos toco estar solos a la noche en el barco como si fuera un bote privado y la atenciu00f3n fue igual como si estuviera lleno de gente. Ademas nos cuidaron nuestras valijas y nos llevaron hasta nuestro hotel que no estaba cerca del puerto.nSi estas buscando una actividad diferente y poder ver la playa mas famosa de Tailandia sin ni una persona, lo super recomendamos
