Getting there & away
Ko Phi Phi can be reached from Krabi, Phuket, Ao Nang and Ko Lanta. Most boats moor at Ao Ton Sai, though a few from Phuket use the isolated northern pier at Laem Thong. The Phuket and Krabi boats operate year-round while the Ko Lanta and Ao Nang boats only run in the October to April high season.
Boats depart from Krabi for Ko Phi Phi at 9.30am, 10.30am and 2.30pm (500B, 1½ hours). From Phuket, boats leave at 8.30am, 1.30pm and 2.30pm, and return from Ko Phi Phi at 9am, 2.30pm and 3pm (550B to 650B, 1¾ to two hours). To Ko Lanta, boats leave Phi Phi at 11.30am and 2pm, and return from Ko Lanta at 8am and 1pm (300B, 1½ hours). A boat departs from the Ko Phi Phi Marine National Park headquarters jetty at 9am, returning from Ko Phi Phi (via Railay) at 3.30pm (550B, two hours). Prices may drop by 50B in the low season.
