Luxury Speed Boat Transfer
Updated: Aug 28, 2020
Private family transfer from Phuket to Phi Phi
This was actually a savvy and swanky move all in one! Although it may sound expensive, we actually ended up saving money by doing a luxury private speedboat transfer with 5 Star Marine to our Phi Phi hotel vs using the hotel speedboat option.
We set off from Boat Lagoon around 8:30am, away from the main hustle and bustle with plenty of parking in the area. Unfortunately, we picked some grotty weather (not dangerous, but pretty drizzly and a bit windy), so opted for just the transfer rather than the full Phi Phi snorkeling tour - there will be more on this at a later date once we book our day tour in again.
Here's my 5 year old enjoying the ride despite the cloudy weather, and as you can see there's plenty of space on board (up to 18 people can fit easily). 5 Star also provide life jackets for adults and children, soft drinks, ice, water, captain and tour guide as standard, so we only needed to bring ourselves and our towels.
Arrival at our Phi Phi hotel
And just like that we were there. . Well, about 1 hour later - we were not going full speed due to weather conditions though
We were literally dropped 'at the door' of our hotel (The Phi Phi Island Village Resort - see my hit and miss review on this here). A much nicer alternative to the busy, older and less comfortable hotel boat transfers, and as long as you have a small group together it can be a similar (if not better) price with their current Covid discounts.
Although we only did the transfer, they also offer a selection of day, half day and customised charters which are currently (during Covid 2020) on a huge 50% discount. To give you an idea of the deals; a full day for up to 18 people to go to Phi Phi, snorkel, grab some lunch, explore, etc. now costs only 13,250bht. Details of this tour can be found here
