Phi Phi Paradise 2000 Ferry

One of the key ferry boats from Phuket to Phi Phi Island is the direct service of the Paradise 2000. Running from Rasada pier every day this ferry service has made a big impression on the local people of Phi Phi Island as of 2002.

Direct ferry service to Phi Phi Island

There are 7 other boats in the ferry schedule schedule that go Phuket to Phi Phi Island in the morning. Apart from Sea Breeze 2 (to the Cabana Hotel), they all involve organized tours taking in Phi Phi Ley on the way to the island.

This means that the Paradise 2000 is the fastest boat in the morning to get to the main pier at Tonsai Village. (The Sea Tran ferry can get to Phi Phi Island earlier as it is a faster ferry but it anchor's off in the bay and the transfer to the beach (at Tonsai Village Bungalows) is slower.However in the low season when the waves can be bigger, this is the ferry service to take as this ferry is the best designed in the larger waves.

The Locals' Boat

Due to the time, the Paradise 2000 is the favored boat of the local population and those not doing a one day tour. The other advantage is that there are rarely tour groups on board which makes seating more easy.
