Every Phi Phi ferry ends up at the main pier at Phi Phi Don Village on Tonsai Bay. The pier is in a beautiful natural harbour surrounded by cliffs, beaches and coral reefs.

The pier is busy with people but also goods and drinking water coming to and from the market.
The normal Phi Phi ferry is long and thin designed to get people places quickly. As each year progresses, larger, more sea worthy ferries have been employed to carry their guests more comfortably, especially in the low season when there can be waves big waves.

The Phi Phi ferry to Phuket in the morning departs 9.00 am and is used by local Phi Phi people going to market to return in the afternoon. Travellers trying to get a 13.00 pm flight from Phuket International Airport also use this ferry.
The primary route for the Phi Phi ferry is from Phuket as day trippers come from the west coast beaches of Patong, Karon and Kata. The key attraction is time spent around Maya Bay as this is where Leonardo Di Caprio made his movie'The Beach'. These ferries leave Phuket at 08.30 in the morning and return from Phi Phi at 14.30. These are the largest ferries and the most comfortable.
Phi Phi ferry to Krabi
The Phi Phi ferry to Krabi is the main route for locals as Phi Phi is in Krabi Province and most of the government paperwork and banking gets done in Krabi Town.
