My name is Donlaya and me and my friend Capatain Lay have been living in the Phi Phi Islands area of Thailand for many years. Captain Lay is a qualified longtail boat captain and has unique local knowledge of the small islands and best spots around Phi Phi Island. Tourists like to see the hidden spots and best places to visit in the area and I want to share this with small, intimate select groups. This experience gives you an eco friendly option promoting sustainable tourism. Snorkeling and enjoying the natural beauty of Thailand is a hobby of mine and I am sure you will enjoy exploring it!
We'll provide local fruit for guests to enjoy during the trip. This is likely to be pineapple or watermelon.
Water and soft drinks will be provided in our cool box on the longtail boat. You can help yourself if you are thirsty!
Snorkeling equipment is provided for use. You are more than welcome to bring your own but we also have you covered with…
The experience will take place in the oceans around Phi Phi Don. There are a few excellent spots for seeing the bioluminescent plankton. To see these effectively, it has to be dark so we will be going to two areas in the shadow of Phi Phi Don's cliffs. These areas are also close to the Monkey Beach which is popular during the day time. We won't be going snorkeling in the middle of the ocean and the two spots I have chosen are close to land.

The infamous plankton are popular as they seem to glow in the dark and give off light. You can only see the plankton if you go to a super dark location. If you are not comfortable on a longtail boat or snorkeling in the dark then I wouldn't advise this trip.
