not possible. Day trips leave at 7am or 8am. Phi Phi is quite far from phuket so on a regular boat it would take 3 hours. YOu would have to hire your own speedboat.

Hi, thanks for this.

though i have read an article talking about a half day speed boat trip which starts at 1130am. but I'm not sure how this should be possible.

Anyway, September is still rainy season and the sea can be too rough for a speedboat on some days.

It may be worth looking at Phang Nga bay. If you went straight from the airport to the boat pier in Phang Nga you might be able to fit a tour of the bay in.

Maybe consider a tour of Phang Nga Bay? It is closer to the airport and is very beautiful. A trip to Phi Phi would be more of a problem with your timing.

John Gray Sea Canoe do a good afternoon/evening tour of Phang Nga Bay. If you have a group, or big budget, then private charter of a speed boat would also be a good option.

Either case go straight from the airport to the pier at Po Bay, have the company store your luggage and go to your hotel at the end of the trip.

This works, we have done it in the past.

Good luck,

Mark.

All of the good company's will have left by then, you could try John Greys or private charter as suggested.
