We went on a full day tour to Phi Phi island and a few other islands today! We were told when booking that company will not go if too rough and it may be cancelled on day. We were ok with this. Even thou the price was reduced due to low season, it was a terrible experience. We went with our 9yr old and I took my mother who is 74yrs as well. The tour group starts by saying that safety is most important!!! Well I think they should have cancelled as the ride out was horrendous. It was so rough and scary. The boat was over crowded, at least 40 people piled in and you could not see out or any view, just listen to the motor and smells from the petrol fumes from the motors. Poor people were so sick and crying due to how rough it was. For elderly people it was difficult for them to get on and off as the step ups and downs were big, almost needed a smaller step up. They suggest strongly you hire flippers for 100B and we did not even use them!! I did not leave boat until we reached Phi Phi for lunch. Lunch was below average, but I expected that. I felt very unsafe in the speed boat with the waves smashing up against the boat,the boat airbourne over some waves and all I wanted was to get off. I believe in high season the waters are calm and clear, but the number of boats would be out of control. I counted 15 boats today in low season at the last stop Khai Noi, with at least 40 people on all. Khai Noi you have to pay to sit on beach chair, and sellers trying to sell drinks and anything else. It was good to get off boat but I was so worried about what we still had to face to get back to Phuket!!! Overall not worth the money or stress and putting your safety at risk in the low season as sea is way too rough and dangerous. The other issue is how do you select a good tour, they all offer the same thing??? I would not recommend this to anyone.
