Officially founded in 2018, in partnership with U.S. based TravelPirate Tours and local Thai operators. Our company was built after seeing visitors to our island constantly being crammed into overcrowded boats by tour companies and not having the "island experience" they were hoping for. We built our online platform so visitors can easily reserve and book a private tour around the island while still supporting the local community. We understand, navigating the hiring process of private long tail boat trips can be difficult and confusing for most. You never know exactly where you will be going and what type of service you will receive. We wanted a different more personable approach...
Our Mission Is To:
Provide sustainable tour options that are safe, fun, and cultural.
Design our tours so that customers can experience "The Real" Thailand.
Create local partnerships that directly benefit the local community.
Promote vibrant marine life through ocean clean up volunteer programs.
Educate travelers on the importance of keeping our oceans litter free.
We are passionate about Thailand as a whole and want to see to it that these beautiful islands will be here for many generations to come. Our team is made up of local Thai's from Phi Phi or nearby Krabi, Phang Nga, and Phuket. Together we hope to create a "Island Experience"that is everything you dreamt of and more. We pride ourselves in delivering a personable and cultural adventure tour customized exactly for your "travel style".
"No trip to Thailand is complete without an Authentic longtail boat tour."
