5 Island Phuket Boat Tour

There are a huge number of Phuket Boat Tour companies that offer a 5 Island Boat Tour. You would of course think that they are taking you to 5 islands, hence the very specific words in the heading, 5 Island Boat Tour.

However, most of these tours take you to Phi Phi, which is 6 islands.

2 big islands – Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Le, and 4 smaller islands nearby – Koh Yung, Koh Mai Phai, Koh Pida Nok and Koh Pida Nai

Saying this, on most Phuket 5 Island Boat Tours you won’t even go to 6 of the Phi Phi Islands, not even 5, or 4 or even 3. Generally, on any tour at Phi Phi, you will go to 2 islands.

Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Le

So why are there so many Phuket Boat Tours offering 5 Island tours?

Islands = Stops

There you go. That’s the answer. Simple and easy, but for marketing it’s better to say:

“Come on our 5 Island Boat Tour”, then it is to say “Come on our 5 Stop Boat Tour

Which one sounds better

If you do book a 5 Island Boat Tour here in Phuket it will most problem be a Boat Tour to Phi Phi, and the 5 Islands (Remember that Island = Stop) would be:

  1. Maya Bay
  2. Viking Cave
  3. Pileh Lagoon
  4. Monkey Beach
  5. Bamboo Beach

There you go. That’s your 5 Island Boat Tour.

Now, please don’t get us wrong. There is nothing at all wrong with this tour itinerary. All those 5 places are stunning and well worth a visit (not 100% sure about monkey beach thou.)

But it’s not 5 Islands.

So, what we are saying is to make sure you check with whoever your Phuket Boat Tour Operator is to be sure you know 100% what you are getting on a 5 Island Phuket Boat Tour.

A real 5 Island Phuket Boat Tour

There are 100s of islands in and around Phuket, so you would think a real 5 Island Phuket Boat Tour is easy. To be fair, it is. Phang Nga Bay alone has 43 different islands, with only one being famous, James Bond Island. There are some stunning hidden beaches and inlets that you can go and explore and you would easily get to do a 5 Island Phuket Boat Tour.

You could even just pop over the the Khai islands which are only 20 minutes away from Phuket Boat Lagoon. There are 3 Khai Islands so with just one short boat ride you have seen 60% of the islands you need to see on your 5 Island Phuket Boat tour.

If you do want to do island hopping, whether it be 5 Islands, 6 Islands, 2 Islands, or any number then the best choice would be to book a captain’s choice 5 Star Marine Phuket Boat tour. This tour will be designed by our team to make sure you get what you want. If you want to see 5 Islands then they can take you to 5 Islands. If you want to just see 1 then they can do that too (however I recommend you see more as 1 is never enough)

For us, we want you to get out and see the stunning islands around Phuket so whether you book a 5 Island Boat Tour (5 stops generally just go to Phi Phi) or you book a captain choice Island hopping tour with us at 5 Star Marine our main advice is:

It’s essential to check with the tour operator to understand the specific islands included in the itinerary and the activities offered during the tour.

And when you do book with us you will 100% get what you want, we can do a 5 Island Phuket Boat Tour.
