  2. […] Between the PP Erawan and the Holiday Inn, there is a small area called the “Sea Gypsy Village” where some local people live. The Sea Gypsy village sounds rather rustic but it’s not really, there’s a sign indicating where it is, a grocery shop (with no prices on any items), about two takeaway places and juice bars (mmm the juice was good) and the highly rated Jasmin. There is a boat area just in front of the Sea Village and another one in front of the Zeavola. You can easily arrange for a longtail boat to take you on tours. You can read about our tour by longtail here. […]

      Hi there! Thanks so much for the comment. I was surprised to see that I didn’t include the cost of the actual tour – oops!! Well, lucky for me, I kept a notebook. I was there roughly 2 years ago now. The price for this 6 hour tour for 2 people was 2200 Thai Baht (note that it was from Laemtong on Phi Phi Island). It was a private tour (so you could decide where to go & how long to stay) & there were only 2 people on the boat (excluding the Guide Marwin). It did not include the conservation fee for entry into Maya Bay (400 Thai Baht for the two of us).So in the end it actually costed 1300 Thai Baht per person. This article gives more info on the Phi Phi National Marine Park Fee https://www.phuketdivetours.com/phi-phi-national-park-fees/ . Hope you find this helpful and do let me know what the 2017 / 2018 prices are. Rif
