Feed the Sharks
The most exciting private tour you could take is the favoured trip to see the sharks. Starting from Ko Phi Phi early morning, we had breakfast onboard while watching the crystal waters below us; it was not long before we were surrounded by sharks. After initial nervousness, we were soon feeding a variety of leopard sharks. Returning we stopped to snorkel and had a bonus of seeing some black tipped reef sharks
