In all honesty, I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the climbing at Koh Phi Phi, having just come from Railay Bay which is more well-known for climbing. But I was pleasantly... read more

We went to Phi Phi a few days ago hoping to climb with Deaf Gecko. Spent 1 1/2 hours looking for it. Finally someone in the know told us they have moved to Australia. So, we went with Ibex climbing in the center of the town near the pier. Had a great experience with them and they confirmed that Deaf... More

Just finished climbing with Deaf Gecko today. Both of us beginners. Jude and her friend Jonas were fantastic - great attitude, encouraging, helpful, patient, and safety-concious climbing instructors. Made us feel really welcome and contributed hugely to how much we enjoyed our day! Equipment seems top-notch and appropriate to the limestone cliffs of Phi Phi (everything provided, including insurance). Beautiful... More

If you're heading to Phi Phi, you have to make Deaf Gecko a stop! Climbing on Tonsai Tower is wonderful in the late afternoon and gets you away from the crowds. I did deep water soloing the next day, and it was a blast. Great people, great atmosphere, and fun cliff jumping! The people that run this joint, Judy and... More
