Best way to get back to Krabi in this weather

Hey! Just wondering if anyone knows of any other possible way of getting out of Phi Phi and back to Krabi that is not a ferry or speedboat? We arrived today on the ferry and our entire boat was throwing up and I just don’t think we can endure that again. We leave on Thursday so I am assuming the weather will still be the same. Any suggestions? Literally will do anything to avoid that trip again

It's amazing how people forget about their own responsibility. Since days I am warning and give advisories about the current very bad weather situation and still people dare to board a vessel and head for Phi Phi ! Unbelievable !

The only way on and off the island is by boat

Hopefully the weather calms down soon for you, and you don't have an urgent flight to catch

Are you in Tonsai now ?, how busy is the island currently ?

Thank you! I thought so. Just wanted to check as that was a pretty traumatic ferry ride! Have you been on a speed boat before? Is that as bumpy?

Yes still on the island.. it has not been too busy on the streets as the weather has not been great. Lots of rain tonight so did not see many people out and about.

I only get the large ferrys to Phi Phi, I avoid speedboats as much as possible, unless they are the only option

I usually go to Phi Phi in Jan/Feb when the weather is great, have been a couple of times in May when its been good as well. Saying that, my visit this year in Jan 2018 was the 1st time its ever rained in 8 stays on the island.

At this time of year, the weather is not great and unpredictable as well. Next week, it will probably be lovely

Hope you get some good weather soon

There used to be a submarine but it was discontinued a few years ago. Doubt it could get to Phuket though.

Sorry to hear about the weather but ferry seems to be your best option unless you have serious cash to allow you to rent a helicopter.

Read this morning, seas and chance of flooding in some areas is high possibility... 3 to 4 meter waves in the west coast areas ... Good luck.
