“Great Night Plankton Tour”

Spidermonkey Climbing
Reviewed 16 June 2016

My friends and I decided on trying the Plankton Tour and it was great. We got to do a lot of snorkeling and seeing different sights around Ko Phi Phi Leh. The guides were not super professional but they got the job done. Ending the 5 hour tour with swimming with Plankton was definitely worth it.

Their website advertises a night plankton tour. Which we booked.

The morning of the tour, I got an email with instructions to get on the "Orange Sunset Tour boat and tell them you booked through spider monkey"
When we got there, they knew nothing about us booking through spider monkey and there was a bunch of confusion.

After pulling away from the dock, we realized that we were not getting the night plankton tour we booked, we were on a sunset tour, which were a dime a dozen down there. We searched specifically for the plankton tour. We were very disappointed and by the time we realized we'd been had, it was too late.

Not being climbers, our family of 5 did the Night Plankton boat tour with Spidermonkey. We had an amazing time. The sights were amazingly beautiful and our guide Whitney was awesome. What a great way to spend 5 hours in the Phi Phi Islands.

The views are fantastic, and climbing is always fun, But Spidermonkey didn't live up to its reviews.

The directions they provided us were wrong, which made us over 30 minutes late. No big deal. But the guide took the company's mistake out on us by acting rude, telling us "don't talk ok" when we asked a question, and generally giving us dirty looks.

When we got to the rock wall, I noticed that one of the climbing shoes I got from them had a hole in the toe (not ideal since you use mostly that part of the shoe while climbing). I asked the guide if there was another pair of shoes available. He curtly told me none were available and that I should have inspected them more closely back at the shop.

After climbing for an hour or so, they started treating us more normally and we got a few good climbs in.

The climbs were all easy (nothing over a 5.8), so not challenging if you have experience but good for beginners.

All in all, can't recommend this place. There's surely a more friendly company in ko phi phi (or better yet, go to Railay Beach, the climbing is way better and so were our guides!).

A friend and i were in the south for climbing for a month last year (i finally go around to downloading this app). We decided to deep water solo on phi phi. We talked to one guide service that was cheaper than Spider Monkey but they ran a lot of different tours and the guides could not answer basic climbing questions. We decided to go with Spider Monkey because Book was really knowledgable and involved in the rebolting effort. We had a totally awesome day. Book is very knowledgable and safety conscious. He really loves climbing and that is not the feeling we got from the other guide service we talked to. It was for sure one of the big highlights of our trip. Sorry for the late review Book (do you read these?) but better late than never.
