Ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi
Boats depart from Phuket Town to Tonsai Bay in the morning and afternoon. Schedules can change and you are advised to check at a travel agent - tickets for the various ferries can be purchased at any travel agent in Phuket and it is advisable to book the day before - transfer from hotels is normally included in the price, so it's not worth the bother of making your own way to the pier and buying on the day (they may be full anyway!) Return tickets can be used for any date.
A Few Notes about the Phuket - Phi Phi Ferries
There are many different ferry companies and prices do vary according to boat speed and comfort. Some ferries run direct to Tonsai Bay, while others take a detour for 30 minutes of sightseeing around Phi Phi Ley - which can either be a bonus or a waste of time according to your needs!

Ferry from Krabi to Phi Phi
Boats depart from Krabi or Ao Nang twice daily - again, you should book in advance at a travel agent. Trips take about 90 minutes to Tonsai Bay. You can get an onward ferry to Phuket, although from Krabi - Phuket a minibus is faster.
Travel to / from Phuket International Airport
The last ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi departs at about 1:30pm, so you must allow time to get a taxi from the airport to the boat dock. Allow around 1 hour from the airport to the ferry terminal. If you are flying out of Phuket, you can get a morning ferry which will arrive in Phuket at around 9:30 - 10:30am depending which boat you book. If you have a morning flight you will need to stay in Phuket the night before.
