Certified divers and fun divers in the water with Local Dive Thailand guides

Fun Diving With Local Dive Thailand

When we say certified divers or fun diving, we are simply referring to any dive that is not a training or certification dive. So a certified PADI Open Water diver who books a Phi Phi Island day trip tour with Local Dive Thailand, is a fun diver and on one of our day trip diving tours can do up to 3 fun dives that day, in this case it would be 2 at Phi Phi and one on the return journey home at Shark Point or Anemone Reef, depending on conditions. So if you are already a certified diver, PADI, SSI, TDI or other agency, you are welcome and encouraged to come fun diving with Local Dive Thailand on one, or all of our scuba [...]

Liveaboard diving simply refers to large Marine Vessels, or Yachts that you live onboard, for multiple days of diving. Each Liveaboard tour or holiday is different and the number of days on board or the number of dives possible changes per trip, but one thing always remains constant, breathtaking diving.

Yellow Snapper At Phi Phi Amazing Local Dives

A Great Days Diving At Phi Phi And Shark Point

Grey skies and a humid atmosphere greeted us as we boarded our dive boat in Chalong but thankfully there was no wind or waves on the way to Phi Phi and a comfortable journey ensued with the hope of better conditions under the waves than we had above. We weren't to be disappointed, visibility in the bay at Koh Bida Nok was excellent and a quick swim up into the shallows brought a brief glimpse of a couple of blacktip reef sharks cruising around in less than 3m of water. Heading deeper we found a hawksbill turtle munching away on bubble corals and we've yet to reach 5m depth or 5 minutes into the dive! The 'finger' on the west side of the bay was blanketed with a large school of [...]

I'm sure you're aware that they have a symbiotic relationship with anemone's but this doesn't come as easy to the clownfish as you might think. The fish don't hatch with an immunity to the stinging cells of the anemone, when they find their chosen host the juvenile clownfish have to touch it gently with various parts of their body until they eventually get covered with a layer o [...]
