Racha Noi – South Tip

Quite honestly we wish we could get here every trip but the converging currents from either side of Racha Noi make the South Tip a challenging dive even on weak tides. Only once or twice a month the current is low enough for us to get there but it's a real treat when we can, even the guides are queuing up for this trip! The dive site consists of a series of huge granite boulders that have been washed smooth by the strong currents, corals have a hard time establishing colonies in these conditions so you won't find too much here apart from in a few sheltered areas but that's not really what we come here for.... The site is the only manta cleaning station for miles around so any giant ma [...]

King Cruiser, Shark Point & Koh Doc Mai – Dive Tour

If you have not been diving on the King Cruiser you are missing out on diving one of the most easily accessible and truly alive wrecks in Thailand and by far the largest wreck we have here. There is also no chance of missing the wreck as we have a mooring line attached to it allowing divers to descend easily even in strong currents and a great way to do your safety stops. The Cruiser is 86 Meters long and some days it's hard to see it because the swarming snapper, barracuda and other schooling fish life. Massive Mangrove Snapper and Grouper hide out in the wreckage and Nuidbranch like Doriprismatica Atromarginata cover the wreck. Beyond the King Cruiser we have Shark Point, 3 unde [...]

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 [...]
