Phi Phi Islands & Shark Point Diving

Phi Phi Islands & Shark Point Diving

Phi Phi Islands Diving – Sharks, Turtles & Sea Horses

The Phi Phi Islands are an incredible diving experience. In the first 5 minutes of your dive at Koh Bida Nok, you’re likely to be able to tick blacktip reef sharks off your list. It won’t be just one, you could be swimming with a dozen or more! Sharks from half metre babies up to the 2m long adults patrol the shallows of the sheltered bay where we make the first drop. A great start to the day.

Then it’s off to’Turtle Rock‘ which is home to hungry Hawksbills. Many of them very unperturbed by divers so they make for great muses for photographers and videographers. Phi Phi also plays host to schooling Big Eye Snappers, Golden Trevally, Harlequin Shrimp and some Nudibranch life like the Stricklandi & Halgerda families. It truly is a wonderful diving experience for all levels of certified divers!

An Awesome Stop On The Way back

On the return journey from Phi Phi to Phuket, we stop at either Shark Point or Anemone Reef. Both sites are famous for Tiger Tail Seahorse and have regular Leopard Shark appearances. Both sites also attract Whale Sharks, this season we have had many amazing experiences with these gentle giants on both pinnacles. If you are a Macro fan, Anemone Reef is an explorers paradise as the fine sand surrounding it attracts the rare and exotic, the pinnacle itself is alive with Anemones and a busy home for Tiger Tail Seahorses!

Phi Phi Islands, Shark Point Tour Itinerary

Our dive tours to Phi Phi Island & Shark Point, usually see us doing the first two dives at Phi Phi. The final dive of the day at Shark Point or Anemone Reef. Organising the dives this way is extremely good for courses or new or returning divers as it allows you to get back in the water on shallow, easy dive sites like Koh Bida Nok. Shark Point and Anemone Reef can be a little bit more demanding so they’re generally the final dive.

Not had enough? Then visit our more in depth Phuket diving site section to get a real feel of what you might see.

Combine with our other tours for a great 3 day package.

Racha Yai

Racha Yai is not the place to go if you're looking for stunning coral reefs, although the hard coral gardens in the shallow water are incredibly pretty. To replace the coral damage from the bleaching event that occurred in 2010 the Thai government has placed a whole heap of artificial reef structures to attract marine life and take the pressure off the remaining corals. This is where most of the structures lie, there's 5 small wrecks and [...]

Understanding ISO Underwater

What ISO stands isn't going to give you much of a clue as to what it does. ISO simply stands for International Standardisation Organisation, nothing much to pick from that. Back in the 70's two film standards (ASA & DIN) combined to make a standard measure for film sensitivity. Modern digital manufacturers have kept to the same measurements to maintain similar brightness levels as film. Essentially ISO tells your camera how bright the photo s [...]
