PHI PHI ISLANDS

Located in Phang-Nga bay about 45km east of Phuket and 30km south west of Krabi, two breathtaking limestone islands make up Koh Phi Phi; the largest island of Phi Phi Don being a few kilometres north of Phi Phi Lae.

Limestone cliffs rise vertically into the sky, where the trees take over. There are many beaches, coves, and bays which make for dramatic scenery to enjoy surface intervals during your liveaboard vacation in Thailand.

There are many, many dive sites around the Phi Phi island group, many consisting of wall dives, the limestone dropping to depth ranges between 10m and 25m.

The walls can have gorgonian fans, soft corals and coral bushes and interesting rock formations and swim throughs. At the base of these walls there are often hard coral gardens to explore. You can expect a great amount of fish life, including lionfish, wrasse, moorish idols, angelfish, rays, trevallies. Also keep an eye out for leopard sharks sleeping on the sandy bottoms or blacktip reef sharks cruising the reefs. Turtles can also quite commonly be seen here.

Lastly do check the fans and bushes for tigertail seahorses and harlequin ghost pipefish.

KING CRUISER

The King Cruiser was an ex-car ferry that used to travel between Phi Phi and Phuket. In 1997, however, ‘the cruiser’ hit Anemone Reef on her crossing and sank a short distance away. Luckily, no lives were lost, and divers were left with a great wreck to dive!

While the King Cruiser is largely now broken up, she is covered with soft corals and hides some wonderful gems as well as being home to several large schools of snapper. While currents can be strong and visibility less than perfect, this is a great site to dive as part of an advanced open water course.

SHARK POINT

A series of 7 pinnacles running north to south almost exactly half way between Phuket and Phi Phi, these pinnacles are are covered with red, pink and purple soft corals, large sea fans and anemones with a variety of fish to suit all divers. From barracuda to seahorses and for the lucky ones of course, the iconic leopard shark!

KOH DOC MAI

‘Flower Island’ is a tiny piece of sheer rock sat between Shark Point and Phuket but, although it is tiny, dives here can provide divers with amazing memories!

From a spacious cavern to frogfish, ornate ghost pipefish and even bamboo sharks, Koh Doc Mai never fails to surprise.
