Scuba Diving day trips to Phi Phi from Phuket

Phi Phi is a very popular spot to visit for scuba diving day trips from Phuket.  

Phi Phi consists of 2 main Islands, Phi Phi Ley and Phi Phi Don and 2 smaller Islands, Bida Nok and Bida Nai.  The best diving is on the west coast of Phi Phi Ley and the Bida Islands.

Scuba Diving Daytrip Phi Phi Green Turtle

The Phi Phi Islands are famous for the variety of marine life to be found whilst diving, this can include turtles, blacktip sharks, leopard sharks and large shoals of reef fish.

A typical daytrip from Phuket would normally include one of the Bida Islands, either Turtle Rock or Palong Wall and on the way back one of either Shark Point, Anemone Reef or Koh Doc Mai.

Phi Phi daytrip Blacktip Shark

Bida Nok and Bida Nai are two small uninhabited Islands to the south of Phi Phi, they are suitable for any level of diver, particularly Bida Nok, which has a deep vertical wall to the north and a very shallow quiet bay to the south, ideal for beginners.

Palong Wall and Turtle Rock are on Phi Phi Ley, just north of the infamous Maya Bay, featured in the movie “The Beach”.  Palong Wall is a very shallow wall with a plateau at about 6-8m where blacktip sharks love to swim, on a good day you can spot many blacktips here, going deeper it is possible to find leopard sharks and on both Turtle Rock and Palong Wall there are a number of turtles.

Phi Phi can be dived almost any day of the week, to book contact Merlin Divers
