There are many dive sites at Phi Phi but we have listed the 3 most popular
Koh Bida Nok:
It translates as outside island and is one of 6 islands that make up the Phi Phi islands national park. It is the last island south in the group. Black tip reef sharks often patrol the depths of the southern side of the island. There are also a couple of resident Hawks-bill turtles that leisurely cruise along the reefs, grazing for their favorite treats. Leopard Sharks are also quite common here. For divers that have good air conservation, there is usually time to make it all the way around this small island, but often times it’s easy to get fascinated with something along the way, and use a bit more time and air observing them. Lots to see here. Every so often massive schools of snapper, and the usual suspects that feed on them are in full force. There are sea fans, and sea whips, and you can find beds of swaying garden eels here too. You can occasionally spot a common reef octopus, but only if you have sharp eyes, because no creature is better at disguise than she.
Depth: 10-30m, visibility: 10m-20m – It is suitable for beginners to advanced divers, mild to strong current
Koh Bida Nai:
The sister island of Koh Bida Nok offers a slightly different experience. It has a very similar topography with a few notable exceptions, there is a large Staghorn Reef known locally as Fantasea Reef, Leopard Sharks can still be found resting on the sandy areas between the coral and Black Tip Reef Sharks regularly cruise by. Sea Snakes, Great Barracuda and Trevally also frequent this area. On the West side around 18m there is a small photogenic swim through which sometimes houses Ribbon Eels and if you’re lucky you may run into a small school of Chevron Barracuda or find Bamboo Sharks tucked away under the coral.
Depth: 10-30m, visibility: 10m-20m – It is suitable for beginners to advanced divers, there is a mild to strong current
Located on the West side of Phi Phi Lei this very popular dive site’s main attraction is the large number of Black Tip Reef Sharks that inhabit the shallow rocky section, Occasionally, up to 20 sharks of all different sizes can be seen on a single dive! But that’s not the only feature of this site. The reef reaches the sandy sea bed at about 18 meters and Leopard Sharks, Turtles and various species of Nudibranch can be found here. A small rocky pinnacle at the North end of this dive site attracts schools of Batfish and Chevron Barracuda, and is another good bet to find Leopard Sharks and Kuhl’s Stingrays. Most of the dive is spent at the shallower depths to look for the Sharks, but with a bit of luck, you can often see Cuttlefish, Reef Squid and the ornately patterned Clown Triggerfish here as well.
Depth: 5-18m, visibility: 10m- 20m – It is suitable for beginners, there is little to no current
