The best diving on Phi Phi is a subjective idea as what works for one person doesn’t always work for the next. I have written an article starting below that goes through the best points of diving on Phi Phi and lets you choose which ideas best suite your style.

From a smiling and an easy-going dive buddy to the best weather, from the minutiae like a sea-horse or nudibranch to the ever so impressive Whale shark this article runs through what you might expect.

Phi Phi has a wreck dive, a shark point dives, deep dives, cave dives and over 20 km of reef.

Diving on Phi Phi is one of the best places to dive in Thailand as the dive village is compact, the specialized dive pier is efficient and most importantly , the diving starts just 5 minutes from that pier.

There are places in Thailand that have better diving like the Similans but these are very remote and require liveaboards or long speedboat trips so for excellent and convenient diving I would say that Phi phi Island is the best.

It article starts; ‘The best diving on Phi Phi is on a day with strong sun, excellent visibility, good friends, good companions on the dive trip, a good dive boat and the luck to see something you haven’t seen before. On top of that you can choose from one of Phi Phi Island’s best dive sites and you can experience a top class adventure.’ To read the rest, click Best diving on Phi Phi

Koh Phi Phi sharks

Koh Phi Phi sharks whale sharks

Koh Phi Phi sharks whale sharks

Koh Phi Phi sharks are at the top of the food chain… or are they? Certainly the black tip reef shark is a traditional predator eating mullet and squid. But what about the Whale shark eating plankton and the Leopard eating crustacians and what not. I’m not any kind of biologist but plankton and crabs dont sound like the massive killer predator that so many fear.

Koh Phi Phi sharks are harmless but are an impressive sight. The Black tip reef shark skims over the shallows darting this way and that in search of his morning meal. The whale shark glides majestically through the oceans deep, their size dwarfing any diver encounter. Finally the  leopard shark sits on the sandy bottom defying all other marine life with it’s powerful body and size.

There are many shark experiences and adventures to be had on Phi Phi and the article outlines where to go and when. Check it out…..

Koh Phi Phi sharks are a big draw to anyone interested in diving, snorkeling or swimming the sea or coral reefs. They are also the stuff of fear and phobias so the whale shark, leopard shark and black tip reef shark stir the imagination of many who come to the islands.
