Ko Phi Phi Dive Sites – Suitable for scuba divers of all levels.


Ko Phi Phi at a GlanceWith year round diving to rival the Similans, Phi Phi’s 30+ dive sites are great for beginners and experienced divers alike.

Located about 22 km west of Ko Lanta, the Phi Phi Islands comprise Phi Phi Don, Phi Phi Ley, Ko Yung (Mosquito Island) and Ko Mai Pai (Bamboo Island) and offer consistently good diving, year round.

Phi Phi is best known for its fabulous Sea Fans and as home of the Leopard Shark. We make trips to Ko Phi Phi on Tuesdays throughout the high season on board MV Ja Ru Pat.

Underwater, the scenery only becomes more breathtaking.

With long caves, dramatic overhangs, walls that go down to 30 m, swim-throughs, submerged pinnacles and a fabulous display of hard and soft coral, the diving around Phi Phi is varied and spectacular. You can dive the dive sites of Phi Phi day after day and continue to see new things on each new dive you make.

Common LionfishPhi Phi tends not to have such consistently good visibility as Ko Haa, but the top dive sites; Bidah Nai, Bidah Nok and Hin Bidah are home to such a concentration of marine and coral life that divers tend not to even notice!

There’s so much to see on the reefs at Ko Phi Phi and the coral is so dense and rugged that it’s sometimes hard to know where to look.

We don’t encourage snorkellers to join the Phi Phi trips, as the dive sites are not so well suited to snorkelling as Ko Haa and Ko Rok.

Leopard Sharks Swimming at Ko Phi Phi Dive SitesPhi Phi is best known as home of the Leopard Shark. These docile, nocturnal creatures are normally found lying on the sand facing into the current; they are one of only four species of shark that doesn’t need to keep swimming in order to breathe. They like to eat crustaceans, small fish and sea snakes.

Surprisingly little else is known about the species, although they are believed to be closely related to the Whale Shark.

Giant Gorgonian Sea Fan Ko Phi PhiLeoaprd Sharks can grow up to 3.5 meters in length and are completely harmless to humans. Other marine life is plentiful and varied. Ko Phi Phi is one of the most diverse dive sites in the area.

Most of the fish and coral species that are found in the Similans can also be found around Phi Phi.

Even the elusive Whale Shark is spotted several times a year – most often at Bidah Nok.
