Koh Phi Phi Diving Guide
For over twenty years, scuba divers have come from all over the world to experience diving here. Koh Phi Phi is famous for its variety of marine life including sharks and turtles, rare macro species and everything else in between.
We were back to Phi Phi diving after 2.5 years of completing the Open Water course. We did a Scuba Refresher and staff were very thorough and yet fun. This time round we saw Bida Nok and Viking Cave at Phi Phi Ley. We really like this dive shop because in our experience they always operate in small groups which makes us feel safer and makes the whole process way more relaxed and enjoyable.anissimovk Leeds, United Kingdom . 3Reviewed 2 weeks ago
Join our local dive trips for many days as we have many local dive sites around Phi Phi Ley and Bida Islands. They are all a little bit different. On the West Side we have Malong and Maya Corner with cool swim throughs and a healthy population of hawksbill turtles. At Palong Bay side you are almost certain to see black tip reef sharks!
East Side of Phi Phi Ley are two walls outside Pileh Lagoon which are covered with beautiful soft corals. At Viking Bay there is an artificial reef and coral nursery, which is attracting more and more life every year since it was constructed in 2006.
The diverse marine life here is preserved in part due to the conservation efforts practiced by the Dive Schools here. There is a standardised price system for all diving activities. This allows us to maintain high standards in teaching, safety and quality equipment. It promotes a sense of co-operation between dive centres, especially in regards to conservation.
Prices charged are fully inclusive of equipment, scuba tanks, weights, lunch, water, fruit & Divemaster/Instructor guide fees. National Park fees are additional and charged at the pier each day.
Your Day with us
Sample schedule for a day with Blue View Divers
7.30am – 8am – Divers meet for coffee and briefing.
12pm – 12.30pm – Meet time for afternoon trips
8.30am/1pm – Boat Departure! We aim to miss the crowds by getting to the sites when other divers are surfacing. We often get the dive sites to ourselves which means more fish and less divers!
Dive 1 – Bida Islands or Phi Phi Leh dive sites
Lunch – During the surface interval, lunch and fresh fruit in a beautiful bay or beach. Dive staff take time to collect some rubbish in an effort to reduce waste collecting in the sea and surrounding beaches
Join in or relax and snorkel before we begin briefing your second dive
Dive 2 – Phi Phi Ley has many sites, all a little different. If you see turtles on your first dive we will take you to a good place to spot sharks second, and vice versa!
We dive the best sites that we can access each day. Please note that in low season we do not have full access to the Marine Park due to weather and conditions
1.00pm – Morning trips return to the pier in time for the last ferry departures to Phuket, Krabi, Koh Lanta and Railay. For Ferry Schedules please click here
5.30pm – 6pm – Afternoon trips return to the pier
All divers are invited to log with us in the evening at the dive school
Phi Phi Dive Boats
To begin, we mostly dive off our custom built long-tail boats. However, for specialty trips to Hin Daeng/Hin Muang we will charter a speedboat as these sites are quite far outside of the marine park. During low season months we may some days dive off bigger Phi Phi dive boats, additionally if we visit the King Cruiser Trip.
Whether you are snorkeling or diving you will not be disappointed. First of all, it is always best to go diving with an experienced guide who knows the sites and can introduce you to Phi Phi’s amazing marine life. Snorkeling is a much better experience if you have a guide who is familiar with local reefs and increase your chance to see sharks, turtles and corals.
