Phi Phi Island, Thailand - Party Island or Secret Diving Hot Spot?
Have you ever been to Phi Phi? White Sandy Beaches, Limestone Cliffs, Turquoise Blue Water, Parties and did you know… the most Beautiful Diving?
When people think about Scuba Diving in Thailand they often think of Koh Tao or Similan Islands, Phi Phi Island is often overlooked.
However, this Gem in the Andaman Sea, is a Diving Paradise, for both Certified Scuba Divers and for people trying for the first time.
If you look in an Indian Ocean Reef Guidebook, we estimate you will find 80% here in Phi Phi Island, From Sharks, Rays and Turtles to Ghost Pipe Fish, Beautiful Nudibranch’s, Shrimps not to mention huge Schools of Snappers, Barracudas and Fusiliers. Last week we even had Minke Whales and Whalesharks!
Visibility Is often 15 metres plus, sometimes 30 metres and we don’t have any very strong currents at all. Most of the diving here is on beautiful healthy coral reefs and we also have a fantastic Wreck, which has SOOO much life on it, sometimes you have to squint through the fish to see the Wreck!
Phi Phi Island itself has a wonderful vibe, it’s all walking streets with no scooters or cars and has some wonderful restaurants, both local and international. Yes, there’s the Party scene on the back side of the island, with beach bars and fire shows, but Phi Phi has so so much more to offer as well, from Long Tail Trips around Phi Ley Lagoon and the famous Maya Bay to Jungle Walks, Viewpoints and much more!
At PKT Diving we are a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, every day we conduct many courses across the PADI Curriculum – From PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water to Rescue Diver and cool Speciality Courses, like Wreck, Deep and Nitrox! Plus a fantastic Divemaster Course and PADI Instructor Deveopment Course.
If you are serious about Diving or want to try for the first time, while living the beautiful Island life for a while - We strongly urge, you come and experience everything Phi Phi Island has to offer, both on land and underwater!
To reach Phi Phi Island, it's a 1 hour speedboat or 2 hour ferry from Krabi or Phuket, we dive every day morning and afternoon and start courses every day.
