Learn & explore on this PADI Discover scuba diving experience in the Phi Phi Islands.
Discover the world beneath the sea on this PADI Discover scuba experience in the Phi Phi Islands! An ideal introduction to the world of scuba diving, this fun and informative diving day out will give you a taste of what it’s like to explore world-class dive sites like Phi Phi Ley and Bida Noi – under the supervision of a professional diving instructor!
This activity takes place on Phi Phi Island in Thailand – home to world-class dive sites like Phi Phi Ley and Bida Nay/Bida Nog. The island is surrounded by a national marine park and dive sites are characterized by rugged, coral adorned limestone walls.
Meet your divemaster at the activity base at 7.00 am on Koh Phi Phi for this PADI Discover scuba diving experience. Whilst this isn’t a scuba diving course, it acts as a fun and informative introduction to diving, allowing you to experience breathing with a tank, weights and respirator whilst discovering some of the area’s best marine areas. Starting with a short safety briefing and kit breakdown, your instructor will explain the essential information you’ll need to safely dive to a maximum depth of 12m. Heading out onto the dive boat, your day will be organised into two dives – the first to put your new skills into practice and, after lunch a second discovery dive where you can build on your water confidence and start exploring the local marine life. After the activity, you will be back at the meeting point around 1:30 pm.
Phi Phi Ley
Bida Nai/Bida Nog (10-20m): Two dive sites renowned for Manta Ray and Whale Shark sightings, there are many Gorgonian Sea Fans, Soft Corals, colourful Parrotfish and Wrasse, along with large shoals of Moorish Idols, seem to be at all depths. The higher ledges have numerous Sea Anemones well populated by Clownfish.
Suitable for beginners from 10 years old, this activity includes two boat dives at local sites around Koh Phi Phi to a depth of 12m. Minimal currents, clear visibility and colourful marine life make it one of the best dive locations in the Gulf of Thailand, and one of the best sites for whale shark sightings (March – April).
