Our Hi season (December – April ) Phi Phi Scuba diving day trips is for certified licensed divers takes you to the best dive sites that we can offer you, You will meet your experienced PADI & SSI instructor or dive guide the moment you step out of the minivan, with a formal boat briefing and introduction by the Boat Tour leader on boat safety and general practices we will set off to Phi Phi Island.
Diving at Phi Phi Island from Phuket is best between December – April.
Get to Phi Phi in style: we use large comfortable modern safe dive boats built for your safety and comfort that serve freshly cooked food on the boat and are large enough for you to stretch your legs, sunbathe, and sleep while visiting the best Phi Phi dive sites.The diving boat we use will offer you shaded cool areas and protect you from the wind rain and extremely hot sun making you day trip relaxed.
Sorry we don’t use speedboats adapted for diving that have one marine toilet, speed boats offer little room to sit or move around and stretch your legs or even sleep being unable to relax between dives, speedboats have extremely noisy engines making divers irritable and nauseous from the smell of exhaust gases and petroleum fumes before you get to the dive sites, sitting in a bouncy speedboat for hours in wind rain and hot weather without shelter is simply no Fun!
Please note that in low season between April – November due to the westerly monsoon the main Phi Phi dive sites are often inaccessible meaning boats may not be able to access the premier dive sites alternative sites are normally Viking Cave.
May to November trips please call to check weather & availability prior to booking.
Watch our Phi Phi diving video to get some ideas of the marine life you may encounter with Phuket Dive Tours on this 3 dive trip.

Shark Point is justifiably one of the best dive sites in phuket, a premier dive sites hence there will always numerous divers or boats on the site. Shark point dive site consist of 3 main reefs or pinnacles (1) the main site is identified by a small rock on the surface with a cross to warn off local boat traffic. The site named after the local leopard sharks that sometimes visit the location. It can best be described as a line of remote limestone pinnacle running North to South. This is normally the last dive of the day trip and offers some fantastic underwater marine life. Shark Point pinnacles reefs consist of small to medium boulders clustered around several large rocks covered in zig zag oysters, barnacles, sea whips sea fans, and soft corals. Shark Point Pinnacles are isolated by sandy bottoms covered with slipper and mushroom corals. At the top of the Pinnacles look out for Shrimps, Nudibranch, and Frog Fish.
