Phi Phi Island consist of more than 25 dive sites, suitable for beginners and experienced scuba divers. Here you'll also have the best chances to swim with turtles and black-tip reef sharks.
The stunning view of the majestic limestone rocks, plunging into the clear water is an experience itself and the astonishing nature opens up and continues under the surface. Here you'll find some of Thailand's best dive sites, like the two small and world-famous islands of Bida Nok & Bida Nai. Or what about visiting Palong and Maya bay, known from the block-buster movie "The Beach" with Leonardo De Caprio? Here you'll also have the best chances to swim with turtles and black-tip reef sharks. On your dive trip to Phi Phi islands you will experience shallow reefs, dramatic walls and pinnacles and coral fields with more life than you can imagine. Scuba diving at Phi Phi Islands can be done all year around (many divers do!) and is both varied and spectacular.
The PADI Open Water Diver Course is your licence to the amazing underwater world.
The course is set over 3 days with 4 tropical coral reef dives. Once you have completed your open water course you will be able to dive Anywhere in the World for the rest of your life to a maximum of 18 meters.
From your first breath underwater you will be hooked on diving and the underwater environment.

Yesterday a Cuvier's Beaked Whale otherwise known as a Goose-Beaked Whale washed up ashore in Phuket. Luckily the whale was uninjured and in good health.
After a few hours the whale was pulled through the strong surf and too deeper water where it dove back to the safer deeper water.
The whale was around 3 meters long – about half the size they grow to which is around 5- 7 meters.
These whales are rarely seen in shallow waters as they predominately live in waters 1,000m or more. They are the deepest diving mammal – with depths reached up to 2,992 meters / 9,816 feet and astonishing breath holding as they have been reordered diving for over 2 hours making this the longest dives documented for any mammal.
There is an estimated 100,000 + Beaked whales in the world.
Lets hope that this one does not wash up again and stays down in the safer deep waters.
