Wall Dive

A fantastic wall dive littered with macro marine life. On it’s day it can be one of the best dives in the area although on occasions it can be hampered by strong currents. If you love your macro life and exploring then this is your site. It is best done at a slow pace as not to miss any of the small creatures lurking in the many cracks and crevices. Often only one side of the island is dived during the standard 50 minute dive.

For divers with some experience the marine life begins as soon as you enter the water and is thick all the way to the bottom of the wall at around 25 metres. Has two small caves at 13m and 18m.

Plenty of Small Stuff

There are plenty of small eels and shrimp on this site and the best site to find a nice range of Nudibranchs and can be a underwater photographers dream site. Keep an eye out for the many Bamboo sharks that live on this site. It may pay to turn around occasionally as the famous Whale Sharks have been known to cruise by on rare instances.

She is regually done as a day trip and often in conjunction with the Phi Phi Islands, Shark Point, Anemone Reef and the King Cruiser Wreck.

Getting There

Dive boats go here every day of the week as a part of a 3-dive combo with Shark Point and King Cruiser. Shark Point can be substituted with Anemone Reef depending on the currents and weather conditions.

All scuba diving dive sites are at the discretion of the tour leader on the day. Dive sites are selected based on the weather conditions, currents, safety and suitability to majority of divers on the boat. We cannot guarantee specific dive sites prior to the boat departing.

Day Trip Diving In Thailand

When scuba diving in Phuket you'll be embarking on what is referred to as 'Day Trip Scuba Diving', day trips will take you to one or many of the Islands around Phuket that house our outstanding reefs & wrecks. Because these Islands are typically one to two hours from the mainland by boat it works out much better if you do multiple dives while you are out there. Day trip diving here in Thailand will usually see you doing two or three dives per day, which is awesome because you get to see a multitude of different dive sites, marine life and scenery for a relatively low price, plus we get you back home in time for dinner.

Day trip diving is suitable for divers of all levels, whether experienced, new, or total beginners, including Discover Scuba Divers, we have many options for day trip divers, including Phi Phi Island, Racha Noi & Racha Yai and the King Cruiser Wreck. Basically it is just a matter of deciding which day trip and dive sites best suit your level of diving comfort and then contact Aussie Divers to book it.
