Palong Bay North – Phi Phi Ley – Black Tip Reef Shark Heaven

Also starting from Palong Bay but this time heading north. Again there is a plateau, this time a little deeper than the south. This plateau can get to depths of 10 metres before the reef descends to between 16 – 18 metres. Normally there is no to little current and if there is some it usually pushes to the north.

Much the same as the southern run with many hard corals and rock. This sight has a lot more barren patches of sand throughout the dive.

This scuba diving site is well know for it’s temperamental black tip reef sharks who on a good day there can be as many as 50 and just a few days later they cannot be found. They are definitely a highlight for any level of scuba diver and a headache for most day trip tour leaders in the area. It is always a risky dive site, with the sharks there it makes for a great site, no sharks and it is average at best.

There are a few of the common reef fish there, look out for the Razor (shrimp) fish that are often there. Turtles and cuttlefish are commonly found also. Well worth the effort when the sharks are around.

Depth: 5-20m Difficulty: ✩ Marine life: ✩ Coral: ✩✩ Currents: ✩✩

Getting There

Dive boats go to Phi Phi every day of the week as a part of a 3-dive combo with Shark Point. 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.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloa [...]

What is the Underwater Visibility Like in Phuket?

A question that we often get asked here is “Is the visibility good?” Good visibility and bad visibility is a subjective thing and people when commenting should be giving an example of what level of visibility they are comparing it too or with. For example, a diver that regularly dives in lake or quarries and they compare to that, may think the visibility is good. Those that regularly dive in deep waters may think that that the visibility is poor. We regularly have divers from both spectrums and then can arrive back from the same dive trip and one saying the visibility is good and the other saying it is not good. There are a [...]
