Book your 3 Dive Day Trip to Phi Phi & Shark Point

A very common scuba diving and snorkeling site for the day trips from Phuket.

It is best known for the turtles that reside there. It is rare that you do a scuba dive there and not see at least one turtle. Normally it is common to see two or three and reports have been made to have seen six. Leopard Sharks can also frequent this stretch as well, most commonly they are seen swimming rather than their normal resting on the sandy bottom.

There a plateau that runs almost the full length of this dive which rarely gets deeper than 5-6 metres and makes for a good site for beginner divers and those learning to scuba dive. The reef runs down to between 14 -16 metres and is mostly made up of hard corals and rocks.

The usual reef fish are common and often octopus and cuttlefish are seen there.

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.

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.
