Green Island

Green Island

Green Island is a small rarely dived island that is due south of Shark Point and about an hour boat ride west of the Phi Phi Islands.

It doesn’t provide the same quality of diving as either Shark Point or Phi Phi hence the lack of appeal for the day trip boats to stop there.

It is a small circular island with a sparse mixture coral and rocks. The southern side of the island is basically a flat sandy sea bed with not much marine life. Having said this there are constant rumours that say there is colony of leopard sharks that reside there.

The north side is made up of hard corals and are becoming reasonably healthy over the years. There are you the common reef in attendance with some nice schools of snappers present. The reef is also home to other creatures such as turtles, cuttlefish and octopus.

If she was not surrounded by the better dive sites of Phi Phi, Shark Point and Anemone Reef she would probably be dived a lot more regularly.

One of here down sides is that she is a popular site with the local fisherman and often quite a number of fish cages and fish netting can be found there.

Getting There

Currently there are no dive operators with scheduled trips to Green Island

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.
