Hin Bida (Bida Rock)

Hin Bida (Bida Rock) is a part of the Phi Phi Islands. She is a dive site some 20 minutes boat ride further east of Koh Bida Nok. Hin translates to rock in Thai and you can see the top rock protruding the surface depending on the tides at the time.

This unusually shaped rock is not dissimilar to the shape of a human hand. The main rock has five finger like pinnacles that run from the surface down to 15 – 20 metres where it then flatten out to a sandy sea bed.

The dive itself is predominately a rocky outcrop and there is very little coral to be found. The rock takes on a different appearance to most rocks in the region taking on a pale yellow and brown completion.

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

The dive has been a favourite recently as it has been a popular home for the much love leopard sharks that can be found in the shallow water and can make them accessible to most divers. Also found at the site are the popular cuttlefish and octopus along with a nice range of reef fish including lion fish, scorpion fish and cornetfish. There are nice schools of two spot snappers as well.

On occasions the rock can be visited by the holy grail of fish being the whale shark. So if you are there keep an eye out in the deeper waters as you may just be lucky.

Getting There

Dive boats go to Phi Phi every day of the week as a part of a 3-dive combo with Shark Point. Hin Bida is scheduled (wether permitting) Mondays and Fridays. 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.
