Koh Bida Nai

Koh Bida Nai

Koh Bida Nai is a lovely mixture of reef, pinnacle and wall dives

Koh Bida Nai is the sister island to Koh Bida Nok. A part of the Phi Phi National Park. Although it does not have the same diversity as Koh Bida Nok it is still a very nice dive site.

The northern wall contains some stunning corals and it is the feature of the dive site. A beautiful swim through on the south eastern side provides divers with a picturesque view of some large schools of snappers that line either side. Black tip reef sharks and turtles are common place here as to are big schools of travellies and tuna. Whale Sharks often cruise past at the right time of year so keep your eyes peeled. Ribbon eels, Ornate Ghost Pipefish have made regular appearances here so keep a good look out in the broken coral in the sandy areas. Recently the Leopard Sharks have been commonly sited and their gentle nature and diver friendly persona have been providing scuba divers with fantastic dives which can be treasured for a life time. It is one of the best scuba diving sites in the area to see the Hawks-bill turtle as well.

This dive site can be a little difficult for the first time diver so it often done as the second dive when traveling to Phi Phi preferring to allow the beginner divers a start in the bay of Koh Bida Nok.

A very nice dive and one that divers should have a look at when diving in and around Phuket Thailand.

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.

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 [...]
