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. 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 [...]

Is Scuba Diving Deep Better?

I am often a little miffed when I receive emails asking about depths of dives and the thought of seeing more when deeper. It is one of scuba diving’s greatest myths that when going deeper you will see more creatures. Coral reefs require clear water and sunlight to flourish and most of the best coral is found closer to the surface. The healthier the coral reef is the more marine life will be present. Many fish graze off corals and the coral becomes their major food source. More coral should equal more fish. The closer you are to the surface the more light there is making it easier to see things. The easier it is to see thing the more you will find. [...]

Is Phuket, Thailand a Good Place to Learn to Scuba Dive?

Often divers who wish to learn to scuba dive are faced with a decision to learn in their home country or away. Learning to scuba diving in Phuket has its distinct advantages. 1. The Water is Warm Let's face it who likes to be cold? The water temperature in Phuket is generally around 29 degrees Celsius. Not only is more fun to be in but it is easier to stay focused. When you are cold a considerable amount to your body's energy is used to keep you warm. Less energy is available for concentration and focus. Further warm environments also make us happier.
