National Park Fees introduced To Scuba Diving Phi Phi

The Thailand National Parks office informed the Phuket scuba diving industry on the 23rd March 2016 that they will be introducing a daily fee for divers entering the Phi Phi Islands national park.

This is similar to what is currently in place for the liveaboard adventures that visit the Similan and Surin National Parks.

This effectively means there will be a fee of THB 600 for every diver and THB 400 for every non-diver that visits Koh Phi Phi National Park. Fees will be payable in cash on the boat when entering Phi Phi

The fee is intended to help preserve the stunning marine fauna and flora found in the Koh Phi Phi National Park.

This has been a topic of discussion for many years now. The authorities will officially implement the fees from 1st April 2016 with the fee being paid in cash to park officials on the dive day.

Unfortunately this will increase the prices of our day trips to Phi Phi and PADI Open Water Courses and PADI Advanced Open Water Courses that involving diving Phi Phi.

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 would be no device to keep you afloa [...]
