Try diving (Discover Scuba Diving)
Update September 2017: Introductory diving courses are no longer permitted at Phi Phi. We can offer Discover Scuba Diving at the Racha Islands.
For anyone interested in trying diving we have a great day trip that includes two dives at Phi Phi. No experience is required, just general good health.
On a dive a Phi Phi you have the chance to see so much, including sharks, turtles, eels, sea snakes and much much more. Phi Phi’s hard and soft coral reefs are spectacular and the topside scenery is stunning.
Each dive will last about 45 minutes, an experienced PADI instructor will be with you all the way.
The price is 4,900 baht per person including all equipment.
Snorkelers can join the boat for just 2,200 baht.
The Discover Scuba Diving program is not a certification course. You don’t have to sit in a classroom beforehand, you will learn the basics on the boat.
For many people trying SCUBA in Thailand is a highlight of their holiday. More details here.
