    Boat Trip to The Phi Phi Islands National Park (2 Dives)

    Comprising of a number of islands about 2 – 2.5 hours away from Ao Nang by our diving dayboat. These islands form the Phi Phi National Park and contain a multitude of popular dive sites. Only the largest island Phi Phi Don is inhabited, the remaining islands are all impressive limestone cliffs rising out of the clear, turquoise waters. The beach at Maya Bay on the second largest island of Phi Phi Leh, was the setting for the Leonardo Di-Caprio movie ‘The Beach’ and as a result attracts hordes of camera happy travellers. On the East side of Phi Phi Don, you can visit the Viking Cave’ , which contains cave drawings made by generations of native fishermen to bring them good luck. It is also the place to witness locals climbing hundreds of feet up vines and rickety bamboo ladders in order to harvest swallows nests, an expensive delicacy bound for the Chinese market. The many dive sites of the Phi Phi islands offer something for all divers with gentle sloping reefs, deep pinnacles, wall drift diving, swim-throughs and some small caves. Depths range from 5-25m and visibility is consistently above 10m, and very often 25m plus.
