King Cruiser


The King Cruiser is a new addition to Phuket's dive site portfolio. It is a car ferry, built in Japan 30 years ago as a comfortable catamaran-hull passenger cruiser with four decks. The King Cruiser had a length of 85 meters and a breadth of 25 meters, giving it a capacity of nearly 900 passengers. It was being used for sightseeing trips when on the 4th of May 1997, the ship sunk after a collision with Anemone Reef. The Cruiser was on its normal route from Phuket to the nearby Phi Phi Island.
Nowadays, the wreck lies in an upright position in fairly shallow water. The steering house is located about ten meters below the surface. The propellers are at the deepest point and rest at about 32 meters. The most interesting areas are the passenger decks between 15 and 20 meters deep. Penetration is extremely hazardous and should only be attempted by certified wreck divers. The wreck itself, is a wonderful opportunity to study the process of marine life-forms taking possession of a new part of their environment. Huge shoals of colourful fish already occupy the ship. Groupers guard the holes and crevices. Even the slower movers - shells and corals - have begun to move in.

The bizarre rock formations both above and below the water, are completely overgrown with a large variety of coral, which is the home to many species of colourful marine life. The western side of the island features a steeply sloping reef. Both blacktip and whitetip reef sharks have been seen here as have many other large pelagic. On the eastern side of the island, there is the opportunity for an impressive wall dive and the exploration of a number of caves and caverns.
The area is rich in invertebrates and has a good representation of tube corals. There are large moray eels and black-and-white banded sea snakes. Besides that, there is a good likelihood that you may see leopard sharks sleeping in the sand at the base of the wall.

Phi Phi - Koh Bida


The Phi Phi Islands offer a great spectrum of underwater species. The marine life at Phi-Phi ranges from small reef fish to the Leopard shark and in the months of January and February there will be a chance of seeing the Whale sharks. This, the worlds biggest fish, feeds on plankton and is harmless to us as divers.
If you are in search of beautiful corals you will not be disappointed at the Phi Phi dive sites where you will find hard corals like Staghorn and Brain as well as soft corals and sea fans.
Bida Islands
The Bida islands are two small rocky outcrops at the southern end of Phi Phi Lee. A local legend says that they look like a pair of boots, left behind standing in the water by a giant. The average depth is 20 meters but some places go down to 30 meters.
Bida Nok
Large underwater rocky formation, featuring walls that drop fiercely. Soft and hard coral abound. Bearded scorpionfish hide among the rocks under hovering lionfish. Parrotfish, Moorish idol, wrasse and sea anemone with colored clownfish. On the sand leopard sharks and stingrays. Black Tip and whalesharks have being sighted by the lucky divers. The walls are covered with a lots of colorful soft coral colonies. The bottom is rather plane. Coral formation located in the sandy area are home to droves of squids. At 20 m there is a cave and a overhang. Leopard sharks can easel be spotted sleeping on the sandy bottom.
Bida Nai
On the northeast side of Bida Nai's imposing wall you will find huge gorgonian sea fan, sea whips and colorfull soft coral with large shoals of Moorish idols. It takes about 50 minutes to dive around the island. Currents - when they exist - usually come from the west. Black Tip and whalesharks have also being sighted by the lucky divers looking in the blue while drifting along the wall.
Hin Pae
Hin Pae is rocky outcrop located south of Phiphi Don (the main island). It is a relatively shallow dive site - 10 to 15 meters deep ending in a rewarding snorkeling place. Hin Pae is also an excellent place to spot sharks Boulder and brain corals form the main topography of the reef. Sea anemones play host to thousand of damsels and amazing clownfish. Soft and hard coral provide shelter for a rich variety of coral fish. There are many holes and tunnels for moray eels to pass through. Crabs, lobsters, angelfish, groupers, snappers, surgeonfish and basslets are also resident.
Hin Dot (Chimney Rocks)
Located a few hundred meters away from Hin Pae, Hin Dot - also known as Chimney Rock - makes a fantastic multi level dive. The divesite is made of three chimneys emerging from the bottom of the sea to close near the surface. These dramatic pinnacles have developed over several hundred years and consist only of clam and wing oysters. Maximum depth of these pinnacles is 30 m, but they reach up to 3, 12 and 15 m. These enormous towers are famous for their large schools of fish. Other fish populations include groupers, pufferfish, lionfish, squid and bearded scorpionfish.
Nui Bay
This uncrowded dive site is located on the north West of Phi Phi Don close to Mosquito island and made of a large bay with an island in the middle. The waters of Nui Bay are shallow and suitable for snorkelers, there are lots of corals and colorful reef fish among small boulders and rocks, encrusted with patches of sponges and interspersed with a multitude of Christmas tree worms. The real divesite is the rocky island in front of this bay. Its western wall descends to 20 meters and the bottom of the southern side ends with a rock and boulders balanced on top of each other. There are explorable with relatively tight swim throughs. Moray eels, lionfish, groupers and angelfish live here. On the sand leopard sharks and rays rest between star fish. On the north-western part of the island in only 10 meter of water fields of soft corals have given name to "Neptune's Garden".
Losamah Bay
Losamah is a small bay at the southern coastline of Phi Phi Lee hosting colorful corals and a small beach. On the sandy bottom you will find patches of brain corals interspersed with Christmas tree and fan worms. The entrance of the bay is blocked by a large, circular island - the main attraction for divers. The islands vertical walls are going down to 20 meters and are dressed in sea whips and wing oysters until reaching the sandy bottom. The divesite promises overhangs and crevices. On the eastern side of the island the diver encounters the highlight of this dive, a spectacular canyon sporting large sea fans and a collage of soft corals. Swimming around the island will take about 45 minutes. The sandy bottom of the bay is punctuated by rocky ledges among which one finds bearded scorpionfish. Fringing the rocks are sea whips with wing oysters clinging to them. Abundant flora and fauna with plenty of bivalve shells. Red coral trouts, angel and butterfly fish dart around as you swim by. The highlight of this dive is a spectacular 15 m long canyon lined with sea fans and soft coral.

Racha Noi


Racha Noi is the most southerly dive site visited by day trip. It is located approximately 25 kilometres south of Phuket and offers some truly spectacular dive sites. It boasts scenery similar to that found at the famous Similan Islands, with giant underwater boulders, covered with a variety of coral. Visibility is excellent ranging from 20 to 40 meters. Water depths are generally deeper than on Racha Yai and the tidal currents are also stronger. This makes the diving a bit more challenging than on the sister island to the north.
The northern tip of Racha Noi features a large underwater ridge, running from the surface down to depths of 40 meters. Large numbers of reef fish, shoals of barracuda and occasionally Manta ray can be seen here. At the southern tip of the island, there is a remote little beach and a dive site which features a reef with depths ranging between 10 and 60 meters. The high chance of seeing large marine animals here makes this dive site something special. Whale sharks, manta rays, stingrays, leopard sharks and yellowtail barracuda are commonly sighted in this area.

Racha Yai


Known for its easy diving, clear calm water and a good variety of marine life, this beautiful tropical island offers ideal diving conditions and is located just 1 hour and 15 min from Phuket. The east side has mainly hard coral fringe reefs, and at the north-east tip lies the wreck of the Andaman Explorer. Set in a beautiful sand fringed bay, the west side of the island offers underwater scenery akin to the north side although one could argue that the coral growth is better.
Beginners will start their dive in a nice shallow bay with a sandy bottom surrounded by colourful coral gardens. Certified divers will be dropped in deeper water ( 60 feet) and will enjoy exciting drift dives encountering Blue spotted sting ray, shoals of Barracuda, Grouper, colourful reef fishes and the unforgettable Trigger fish.

Shark Point


Shark Point was named after the laid-back Leopard Shark that can often be seen resting there. Only a small rocky outcrop breaks the surface of the sea, beneath you will find three large reef sections teeming with marine life.
The reef is covered with soft coral and sponges and is constantly buzzing with fish of every imaginable size, shape and colour. Jackfish and Tuna patrol the reef, Rays and Barracudas cruise by. Leopard Sharks can be seen on almost every dive. They are totally harmless and can easily be approached. Currents can be brisk but they run parallel to the reef and therefore it is also an excellent drift dive

Similan - Barracuda Point


The deepest section of this area is the southern part where there are lots of large boulders on the seafloor; in the deeper waters these are adorned with seafans and sea whips. The shallower section of this area features hard coral, and there are normally plenty of batfish in evidence.
The site's northern part is shallower, with a maximum depth of about 22m (73ft). The seascape is similar to that on the south, but the rocks surrounding you are more prominently highlighted by colorful seastars, anemone and crinoids in radiant reds and yellows. The batfish you encountered at the southern section of this site may follow you to this area.

Similan - Boulder City

The site consists of a collection of enormous submerged granite boulders running southeast-northwest and more typical of a west-facing, rather than an east-facing, coastal rock formation in this area. As you approach them they fancifully resemble rocky mountains separated by wide valleys.
Descending directly from the boat, head southwest to pass over some large scattered rocks before you reach the rocky plateau. This area has many gorgonian seafans and sea whips, plus small table coral, with Chocolate-dip Chromis, and a diversity of fire coral. If you maintain this heading you will then come to the smooth plateau.
The plateau are smooth, their sheer sides punctuated occasionally by clusters of soft coral and radiant crinoid; small crevices house a diversity of marine life, with lionfish, Blue-spotted Grouper, Red Coral Trout and Bearded Scorpionfish all adopting them as havens in the stronger currents. Schools of Pinnate Batfish meander aimlessly in the shallow, beyond which Great Barracuda constantly patrol.


Location: Immediately south of Shark Fin Reef.
Access: The permanent mooring buoy is located over the northeast section of the site in about 27m (90ft) of water.
Depth: 16-32 Metres
Visibility: +30m

Similan - Coral Garden


This very attractive shallow dive site is good for novice divers and for afternoon second dive. Is has the typical formation of an east-facing site in this area with extraordinary coral tables on the reef-flat, which lies in 15 meters of water. The surrounding deeper waters have the usual seafans and whips, and these feature in the shallower waters as well. There are many fire coral on the reef-slope, along with anemone hosting various clownfish. There is a good representation of colorful reef-fish, including damselfish, butterflyfish and basslets.
This site offer the best condition to spot turtle and specially juvenile ones, as the island #1 is a protected reproduction area.

Similan - Elephant Rock

The dive takes you around huge breathtaking boulders, some with frames measuring over 30m (100ft) sitting individually or stacked high to form daring swimthroughs comprising arches, caverns and tunnels at all depths.
You descend at the mooring buoy and head east to the first of the colossal granite boulder; many parrotfish adorn this part of the site. The eastern faces of the boulders have far more soft coral than the exposed western faces.
Southwards, the boulders take a different formation, single boulders some 30m (91ft) wide lying with sandy pathways between them. Around these boulders are Emperor and Imperial Angelfish, Titan Triggerfish and sheltering schools of Yellowtail Fusiliers and Juvenile Yellow Snappers.
The southernmost point of the site is a tiny group of submerged pinnacles in very deep water. These are a great place to observe small reef sharks.


Location: The giant rocky outcrop off Koh Similan's southern tip. As you approach the site from the west the outcrop resembles a partially submerged elephant-hence the name.
Access: There is one permanent mooring buoy off the western face: descending to about 18m (60ft), directly onto the site.
Depth: 0-70 Metres
Visibility: 15 à +30m
Currents: Currents can be strong, flowing north-south.
Surface conditions: The waves can be powerful
Diver Experience Level: Experienced divers only

Similan - Fantasea Reef

This is one of the top dive sites of the archipelago if not the best. Aside from the lack of any wrecks, there is something here for every diver.
Descending at the eastern buoy takes you to a rocky plateau at 15m (50ft) home of a huge Napoleon Wrasse. This is a great place for underwater photographers. They will find there Powder-blue Surgeonfish, Spinyfoot and Masked Unicornfish and Schooling and Pennant Bannerfish, clashing with the extremely photogenic Moorish Idols and juvenile Titan Triggerfish to name a few.
Heading down towards the southwest is a sheerwalled gully. You should not venture into it as you might damaged the impressive gorgonian seafans and radiant soft coral. A giant moray eel is also a resident here.
Another great area lies slightly northwest of the inner buoy, due north of the outer. A group of three rocks form a pyramid, broken by a narrow gorge running east-west.
This site demands more than one visit.


Location: About 200m (220yd) off the western coast of Koh Similan (Island #8): about twice that distance southwest of Turtle Rock
Access: Two mooring buoys, running east-west, act as securings for diveboats and serve as direct descent points to the site.
Depth: 12 à +40 Metres
Visibility: 15 à +30m
Currents: changing
Surface conditions: The waves can be powerful
Diver Experience Level: experienced divers or with Divemaster

Similan - Shark Fin Reef

The best locations to enter the water are off either and of the line of small rocky outcrops. The northeastern side features a sloping reef, the southwestern side a more dramatically dropoff. At the southeastern end, in about 16m (53ft), is a large swimthrough; this provides an almost purpose-built opening, whichever way you are going, to the site's opposite side.
The marine life at this site is much more intense and diverse along and below the sloping northeastern reef. Regular inhabitants include schools of batfish, surgeonfish, Moorish Idols and bannerfish. Large Napoleon Wrasse have also been seen. This section of the site is a very good place to spot passing sharks and large rays.


Location: Around the small collection of rocks, which breads the water at low tide, 3km (1.6.miles) southeast of Koh Payan (Island#3)
Access: This site remains unbouyed.
Depth: 16-40 Metres
Visibility: 5 à +25m

Similan - Stonehenge

This deep dive offers its best features below 25m (83ft). The site consists of large towering rocks. The alleyways between these host large seafans and barrel sponges. This is a particularly good site for lobsters, and lionfish and Bearded Scorpionfish are likewise plentiful. Unicorn Surgeonfish and large angelfish are other common denzens, while pelagics like tuna, barracuda and trevally are frequent visitors. Leopard Sharks are often found on the sand in the deeper parts of this site. There is also a resident shovel-nosed shark here.


Location: Directly off the northern point of Koh Miang (Island #4)
Access: There is no mooring buoy.
Depth: 20-40 Metres

Similan - Turtle Rock

Once you have jumped in the water you will descend directly to an area of large boulders at about 20m (66ft). Our experience Divemaster will take you around these boulders and through their interconnecting swimthroughs. The boulders are completely covered with marine life with large numbers of featherstars and clusters of hard and soft coral. Turtles are very often spotted swimming between the boulders which are also home for Powder-blue Surgeonfish and juvenile triggerfish. Further out are larger triggerfish including Titan and Indian.
Heading northeast is an impressive gorge-like swimthrough, 3m (10ft) across. Gorgonian seafans adorn its walls and provide hiding-places for small groups of lionfish and hundreds of small fish.


Location: About 50m (55yd) off the rocky northwest coastline of Koh Similan (Island#8), by the larger of the shore's boulders.
Access: The site is unbuoyed
Depth: 15 à 30 Metres
