DIVING IN THE ANDAMAN SEA



From your first steps in the alleys of Ton Sai, you will realize that Phi Phi is a famous diving spot. The marine reserve has stunning hidden landscapes, populated by a multitude of fish, crustaceans, sea snakes, ... who thrive in a colorful forest of corals. The marine life abounds, we love it !

Those who have never explored the world of Nemo can choose the "beginner" program that offers a dive to a depth of 8 meters, with an instructor (a little over 3000 Baht, approx. 100 USD).

Others will pay their dive (with equipment) about 2200 Baht (73 USD). There is an opportunity to visit a shipwreck (a little more expensive), or make two dives in the day (lunch usually included on the boat).

You also have the opportunity to get a diving certificate called "Open Water", the first PADI certificate, which costs about 12,000 baht, slightly more than 400 USD (5 dives, theory test and practical test).

To choose your dive club, focus on instructors who speak your language. Clubs show signs that specify which languages they speak, and diving spots available. Many clubs offer night dives.
