Diveboat Schedule – Scuba Diving & Snorkelling Trips

Monday – King Cruiser wreck, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai

Deep Wreck Diving / Difficulty: Medium
Looking for something adventurous? The King Cruiser Wreck is an 85m long car ferry that sits upright at 30m on a sandy seabed. Although semi-collapsed now, she is a safe-haven for a huge variety of marine life, in particular snapper and fusiliers. Anemone Reef is a submerged
pinnacle covered in dense sea anemones. The depth ranges from 5m to a sandy bottom at 25m.
The final wall dive is at Koh Doc Mai: move slowly and examine the many cracks and crevices to see white-eyed moray eels, nudibranchs, cleaner shrimp- and if you’re lucky- ghostpipe fish.

Tuesday Lucy’s Reef, Staghorn Reef and Home Run

Coral Reef Diving / Difficulty: Medium
These three coral reef dives offer easy, shallow diving ideal for beginners or those looking to maximize their time underwater. Currents are usually mild so visibility is very good and there is always a huge variety of fish, such as butterflyfish, angelfish and wrasse to admire as you glide over the corals. Huge schools of barracuda are often seen midwater away from the reefs!

Wednesday – Shark Point, Koh Bida Nok and Koh Bida Nai

Shark Diving / Difficulty: Medium
Shark Point is made up of three pinnacles and, as the name suggests, is frequented by leopard sharks that you may encounter just sleeping on the sand or cruising around close to the reef. The site also has a huge diversity of other marine-life including lionfish, and some stunning
purple and pink corals. Leopard sharks are also found around Bida Nok and Bida Nai, as are blacktip reef sharks, nurse sharks and bamboo sharks!

Thursday – Banana Bay, Marina Bay and Bay 3

Turtle Diving / Difficulty: Medium
The three dive sites today are sheltered bays so offer calm conditions and good visibility- an ideal combination to spot turtles! With a mixture of corals, sea fans, sea whips and fabulous granite rock formations, these sites are also excellent to spot parrotfish, butterflyfish, yellowtail
barracuda and giant moray eels. Also keep your eyes peeled for manta rays!

Friday – Koh Bida Nok, Maya Bay and Koh Doc Mai

Phi Phi Islands Difficulty: Medium
The islands of Phi Phi offer some of the most spectacular backdrops in Thailand and the underwater topography doesn’t disappoint either! With the combination of gentle sloping reefs and dramatic walls dropping to 20-25m, no two dives at Phi Phi are ever the same. Blacktip and
whitetip reef sharks are very common here as well as macro species such as ghost piperfish and nudibranchs.

Saturday -Fish Eagle Wreck, Artificial Reef and Bay 1-2

Shallow Wreck Diving / Difficulty: Medium
These shallower wrecks make an ideal environment for training for the deeper wrecks as well as being a safe-haven for a large variety of small fish including angelfish, box fish and puffer fish. The many nooks and crannies of the wreck make ideal homes for moray eels and boxer shrimp. The sandy seabed of Bay 1-2 hides the occasional Kuhl’s stingray and also keep an eye out for the resident turtle.

Sunday – South Tip (Plateau), Banana Bay and Bungalow Bay

Manta Ray Diving / Difficulty: Medium
The South Tip of Racha Noi is your best chance to encounter manta rays. The currents can be strong here and with a deep average depth is only suitable for more experienced divers. The other dives are easier and you will still have a chance to see manta rays. Other highlights
include damselfish, butterfly fish and fusiliers.
