Liveaboard Diving at Ko Phi Phi
The diving in Phi Phi offers something extra for the discerning diver visiting Thailand seeking a liveaboard. Firstly the scenery above the water is completely different here with vertical limestone cliffs predominating rather than the gently sloping granite of the north. This means that the diving can be a little different too, with mini-walls and shallow coral gardens predominating.
The marine life is, as the Thai's say, same same but different in Phi Phi. Differing species of Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, Grouper and Wrasse will keep budding marine biologists busy in the id books, as will some unusual nudibranchs that feast on the differing species of sponge that are available in the nutrient rich waters. And while visibility can sometimes be less due to the mangroves of Phang-Nga Bay, it is still generally over 20m. You can sometimes get lucky with pelagics on your Phi Phi liveaboard too, with populations of Black Tip and Leopard Sharks, early morning Eagle Rays, and even the chance of Whale Shark passing by from time to time.
When to dive Ko Phi Phi by liveaboard
Diving around Ko Phi Phi by liveaboard is only really practical from November to April or maybe even May. While you can actually dive on these sites year round, MV Philkade southern itineraries take in Phi Phi along with Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, and Ko Haa which are far less accessible throughout the Phuket low season.
