Phi Phi Islands / Thailand

Phi Phi Don Island
The archipelago consists of 6 islands, the greatest of which are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Ley.
Divers can admire a variety of anemones at an amazing dive site Anemone Reef. They are mesmerizingly rolling on the waves. Due to a great variety of marine anemones a lot of reef fish come here in search of food.
Dive site Shark Point grants an opportunity to admire the leopard sharks. This colorful reef has an abundance of marine life. The most vivid feature of the reef is pink and violet soft corals that cover the hills of the reef. Lots of food attracts endless diversity of tropic fish. In 1992 Shark Point was announced a Marine Reserve by Thailand government.
For wreck fans there is a chance to visit King Cruiser wreck – a catamaran 85m/279ft long, at the beginning used for cargo-passenger transportations between Phuket and Phi Phi. In 1997 it sunk near Shark Point reef. Now it lies at 16-32m/52-104ft depth in vertical position. It perfectly suits both experienced divers and those who have never dived to wrecks before. Here divers will have a great chance to admire an abundance of marine life, especially often this place is visited by lion fish, dog fish and barracudas.
