Rebreather diving at Phi Phi Islands
The dive sites around Phi Phi Islands belong to the best of Thailand and promise exceptional diving experiences with the rebreather. Koh Bida Nok is the outermost island located south of Phi Phi Ley. Whether in the gently sloping bay or on the steep wall and by the upstream huge coral blocks in depths, colorful soft corals, huge fan corals (gorgonians) and endless shoals of snappers, barracuda and mackerel make this stunning dive site impressive. The soundless glide with a rebreather close through these fish shoals is an indescribable experience. Especially around the deeper and outer coral blocks encounters with other divers are rare, as their no-decompression limits does not allow the same dive profile as a rebreather. Other highlights for rebreather diving are the dive sites Turtle Rock and Palong Wall at Phi Phi Ley (near Maya Bay – famous by the movie “The Beach”). Because there are often blacktip reef sharks and turtles encountered, which can be admired very close by rebreather divers. In addition, at Turtle Rock is the topography of the reef with many small caves, swim-throughs and overhangs extremely interesting and just a feast for the eyes.

Huge granite boulders coupled with hard corals and a white sandy bottom with crystal clear water, offers a spectacular scenery for rebreather divers. Octopus, mantis shrimp, cuttlefish, shrimps, sea snakes and different species of nudi branches makes rebreather diving beside the usual reef fish, varied and surprising.

Rebreather diving at King Cruiser wreck, Shark Point, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai
Between Phuket and Phi Phi in the open ocean is the dive site cluster King Cruiser wreck, Shark Point, Anemone Reef and Koh Doc Mai located. The King Cruiser was a passenger ferry (catamaran) between Phuket and Phi Phi Islands before it crashed inexplicably in 1997 on Anemone Reef and sank. Now the 85-meter long and impressive wreck lies upright in a depth of 30 meters on the sandy bottom. Meanwhile it has become a remarkable artificial reef which attracts a myriad of sea creatures. Colorful soft corals thrive on the current-exposed wreck. For safety reasons it can not be penetrated. With rebreathers, respectively with an adequate training it can be submerged between the skids on the bottom along the entire length, where often big nurse sharks are found. At the latest the benefits of rebreather diving draw from clear at this dive site. No-decompression limit and air consumption don’t limit rebreather diver and therefore the wreck can be explored during the full dive time, limitless and without noise of other divers.
Shark Point is a collection of several underwater reefs and is accordingly “extensive” to dive. The most famous pinnacles are Shark Point 1 and 2. As the name suggests, leopard sharks are often seen in this area. Either way, you will never get enough to witness the beauty of the scenery of this dive sites. To hover silently with the rebreather over giant gorgonians past magnificent soft corals of pink, over purple to scarlet, is a class of its own. And once again, all this far away from the “normal” diving routes – this is exploring by rebreathers.
Another absolutely first-class dive site, is the Anemone Reef. As the name implies, the entire reef is covered with anemones, which shimmer in all rainbow colors. The rather small reef begins at about 3 meters and goes down to max. 25 meters, and is completely covered by all sort of corals. Accordingly attractive and suitable is this dive site for all kinds of marine life. In addition to countless fish, moray’s, and nudi branches, seahorses can be found and charm rebreather divers. In the blue water often impressive shoals of barracudas, jacks and snappers are spotted and can be escorted with the rebreather.
Other dive sites are located around the limestone cliffs of Koh Doc Mai. The flower island disclosed rebreather divers on the east side, a steep wall which it has in itself. From 5 to 25 meters thriving corals and huge sponges of all kinds, which mean perfect habitat for tiny creatures. Therefore, macro-lovers get their money’s worth. In the spacious caves there is also always something interesting before nurse sharks on a small overhang a bit deeper can be visited. At this dive site you can find sometimes strong currents; correspondingly demanding the rebreather diving is there. The dive site is always approached on the way back as 3rd dive.
