Overnight trip to Koh Phi Phi on board the Scuba Explorer

Koh Phi Phi on the Scuba Explorer

The weather has turned, the seas are flat, and the diving is outstanding. So, time to join us on the Scuba Explorer for a fun packed, dive filled adventure to the Koh Phi Phi National Marine Park for an overnight trip. 7 dives including a sunset dive and early morning dive, a chance to dive the dive sites when all the other dive boats have left for the day and before they arrive, and a night out on Koh Phi Phi Don itself. This all inclusive package is only offered in the month of September leaving on Mondays and Fridays. Choose which level of accommodation you would like, jump on board, suit up and dive with us.

Koh Phi Phi dive sites are visited everyday by a number of dive boats from Phuket and Phi Phi itself, for good reason as they are fantastic dives swarming with marine life, you will literally be swimming through huge schools of Big Eyed Snapper and 2 Spot Snapper in the hundreds, the amazing bright yellow tail of the Big Eyed Snapper and they way they all move in unison make this a spectacular site. The Scuba Explorer is offering a chance to experience all of this at time when no other divers will be there. The day boats travelling from Phuket get to Phi Phi to do their first dive at 11am, and have left by 2pm after the second dive. The Scuba Explorer has scheduled another 2 dives after the boats have left, no other divers, pristine corals, all the space in the ocean. The chance to see Black Tip Reef Sharks will be increased, and the sunset dive at Koh Phi Phi is a must, not often done due to time restrictions.

Advanced Open Water course on the Southern Andaman Liveaboard cruise

Elephant Statue in Siam Bay

Freedom Divers asked me to come on-board the Liveaboard trip to the South Andaman for 2 days/3 nights to teach an Advanced Open Water course, of course I was delighted to accept, even the storm warnings were not enough to put me off.

I met my student to go over a few skills in the pool before we set sail that evening, after a few hours in the pool with her I was quietly confident that she would have no problems with the dives we had coming up. I also learnt that she was very excited and had never spent a night on a boat before, this was to be an experience for her.

We boarded the boat at 8pm ready to leave for Koh Phi Phi early morning for our first dive at 7am. The first dive I decided was to be a fun dive as my student had not dived in a year I thought it better to ease her into it and not throw her in the deep end with skills and knowledge, this turned out to be a good idea as there was limited visibility and fairly strong current on the first dive, it was still enjoyable and gave my student time to get used to diving again. Swimming through schools of Big Eyed Snapper my student gave my the thumbs up (wrong sign but I knew what she meant) to say she loved it, mental note here to recap some of the underwater hand signals. The following dives I got the correct signal of ‘awesome’ a lot.

The sunset dive to end all sunset dives

Sunset diving aboard the Scuba Explorer liveaboard

This story all begins with some very nasty weather, nasty enough to almost have our entire guest list and some of the crew hugging the porcelain and wishing they’d stayed on dry land. But we as divers were not about to let some ocean motion get the better of us. So we parked the Scuba Explorer in Bay 1 at Racha Yai, usually only 1 hr from Phuket, but it had taken almost 4 to get there this time fighting the ocean the whole way.

Thankfully Bay 1 was calm, conditions had funnily enough been great all day, with 15 + meters of visibility and no current at all, we’d managed a few really good dives, you certainly would not have guessed it was so nice under the waves if you had been looking at them from above. So we decided to do something a little different for the guests and organised a rare sunset dive. You jump in at around 6.30pm the sun sets around 7pm and your dive turns into a night dive, very fun and you get to see the reef night shift take over right before your eyes.

To make this dive even more interesting for me, our tour leader had decided to throw his nice shiny torch off of the boat in a fit of bitter disappointment at losing the Texas Holdem tournament the night before, thankfully though he had also turned it off so that there was zero hope of ever finding it again. To this day no one knows how he truly lost it, but pretty sure he just wanted to test our searching abilities in case we ever lost anything important, you know, like another torch.
