Koh Bida Nai, the sister island nearby Koh Bida Nok, is also part of the Phi Phi Islands National Park. This varied dive site consists of a sheltered bay, an impressive, beautifully overgrown steep wall with various overhangs and a large isolated rock with a swim-through. At certain points the exposed reef drops down to 30 meters, which is why Koh Bida Nai is also a challenging dive site.
During a day trip, usually two dives are done at the Phi Phi Islands and one dive either at Shark Point, Anemone Reef or Koh Doc Mai. Furthermore, the Phi Phi Islands can be dived as part of liveaboard safaris (Southern Tour and Weekend Trips).
All dive sites are available on the day of the tour. Dive sites are selected based on weather conditions, currents, safety and suitability for the majority of divers on the boat. We can not guarantee specific dive sites before dropping off the boat
The feature of this dive site is the with magnificent corals overgrown northern wall. At the same time it is the place to be for incredibly many and extremely varied nudibranchs. A large swim-through is located on the southeastern side. The yellow snappers are also countless represented here. In the shallow area black-tip reef sharks patrol inexorably. Turtles, especially the endangered hawksbill, are very common here. Also grouper, tuna, moray eels, ghost pipefish are regularly found. Sometimes a tigertail seahorse and a octopus turns up in the western coral gardens. The with anemone fully covered reef in the bay, slopes down gently and gives divers a fantastic dive, even if sea conditions are rough.
