Located northwest of Phi Phi Ley Island with Maya Bay, known from The Beach, Palong Wall is the undisputed blacktip reef shark paradise! The uninhabited island of Phi Phi Ley is the second largest island in the Phi Phi Archipelago after Phi Phi Don.
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 limestone cliffs of this Phi Phi island are 100 to 300 meters high and drop to a depth of four meters, where a large plateau is located. The main reef slopes down from there to 16 to 20 meters. As a rule, the current is mild, and drifts usually north. The hard coral reef is very rocky, alternate it has large sandy areas. This dive site is known for its spirited blacktip reef sharks, chasing around in shallow water. On some days up to 50 of these harmless sharks, of different age and size, can be admired. A true shark festival, which makes every diver’s heart beat faster. However, if the blacktip reef sharks do not show up, it is at best an average dive site. Then you can enjoy the rare razor fish, many nudibranchs and mantis shrimps.
