Ao Nang Dive Trips

Ao Nang dive trips with Sawasdee Divers Krabi

While you are visiting us here in Ao Nang, it is very easy to go out diving for a day on one of our day trips that leave only at a short distance from our dive centre. We are very fortunate to have many islands so close to our coast.
Right off Ao Nang beach you can already see our Local Islands. These islands are perfect for a diving day trip and a nice advantage is that you will return quite early in the afternoon, so you still have time to spend on other things you’d like to do and see. Average cruising time is about 40 minutes on any of our local Ao Nang dive trips. We have about 5 islands close to Ao Nang that we dive regularly. At these islands you can find some amazing marine life like seahorses and many kinds of nudibranchs.

A full diving day trip will take you to Phi Phi National Marine Park. The Phi Phi islands are surrounded by many dive sites, so you could easily take a few day trips here and dive a different spot every time. On a regular day trip you will do 2 dives. Cruising time to Phi Phi is around 2 hours, but the scenery and islands along the way will make this trip far from boring. Once you arrive at Phi Phi it’s time to gear up and hit the water. Phi Phi’s dive sites boast quality corals and a huge variety of fish. Moray eels, black tip reef sharks, leopard sharks and cuttle fish are quite common in the area. This is probably the favourite of our Ao Nang dive trips schedule.

Another day of diving can be spend heading towards another area with great dive spots. The Shark Point Area includes 3 dive sites, only a short distance apart. The first dive is usually done at the famous King Cruiser wreck, a car ferry that went down in 1997 and rest at the bottom of the ocean at about 30 metres deep. To this day coral growth and fish population is only increasing. An amazing dive for the advanced divers (and up) among us, or for one of your adventure dives if you are not an Advanced Open Water diver just yet.
The second dive is done at Anemone Reef, a rock pinnacle covered in anemones and with a good fish population. Zebra morays, squid, seahorses and ghost pipefish. They can all be found here.
One of the best dive sites in the area is definitely Shark Point. This is where you will do your third dive. The sharks might have declined here over the years, but the corals are still truly amazing. Huge sponge barrels and giant gorgonian sea fans make this dive site a true high light of this diving day trip. Schools of jacks and barracuda are frequent visitors here. And you might still swim into that leopard shark, from which the dive site’s name originates.
All in all a great day trip with a total of 3 dives. A good trip in our Ao Nang dive trips program for the dive-hungry ones among us.
