The dive sites at Ko Phi Phi provide an excellent chance to photograph larger fish such as Black-Tip Reef Sharks and Leopard Sharks.
These docile, nocturnal creatures are normally found lying on the sand facing into the current; they are one of only four species of shark that doesn’t need to keep swimming in order to breathe. They like to eat crustaceans, small fish and sea snakes.
Surprisingly little else is known about the species, although they are believed to be closely related to the Whale Shark. They can grow up to 3.5 meters and are completely harmless to humans.

Scubafish and Liquid Lense: Our Underwater Video at Shark Point
Shark Point is one of the most famous dive sites of the area and justifiably so. Actually made up of two pinnacles, only one of which breaks the surface – it is home to incredibly healthy reefs, with many different types of corals, most notably fields of gorgonian seafans and colourful soft corals, huge barrel sponges & a level of diversity that is hard to match anywhere in the world.
Enjoy Cuttlefish, Lionfish, Octopus, many different species of Morays, Nudibranches, Shrimps, Crabs, and the chance to see Leopard Sharks that gave this site its name.

Underwater Video Guide to the King Cruiser Wreck with Scubafish.
The King Cruiser was originally a car ferry in Japan before being used to transport passengers between Phuket and Ko Phi Phi. On May 4th, 1997, the ferry hit the dive site Anemone Reef and quickly sank. All the passengers were rescued by nearby dive and fishing boats and there were no casualties.
The steel wreck has now evolved into a fantastic natural reef and the popular dive site is home to a huge variety of marine life, who seek shelter within it.
