Shark Watching Tours in Phi Phi

Phi Phi Sporting and Leisure Activities

Shark watching is a famous activity for tourists in Phi Phi Island. The most popular spot for this tour is located off the eastern end of Long Beach, a few hundred metres from the shore. It is known as Phi Phi Small Shark Point (there’s another Shark Point off the west coast of Phi Phi Don Island, but it is only visited by scuba divers). This unique activity allows you to swim with one of the ocean’s most misunderstood creatures: sharks. Shark watching tours are usually fascinating and dramatic experiences.

All shark tours include safety precautions and proper equipment. Black tip sharks are the most common species in the shallow waters around Koh Phi Phi. They measure around 1 metre long.

Highlights of Shark Watching Tours in Phi Phi

Some people feel scared as they dip their feet into the water, which is a perfectly natural reaction. However, as you overcome your fear and try to calm yourself, you will notice that these black tip sharks are not actually harmful. Rather, they're quite timid. If you show signs of fear, they might actually swim away. If you are lucky enough, you will encounter a couple of sharks surrounding the place swimming in circles.

The activity is typically done in the morning depending on the flow of the tides. The tour is done with just a small group of people per batch as to not disrupt the sharks and scatter them. Your tour guide is the one responsible in instructing you the things you will be doing and what you should not do. Shark watching tours are a memorable experience and is definitely an opportunity you should not missed on doing when you are in Phi Phi Island.

One of the most experienced shark watching tour companies is The Adventure Club.
