Booking FAQs

Are you ever fully booked?2020-08-19T07:54:08+00:00

Since we accept only small groups per staff member, it means we are restricted to the amount of staff we have and therefore we are sometimes full. It is advisable to book in advance if you are sure of the dates.

When should I book by?2020-08-19T05:12:48+00:00

Our tours are scheduled to leave at certain times. Tours that are leaving in the morning need to be booked at least the day before so that we can prepare the equipment and staff. It is possible, sometimes, to book a trip in the morning that is going out in the afternoon. All booking acceptances are subject to our permitted group sizes.

Why should I book in advance?2020-08-25T03:47:05+00:00

Booking online means you will save up to 20% on most of our packages. We accept walk-in bookings, but then you’ll not take advantage of the early bird online discount. And there is the risk of us being fully booked.

How can I book?2023-08-09T03:16:54+00:00

There are a couple of ways to book.

Online

  • You can book online by using our website. For most programs we only require a 10% deposit for most programs which is payable via PAYPAL.
  • Snorkeling trips and transportation services require full payment

Walk-in

  • You can book at the dive center a day before the trip, or before 1130h when doing our afternoon trip.
  • Walk-in bookings are subject to having available staff and/ or available spots on the boats
Can I book the same day?2020-09-15T05:03:25+00:00

Yes you can book directly at the center, as long as we have spaces and staff available.

For early morning trips, guests need to book and register at least one day before. This is because we need to make preparations and assign staff in advance in order to be well organized.

For afternoon trips it is possible to book and register in the morning before 1130h, however whenever possible it is better to do this the day before.

Should I stay on Phi Phi Island?2020-09-15T05:04:43+00:00

In order to participate in any of our trips you will need to get accommodation on Phi Phi Island. This is due to a few things.

  • Our dive center is located on Phi Phi island and we cannot send our boat to the mainland to collect guests.
  • The morning ferry arrives at Phi Phi Island at 1100h and leaves at 1430h. This does not allow enough time to do our trip and be back in time to catch the ferry
