The Adventure Club is on Phi Phi Island which is part of Ao Nang province. However Phi Phi Island is about 45 kms from the mainland. Diving with the Adventure Club is open to all and we can take guests of all levels of swimming skill and experience to enjoy a wide range of scuba diving activities and snorkeling activities. We offer diving trips for beginners with absolutely no experience needed and trips for the more experienced traveler wishing to get a better service for their Thai baht.
But all of these lead to one simple truth. Our dive centers are all located on Phi Phi Island which is around 2 hours from the mainland by ferry. To come diving with the Adventure Club on any of our dive trips or snorkeling trips all guests must be staying on Phi Phi Island overnight.
Ferries depart and arrive only at fixed times of the day. The length of time between the ferry arrival on Phi Phi Island and it’s early departure does not allow enough time for the guests to participate in our programs and to get the ferry back to the mainland. So in order to do any of our tours you will need to get accommodation on Phi Phi island.
Trips on arrival day
It is possible to arrive on an early morning ferry arriving to Phi Phi island at 1100 AM and do either our afternoon Two Dive Package, or one of our afternoon snorkeling trips such as the Sunset Plankton Tour or the Bamboo, Beers, ‘n Beaches Tour.
Guests will need to get accommodation as they will miss the last ferry back to the mainland.
Trips on departure day
Guests that stay overnight on Phi Phi Island and are leaving the following day on an afternoon ferry may also participate in one of our early morning snorkel trips such as Shark Watch or the Phi Phi Ley tour or, even one of our scuba diving trips such as a Two Dive Package or a Discover Scuba Diver Program.
Our main dive center is located 260 meters away from the main pier on Phi Phi Island. As there are no roads all access is on foot.
To find us:
- Turn right from the pier and walk 200 meters
- Turn left at the large turning set between Phi Phi Scuba Diving and Aquanauts Divers
- Walk 60 meters and we are on the left

Q. What if I take a speedboat in the morning? Can I join your morning trips?
A. In order to get to us by that time you will need to leave the mainland around 0430 AM. Even if you were this enthusiastic to do our trip we still would not have yet done any equipment sizing and completed the registration process which needs to be done the day before in order to save time in the morning. If this was an option the price to rent a private speedboat from the mainland will range between 12,000 – 20,000 baht for the day.
Q. What if I take a speedboat in the morning? Can I join your afternoon trip?
A. Actually yes. It would be possible to get to us say around 1100 AM and do the registration. Our afternoon trips will finish around 1800 PM- 1900 PM. This means that the speedboat company will be traveling back to the mainland in the dark, which not a lot of companies will wish to do for safety reasons. And those that are willing, will be asking for an increase in the regular prices. The usual price to rent a private speedboat from the mainland will range between 12,000 -20,000 baht for the day.
