Luckily we have over twenty local sites to choose from which you can see on the dive site map. Most are generally quite shallow dives with maximum depths of around twenty metres, although on a few dive sites depths reach around thirty metres. The topography of the sites themselves are completely varied with fringing reefs, rocky outcrops, vertical walls and plenty of big over-hangs and swim-throughs. Many sites are littered with a high concentration of marine life, soft corals are in abundance with giant gorgonian sea fans, sea whips and different species of anemone. Also hundreds of different species of reef fish can be found on every dive including banner fish, angel fish, clown fish, scorpion fish, trumpet fish and schooling yellow snapper. zebra sharks (or leopard sharks), black-tip reef sharks, green and hawksbill turtles, sea horses, cuttle fish, moray eels, banded sea-snakes and harlequin ghost pipe fish being major attractions. The gigantic yet harmless whale shark also makes the occasional showing. The local dives are diverse and interesting enough to keep the certified diver busy for weeks of diving!
Here at Harlequin we usually operate morning and afternoon trips everyday on our local dives. We leave from the beach directly outside our shop at 08:00 for the morning trip and 13:00 for the afternoon trip. [this can change sometimes due to the tides] Due to our custom built dive boat being very fast it takes us no more than ten minutes to get to any of our dive sites.
We make a one hour dive at the first site, then we usually go to one of the bays on Koh Phi Phi Leh where we stop for about one hour for lunch, then we move to the second dive site where we make another one hour dive, returning to the shop in a total about four hours.
