Koh Lipe has some of the most outstanding reefs and spectacular scenery in the Andaman Sea. With diving possible year round, the numerous islands of the Butang archepelago offer an abundance of diverse marine life no matter when you choose to visit, although for optimum diving conditions we recommend choosing your actual dive dates around the half moon period in any month as then you will have the least current and usually the better visibility as a result. You can check those dates here www.calendar-12.com/moon_calendar/2017/
Both Phi Phi and Lipe islands are protected as a National Marine Parks. There are limited vehicles on the islands and everything is within a comfortable walking distance. There is also a 200baht marine park entry fee and a 200bhat marine park scuba diving fee applicable only during the high season between October and May.
