Forra Dive centre was established on Koh Lipe in 1997 and since 2002 is

under the management of Antoine Pantelic , a french PADI, CMAS and SDI

instructor. Antoine has over 10000 dives on his record, 7000 of those in the South Andaman Sea.

We have excellent knowledge of the different dive sites in the Butang archipelago and more generally in the South Andaman Sea.

We have 2 dive boats: Charan 5 "Moskitoe", Charan 9 "Cargo Lounge" that we use for daily trips around the Butang archipelago. Every boat has a sundeck and toilets onboard.

 

Diving around Koh Lipe offers you the chance to see amazing creatures like whale sharks, manta rays, devil rays, eagle rays, blue spotted lagoon rays, leopard sharks, black tip reef sharks, groupers, many species of moray eels, barracudas, turtles, parrotfish, lionfish, scorpion fish, as well as seahorses and ghost pipefish…the list goes on, so keep your eyes peeled!

 

There are a large variety of dives for all levels of diver, from easy dives around vibrantly colourful rich soft corals and giant barrel sponges to the more demanding drift and deep dives for advanced divers.

Discover aquatic life around the islands of the archipelago Butang.

In Koh Tarutao Marine Park, there are nearly a quarter of the world's tropical fish species. The waters around Koh Lipe are deep and clear. The light penetration allows good photosynthesis, explaining the richness and diversity of the reef. The average depth around the archipelago Butang is 40 meters and the tidal currents are sometimes strong. We can offer all kinds of dives for beginners and for advanced and experienced divers.

You can see in these waters leopard sharks, black tip reef sharks, moray species, groupers, barracudas, turtles, parrotfish, surgeonfish, wrasse, damselfish, lionfish, stonefish, scorpion, hyppocampes ...

The reefs around Butang islands offer a wide variety of soft and hard corals. The red soft coral, blue, violet, pink, white and orange are the hallmarks of dives such as Koh Jabang, Koh Hin Son, Koh Sarang, Koh Pung or 8 Mile Rock. Finally Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, we offer on our cruises, are surely among the five best diving in Thailand. The months February to May offer optimal conditions to see whale sharks, manta rays and devils rays that filter plankton at this time of year.

 

All dives are made under the supervision of a professional diving.


Forra Diving offers the following activities:

Fun dives

Introductory dives

PADI & CMAS courses

Snorkeling Trips 

Snorkel while your friends are diving.

Kayak Rental

Article : "The Moral Of Coral" par Collin Piprell, Sawasdee Magazine, Avril 2002:

"South Asia is practically holds a third of the coral reefs of the world, representing a very rich ecosystem biodiversity. Thailand alone has more than 300 major reef on both sides; the richest located in the Andaman Sea. This one has deeper waters, clearer, and the salinity is higher compared to the Gulf of Siam. The reefs stretch from Marine Park Tarutao south of the kingdom, the Surin Islands on the northern border. It counted 200 species of coral, against sixty in the Gulf of Siam. The Andaman Sea is so much more rich and diverse flora and fauna underwater. "
