The Gulf Of Thailand and the waters around Koh Tao is unique, offering over 20 dive sites, with the majority close the island. The close proximity of these sites, combined with their depths, allows us to offer divers variety for each trip.
For those with keen eyes it is also possible to see Scorpionfish lazing on the rocks. Chumphon pinnacle also plays host to seasonal visits by Whale Sharks and their attendant Cobias and Remoras, plus the occasional Manta. A memorable experience for every diver!
SOUTH WEST PINNACLE
South-west of Koh Tao, this site is also widely acclaimed as another of the Gulf's premier diving destinations, with depths ranging from 30m upwards.
The series of seven pinnacles form an underwater mountain range, with the largest peak rising to within 5m of the surface.
Like Chumphon, this site features a carpet of anemones on the upper levels with an abundance of whip corals and large sea fans arrayed along the lower edges of the site.
Impressive Barracuda over a meter in length can be seen patiently waiting whilst tiny Cleaning Wrasse perform their underwater valet service. To the south-east of the main site lies a smaller pinnacle, which is home to two resident, if somewhat shy Leopard sharks.
