DIVE SITES

Koh haa

Koh Haa means "five islands" in Thai, and its essential area "The Lagoon", is an easy and peaceful destination to start Safari dives. Other dive sites in Koh Haa Natural Park include two famous sites, The Cathedral and The Chimney. The marine animals of this natural park include both Sea Turtles and Octopus and rarer Ghost Needle fish. Marble- and Eagle Rays are also often seen in Koh Haa and occasionally there are Whale Sharks and Mantas.

Depth 5 - 30 meters / Visibility 15 - 30 meters

Hin Daeng / Muang

Hin Daeng means Red Stone and Hin Muang Violet Stone. These two underground huge hills are full of red and violet soft corals, huge fan corals, and colorful sea bream with litter fish. You should also remember to observe around here, because Gray Reef Sharks, Leopard Sharks, or even Whales will often come here. The rocky edges of Hin Daeng and Hin Muang descend up to a depth of 60 meters, and Hin Daeng has a famous Manta cleaning station, so collision with Manta Ray is likely here!

Depth 8 - 60 meters / Visibility 10 - 40 meters

Phi Phi

The Phi Phi Islands consist of a total of six islands. Its most famous dive sites include Koh Bida Nok, a small island with lively marine life. During the dive it is difficult to decide which direction to look for, because there is so much to see everywhere. The most impressive views of Koh Bida Nok in addition to the reefs and Turtles are absolutely huge scools of Yellow Back Snappers. Diving with these scools is a memorable one, because there are so many fins around you, looking in any direction.

Depth 5 - 30 meters / Visibility 15 - 30 meters

Other sites

Shark Point’s Pinnacles, Anemone Reef’s Anemone Fishs, and Koh Doc Main walls are also on the way, and usually we will dive in one or two of these sites.

Along the route there are also two of the most famous wrecks in the area, the 85-meter massive catamaran submerged in 2007, the King Cruiser and the 50-meter-dated old fleet of immersed Kled Gaeow.
