At the deeper dive site you will see large schools of tropical fish, reef sharks and the occasional giant whale shark.


Koh Tao

Koh Tao is the most popular destination for diving is also known as the “turtle island” as its shape resembles a turtle.  Koh Tao's little sister island, Koh Nangyuan is a private island that consists of three smaller islands connected together by a beautiful sandbank. Together, these islands form four bays with crystal-clear water, white sandy beaches with no strong current, a variety of colorful reef fishes and fascinating coral reefs that offer optimal conditions for diving. 

There are more than a twenty dive sites near Koh Tao and on our day trip to Koh Tao we will select the dive site that offer the best condition for our divers in accordance to your experience level,interests and desires.The following is Koh Tao Nangyuan favorable dive sites:

Twins
As the name suggests this site comprises of a pair of large groups of rocks which lie just off the west side of the  picturesque island of Koh Nangyuan.  One rock lies nearer to the island at around 8 meters and the other further out at around 16 meters. Between the two rocks you’ll come across a lovely  family of resident Clown Fish  ( Nemo!).  Look out for White  Eyed  Moray Eels, Blue Spotted  Rays, Banner fish, Butterfly fish, Red Breasted Wrasse and the resident turtle. You will find pink Anemone fish adorn the shallower rocks, as well as teems of the black & white Sergeant Major fish and the colorful inquisitive Wrasse.
Twins is a dive site for all levels of diver and one of the more interesting dive sites around Koh Tao.

Green Rock
This site offers the diver an an array of safe short tunnels and swim-troughs  amidst a myriad  of   boulder  and   rock  formations stemming from the central pinnacle, which starts at only 1 meter and reaches down to 28 meters. These features make this dive site one of the most fascinating sites around Koh Tao. Great  opportunities to spot White Eyed Morays, Blue Spotted Rays resting under the overhangs, Angelfish, Butterfly fish and Hawksbill Turtles are often found. Brightly colored Nudibranchs are omnipresent, as are Morays, Harlequin Sweet lips and Blue ringed Angelfish. White tip Reef Sharks can be seen from time to time, and at the deeper end of the site large Grouper and schools of Yellowtail, Fusilier and Silverfish can be seen. Near to the site is a large nesting ground for the famous Titan Triggerfish, so keep a good look out and be prepared for a close encounter with these feisty fish!

White Rock
One of Koh Tao's most popular dive sites with a depth range of 1 to 22 meters and situated a little way south of Koh Nangyuan. The site comprises of one large granite  pinnacle and a smaller rock formation lying in deeper water, a short distance away to the west. Home to Rays and Moray Eels as well as the ever inquisitive Red Breasted Wrasse. Hexagon Grouper relax on the rock ledges while Longtom patrol the summit.
It offers a good depth for beginners and intermediate divers

Shark Island
This small uninhabited island lies just offshore to the southeast of Koh Tao. The northern edge is shallower (around 12 meters ) and is home to a vast array of coral fish amidst the beautiful and extensive coral gardens. The deeper side to the south ranges upwards from 27m where you might be lucky enough to find Leopard or Black Tip Reef Sharks and Chevron Barracuda. At the shallow end you'll find beautiful gardens of vividly colorful corals and anemones and at high tide it is even possible to cross from one side of the southern island to the other. This site offers a great range of fish including the Blue Ringed Angel, Long Fin Banner, and if you are lucky the odd resident Hawksbill Turtle. Huge boulders and rock formations give this site a great topography that is ideal for divers of all levels.

Southwest Pinnacle
The dive site consists of a series of steep pinnacles rising from the sandy seabed & offers an ample variety of marine life. Around the outside of South West Leopard Sharks can be seen asleep on the sand as well as Blue Spotted Rays. The site also hosts the usual range of colorful tropical marine life such as Butterfly fish and Blue ringed Angelfish. Pelagic’s such as Jacks, Barracuda & the occasional Whale shark can often be seen as well as it is one of the deeper water sites laying in similar depths to both Sail Rock and Chumphon Pinnacle. This makes it popular with the bigger pelagic's also..

Chumphon Pinnacle
Is Koh Tao’s most impressive and desirable (by revisiting divers) dive site and also one of the most challenging dive sites with occasionally strong currents and a maximum depth of 36m. The site consists of four massive pinnacles that tower up to 12m below the surface. The top of the rock is carpeted with sea anemones and attendant Pink Anemone Fish. You’ll also find some awesome giant Groupers amongst the rock with impressive schools of Bat Fish, Jacks, Trevally and  Barracuda.

As the site is a good distance offshore, the visibility is excellent, more than 30m (100ft) and whale sharks with accompanying striped remoras can often be spotted. In the last 2 months, we have seen one to six gray reef sharks 1.5 to 2.5 meter at this site on almost every dive.

Sail Rock

Is undoubtedly the most famous dive site in the Koh Samui archipelago. The rock, shaped like an iceberg, emerges from a sandy bottom at 40m to tower 15m above the oceans surface. Located 45 kilometers North of Koh Samui, it is mid way between Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. Sail rock offers the diver stunning underwater topography in which to explore sheer vertical walls, beautiful coral gardens, a unique vertical swim-through called “The Chimney” and an extraordinarily abundant variety of very large schools of fish such as Chevron Barracuda, Jacks, and Big Eyed Trevally. Many of our divers report that diving Sail Rock is like diving in soup of fish. Nowhere else in the world, can you see such a big schools of fish so close to you, circling the pinnacle with you. Unforgettable pictures from Sail Rock shows our diver surrounded by impressive school fish.

The Chimney, located on the northwest side, starts from 18m down and exits at 6m where the natural light penetrating the top makes it fantastically picturesque. At 18m, two divers can enter the cavern abreast where it bends vertically upwards. At 12m you'll spot a hole that opens through the rock and it is possible to swim back into open water from here. At the exit, just 6m from the surface, you'll find yourself surrounded by a magnificent carpet of pink anemones full of vibrant anemone fish. Other known visitors include barracudas, king mackerels, and the occasional whale shark, as well as a wide variety of colorful reef fishes.

Fifteen or so meter away from the main rock you can find the secret pinnacle, so called as many of Samui less experience dive instructors find it difficult to find. The secret pinnacle is an independent pinnacle ranging from depths of 12m to 33m, the site is a large granite rock pinnacle about 1/4 of the size of the main dive site arranged in a rough oval and running from West to East. The pinnacle often attract the biggest schools of fish and only few diver making it the best part of diving at Sail Rock.
