KOH TAO DIVE SITES
Depth: 5 -20 meters
Easy - Intermediate Level
White Rock is formed by two large pinnacles, surrounded by beautiful coral gardens with a variety of fish and marine life to explore. The literal white rock pinnacle is located to the northeast and you can see the white tip from the surface.
Depth 8 - 18 meters
Twins is one of the most popular dive site in Koh Tao. It's formed by 2 very similar pinnacles in crystal clear, calm and shallow waters. It is a dive site for all levels, fun guaranteed with lots of marine life to explore. Nearby is the man-made buoyancy world, perfect for underwater play.
Depth 4 to 25 mts.
We recommend Shark Island for more experienced divers. This small uninhabited island is located just in front of Aow Leuk Bay. It is a huge, multiple rock island that looks like shark fin. Sometimes there is a current consider.
Depth 12 to 35 meters.
Undoubtedly Chumphon Pinnacle is the best dive site in Koh Tao. Chumphon is a deep pinnacle between 14 and 30 meters. It's a favorite spot of barracuda (specially Barracuda Rock) and it's slightly larger friend, the whale shark!!
Depth 5 to 20 meters.
Red Rock has an incredible drop-off to the Japanese Gardens. To the west of Red Rock is the cave Nangyuan. This beautiful passageway is not very crowded. The "drop-off" is a good alternative to the gardens and allows you to go a bit deeper.
Depth 1 to 35 mts.
Of all the diving spots in Koh Tao, Sail Rock is the best. This dive site is over an hour away, so it's a special trip surround with a lot of energy when we schedule a boat to go. Apart from schools of fish everywhere and of different types, there is also the "chimney" that starts at 5 meters and ends around the 20.
Depth: 20 to 30 meters
HTMS Sattakut was purposefully submerged in 2011. The ship was given to Thailand by the US Navy during World War 2 and has two machine guns and multiple corridors that allow you to travel the boat inside (only with the specialty certification).
Depth 5 to 30 mts.
If the whale shark is not in Chumphon, she could be in at Southwest. This fun pinnacle is located 30 minutes from Koh Tao. The main pinnacle is surrounded by more rocks at a greater depth which makes it an interesting place to explore at multiple levels.
