Thailand Diving

If you are a diving fan and you are interested in the Thailand diving, you have to know that the Samui Islands, Tao and Phangan are famous for the numerous diving centres, representing one of the most important and attractive destinations for the diving fans from all over the world. Is the ideal destination for all the divers’ categories: beginners, willing for adventure, which can register to a diving school and in the shortest time they can become true divers; the ones who already have a certificate can upgrade it and the pro ones can improve their experience.


As diving destination we can suggest: Chumpon Pinnacle – is considered first site from Koh Tao being one of the most difficult,


due to the strong winds. Varying in depths from 12 metres to 40 metres, the site is a group of massive rocks arranged in an oval brute condition that gives the sensation of a tower with sharp top. The visibility is superb in season and the site plays the host role for a big variety of oceanic fish, as well as reef fish. The South-West Pinnacle- is made of a rock formation with depths varying from 4 and 30 metres, the ‘tower’s tops being covered by a carpet of green, red and blue anemones, with their cavalcade of colourful fish.
