The Gulf of Thailand offers divers an amazing range of diving destinations.

Similian Islands

Ask anyone who knows about the region and the first place they will mention is the Similan Islands. This small collection of islands set in the beautiful Andaman Sea are the jewel in the Thailand diving crown. Topography ranges from stunning rock formations and beautiful age-old gorgonian sea fans to colourful corals brimming with exotic marine life. World class dive sites pepper the area such as West of Six and Elephant Head Rock which are among the finest in the country and as good as anywhere in Asia. One of the best features of diving in the Similan Islands is its 2 distinct types of dive site – deep water boulder formations and pretty coral gardens.

Koh Ha and Koh Rok

This Thailand diving region is located in the southern Andaman Sea between the Phi Phi Islands and Hin Daeng – Hin Muang.

Koh Ha, which means ‘5 islands’ in the Thai language, is a tiny cluster of islets located 25 km west of Koh Lanta Island. The channels that separate the islands are over 50 metres deep and the water is usually clear with good visibility.

25 kilometres south of Koh Ha is Koh Rok, which are twin islands known as Koh Rok Nai and Koh Rok Nok and are separated by a thin 15 metre deep channel. All these islands are situated within the Mu Koh Lanta National Marine Park and are uninhabited, boasting stunning unspoiled beaches. The diving at Koh Rok is on a coral reef, one of the prettiest and well-preserved for diving in Thailand.
