Diving Koh Phangan

Although not as rich as nearby Koh Tao when it comes to the variety of marine life, Koh Phangan still offers a number of excellent diving opportunities, especially for beginners. There are several dive schools on the island providing PADI training courses and boats take divers on trips to dive the best reefs and underwater walls in the region.

Directly off the north coast, Koh Ma is a spectacular reef that surrounds a small offshore island. The site offers a wide variety of colourful marine life and is a great place to learn scuba skills while enjoying the underwater scenery. Another pretty location is Haad Yao, located further south of Koh Ma. This dive site boasts a wide,   sloping reef that runs along the beach. Haad Yao is home to a diverse range of interesting marine life and brightly coloured corals. Finally there's Koh Tae Nok, just a short boat ride from the main port of Thong Sala. This modest island boasts far more marine life than you would expect with a broad range of colourful corals and vibrant underwater communities of fish and of coral and marine life. scuba koh phangan

For more experienced divers and those with time to explore the underwater world more thoroughly, Koh Tao is only an hour by speedboat from Koh Phangan and offers yet more marine adventures. On the way you can also visit Sail Rock, which is famous as a gathering place for Whale Sharks, one of the ocean's most impressive yet harmless creatures. With so much to discover under the surface of the sea, visitors to Koh Phangan often find they extend their stay on the island to fully experience this incredible natural world, right on the island's doorstep.

Check the instructor's level of experience, ask about equipment and make sure the courses on offer are internationally recognised. There are less choices on Koh phangan that Koh Tao, but this makes the task of selecting a dive school less daunting and most of the operators on Koh Phangan are professional and trustworthy.
