Thailand diving Koh Tachai Pinnacle or Twin Peaks, are a pair of submerged Thailand diving pinnacles located 500 metres south of Koh Tachai and are marked by a couple of buoys in the National Marine Park Similan Islands and Surin Island.READ MORE
KOH BON WEST RIDGE
Koh Bon Thailand is a granite islet situated some distance to the northwest of the Similan Islands, however it is still considered to be part of the Similan National Marine Park. A favourite dive site is the western ridge of the islet two hours away from the Similan Islands, which falls steeply away to the deep. Our Manta Queen fleet usually park in a bay located south of the ridge, where they have maximum protection against wind and strong waves.READ MORE
HIN LUANG KOH BON
Located 200 meters north of Koh Bon’s north ridge not far from Similan diving, this impressive deep Thailand pinnacle is worth a Thailand liveaboard dive even if it’s just to stare in awe at the breath taking topography of this Thailand diving underwater mountain.
This is one of the Thailand diving sites where you will be asked to do a negative scuba entry. The top of the diving pinnacle starts at 18m, so during the diving descent you are completely exposed to the currents.READ MORE
BOON SUNG WRECK
Sunk in 1985, this tin dragger went down in 20 meters of water, after somebody flushed the toilet and the water started rushing in and did not stop!
Over several years, it became colonized by thousands upon thousands of fish, glad to be lucky enough to have to an artificial reef in a vast expanse of sand. When the tsunami hit in 2004, it broke the structure into four main pieces, making it ever more interesting.READ MORE
