Dive Sites


KOH RANG NATIONAL MARINE PARK

 
 


3 FINGER REEF

Maximum depth 15 meters.


Three Finger Reef is a shoal with a mooring buoy on the north east side of the National Marine Park. Schools of Spotted Snapper and lots of Groupers can be found living in and around the corals. This is also home to one of the Marine Park's Staghorn coral restoration projects, so please feel free to pick up a broken piece of Staghorn coral and plant it somewhere so it can continue to grow on the reef.
Seal faced, Masked and Giant Puffer fish call this reef their home. Bamboo sharks can also be found and maybe even the occasional Cuttlefish. Keep an eye out for the numerous Nudibranch and Scorpion fish making their home along the rock walls on this dive site or find some Stone fish on the sand.

THE PINNACLES

Maximum depth 28 meters.


The Pinnacles is an amazing site for experienced divers. Hiding just below the waves out in the open water, two rock towers stand parallel and stretch towards to surface from a depth of 12 meters. At the Pinnacles' base you will find massive boulders precariously perched on top of each other, providing countless places for marine life to thrive.
From large adult Great Barracudas to the smallest Nudibranch, this site is one to not miss. Eagle Rays, Turtles and Reef sharks can occasionally be seen here. There are some fun swim-throughs and places to take beautiful photos but be careful and watch out for Crown of Thorns and Scorpion Fish.

HTMS CHANG WRECK & LOCAL DIVE SITES

 
 


HIN LUK BATH

Maximum depth 20 meters.


Directly west of Bang Bao you will find the tiny rocky island called Hin Luk Bath. Below the waves the site is a nursery, baby Barracuda, Fusiliers and Silver Bat fish all come here for protection. The schools are large and for most of your dive you will find yourself swimming right through them. Pieces of an old wooden shipwreck can be found in and among the rocky outcrops as well as Turtles, Moray Eels and Stingrays. The rocky landscape of this site provides many places for divers to take their time and find creatures hiding in and among the corals.

HTMS CHANG

Maximum depth 31 meters.


The HTMS Chang wreck is a ‘must dive’ for anyone diving in Thailand. The HTMS Chang started its life as a US tank landing craft and was commissioned in 1944 as the USS Lincoln County (LST-898) and used in campaigns in South East Asia during the ’40s and ’50s before being sold to the Thai navy in 1962. It was decommissioned, stripped of all contaminants and deliberately sunk on the 22nd of November 2012 in order to create an artificial reef. The trip to the wreck takes only 40 minutes by a Scubadawgs dive boat from Bang Bao pier. The HTMS Chang is 100 meters long, positioned perfectly upright on the sandy seabed at 31 meters depth with its main deck at 24 meters depth. It is teeming with marine life and whale sharks are regular visitors. There have been sightings of Reef sharks and Angler fish. It is a dive for divers certified to 30 meters. For Open Water divers we offer the option of doing a RAID Deep 30 dive or a PADI Deep Adventure Dive for only 1100 Baht extra. The HTMS Chang is also very challenging for experienced certified wreck divers that can penetrate deep into the wreck.
