“Mu Koh Angthong” has a wide range of U/W life, plus lots of interesting scenery, on a variety of quiet dive sites at the North tip of the National Marine Park – it’s the best destination for some serious snorkelling too.
A 2+ hour trip takes you to the Northern tip of this chain of islands, and there are a number of different spots to dive. This area remains our personal favourite, with the best range of fish and most other interesting stuff we’ve experienced in our years of diving in the Gulf of Thailand. Depths from shallow to 25m.
The dive sites are much quieter than those around Koh Tao, being just a bit too far away for most diving schools! You’ve also more chance to find the rarer creatures such as turtles or sea snakes; there’s usually something special to see on most dives.
The dive sites are not as deep as some of the locations that we visit, but they are also really scenic, with giant hydroids, extensive black and whip corals, with some excellent hard coral reef formations in the shallows.
They are also not so steep, with some more gently shelving bottom formations, with lots of special features such as swim-throughs, outcroppings, minor drop-offs and some shallow caves/caverns.
