Welcome to Koh Tao - aka "The Rock"! Koh Tao offers some of the best diving in The Land Of Smiles! Several sites are offering excellent dives, including Chumphon Pinnacle which has an incredible volume of marine life, such as giant groupers, hundreds of schooling Barracuda, Tuna, Mackerel and the gigantic Whale Shark! The biggest fish in the ocean, the peaceful Whale Shark frequents Koh Tao's waters year-round and loves the company of curious divers. Like so many others, you too could get lucky! Koh Tao dive sites offer great visibility year round, with average clarity of 15 metres and up to 30 metres when conditions are perfect! The water temperature is 30C and currents are almost non-existent, allowing for super-relaxed, long dives. Dive sites around Koh Tao are easily accessed by their comfortable dive boat. Sites are between 10 and 40 minutes from the pier. Enjoy the sundeck, fruit and refreshments, spacious bathrooms and showers onboard. You will also meet Mr.White, the resident boat cat. :)
Base yourself on beautiful Koh Tao, in Chalok bay where turquoise waters meet rugged boulders and palm forests. Choose stillness and relaxation. In between yoga sessions or ocean dives, you can explore jungle hikes, snorkel off of the beaches, delight in healthy Thai cuisine, dance barefoot in the beach bars...or simply camp out at the swimming pool with a book. It's all up to YOU. But, if you need any recommendations, swing by the dive centre and there you will find a team with limitless ideas you probably never knew were even an option!"
Location – Chalok Bay
The island of Koh Tao is full of different bays and beaches, who all have their own special atmosphere. Where Sairee Beach is know for the young crowd and great parties, Chalok is the super laid back and quiet bay down in the South of the island. But don’t despair! Koh Tao is a small island, and easy to get around! Busy Sairee beach is only 5 minutes away by scooter or TukTuk. You can still join the party before you return to Chalok for a good night’s sleep. Chalok is also famous for snorkelling with small Blacktip sharks and turtles in Shark Bay!!
In the area of Chalok Bay, you’ll find a few lovely beaches for lazy afternoon sunbathing, plenty of delicious restaurants and cozy little beach bars too.
