Variety of Dive Sites on Koh Tao
Koh Tao offers various dive sites. Most of the diving sites are located around the famous Koh Nang Yuan island, thus within close range from the Diving center. Japanese garden dive site, located on one side of Koh Nang Yuan island, is an easy dive, 15m deep, with beach access and massive diversity in marine life. The Twins Pinnacle dive site is on the other side of Koh Nang Yuan island, between 5m and 20m deep. It is the most popular dive site, protected by the island. Twins Pinnacle dive site offers the best diving conditions.
Wreck diving is the very definition of adventure. The HTMS Sattakut is a WW2 Wreck between 18 and 30 meters deep and is another very accessible dive site from Koh Tao island. You should consider visiting this Wreck!
Chumphon Pinnacle is a fantastic dive site between Koh Tao and Chumpon, from 15m to 40m deep. Chumphon Pinnacle offers all the diversity of Thailand's marine life, including Wale Sharks, if you are lucky.
Coral Grand Divers propose a day trip to Sail Rock on Saturdays. Sail Rock is a famous diving spot between Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. Contact us to include Sail Rock in your diving trip.
How difficult is Scuba Diving on Koh Tao?
Thailand scuba diving is generally not considered challenging. Koh Tao has the most accessible conditions of all Thailand diving destinations. Koh Tao dive sites are not subject to strong currents, thermoclines, or any sudden changes in water temperature or visibility. Thus diving on Koh Tao is very accessible, whatever your diving experience.
How Safe is diving on Koh Tao?
Koh Tao has world-class emergency response and rescue teams, and while not used regularly, this is an essential part of safety planning. There is also a recompression chamber located less than 2 hours away – much closer than you'll find at other popular diving destinations in Thailand and worldwide.
Koh Tao offers the highest standards regarding diver safety and diver training. The island certifies over 80,000 divers yearly across the many different PADI courses on Koh Tao. Safety measures are in place and followed. PADI has an active presence on the island. Our PADI 5 Star Dive Center is regularly visited by regional managers for evaluations and to keep us up to date with the latest training standards and developments. Plus, our Koh Tao PADI dive team is hand-picked to include some of the region's most professional and experienced PADI instructors.
There are many different ways to get to Koh Tao. If you have time and are on a budget, you can get an overnight bus from Bangkok to Chumphon and a high-speed Catamaran to Koh Tao, which takes two hours.
If you are short of time, there are two flight routes. First, you can fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui or from Bangkok to Surat Thani. Both with a short boat journey across. If you prefer to avoid the bus rides, you can take an overnight train with a similar route.
See our detailed page about How to go to Koh Tao.

IMPORTANT! -Flying after Diving
When planning your diving trip and your journey toward your destinations, always remember that you must not fly directly after scuba diving. It accentuates the risk of having decompression sickness.
The PADI guidelines are to NOT FLY during a 12 hours interval after a single dive and 18 hours after multiple dives. As often when it comes to scuba diving, take a conservative approach to safety, and whenever possible, avoid flying the next 24 hours after a dive.
If you intend to do multiple dives on different days during your trip, consider buying your own dive computer, as it will calculate the optimal time to fly based on your diving history.
Even more than other outdoor sports, diving is weather- and sea-dependent. Be aware that some sites might be inaccessible on certain days and that diving trips might be canceled due to dangerous conditions.
Luckily, Thailand has a fantastic climate almost all year round and this happens very rarely.
