The biggest fish in the sea, harmless filter-feeder and graceful giant – the whale shark. Koh Tao is one of the few places in the world where you can SCUBA dive with them. Seen at Chumpon Pinnacle, the most frequent sightings are March – May and then Sept-Oct. But you never know – I saw two on the same day in a rainy December one year!

Grey reef sharks, schooling barracuda, clouds of fusilliers and curious bat fish will often obscure your view of the reef, where lurking in crevacies you will see porcupine puffers, blue spotted stingrays and moray eels. Whale sharks are often seen and Koh Tao is one of the few places in the world to watch these majestic creatures on SCUBA. You will be treated to the infamous Koh Tao Titan Trigger fishes, sea snakes and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see a turtle.

We dive all year around with the best conditions being March to October.
