Koh Tao is located in the Gulf of Thailand, the smallest of the three main islands that make up the Samui Archipelago. This small island literally lives and breathes scuba diving. Koh Tao, or ‘Turtle Island’ (in Thai ‘Koh’ means ‘island’ and ‘Tao’ means Turtle), certifies more scuba divers a year than anywhere else in the world.
Koh Tao is generally considered to be one of the cheaper places around for people to get certified or ‘Get my PADI’ as most backpackers refer. The island also offers some of Thailand’s best dive sites. Combined with the laidback vibe and unique ambience, Koh Tao is fast becoming a top attraction on all travellers’ bucket lists.
The dive sites here are varied with several local bays providing excellent training conditions – nice flat sandy bottoms, very little environmental conditions offering a variety of marine life and coral.
The deeper outlaying pinnacles give divers the opportunity to see large schools of fish, some of the larger pelagic fish and of course Whalesharks. Chumphon Pinnacle and Sail Rock are the most famous dive sites here.
