Chumphon Pinnacles


The town of Chumporn is the gateway to the golden South. Many visitors know it as the departure port for the dive heaven of Koh Tao. In fact, Chumporn has more than a few attraction of its own, thanks to the picturesque islands in the Chumporn sea.Great diving and snorkelling spots are to be found around the islands of Koh Ngam Yai and Koh Ngam Noi. The undersea landscape of the Chumporn isles is remarkably varied with caves, rock piles and large coral colonies. Look out in particular for the famous black coral with shades of white, gold and yellow and several species of marine flower.

The dive sites surrounding the islands of Koh Ngam Noi, Koh Ngam Yai, and the outcrops of Hin Lak Ngam and Hin Pae, offer excellent diving opportunities. Divers can experience fascinating seabed configurations from coral gardens to rock piles and caves. The main attraction which adds color to the sea is the extravagance of the fish. Most divers find the need to record the amazing variety in their logs! This is a plankton rich sea and the fish life proliferate at a remarkable rate. Visibility varies according to tide and weather factors. On a favorable day, the visibility can be 20 metres but at low tides it can be reduced to only 8 to 10 meters. Hin Lak Ngam This dive site is located 1 1/2 hours away from Thung Wua Laen Beach. The landmark comprises two weather-beaten rock outcrops. Like all other outcrops, they serve as roosting areas for sea birds. As the boat approaches, these birds take flight. Sensing that the boat and divers are of no threat, they calmly resettle on the rocks.
