Day Trip to Pattaya - Samaesan

Pattaya is a vibrant coastal city approximately 1 1/2 hours east of Bangkok by road.  Diving at Pattaya and the surrounding areas is a year-round activity. It is a popular jump-off point and a regular destination for daytrips run by most Bangkok-based dive shops.

Pattaya Diving SitesThe Near Islands - A group of small islands just off the coastal beach of Pattaya approximately 30 minutes by boat is the famous dive sites for beginners. These are Koh Larn, Koh Krok and Koh Sak.
Visibility: 5-10 metres
Depth: 5-20 metres
Features: year-round diving, hard and soft corals, flatworms, nudibranches and other tropical fishes.

The Far Islands - Further from the mainland about an 1 hour ride, Koh Rin, Koh Phai and Koh Man Wichai offer better visibility and often stronger currents.
Visibility: 5-15 metres
Depth: 5-20 metres
Features: Hard corals, unusual rock formations and abundance of sponge, anemones, feather stars, seafans, pupperfish and seahorses. Koh Man Wichai is particular famous for turtles.

Pattaya's Best  Wrecks - The Hardeep Wreck is considered to the be the best wreck dive and stores offer one-day and two-day trips to the site. Located between Ko Samaesan and Ko Chuang, the Hardeep is a 42 meter-long Indonesian freighter that sank in 1942 and now rests on her side in 21-27 meters of water. As with all wrecks, one of the main reasons people dive on them is because of the eerie emotions they experience when the ship first becomes visible through the gloom and the incredible amounts of marine life.

Today the wreck is still and tranquil-except for the masses of tropical fish who have made this disaster their home. It is also home to colonies of fan corals and large barrel sponges. Although visibility is not dependably clear here-averaging about the same the in rest of the Gulf of Thailand-the prolific marine life and the possibility of making a safe penetration into the wreck makes the dive one of the most inviting around.

The second popular wreck is the Bremen Wreck located near the village of Sattahip South of Pattaya city. Although there has less and less profile to this 300 foot steel ship every year due to natural deterioration, the wreck attracts large schools of yellow tail snappers and barracuda especially during slack tide. An excellent deep dive for an advanced course, the wreck rests at about 25 meters and visibility ranges from around seven to ten meters.
