North Andaman Sea
ANEMONE REEF  [ ANDAMAN SEA ]
Anemone Reef is a collection of rocky plateau. As you might guess, the top part of the reef is smothered in sea anemones; there are many resident clownfish, shrimps and Porcelain Crabs. Elsewhere on the reef you will find large clusters of soft corals and enormous gorgonian seafans. At its deepest point a solitary rock is home to a group of juvenile moray eels. For experienced divers only.

HIN DAENG / HIN MUANG  [ ANDAMAN SEA ]
One of the best dive spots in Thailand (truly a world-class dive site). The 2 rocks with vertical walls dropping straight down to 50-60m are completely covered with hard and soft coral, sea fans, sea anemones and attract large school of jacks as well as fusiliers, tuna and barracuda. Hin Daeng is also perhaps the only place in Thailand where Grey reef sharks can be seen in schools of up to 15 sharks. The richness and variety of pelagic fish compares to that found at Richelieu Rock, particularly for the sight of whale shark.

KOH TACHAI  [ ANDAMAN SEA ]
A pair of coral-encrusted pinnacles, which are connected by a long, rocky ridge. Currents, which are extremely rich in nutrients, sweep this site and plankton, resulting in outstanding growths of sea fans, whip corals and other filter feeders. This is also a good area for Leopard Sharks and Stingrays, but probably the most over-whelming attraction is the schooling fish action.

LOSIN  [ GULF OF THAILAND ]
A remote reef located approximately 100 km east of Narathiwat (province of the south of Thailand) in the warm, clear, furtile area where the Gulf of Thailand meets the deeper blue waters of the South China Sea. Losin is a tiny island with an old light house giving warning signal to passing boat as there is no other island in the radius of 100 square kilometres. Big fishes are abundant because of the distance from the shore and understroyed reef. A pristine example of a healthy reef, the marine life here is amazing, with black tip reef shark and bow mouthed guitar fish patrolling the deeper waters down to 40 metres and wher giant mantarays and even whale sharks mingle with the visiting divers among the huge table corals.

SIMILAN ISLANDS MARINE NATIONAL PARK  [ ANDAMAN SEA ]
The Similans can certainly lay claim to being one of Asia's top dive destinations with over 20-30 different dive sites. East-facing dive sites feature gently sloping reefs and drop-offs with impressive gardens of sea anemones, flourishing hard and soft corals, and teeming fish populations. Western dive sites are quite the opposite. Here, giant granite boulders tumble down to the seabed to depths of 40m or more. Strong currents keep the gaps between the boulders free from build-ups of sand, leading to the development of a network of tunnels, archways and caverns that provide exciting swimthroughs. The currents also provide nutrients for masses of gorgonians, crinoids, sea fan and lush soft corals. Pelagic fish such as whale shark, reef shark, manta, eagle rays, barracuda, travelly, tuna and jacks are frequently observed.
