Deep Reef

Huge boulders and rock formations, stunning soft corals. drift diving for the experienced. The island is really good, sometimes if is not to much current is posible go around the island.
You always see Polka Dot Nudibranch here, often turtles and sometime you can see whalesharks too. Its the only place where butterfly fish school too.
things to see: whale shark (if you luky), butterflyfish, bannerfish, grouper,bluespot stingray..

Shark island is not known for sharks but being called this people tend to get the wrong impression. The diving itself can be great or mediocre, depending on how you like to dive. If your lucky you can see a turtles or two, ive seen two black tips on the very small side but debatable it’s the same fellow. It offers a brilliant multi-level dive and normally on the north you will come across a large school of barra. Definitely not for the novice, the current can be brutal and when it is, always pushes you further out into the blue. Mixed with the viz also being atrocious it makes for some great challenging diving if your experienced and with some mates.

When we jumped in, the visibility was terrible, there was 5 dive masters in our group and we could hardly keep ourselves together. But then all of a sudden, we went a little shallower and it was the clearest water I have ever seen! It felt like we were swimming in air! It was absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend going.

Shark Island is ok but do not expect to dive with sharks... Koh tao is definitely dying because of the hue amount of divers theses past years... but still nice for a OW course or discovering scuba diving
