Koh Bon Tachai diving day trip

Get the most out of your Khao Lak diving experience by joining a Koh Bon/ Tachai diving day trip or a trip to the Similan Islands or Richelieu rock with 2 dives in the crystal waters of the Andaman Sea.

Koh Bon is a remote small uninhabited island which belongs to the Similan Islands National Marine Park. It’s located about 20 kilometers north of Similan Island No 9. The island has the shape of a horseshoe and no beaches. It is made of volcanic rock and over time waves and currents have cut some holes right through the island where you can see the waves surge through them both above and below the surface.

Koh Bon

Around Koh Bon, there are a few different dive sites what also give you different types of diving (Wall, Slope, Reef, and Drift) and it is considered the number 1 place in Thailand to see Manta Rays.

The West Ridge is the favorite amongst most divers and located at the southwest corner of the island. The southern part is a step-down wall that falls down to 40+ meters and is covered in tiny colorful soft corals and beautiful sea fans of different sizes, shapes, and colors.
