Day trip diving Koh Samui
There is no worthwhile diving around the coast of Koh Samui, you need to head on over to Koh Tao. We recommend that you stay on Koh Tao or on Nangyuan Island and do your diving from there. You’ll be closer to the dive sites and it’s cheaper.
However if you already have your accommodation arranged on Koh Samui you can do day trips by speedboat to Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Angthong Marine Park.
The best dive sites are Chumphon Pinnacle, Sail Rock, South West Pinnacles and the HMS Satakurt Wreck. For most of the other Koh Tao dive sites, for example Japanese Gardens, Mango Bay, Lighthouse Bay we recommend snorkeling.
