FAQ / Frequently asked Questions

Is it better to dive at Koh Phangan or Koh Tao?

Its 2 different islands. The best dive site is SAIL ROCK. Sail Rock is closer from Koh phangan than from Koh Tao. From Koh Phangan we go diving everyday to Sail Rock when in Koh Tao they just go diving at Sail Rock sometimes. There is less divers around Koh Phangan hence its much more relaxed. The reefs around Koh Phangan are really nice for diving and snorkeling.

In Koh Tao you can see Sharks . At Sail Rock you can see whale sharks.

When can you dive with whale sharks?

You can dive with whale sharks all the year. There are wild and come around the dive sites to dive with the divers when ever THEY feel to do it. They are very gentle and relaxed. There is no danger at all. We respect a distance of 5 meters from them to avoid touching them but often they come closer. Whale sharks come to Sail Rock around full moon because around full moons there are more plancton in the water so more food for them.
