With a day to spare and some nice sunny weather, I went diving to Koh Tao. Koh Tao is around an hour and half away by fast boat and is a very very popular island for diving.
I booked my trip with Easy Divers, at their shop in Bophut – Fishermans Village. Cost was 4500 ThB, that included pickup from outside Coconut Laguna, breakfast, all equipment, lunch, snacks, two dives, dinner and return to Coconut Laguna.
There were eight of us on the boat plus four instructors/divemasters. The majority of the divers were Russian. One dive instructor was Russian, two Germans and a Thai lady.
First dive was at White Rock, a relatively nice and easy dive with plenty of pretty scenery. It was also clear how popular Koh Tao is, as there were 13 dive boats there. Visibility was around 8 meters or so, and max depth didnt get much past 16m. Dived with a shorty wet-suit, but could easily have dived without, the water being soooo warm. Second dive after lunch was at Mango Bay. The depth was around 10 meters and the dive was parallel to the shore swimming along the edge of the coral. There were some spectacular scenery. Again visibility was around 8-10 meters. Below are some photos from Mango bay dive.
