Pattaya Scuba diving

Wreck and coral diving

Pattaya Scuba diving has 2 sets of islands known as the near and the far islands to the local dive centers, both sets of islands offer Shipwreck and coral diving for beginner Samae San scuba divingdivers to experienced diver levels.

Pattaya scuba diving has over 20 coral dive sites and 4 great ship wrecks. The coral sites depths vary from 2 metres to 25 metres with interest.

The premier dive sites on the far islands are Koh Rin with it’s North and South pinniacles, Koh Man Wichai with her walls and coral pattaya scuba divingfinger formations and Koh Klueng Badan West and East side.

Schooling fusiliers, batfish, angel fish, butterfly fish, puffer fish, moray eels, bamboo sharks and turtles are a common sight. Viz 5 metres to 25 metres but usually averaging 5 to 15 metres.

The near islands premier dive sites are Koh krok which is great for drift diving and night diving, Koh sak which does have tourist boat traffic in the morning but is a good afternoon dive site and Lam thong on the main island Koh larn.

Even though the far islands usually offer better coral dive sites, it’s not always the case with the viz, they are a bit seasonal to each other which one has the best viz.

The near islands are where you are almost guaranteed to see large hawk-bill turtles as well as all the fish life you see on the far islands, Viz 5 metres to 20 metres depending on the season but usually averaging 5 metres to 12 metres. Here’s just a couple of the PADI courses and specialty’s that are great to do on the Pattaya near or far coral dive sites; PADI Discover scuba diving (for first time divers), PADI Open water course (for people who want to be a certified diver), PADI Navigation Specialty, Photography specialty.
