Scuba Diving Pattaya, Thailand
Dive Site: Koh Rin
Location: Pattaya Islands, Thailand
Description: Granite rock
Depth: 20 metres max (65 feet) at North Rock, 16 metres max (52 feet) at South Rock
Visibility: 10 - 15 metres (30 - 50 feet)
The North Rock is a great site off Pattaya. You can circumnavigate the granite rock, taking approximately one hour on air. The best section is a coral wall which goes down to 17m.
Sealife: turtles, moray eels, porcupinefish, batfish, barracuda and nurse sharks and the occasional bamboo shark. A giant pufferfish was spotted here on one of my dives.. wow !!! Pity I didnt have a camera!
At South Rock circumnavigate the rocky outcrop. The wall on the south side drops down to 16m. Parrotfish and stingray are present, barracuda too.

Quite a pleasant dive one afternoon, plenty of life as Anthony said above me, including one he missed: there are a few beautiful blue spotted rays hiding in little holes and beneath the coral. A great way to kill an afternoon if you want a nice easy and enjoyable dive. We dived here in the Christmas/ New Year period of 2005.
