Scuba Diving in the Similan Islands

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: East of Eden

Location: Pabu Island, Similan Islands, Thailand

Description: Hard and soft coral sloping reef

Depth: 5 - 35 metres (16 - 115 feet)

Visibility: 20 - 30 metres + (66 - 98 feet)

Rating: *****

East of Eden is home to the biggest coral head or 'bommie' in the whole of the Similans. It starts at around 25 metres with the top at 12 metres. The bommie is completely covered with soft coral with huge gorgonian sea fans in the deeper sections. I have seen anglerfish, ghost pipefish, many types of nudibranches, not to mention all the glass fish and blue fin trevallies hunting them. A great dive with amazing visibility all year round.
