Scuba Diving in the Similan Islands
Dive Site: Elephant Head Rock
Location: Similan Island, the Similan Islands, Thailand
Description: Boulder site
Depth: 70 metres max (230 feet)
Visibility: Normally 20 metres and above (65 feet)
This is a fantastic site. With over 400 dives in the Similans its still my favourite. From the 4 swim-throughs at 10m to the larger ones at 26m there are some to suit everyone. Drop down over the 40m ledge past the fire gobies and you will find large blue spot stingrays in the sand almost every time and occasionally the odd shark. Lots of schooling with some big trevallies and loads of nudi's higher up on the rocks if you have a keen eye. A fantastic site.
