Scuba Diving in the Similan Islands

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: The Ridge

Location: Pabu Island, Similan Islands, Thailand

Description: Rock and reef site

Depth: 8 - 30 metres (26 - 98 feet)

Visibility: 15 metres + (49 feet)

Rating: *****

The Ridge is a huge granite rock formation that extends down from the healthy hard coral reef to depths of 30 metres plus. The ridge itself is completely covered in gorgonian sea fans, whip corals and barrel sponges. In the shallows there is a crazy resident Hawksbill turtle who likes to come and say hello! A good spot to see anglerfish, mantis shrimp, rock mover wrasse and reef sharks.
