Dive Site Name :  Chumphon Pinnacle

Every Divers Favourite Perhaps the best dive site on Koh Tao and the most popular one that all divers want to dive is Chumphon Pinnacle and it is also the deepest and largest of the dive sites around the island. Chumphon Pinnacle is one long, large granite pinnacle, the top of which sits at around 14 metres below the surface. The tops of the rock pinnacle are completely carpeted with sea anemones full of Pink Anemone fish hiding from predators within the protective reach of the sea anemones stinging cells. Chumphon Pinnacle dive site lies in a north- south direction and as you descend if you look across to the bottom of the buoy line you will see schools of Batfish just above the top of the pinnacle.
Huge Schools of Fish As you swim over the top of the pinnacle on a descent, there is a lot of interesting marine life hidden in the crevices and holes including White Eyed Moral eels, small shrimps, crabs and if you look closely you can see Scorpion fish too. At its best with clear visibility, Chumphon Pinnacle is a spectacular sight with huge schools of Trevally and Snapper swirling around like a silver tornado You will also see large numbers of Juvenile Yellow-Tailed Barracuda, Fusiliers, Rabbit fish and Big-Eyed Jacks that are all hunting. Barracuda Rock If you swim south-west off the main Pinnacle to Barracuda rock, you will see Marbled Groupers lurking in the shadows at deeper depths and huge schools of Chevron Barracuda swimming between the pinnacles. Look closely and you will see lots of Macro life including Banded Boxing Shrimp hiding in the small crevices and look even deeper into the cracks to discover Banded and Janns Pipefish. Chumphon Pinnacle is the dive site where we get the most Whaleshark sightings and if you are lucky you may get to see more than one on the same dive.
