Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai

Koh Tachai is another 20 km north of Koh Bon has two interesting dive locations, one being the southern pinnacles and the other the eastern reef. Some fantastic boulder dive and swim throughs. Plenty of Leopard sharks and large rays are located at depth on the sandy bottoms and there often can be large schools of barracuda, travelly and snappers. And if you are good enough Frog fish can be located here although they are difficult to locate. Closed to divers between mid May and late October each year.

The best way to get to Koh Tachai is via one of the many liveaboards that travel up there through October to May.

During the start of the 2012 – 2013 liveaboard season there were excellent sightings the giant manta rays there.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety.
