West of Eden – Island 7

West of Eden is situated on the west side of Ko Pa- Yu AKA Island 7 this is a typical western Similan Island dive site comprising of giant granite boulders.

Nice Canyons

Although this is not as beautiful as it’s Island 7 eastern counterpart West of Eden is a very enjoyable dive. It is a great exploration dive with some nice canyons, giant sea fans and soft corals.

You should be able to find plenty of lobsters on this site amongst other interesting things including Red Fire Gobies, Cowrie Shells and Stonefish.
