Literally meaning “Five Island”, Koh Haa is emerging as one of the Andaman Sea’s top dive spots, with 12 different underwater locations scattered around limestone karst islands, each offering its own unique attractions. The shallow, crystal clear waters of Koh Haa Lagoon are filled with a dazzling diversity of tropical marine life making it ideal for first-time divers. Alternatively, more experienced divers can head to sites such as The Chimney, which is home to a complex cave system and creatures such as sea snakes and lionfish. Other local residents include rare ghost pipefish, octopuses, manta rays and even the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtle.
The must-see whale sharks are frequent visitors to the Andaman Sea between February and May. These graceful giants of the ocean, which can grow up to 12 metres in length, are regular occurrence to Koh Haa.
“You can see so much in a single dive at Koh Haa,” commented Saffron Kiddy, founder and CEO of Scubafish. “The excellent visibility across all the dive spots means you can experience immaculate corals and an unusually wide variety of marine life, including some of the largest fish in the sea.”
