Weekly Diving Report – Last week of July 2020


It has been a while again since our last update on Koh Tao’s diving conditions and today we are back with a new report for you!

Quite typically the weather during this time of the year can be a little bit mixed. We usually see the tail end of the monsoon season on the West coast of Thailand and it can be a little bit windy in July and August. The great thing about diving on Koh Tao is that there are many sheltered bays all around the island. As you can see in our little best of video, we still had some fantastic dives during the last few days:

Our divers explored one of the quirkiest dive sites on Koh Tao, Junkyard. If you follow our reports, you will know that we dive Junkyard on a regular basis. For a good reason. Junkyard is an artificial reef project with lots of structures that not only aid with coral growth, but also provide shelter for all sorts of marine life.

Generally we find lots and lots of very curious fish around Junkyard, and this little friendly fellow has been seen by many divers before:


Equally as curious were there juvenile bat fish. We love how they seem to be born into some ‘oversized’ fins and slowly grow into a perfect triangle as they mature – almost like a little puppy dog growing into its oversized ears!


There is more to discover at Junkyard and we love these shots of some of the resident anemone fish, also commonly referred to as ‘Nemos‘!


Our divers also got to enjoy Chumphon Pinnacle which is one of the most stunning dive sites in Thailand!

During this time of the year it can be sometimes a little bit tricky to get out there due to the wind and waves. But as you can see clearly, once we get there, it is totally worth it!


Our divers had a great time exploring Chumphon Pinnacle with its huge schools of fish. And in between all the ‘Ooooohs‘ and ‘Aaaaahs‘ there was definitely also some time for a cheeky underwater selfie!


And on this note we would like to close our Weekly Diving Report for the final week of July and we hope to see you back here soon!
