One of the best dives sites in the Andaman Sea. Masses of large schools of jacks, barracudas and snappers as well as small stuff such as seahorses and pineapplefish. Also one of the best chances to see whale sharks. 2013-2014 was an excellent year for whale shark and manta ray sightings in the Similans. Roll on next season!
