Japanese Gardens - Thailand

Japanese Gardens is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Koh Tao, Thailand. This dive site has an average rating of 3.33 out of 5 from 3 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 51-60ft/16-18m. The average visibility is 71-80ft/22-24m.

This easily accessible dive in the shallow waters of Thailand’s Koh Tao Island is one everyone can enjoy, regardless of ability. It offers the chance to see a decent number of impressive creatures including stripy yellow butterfly fish, marbled emperor angelfish and red breasted wrasses among granite boulders festooned with soft and hard multi-colored corals. There’s also a mini-wreck here of a former dive boat, a recent addition. Turtles and giant pufferfish enjoy this spot, as do catfish, hundreds of yellow rabbitfish, boring clams and Christmas tree worms. Located off of scenic Koh Nangyuan, minutes away by boat from Koh Tao.

With 1000s of divers using Koh Tao sites the life is lacking and a lot of coral is dead/dying but good viz if you want to see what happens to the sea life after dragging your consoles and regs on the bottom
