Located to the north of Koh Tao the area around Mango Bay makes a nice relaxing dive. With depths ranging from 2 to 15 metres its ideal for beginners and snorkellers. Hard and soft coral formations here are plentiful along with a variety of sponges and clams. The bay is only accessible by boat and makes a popular snorkellers day trip. Drop in further around the northwestern tip of the island and drift into the bay area to avoid the crowds.
Things you can see here, hard coral, Fusiliers, Blue spotted stingrays, Titan triggerfish, Parrotfish, Angelfish, Sea horse and my Damsel fish. We do one dive here then after lunch choose a different dive site and return back to Koh Samui about 3.30pm.
