Scuba diving in The Lagoon
Koh Haa Lagoon is located between islands of Ko Ha Song, Ko Ha See and Ko Ha Sam. It features crystal clear waters, beautiful reef scapes, pristine corals and a large variety of macro marine life, as well as a small cave near Ko Ha Song, swim-through on Ko Ha See and a dramatic wall on Ko Ha Sam island, on the opposite side from the lagoon. This dive is suitable for divers of all levels of experience and snorkelers. This location is especially good as a training ground for beginners, but more experienced divers can explore beautiful soft corals on the outer pinnacles which drop down to over 30m/98ft. This site is a photographer's dream and a night dive not to be missed.
