Paradise for macro photograpy as it is called...
Koh Doc Mai is such an amazing place to dive in, if you're lucky enough to get the best conditions and not too many dive boats at the same time.

ive site was a seahorse, there are some living in various places so if your guide knows where to find them you will end the dive with a huge smile on your face. Out in the blue you might see bigger fish, turtles, groups of squid and of course schools of fish just swimming by. If you go there for a night dive look up to see hunting squid. After being there many times I know how different conditions might surprise you while diving there, from excellent visibility and hardly noticable current to 3 m vis and a current so strong that it's a crazy drift dive.
