Scuba diving in Stonehenge
This site features four different types of reefs and is located about 500m south of Koh Talang. The main part of the site is a submerged plateau with 4 jagged granite pinnacles that rise up to 2m/6ft from the surface. Other parts of the dive include a slope with scattered boulders, a sponge garden which features numerous rocks encrusted with colorful sponges, and a sandy area with many small coral bommies growing towards the southeastern side of the dive. It is an excellent site for underwater and macro photographers.
When to go
Diving is available all year long with the water temperature varying from 26C/78F to 29C/84F.
What to see
Resembling Stonehenge in the U.K., these upright slabs of rock play host to schools of basslets of many colors, damsel fish, and other small reef fish. Also, large healthy table corals, several types of hard corals as well as soft corals, gorgonian sea fans and various species of anemone can be seen. While on this dive, visitors have a chance to observe barracudas, rays, trevallies, tuna, leopard sharks, whitetip, blacktip and even a whale shark along with large groupers, huge moray eels, seahorses, ghost pipefish and other reef fish.
