    Scuba dive at Koh Bon

    by kelnsha Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Koh Bon is located 20 km north of the Similan Islands. It has wall dives on its southwest corner and stepped ridges with magnificent coral gardens on its west side. If you are lucky, Leopard sharks, whitetip reef sharks, trevallies and large stingrays can be observed there. On the edge between both dive sites, manta rays sightings are the highlight. Good visibility up to 30-40 meters and moderate to strong currents are possible.

    I encountered manta rays eight to ten times during our first dive at Koh Bon on 14 Jan 2007.
