Similan Dive Sites
This dive site is also called Barracuda point, but barracuda are rarely seen here, this is very close to Honeymoon Bay.The reef spreads across two islands, Similan Island 5 and Similan Island 6, which are two minor islands adjacent to one another.
This is a perfect site for searching for small creatures. Some rare species such as black-ray partner gobies can be spotted on the sand bottom.Razor wrasse and rock mover wrasse can also be seen here. In addition, angelfish, dragonets, pipefish, scorpion fish and varieties of colorful nudibranchs are commonly seen on the rocky reef. Furthermore, clown triggerfish, octopuses and sea snakes have been spotted.
In the mornings on the reef, you will find blue fin trevally, longnosed snapper, and goatfish hunting schools of tiny fish. Also, in the south, in the area with big boulders, sharks can sometimes be spotted. A number of big Kuhl’s stingrays can easily be seen. Turtles are common too. Ghost pipefish can occasionally be seen during March an April. Large school of batfish usually hang around the Tuna Wreck.
This site is suitable for beginner divers and for check dives.Macro photographers who dive slowly and are observant will be amazed with the abundance of pretty tiny creatures. Start your dive from the northeast buoy, follow the reef and end at the southern boulders, or alternatively, start from the southwest, drift along the reef and get picked up near the buoy, depending on both sea and weather conditions. If you explore the Tuna Wreck, keep an eye on your NDL time since this dive is deep.
