Laem Thian Bay

The diving here is between 5m-24m. There is a small plateau and a little canyon. If you go down to the edge there can be quite a bit of current which normally flows north along the coast.

Lots of coral and fish in the shallow part! There is a chance to see Blacktip Sharks and Cobia. Starting at 8m down to 18m is a plateau with sponges and a good chance for sea turtles.
