West of Eden
A topographic dive site on the west side of Island 7 in the Similan Islands. It is centered around three huge rocks that are the highlight of the dive with coral slopes on either side. Soft corals, such as sea fans and sea hawks, are growing in the wall and in the deep area off the rocky coast. These areas are home to hard corals such as Hanaya rhinoceros and a wide variety of other creatures.
You will see ribbon eels, McCawkers flasher wrasse, and monohana shako in the deeper areas. You can also see macro organisms like giant red coral crabs and dwarf gobies in the Hanaya rhinoceros coral.
