Ao Yai, Koh Tachai

The Tachai Pinnacle is a rocky dive site with lots of boulders, but between each crevice there are lots of gorgonians and powerful fan corals in all colors.

An incredible number of fish schools can be found here. From manta to whale sharks, everything is possible. Barracuda shoals have been here for many years and the batfish are never missing.
