Dive Spots: Koh Kom

There’s a tremendous diversity of corals and marine life here. Off the eastern face you find a wall. To the west this gradually declines into close formations of large rocks. Back along the reef-slope itself, at a steady depth of 11m, a ribbon like effect is created by a series of brain corals which have anchored themselves into the limestone.

The coral assortment changes towards the site’s western section where the familiar hard species are replaced by bubble corals and zoanthids. These continue back to the western apex, which is highlighted by a spectacular shelved slope of leaf corals. There’s a fair representation of reef fish around Koh See, including titan and yellow-margined triggerfish, moorish idols, dog faced pufferfish, lunar wrasse and harlequin sweetlips.
