Koh bon Dive Site Description & Map
[title type="h4" class="tfuse"]Koh bon Dive Site[/title] Koh Bon is part of Similan National Marine Park, located about 20 kilometers north of Similan Island 9. Koh Bon has no beaches and the shape is like a horse-shoe. Diving boats usually park in a bay located south of the ridge, where there is enough protection from the wind and strong waves. One favorite dive spot is the western ridge of the island, which has a wall that falls steeply to the deep sea to a depth of more than 35 to 40 meters. The walls are decorated with different colors of soft corals and a few hard corals with variety of marine life like boxing shrimp, giant moray eel, or small box-fish hiding is the crack of the wall. From the western ridge to the northeastern side are reefs that stretch along the island, which slopes from a depth of 10 meters down to a sandy bottom at 25 to 30 meters. The majority of corals here are hard corals including stag-horn coral, sparse coral, and brain coral. Koh Bon is also famous for its cleaning station that attracts Manta rays that need a little back scrub. We can see Mantas from November to May. However, they are more likely to be seen between January to April. Depth range: 5 - 30 m. Visibility: 10 - 20 m. Water temperature: 27 - 30 C Experience level: Beginner - Intermediate Current: Moderate to Strong Marine life: Manta rays, Eagle rays, Black tip reef shark, Octopus, Mantis shrimp, Clown fish, Box fish, Cuttle fish, Oriental sweet-lips, Sea snake, Lion fish, Yellow tail barracuda, and many more.
