White Rock


This is one of the more popular dive sites situated on the west coast of Koh Tao. White Rock is quite a narrow and extremely long dive site which is perfect for beginner and experienced scuba divers alike. With depths ranging from 2 to 26 meters this is a very diverse dive site, and the marine life found here is no different.


As you descend down one of three buoy lines you'll see large shoals of Yellow Tail Barracuda, and for the lucky diver, small groups of Squid can be seen at around 6 or 7 meters although good luck getting close enough for a picture. Hawksbill Turtles can sometimes be found at the southern most point of this site eating the soft corals which are in plentiful supply. Not paying much attention to the scuba divers, photo opportunities are excellent and a great souvenir.


Butterfly Fish, Parrot Fish, and the Blue Ringed Angel Fish are colourful companions on this site as well as the Red Breasted Splendor Wrasse. One fish to keep a particular eye out for is the Titan Trigger Fish. Very beautiful, but also very territorial, these are notorious for tenaciously defending their nest from any that pass too closely. This dive site has many smaller rocks and overhangs dotted in and around the main site giving natural protection to Blue Spotted Sting Rays, and White Eyed Moray Eels. Sometimes used as a second dive site, White Rock will put a fitting end to a fabulous days diving.
