The Surin Islands Archipelago is located in the Andaman Sea – 60 km off the west coast of Phang Nga Province and 100 km north of the Similan Islands. Consisting of five islands: Surin Nuea Island, Surin Tai Island, Ri Island, Khai Island, and Klang Island, the large area inspires many travelers to visit the archipelago. Activities at Surin Islands are abundant, but of course, the most popular one is diving. Surin Island dive sites offer you an authentic experience of diving in some Southeast Asia’s most spectacular locations.
The best diving sites in Surin Islands certainly offer a memorable experience. Overflowing with sea life in their natural habitat, there are many species of fish that you can see. Thousands of different species live in the archipelago, including reef sharks, seahorses, ghost pipefish, and octopuses. Beyond these commonly found animals, divers will also have the chance to spot manta rays and whale sharks.
The islands offer more than just visuals of sea creatures. Scattered across the ocean floor are hard coral and soft coral. To be more specific, over 200 coral species are present in this habitat, and visitors are often impressed by the range of colorful corals found in the area.
Over a dozen spots are available in the Surin Islands diving area. The primary diving spots are at Surin Nuea Island and Surin Tai Island. For the most part, the southern tips of these islands will give you the greatest reward for your trip if you are primarily interested in corals. In a scuba session here, divers may reach depths of 5 to 22 meters, while commonly maintaining an average depth of 10 meters. Additionally, visibility reaches 9 to18 meters. A variety of hard corals permeate the seafloor, giving you a high chance of seeing large pelagic fish and dog-toothed tuna.
If you are looking for a livelier location, the Turtle Ridge diving spot at Sirun Tai Island may be your favorite. It is a long sloping reef on the east side of the southern half of the island. Divers may reach depths of 5 to 20 meters, with an average depth of 8 meters. The visibility is around 9 to18 meters. As the name implies, sea turtles can be commonly found here. Other sea creatures that can be seen here include batfish, Andaman fox faces, and yellow mask angelfish. Many species of hard coral can also be identified, although they are nowhere near as common as at Surin Nuea Island.
