Tanote Bay is located on the Eastern Side of Koh Tao meaning its sheltered location makes it an ideal dive site when other dive sites of the island are affected by southwesterly winds. Easily identified by the massive granite boulder at its centre (also popular with cliff jumpers) the palm tree lined bay in the definition of idyllic tropical beauty. Under water the bay features some of the most beautiful coral gardens in the gulf of Thailand. It also boasts a selection of features that make it the perfect place to go for a dive, whether working towards a qualification with Davy Jones Locker’s experienced, multilingual team of instructors, such as the PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water diver courses, or just looking for an interesting and different fun dive. As well as the stunning coral formations surrounding the boulder there are a few cool things to see here. Practice your navigation skills by trying to find the wreck of a catamaran located a short swim from the rocky outcrops at the North side of the bay. Heading back towards the main bay is a somewhat smaller wreck (an abandoned motorcycle!) Heading back towards the mooring buoy takes you past one of the many artificial reef projects on Koh Tao. Produced in association with local marine conservation charity, Save Koh Tao, and PADI’s project AWARE the artificial reef area consists of a series of reef balls, designed to promote the growth of coral and is a great example of divers working towards a better marine environment.
