Diving Locations - Koh Dok Mai

Koh Dok Mai
This small island is located on the way to Shark Point if you leave from Phuket and is considered one of the best wall dives in the area. Koh Dok Mai (meaning ‘Flower Island’ in Thai) is a huge limestone rock that rises steeply out of the sea and plunges straight down to the sea floor at 30m on the northern and southern tips.

Generally the dive is started on the east side drifting with the current, where divers follow a vertical wall covered in clams, hard corals and huge sea fans. There are two caves located on this side. For macro lovers Koh Dok Mai is probably the best Thailand has to offer, look out for Cleaner Shrimps, Seahorses, Ornate Ghost pipefish, numerous Nudibranchs and Sea Slugs, Frogfish and juvenile White-Eyed Moray Eels. Bearded Scorpion fish, Banded Sea Snakes, Common Lionfish, Forsters and Chevron Barracudas are also common residents.

The west side is a gently sloping hard coral reef with an abundance of colourful marine life decorating the underwater cliffs.
