CHUMPHON – A JEWEL OF SCUBA DIVING IN THE GULF OF THAILAND


Diving around Chumphon can be summed up in a very easy statement: as good as Ko Tao – only without the hordes of scuba divers. The reefs are spectacular, the dive sites have very distinct characteristics and the Prab wreck is almost identical in design to her sister ship, Ko Tao’s Sattakut wreck.

The dive scene of Chumphon is closely knit and offers very personal service. It is surprising that this dive region is widely neglected by divers visiting from overseas. The Thai diving community has long embraced diving at Chumphon accessible with night trains and buses out of Bangkok and no need to ferry over to an island resort.
