Koh Yawabon is part of a series of islands just 20 minutes by boat from Ao Nang Beach. It forms a string of 7 islands, just behind Koh Poda. This dive site's greatest pride is in the 50-meter long cave that sits at 5 to 12 meters depth which is best suited for more experienced divers. You will see clown fish, lion fish and the occasional leopard shark.
You must see the staghorn and brain corals that are anchored to the limestone that make up this sheltered island. Also expect amazing swim-throughs and caverns that are dotted around this island. On the reef you will find many species of reef fish including the titan and yellow margined triggerfish, dog-faced puffer fish, lunar wrasse and harlequin sweet lips. Do not be surprised to even catch a glimpse of reef sharks when you dive Koh See. This is an easy-to-manage and shallow dive site that is suitable and exciting for both Open Water training or for experienced divers on a relaxing day out.
This southern-most island of the Koh Ha series provides all divers with an exciting adventure. At about 5 meters depth on the southwest of the island, a cave opens up into a magnificent air pocket that towers to 30 meters above sea level. You can then exit this cathedral through another cave opening, at about 16 meters depth, that guides you to the east side of the island. Do not expect a single moment of lacklustre on this dive. You could catch sight of a motley of stringy sea whips, huge fans, large rays, turtles and leopard sharks during the dive.
