Dive boats from Phuket Thailand takes you to the dive sites with most beautiful coral gardens, unexplored tropical islands, clear blue ocean and deserted soft white power sand beaches.
| Running from the southern tip of Island 5 to the western side of Island 6, Anita's Reef is a perfect introduction to diving at the Similan Islands.
The reef consists of a mixture of hard and soft coral pinnacles, white sand areas and in the southern, deeper section, massive granite boulders.
When currents are present here they are usually mild, ideal for taking a closer look at some of the coral pinnacles which start at around 5m.
Shallow coral gardens comprise huge pore and staghorn corals with small pinnacles.
Colorful corals are scattered along white powdery sand, creating beautiful natural scenery.
A big outcrop located on the southeast makes this dive site unique and attracts many photographers.
From the sand bottom base at 20 meters to the top of the rock at 12 meters, this fantastic rock is surrounded by various colourful soft corals, gigantic sea fans, and many species of hard corals.
“Hin Muan Deaw” directly translates to “whole roll (of film) rock”, as one can use up to an entire roll of film solely on this on this rock. It really is a must see.
At the south side of Anita’s reef are gigantic boulders that extend from island 5 and continue southward.
These gigantic boulders lie at 30 to 35 meters on a sand bottom, and have formed a channel that divers can swim through.
In 2003, the Similan National Park authorities sank a 12 x 30 meter fiberglass fishing boat in the area to create a new diving spot.
The Tuna Wreck, as its known, is located near the southwest of island 5, just past the southeast corner, and is marked by a buoy.
The wreck sits on the sand bottom just beyond the reef edge, with the depth varying from 40 meters at the deepest to 28 meters at the top of the wreck.
