8 MILE ROCK

MAXIMUM DEPTH: 45M - MINIMUM DEPTH: 16M CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENT: ADVANCED OPEN WATER

AN UNDERWATER PINNACLE OVER 8 NAUTICAL MILES SOUTH FROM KOH LIPE

AS THIS EXCELLENT SITE IS FAR FROM THE MARINE PARK, WE ALWAYS PLAN FOR 2 DIVES, TO INCREASE THE CHANCE OF SEEING SOMETHING SPECIAL. THE TOP OF THE PINNACLE STARTS AT 16M; IT’S A DEEP DIVE AND CAN PASS QUICKLY, BUT EVEN IN A SHORT TIME THERE’S A LOT TO SEE. STRONG CURRENTS (MORE FISH!!) ARE FREQUENT AND CONDITIONS CAN BE CHOPPY ON THE SURFACCE; IF YOUR ARE A NERVOUS SWIMMER THIS SITE MAY NOT BE FOR YOU.

WE OFTEN COMPLETE THE PADI ‘’ DEEP DIVER’’ SPECIALITY COURSE HERE AS WELL AS THE '’MULTI LEVEL DIVER’’ SPECIALITY COURSE AND THE ADVANCE COURSE.
