Buoyancy World is an artificial dive site in Koh Tao island, located near NangYuan Island, the most popular dive spot in Thailand. The dive site was constructed on a sandy bottom at around 12m depth by Save Koh Tao organization in collaboration with a number of the island's dive centers to provide a training area for new divers, so they don't damage the natural reef when learning buoyancy control.
