Twins Rocks - dive site on Koh Tao Island for Night dive

27/08/2018

Most divers who take a course PADI Advanced Open Water Diver in the Scuba Birds center in Koh Tao choose the night dive as part of this program.

It is preferable to dive in the familiar and safe place. Often our ship goes to Nangyuan Island at the Twins. This dive site is very convenient for night navigation, consists of three rocks and each of them is at different depths:

The depth varies from 5 to 18 meters. Not all divers feel confident on the first night dive, so you can always choose the individual program and the most suitable route. For example, a sand zone without sea urchins and sharp corals. Night dive is a perfect test of your buoyancy and stability. During the night dive, you can meet stingrays that are actively looking for food, giant groupers hunting for smaller fish, hermit crabs, moray eels, pufferfish, sleeping triggers, shrimps and even turtles. Each diver gets one main and spare flashlight. Before diving, you will have a briefing with your PADI Instructor on signals, diving techniques, marine life and potential hazards. If you are a PADI Open Water Diver, then you can take one Adventure Night Dive. Explore the various dive sites of Koh Tao and get the most of it!

There are many different fish you can see on your night dive on Koh Tao – for example, Pufferfish
