Chumphon Pinnacle is located 11km to the north west of Koh Tao and is considered by many, as the best dive site in the region. Made up from one huge granite pinnacle and a series of smaller ones, Chumphon's main difference to Sail Rock is that the pinnacle starts 14m underwater and drops off to over 36m.
Chumphon, like Sail Rock, is covered with sea anemones and pink anemone fish. You'll find shoals of barracuda and schools of Jacks and Bat Fish.
Some of the most impressive groupers in the Gulf can be found at this site as well as seasonal visits from large pelagic's such as Whale Sharks and Mantas.
