Location: Western Side of Koh Tao
Depth: Average 14m / Maximum 28m
Level of Diving: Beginner to Experienced Divers
Description: White Rock is a massive dive site. It has one main pinnacle, with a narrow 'canyon' passing down its side and is surrounded by a wide scattering of rocks and boulders. Several different dives are possible here, either enjoying the pinnacle from the north buoy line, or taking route across the corals from the south buoy line.
Marine Life Highlights: Lots to see - white eyed morays, titan trigger fish nesting, blue spotted stingrays and inquisitive splendor wrasses.
Corals: Around White Rock you can see an enormous mix of coral species, from hard brain, pore, table and stag horn species to soft mushroom / broccoli and whip varieties.
Other: This is without doubt the most exciting night dive location off Koh Tao. We get giant barracuda coming in for a night time feeding frenzy, snapping up rabbit fish and other small reef dwellers. You can also see stingrays swimming out from their normal hideaways, plus corals filter feeding in the currents.
