Chumphon Pinnacle

Improve

Chumphon Pinnacle is a dive site consisting of a large granite pinnacle and several smaller ones near it. The top of the pinnacles lie 14 meters below the surface, while their bottom goes to 36 meters deep.

The top of the main pinnacle is covered in pink anemones.

Cumphon Pinnacle is home to a variety of marine life, from critters such as shrimps to reef fish such as the anemonefish and the batfish and to larger fish like the batfish, barracuda, giant groupers, scorpionfish, or the moray eel. Razorfish, trevallies or boxfish can also be found here.

Chumphon Pinnacle is also a fantastic spot for diving with whale sharks (the world's largest fish) in season, meaning the spring months between March and May and late summer/early autumn, from August to October.

The visibility at Chumphon Pinnacle is excellent, and the current is mild to nonexistent. All this combined with the fact that the main pinnacle has numerous holes and cracks to peka through, makes for a truly unique and exciting dive.
