Big School of Batfish at Chumphon Pinnacle
Koh Tao there has many dive sites where different kinds of Bat Fish may be encountered. Unfortunately, these interesting fish are seasonal, staying in one place for up to a few months before moving somewhere else. For most divers and especially photographers swimming alongside a school of batfish is a striking experience and a great opportunity to take close up shots. Sometimes these curious fish may `buddy up` with a diver, coming close to look at you and investigate what you are before rejoining their own group & of course One of the best dive sites to encounter these big schools of Tall-fin batfish (Platax teira) hovering over the rocks is Koh Tao's No 1 Divesite Chumphon Pinnacle.
