Thailand :: Koh Lipe : Koh Adang

As currents can be strong in areas of the marine park, the best thing to do is utilise them, hence this dive is also called the "super highway drift". The dive is stared with a drop off at the nortern tip of Koh Adang, making a descent over a rocky slope to around 18m. In this area there is no current, as you swim around the coast where the 2 km deep channel between Koh Adang and Koh Rawi sits the current starts to pick up. The dive follows the coast of Adang, and upto 3km of drifting has been coverd in an hour. Along the way various stops are made, tucking into a shelterd bay on the way to look at the hard coral formations. Large schools of stingray have been seen feeding in the channel. Many types of reef fish can be seen, from red tooth and clown triggerfish to big eyed trevally.
