The location

The diving site South West Rock, also called South West Pinnacle is sometimes considered as the second best dive site of koh tao as it's suitable for Open Water divers and Advanced divers (levels 1 & 2). South West Pinnacle comprises many small pinnacles with a larger one in the centre. Within its weak to average currents, dive here and you should find scorpion fishes, yellow tail Barracudas, Leopard Sharks and Grouper. If you're one of the lucky ones, you could meet the great whale shark and extremely rarely, people spotted whales.
