Diving Twins Dive Site Koh Tao
Are you looking for a dive site that has everything? If you are then Twins is the right choice for you. Since there is so much to explore when it comes to this dive site, the possibilities are endless.
Take a tour around the 3 main pinnacles, or take the road less travelled and head along the coast of Koh Nangyuan.
Where is Twins PInnacle Dive Site?
Yes, that’s right, Twins is located just off the beach of Koh Nangyuan on the west side. Now you can enjoy both points of interest all at the same time.
The dive site consists of two main pinnacles with a somewhat smaller one sitting slightly deeper. The first pinnacle is positioned quite close to the beach.
Its depths range from 8-11 metres around the base, while its highest point reaches up to 5 metres. Enjoy your safety stop while observing a colourful rainbow of Christmas tree worms.
Marine Life at Twins Dive Site
The middle pinnacle gets slightly deeper and reaches a maximum depth of around 16 metres on its western side. One feature you do not want to miss, is an arched swim through on the northern point of the rocks.
If you continue further west, you will hit the final pinnacle sitting up to 18 metres. This area is great for all the macro lovers out there.
There are plenty of crevices with goby’s, shrimps, Nudibranch, pipe fish and lots more. Since the pinnacles are all quite small, you can really go slow and enjoy the view.
What Happened to Nemo?
Oh…and did you ever wonder what ever happened to Nemo? He has retired just slightly south of the middle pinnacle. He’s used to the paparazzi, just give him his space.
Blue Ringed Angelfish
He resides in the middle of a circle made of small rocks and does not enjoy it when divers cross into his zone.
This dive site is used to great visibility, especially around the shallow pinnacle. You may come across a slight thermocline as you explore the deeper depths.
What you will see diving at Twins Dive Site
Nemo…obviously, Butterfly Fish, Blue ringed and Six banded Angelfish, bluespotted ribbontail rays, longfin batfish, scribbled filefish, porcupine fish, white eyed moray eel and plenty more.
If you are lucky you may see a turtle or barracuda. Beware of the Titan Trigger Fish…they can be slightly territorial, and it’s best to keep your distance.
