Located approximately 8km from Koh Tao, this pinnacle takes up to an hour to reach, but is well worth the wait. Divers are typically greeted by great visibility which allows them to take in the truly colossal shoals of fish which populate this site, making it one of our all time favourites.
Heading South of the ridge, it is possible to leave the main pinnacle and strike out to Barracuda Rock, named for the huge shoals of Chevron Barracuda it attracts. Look out for enormous Marbled Grouper lying in the depths. The shallower areas near the top of Chumphon Pinnacle also harbour vast numbers of Magnificent Anemones complete with Pink Anemonefish and Damselfish.
