Anemone Reef
(2 dives, 20mins cruise time)

Anemone reef

Anemone Reef is a submerged pinnacle with its top around 5 m underwater, giving this divesite its Thai name “Hin Jom”. Its located 1,5 hour boat drive from Chalong but only 20 mins from Elixir Divers centre!

Its English name is similarly straightforward – sea anemones dwel in stunningly dense populations in the shallow areas, presenting an amazing view of sea’s own version of the living carpet. Because of the quantity, quality and the variety of marine life that lives in the beautiful soft coral and sea fans that cover the pinnacle, Anemone Reef is the choice site for naturalist courses and is no doubt a favourite among photographers as well.

Anemonefish and clownfish are common, as are big schools of snapper that cloud the pinnacle. Schools of yellowtail barracuda are also often seen circling the rock, together with groupers, oriental sweetlips, scorpionfish and soldierfish that flit among corals, cracks and crevices. Small critters such as tiger-tail seahorses are also found here on occasion.

This is a relatively easy dive. Going around  the pinnacle should pose no problems except in strong currents, so we try scheduling the dive time near slack tide to get the most our of this dive site.
