Hin Luk Bat:

This is one of the best diving sites around Koh Chang. Hin Luk Bat is a pinnacle that offers refuge to many groups and varieties of fish. There are some moray eels, rays, fusiliers, large groupers, butterfly fish, parrot fish, banner fsih, barracuda, angel fish, and many others. The pinnacle is surrounded by huge boulders that provide a large number of different routes. The deepest point is 25 m, however, most of the dives are between 5 and 16 m. This dive site has an abundance of multi-coloured spryrographes (Christmas tree). It is an ideal site for diving at night.
The visibility ranges between 10 and 25 m. It is also a good very good site for snorkelling.

Hin Rap:

It is also a rocky reef whose top emerges 1or 2 m. There are in fact two diving sites in this area. The first is a diving site the around the rock and the coral area bordering it. A good place to spot of turtles, fish bats, rays, moray eels, and often large barracudas. We also observed several times a shark-whale. There is an abundance of corals.

The second spot is to the North. A little deeper and richer in corals, it is a massive cut up by a small canyon. Here, we often see some rays, moray eels to white eyes, angels, groupers, titan fish, clown fish, parrot fish, and from time to time we encounter a turtle. The visibility ranges from 3 to 20 m, often very clear, a good spot for diving in apnea.

Hin Tai Nam (often called Blueberry Hill):

Near Hin Rap, a rock rich in fish which the South side is covered with coral, a great place to find the Nudibranchs, batfish, spotted moray eels, groupers. For those who have the courage to swim a little Southeast of anchor point, a large massif of coral forming cavities is home to a wide variety of fish.

Hin Reu Tak (Banana Rock):

A rock dive site, with beautiful crevices where you can find tropical shrimp and nudibranchs.... There are large coral, gorgonian fans, soft corals, sponges... Not an abundance of corals, but a dive that most of the people appreciated much. It is a perfect site for snorkelling.

Hin Sam Sao (Three Rocks):

On the Northwest side of Koh Chang, this dive site has large white gorgonians, some coral, rich in fish, but sometimes with poor visibility because of its proximity to the coast.
