Diving around Koh Samet is considered very easy and you can see all kinds of marine life, from playful and curious sea turtles to Napoleon wrasse, barracudas, and moray eels. There are at least 20 diving schools on the island. They all have dive sites near each other so whichever company you decide to choose, you’ll get to dive all the same sites as everyone else. Nevertheless, we chose Mu Koh Samed because in our opinion it was the best choice on the island – they had excellent facilities and great service.
