Deep Six! obviously, It got its name from being deep and at Island 6, which was renamed Island 7 🤔
Deep six is the one of the most exciting #divesites at The #SimilanIslands.
Deep six dive site is not for the beginners but could be challenging for intermediate level #scubadivers with the topography, visibility and wonderfully diverse #marinelife.
At the end of the dive, it is usual to swim out north into open water in order to be picked up by the boat. This is because the rocks in shallow water and the waves they cause make getting to close difficult and hazardous.
#MantaRays or #WhaleSharks, they have been seen, but generally pass by on other Similan dive sites during the #divingseason. However, there is still plenty of life all the way down this exciting stack of #underwater boulders. Starting with other #sharks and #rays, it is not uncommon to see Whitetip Reef Sharks or Blue-Spotted Stingrays either resting or swimming. Both species usually hang around until divers approach too near, then they swim away slowly. Divers can expect to come across the likes of Rainbow Runners, Sweetlips , Fusiliers, Barracuda and Trevally to name just a few. The #Sweetlipsfish are among fish who like to hide in the caverns and sheltered areas, and there are lots more species to see in there as well. Examples of smaller fish and invertebrates sheltering from danger are #Frogfish, #Pipefish, #Snapper , #Boxfish, #RedFire, #lobsters and #shrimps.
Diving at the Similan Islands is an experience most people will never forget, and Deep Six is among the most exciting sites here. ** We have take bookings for every #vessel - size and all budget.

Ornate Ghost Pipefish
The species is almost fully grown when they settle to the seafloor after a lengthy pelagic larval stage. Recently settled individuals have large wispy transparent taila with silver to white tips on the tail and dorsal spines. (P. humann, N. DeLoach), 2005
