“Ko Haa Chimney”: An Underwater Video Guide

Ko Haa ChimneyKo Haa Chimney is located on island number one (or ‘Neung’) of Ko Haa’s five islands.

The dive site is home to ‘The Chimney’, an eerie underwater tunnel starting at 17 metres and rising all the way to 6 metres, where a school of sweepers glint in the piercing rays of the sun.

Explore the arm that branches off the main chimney to the east, bringing you out into a beautiful shallow chamber with several large exits. Following the light through the tunnel either up or down the chimney is an experience not to be missed and can provide great silhouette opportunities.

Ko Haa Neung is a varied and spectacular dive site that is perfect for all kinds of underwater photography and videography. With such a wide range of marine life, beautiful corals and reefscapes, you can set your imagination free!

Ko Haa 1 is the deepest of all the Ko Haa dive sites and is very popular with experienced divers. The dive site is home to ‘The Chimney‘, an eerie underwater tunnel starting at 17 metres and rising all the way to a chamber at 5 metres, where a school of sweepers glint in the piercing rays of the sun.

The south side is made up of large, coral covered boulders with enough swim-throughs and macro delights to keep divers happy for hours. The north and east of the island are reef slopes covered in Corals & Anemones, with beautiful schools of Snapper & a great chance to meet a local Hawksbill Turtle.

The south-west side of the island is a spectacular wall dive, with plenty of action in the blue & even a chance to see a Marble Ray or maybe even a Leopard Shark.
