The king of Thai­land him­self once closed Fan­tasy Reef to pro­tect this trea­sured nat­u­ral habi­tat, and it’s paid off. Div­ing this elec­tri­fy­ing reef is like go­ing to one of Thai­land’s in­fa­mous full-moon par­ties, with all of the vis­ual de­lights but with­out the mu­sic. You will be en­ticed by a huge di­ver­sity of ma­rine life, with ev­ery­thing from bump­head par­rot­fish to huge manta rays to leop­ard sharks and schools of ea­gle rays to even ex­otic macro crea­tures. But the en­vi­ron­ment may be even more un­for­get­table. The huge as­ter­oid-look­ing reef is cov­ered in soft corals, and a white sandy beach greets you as you sur­face. The fun starts in about 50 feet of wa­ter as the slow, gen­tle cur­rent sweeps you away to the reef, tak­ing you on a fan­tas­tic voy­age. Wel­come to the An­daman Sea.
