Deep Dives in Pattaya - The "Samaesan Hole"
The Samaesan Hole is one of 12 of the World’s Most Deep & Dangerous Dive Sites. It is a 90 m deep former military ammunition dump, located in an active shipping channel between the islands of Ko Chuang and Ko Samae San. Technical divers to this place to learn and practice trimix dive courses.
It’s called an ‘explosive dump ground’ on marine charts because it contains unexploded bombs.
Samaesan Hole is known to be one a dive with the strongest currents to be found in this area and is not suitable for beginner or even intermediate level divers.
Light doesn't penetrate here and diving conditions are extremely dangerous. This, however, doesn't stop technical divers and dive junkies from coming to Pattaya and learn trimix diving.
Only few divers reached the sandy bottom and reported beautiful underwater landscapes with large amounts of marine and coral life.
It was reported that the first successful dive into the bottom of this site was made by Mermaids' Steve E. Burton and Scuba Moose' Claes Martinsson in 1998.
We teach Tec Deep, Trimix 65 and Tec Trimix Diver courses here. If you are qualified and interested in taking Advanced Trimix course, please contact us for more information.
