Diving and snorkeling Ko Pha Ngan has a smaller, but no less active dive scene than the underwater mecca to the north, Ko Tao.
Schools here offer trips to some of the Gulf's most popular dive sites of Sail Rock and the Southwest Pinnacle, which lie roughly halfway between Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao. There are also some quality dive sites closer to Ko Pha Ngan in the waters off Ko Ma, Haad Salad and Ko Tae Nok (the island to the south-west of Ko Pha Ngan which you pass as the your boat arrives at Thong Sala.
For snorkeling, your best bets are around the northwest of the island, off beaches such as Ko Ma, Haad Khom, Haad Salad, Haad Ya and Haad Chaophao.
Dive schools also arrange trips to the Angthong Marine National Park, with popular sites there including Ko Wao and Ko Yippon.
