The most northerly of the Koh Haa islands is Koh Haa Neung (literally Koh Haa One) and is a very short boat journey from The Lagoon.
The shallow areas, particularly to the south and west of this island are literally full of fish and are great for both divers and snorkelers. The east and northern parts of the island are a little deeper, making these areas less suitable for snorkelers. Huge barrel sponges, staghorn coral, big snapper, tuna, titan triggerfish, lionfish, turtles and barracuda are often seen around the island.
Recently seen around Koh Haa One are zebra sharks, black trip reef sharks, several different whale sharks, devil (mobular) rays, nurse shark, eagle ray, guitar shark and many other larger species, making the group of 6 islands at Koh Haa one of the top dive and snorkel locations in Thailand.
To the west of Koh Haa One is a series of swim throughs and caverns known as 'The Chimney' which is one of the highlights of the island. With several shallow entrances, a large, central chamber around 8 - 9m, an exit around 17m, and another shallow exit into the 'fish bowl' some parts of The Chimney can get a little narrow in places making it more suitable for experienced divers.
At the bottom of The Chimney lies a dense garden of white and lilac soft corals around 20 - 22m where the occasional turtle is found, along with stingrays, snapper, trumpet fish and many others.
For the macro photographer, countless nudibranchs, tiny crabs, shrimp, seahorses and ghost pipefish are just some of the many species to be found around this wonderful island.
