Best Diving Spots

Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem islands are the best places for tourists who are looking for fun dives as well as open-water PADI certification courses. The waters are shallow, to begin with, and the current conditions are light and ideal. Advanced divers head out to the islands further offshore. 

Koh Tang and Koh Prins, with their deeper, clearer waters and visibility up to 30 metres, are excellent for more experienced divers who may be rewarded with sightings of whale sharks, as well as eagle rays, barracuda, stingrays and leopard sharks. 

Cambodia doesn’t offer much in the way of wreck diving, but there are two sites off of Koh Tang at 30 to 40 metres depth.

Best time for diving

The best time of year to go scuba diving in Sihanoukville is between the months of December to April when the water currents and visibility are at their best.
