East of Eden is one of the top dive sites in the Similans, Thailand just east of Koh Pabu which is Similan island number seven. Its underwater landscape consists out of a hard and soft coral sloping reef with many cracks and crevices for morays to hide in. This fringing reef together with its surrounding sand creates an excellent high variety dive site at a very small area. Tsunami damage can be observed at the shallower parts of this dive, but not enough to ruin this dive site's popularity. The sandy patches around the huge stunning coral head are filled with life such as spotted garden eels, khul's sting rays and gobies. Supposedly, a team from National geographic had spent a week diving along this bommie for a one hour documentary.
The dive site East of Eden is very divers and abundant with fish and coral life. It has one of the most incredible and largest underwater bommies in the Similans. This huge coral head starts at twenty five meters deep and rises to a depth of only twelve meters. Green and hawksbill sea turtles can often been seen near the shallower parts of the reef. Schools of blue-striped snappers, yellow boxfish and octopus are often spotted in this aquarium dive. Stacks of brown and sky blue-fringed sheet corals where yellow damsels and Indian triggerfish are common residents can be seen as you ascent. There is also coral in all forms, colours and sizes. You will see coral such as red and yellow soft coral trees, huge gorgonian sea fans and whip corals. There is often a gentle current for an excellent but slow drift dive. It is one of the best locations in the Similan Islands for some fantastic diving, because of its colour, diversity and marine life.
