There is No real Scuba Diving in Koh Samui, as all the scuba diving activities take place around Koh Tao & Koh Nangyuan plus at the 2 scuba diving highlights Sail Rock & Chumpon Pinnacle.
The reason why diving Koh Samui is limited in terms of dive sites options is simply because the shallow water and sandy bottom combine to make the visibility quite low. The marine life is not as abundant as on dive sites around Koh Tao or Koh Nag Yuan.

Dive operators from Koh Samui will rather prefer to bring their divers to Koh Tao for 3 dives. Departure is usually around 6:00 to 8:00 and return will vary depending on the boat. Speedboats obviously come back earlier than the bigger and slower wooden dive boats. Koh Tao has several more dive sites to offer divers who are looking for world class diving. The waters around Koh Tao are deeper and the marine life quite impressive.
Most divers prefer to dive from Koh Tao where they have access to several dive sites that are quite famous around the island and are agining international reputation. Chumpon Pinnacle, Southwest Pinnacle, Green Rock, White Rock, Twins, Japanese Garden, Tanote Bay and Sairee Reef.
