Photo of the Day: Lionfish @ Chumphon Pinnacles, Koh Tao

Posted December 2nd in Diving Photos

No spot the fish today! But a wonderful underwater photo taken off Koh Tao.

Fantastic image from John of a lionfish at the spectacular Chumphon Pinnacles dive site, north-west of Koh Tao.

Whilst lionfish used to be quite rare around Koh Tao, they appear to be thriving at the Chumphon Pinnacles with numbers multiplying and sightings common.
