Tai She Wan

About The Site

Tai She Wan is located at High Island, Sai Kung, at the foot of the hill Tai She Teng, facing Kau Sai Chau on the west. Water depth at Tai She Wan stays within 5 m on average, reaching 10 m at its deepest. As High Island blocks sea winds from the east and south, water remains mostly calm at Tai She Wan.

Although not a popular dive spot, Reef Check data from AFCD shows that coral coverage in Tai She Wan can reach over 60%. In the shallow, diverse hard coral colonies are found as well as large brain corals and daisy corals. In deeper waters, a flat sandy-silty bottom dominates. Common encounters in Tai She Wan include Russell’s snapper, Bronze sweepers, gobies, Whitecheek monocle bream, wrasses and Clark’s anemonefish. Lucky divers may also run into Blackbar filefish, Yellow boxfish, Spotted seahorse andknifejaws.

Although Tai She Wan village is now deserted, the site continues to attract yachts throughout the summer holidays. Maritime traffic becomes busy in the summer and water sports boats, such as wakeboarding boats also frequent the area. Divers should be mindful of reduced visibility as a result of the high traffic, and an SMB must be deployed upon ascent.
