Sail Rock stands as one of Thailand’s premier dive sites, nestled within the Gulf of Thailand and surpassing all others in its aquatic splendor. Don’t miss the chance to witness an incredible array of marine life, from captivating creatures to majestic pelagic species, including the awe-inspiring whale sharks.

Embark on our Sail Rock Full Day Trips every Tuesday, unveiling a whole new dimension of Koh Tao’s underwater beauty. Positioned strategically between Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, this site boasts an extraordinary diversity of marine life, featuring schools of barracuda, batfish, snapper, trevally, and queenfish. The rock itself is adorned with mesmerizing hard coral, creating an enchanting backdrop for encounters with smaller marine wonders. The highlight? Spotting the majestic whale sharks, frequent visitors to this feeding hotspot.

Sail Rock, soaring 15 meters above water, offers a dive site with depths exceeding 40 meters. As the rock descends to the sandy banks below 20 meters, it creates a unique habitat for marine life. Surrounded by submerged rocks, providing ample hiding spots for captivating creatures, this underwater haven guarantees an unforgettable scuba diving experience. Immerse yourself in the unparalleled beauty of Sail Rock and elevate your Koh Tao diving adventure to new heights!

As well as being able to dive next to the rock wall, divers can also go inside the rock if they’re feeling more adventurous. Sail Rock boasts a ‘chimney’ feature, There is a vertical swim through that allows you to swim down into the rock from 5 meters, and exit the rock at the bottom, around 18 meters.

Note that our Sail Rock Day Trips are subject to weather conditions.  To keep you safe, we may have to cancel and reschedule our scheduled trips so please check with us before booking.

Because Sail Rock itself protrudes from the water, the dive site can be enjoyed at any depth. It’s a wonderful site for anyone from a newly certified Open Water diver, Divemaster, or even Master Instructor.
