Activity description

Swim with gentle giants on this adventure dive to Sail Rock.

Home to the biggest fish in the ocean, Sail Rock is a bucket list location that draws certified divers from around the world – all looking to tick the infamous Whale Sharks off their ID card. Explore the best dive site in Thailand on this full day excursion to the infamous pinnacle!

This activity is run & operated from Sairee Beach on the island of Koh Tao in Thailand. Home to over 25 distinctive dive sites, this course visits Sail Rock – a two-hour boat transfer from the island. 

Meet your divemaster at the activity base on Sairee Beach for this 2 dive day out to Sail Rock. Suitable for certified divers only (PADI/SSI), groups are organised on a 4:1 ratio – ensuring supervision and guidance to a maximum depth of 30m. With its sheer abundance of schooling fish making it probably the best and most famous dive site in the Gulf of Thailand, this large pinnacle (which begins above sea level) provides a superb wall dive effect. Together with a number of surrounding smaller pinnacles, Sail Rock offers an amazingly varied topography. The largest pinnacle hosts the famous Chimney, a large vertical swim-through with its deepest entry point around 18m, reaching the top at around 8m. Expect to see schooling Big Eyed Trevally, numerous Barracuda, Giant Groupers and perhaps the elusive Whale Shark (April – May).

Suitable for certified divers only, Sail Rock is weather dependent and subject to strong currents. Free Nitrox is available on request and all scuba equipment is included in the price.
