Sail Rock

Good for all levels


Widely known as the best site in the Gulf, this local treasure is famous for whaleshark sightings! Whether you see these gentle giants or not, you will be amazed at the amount of marine life found here daily. Barracuda, large schools of silver travelly , giant moray eels, colourful corals... the list goes on! The unique pinnacle rises out of the sea, and most of the marine life is found quite shallow. This means long exciting dives for everyone, no matter how experienced you are. A trip to Sail Rock with H2O is like no other; departing at 12:30pm straight from Thong Nai Pan Beach, we journey approximately 25 minutes to arrive at the site just as all the busy boats from the morning are packing up to leave, giving us exclusive access. Most days we are the only boat onsite, allowing our divers to experience Sail Rock to the fullest. For this trip, we take a maximum of 10 divers per day, so it will never feel crowded!
