Dive Sail Rock, the most popular dive site in the Gulf of Thailand! Being an hour and a half away, Sail Rock is a special trip we usually run only once a week. The main rock rises up 8m out of the water and drops down to below 20m, where it turns into a sandy slope to around 40 meters. The most noticeable feature of the dive is “the chimney” – a vertical tunnel in the rock that leads you from 18m to 8m. Other highlights you may see are schools of batfish, barracudas and if you’re lucky even a whale shark or two!
Leave early in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while watching the sun rise over Koh Tao. Sail Rock is situated between Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, our boat will reach it in about an hour and a half. Enjoy this amazing dive site for 2 dives with a lunch break in between. You’ll be back in the early afternoon with plenty of the day left to relax on the beach.

Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before diving. Answering ‘yes’ to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.Please read the
