Sail Rock

Sail Rock

Sail Rock (‘Hin Bai’ in Thai) is the premier scuba diving site in the Gulf of Thailand. Situated an less than hour from Koh Phangan, we offer this popular dive site as a full day trip.

Sail Rock rises up 8m out of the water and the dive site has a maximum depth of over 40m. The actual rock wall drop down to below 20 metres and surrounded by pinnacles.

There is a second large rock called the East Pinnacle – that doesn’t reach the surface – on the south east of the dive site that drops down into the sand at more than 40 metres.

As Sail Rock is far away from the islands, it is a haven for marine life. Marine Life use this as cleaning station and seem use to divers. Huge schools of Barracuda, Batfish and Fusilers cruise around the Pinnacle and you will often see solitary Grouper and maybe if your lucky a Whaleshark. Sail Rock offers plenty for macro enthusiasts including shrimps, crabs and Nudibranch.

Night Dive To Sail Rock

Enjoy the best trip Sail Rock has to offer! Patrolling the blue during your first dive, you then surface to a wonderful jaw dropping sunset. The marine population is swarming with trevally, reef fish, and barracudas hunting their night time snack. This truly is the sunset dive not to miss! It is truly an amazing experience!

Then once the hunting has stopped and the fish are sleeping, all of the night creatures come out to play. After you have rested and enjoyed our tasty evening meal we prepare to jump back in with torches to see what we can find after the sun has set. Sail Rock changes into a completely different environment and a whole different dive experience can be enjoyed.
