Sail Rock is one of the most famous dive sites in the Golf of Thailand. Immerse yourself in the clear waters after taking a boat from Koh Tao.
This activity is only suitable for certified divers who have dived in the previous 12 months. If you are a beginner, we recommend you book our diving activity off the coasts of Koh Tao.
The day before the activity, you must go to La Bombona Diving Centre before 2 pm to show your official diver certificate and to fill out a form with your personal information. If you fail to do this, you cannot participate in the activity.
Sail Rock Scuba Diving Experience
Our excursion will begin at 5:30 am from La Bombona Diving centre, next to the Koh Tao Pier. After receiving brief instructions from your English-speaking monitor, you will set out to Sail Rock, a crag in the middle of the Golf of Thailand. With various currents churning around the pinnacle, it is one of the most spectacular dive sites in Southeast Asia.
During the journey, of approximately one hour and a half, you will have free drinks and snacks on board. Once you get to Sail Rock, you will be divided into two groups: one for guests with an Open Waters Divers certificate (for immersions of up to 18 meters) and the other for more advanced divers who can dive up to 30 meters. Each group will do a total of two immersions.
In the depths of Sail Rock, you will find abundant and diverse marine flora and fauna: schools of fish, 2-meter long barracudas, impressive corals, and you might even catch a glimpse of a shark whale! Even though it is the largest fish species, it is harmless.
After completing the two immersions, you will return to Koh Tao for around 1 pm.
