Photos of Sailrock!
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, silver travelly in schools larger than your kitchen, grouper, snapper, giant moray eels, giant grouper, bat fish, banner fish, angel fish, fusilier, hard and soft corals, the list goes on! In addition, the surrounding pinnacles, canyons, and rock formations will transfix divers and keep you coming back again and again. This is the site divers return to as it changes daily and never disappoints. Because this unique pinnacle rises out of the sea, it also means most of the marine life is found quite shallow, which translates to long, exciting dives for everyone, no matter how experienced you are! H2O take our divers to Sail Rock like no one else – departing at 12:30pm straight from Thong Nai Pan Beach, we journey approximately 25 minutes and arrive at the site just as all the busy boats from the morning are packing up to leave, giving us exclusive access to this amazing site. Most days we are the only boat onsite and it’s then that we are quite lucky with the big stuff (whalesharks! giant grouper!) returning after the chaos from the many morning visitors settles down. We take a maximum of 12 divers per day here, so it will never feel crowded.
