Sail Rock Sail Rock is undoubtedly the most famous dive site in the Koh Samui archipelago. This 15 meter high granite tower rises from sea bed 33 meters below. In its numerous cracks and crevasses it is easy to find Giant & White eyes moray eels, banded boxer shrimps and crabs.

A must for divers visiting this spectacular dive site is The Chimney an awesome vertical swim through. A window at the side of the “The Chimney” at 12 meters gives you opportunity to look out into the blue to see large shoals Chevron Barracuda and Bat Fish in the distance.

The most famous outer pinnacle around the main rock is the "Secret Pinnacle” which offers a second dive site of its own. The pinnacle located 10 meter away from the main rock where you will see a massive shoal of Big Eye Trevally and Yellowtail Barracuda more than 2,500 strong, circles the top of the rock and often divers get completely encompassed by schooling fish giving an experience more likely to be found on a National Geographic documentary.

Whale sharks are visiting here regularly; although we can never expect them the possibility of sighting a Whale Shark is ever present. The marine life found at this spectacular dive site seems endless. To say this dive site is unpredictable is an understatement we can honestly say this is one dive site that never fails to deliver a new experience.
