Sail Rock

The dive site Sail Rock, also called Hin Bai by the locals, is one of the most famous in the Gulf of Thailand. It gets its reputation from its good visibility and impressively dense schools of fish! The max depth is around 40m. The unique location of the site in open water, exposes to currents and attracts pelagic fauna (manta rays, whale-sharks, tuna, Spanish mackerels...) that come here to feed and mate. Because of the (sometimes strong) current, you always dive it in small groups and among 'experienced' divers.

 

Covered in colorful corals and sporting, though deeper, black coral bushes, it is a great dive site to spot moray eels, scorpionfish and the typical tropical reef fauna. Out in the blue, on the outskirt of the dive site, you'll have the opportunity to see large schools of barracudas, snappers, batfish and trevallies. Whale-sharks are spotted here about 4 to 5 months of the year!
