Rock is a large granite pinnacle which is situated mid
distance between the islands of Koh Tao and Koh Pha-ngan.
The pinnacle emerges 12m above the water surface and
goes down to around 28m in places. The main topographical
feature is 'The Chimney'; a spacious vertical swim-through
with entrances / exits at 6m, 12m and 18m. Often spotted
here are large schools of Barracuda, Mackerel, Big-eye
Trevally and Batfish. You can see as many Whale Sharks
here as at the Chumpon Pinnacle site.
One advantage Sail Rock has over Chumpon is the longer
dive times. From the shallows up to 10m, or even at
5m toward the end of the dive you will still see plenty
of marine life.
Ideal for levels of diving.
first entering the water you are greeted with a school
of Bat Fish. The pinnacle starts at around 15m down
and reaches a depth beyond 30m. This is your best bet
to see larger marine life, especially Grey Reef sharks
and very large Potato Cod. Grouper and Bull sharks are
also sighted regularly here. Chumpon, along with Sail
Rock, is the most likely place to see a Whale Shark
during your stay. At your 5m surface interval you can
explore the pinnacle to see Clown Fish hiding in Anemones.
is an incredible variety of marine life within the beauty
of the surrounding landscape.
The National Marine Park is generally shallower than
the top dive sites off Koh Pha-ngan. Barracuda are often
seen here as are plenty of Angel fish and Butterfly
fish amongst the coral. Porcupine Puffer fish, Morays
and Blue Spotted Stingrays are regularly found among
the rocks and Banded Sea Snakes also make the dive sites
of the marine park their home. Ideal for levels of diving.

shop in Chaloklum (Northern Koh Pha-ngan). A classic
beach dive ideal for all divers with an abundance of
sea life and coral.
This dive site is perfect for training at 6m with a
sandy bottom in one area. Being a shallow site you can
have a longer dive time looking at the marine life passing
you by! Great site for all divers.
