When it comes to diving, Koh Phangan is like a divers hidden secret - Sail Rock! Koh Phangan is known as 'the party island' when in fact we are located closest to Sail Rock which is a premier & world-renowned dive site. It is classed as #1 in the Gulf. of Thailand. Sail Rock is, by far, the most prestigious place you could want to dive and it is practically a second home to us at Phangan International Dive School as many of our diving take place here.

For those who don't know about Sail Rock… This 30 metre dive site has earned its reputation due to a number of elements. Firstly, this triangular shaped pinnacle contains a vertical swim through inside, also known as the “chimney”. An entry at 12 metres enables you to swim inside the rock itself, allowing you to witness all the marine life within it, a very intimate experience whilst diving. There is an exit at 18 metres too. In addition, the glorious amounts of colourful reef and coral that surrounds the entire rock make it the perfect place to live for hundreds of species of marine life. This means your dives at Sail Rock will be unique and unforgettable. Hence the nickname “fish soup.” Don’t forget that this dive sight has the highest number of Whale Sharks sightings in Thailand too, so if you want the opportunity to see one then this is the dive site for you!

If you are traveling on a budget then our Backpackers option of dive courses with local dives at dive sites such as Ko Ma and Mae Haad will save you thousands of Baht and we still throw in a free dorm bed if you want!

This is the perfect place to undertake your PADi Open Water course or extended courses. With the entertaining social life and the fantastic Sail Rock around the corner, you will not regret it!

The PADI Open Water Course is the most popular training course to help you obtain your diving certification for scuba diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres.

PADI Open Water courses on Koh Phangan can be taken in just 3 days as we start early in the morning.

Children over 10 years old can take the Junior Open Water Course.

If you are visiting the famous Full Moon Party, then consider doing your Open Water course on Koh Phangan a few days before the party starts

After the party you have many choices.

Either head over to our dive facility on Koh Tao to undertake your Advanced course so you get a full variation of dive sites in the Gulf.

Alternatively, journey over to our dive facilities on Phi Phi and Phuket to continue your courses at the dive sites in the Andaman Sea on the West coast of Thailand.
