Where to Dive on Koh Samui
Vacation ownership is a unique travel experience which offers our clients the opportunity to enjoy a hassle-free holiday in exotic destinations such as Thailand, the Land of Smiles.
Through our getaway club, families and groups of friends can choose one of our award-winning Absolute resorts in this beautiful country to unwind, relax and try their hands at new experiences such as the adrenaline-fuelled sport of scuba diving.
Take our getaway club on the idyllic island of Koh Samui, for example. Located just north of the island’s famous Chaweng Beach, the Q Signature Samui Resort is close to some of the best diving sites in the region, with an abundance of marine life and a multitude of unforgettable sights.
Arguably the best dive site near our luxury resort is Sail Rock, a pinnacle shaped like an iceberg that emerges out of the water from the ocean bed. It takes approximately 45minutes by boat to reach the site, but it is well worth the journey as experts say it is one of the best wall dives in the region.
With a maximum depth of 40 metres, Sail Rock will appeal to experienced divers as well as beginners who will be guided down by a team of expert monitors recommended by us.
The dive site is famous for a vertical “chimney” which begins at around 16 metres and is ideal to ascend through. It also provides the perfect backdrop to the host of marine life which is found in the waters off Koh Samui. Here, you will see shoals of barracuda, yellow fusiliers, giant morays, grouper and batfish, and even a few whale sharks if you are really lucky.
Whale sharks – the largest fish in the sea – are frequently spotted in waters off Thailand during mating season but divers shouldn’t be alarmed, they prefer eating plankton to people and can be extremely friendly.
