Raising money for the Thai children of Chaloklam

A few days ago at Sail Rock Divers, the expat and local Thai community of Chaloklum came together to celebrate the retirement of a highly respected teacher “Mr Oot”. The event was organised not only to thank Mr Oot for his years of service but also to raise money for the local village school to have a drinking water filtration system.
Over 300 people attended the fundraiser from all over Koh Phangan, Thanks to everyone involved, It was a fun and successful party. Even the Karaoke was good !
The total amount raised from this evening was a staggering 38,000THB.
Check out some of the pictures and see how happy the kids were.

Living In Paradise

We’ll find paradise together, whatever form that might take.
Have you ever layed back and dreamed of yourself relaxing on a paradise beach, sipping ice cold cocktails whilst listening to the sea lapping over your toes and the indescribable noise of the jungle behind you as it gets ready for the sun to set and a new life to begin?
Living and working on a paradise island is easily within your reach. Becoming a dive professional is the best way of achieving this goal, the three things that make a good dive destination are sun, sea and sand, so to sum that up Paradise. Working in the dive industry will give you a ticket to travel, meet people you probably would have never meet, understand different cultures and really get a chance to live your life.
How beautiful can life be? We hardly dare imagine it.
Becoming a Padi professional is not only a career its a way of life, our GOPRO packages are the ideal way to kick start your adventure. At Sail Rock we offer all inclusive packages and tailor made packages to suit all of your needs, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
The offer of the year is 5 free instructor specialities when you sign up for your full IDC.

diving the east pinnacle koh phangan

what a fabulous year of diving we have had at sail rock, the gulf of Thailands premier dive site, Whalesharks, bull sharks and crystal clear waters have made sail rock a true contender for a position as one of the top ten dive sites in the world, we have never seen so many fish and such diversity as we have in the last few years which is mainly due to the tighter restrictions on fishing and the constant effort being made by all dive centres on koh Phangan to protect our local dive sites. This is another short video taken at the east pinnacle and it shows the amount of fish we see on every dive.
