Racha Noi

Racha Noi is the furthest of the two islands and is the sister island to Racha Yai. Racha Noi is a popular dive site for more experienced divers but has easier sites too, but the depths are generally greater and the currents frequently stronger than at its sister island to the North Racha Yai.

"Racha Noi offers many opportunities for an enjoyable and rewarding deep-dive."

Racha Noi is the furthest of the two islands and is the sister island to Racha Yai. Racha Noi is a popular dive site for more experienced divers but has easier sites too, but the depths are generally greater and the currents frequently stronger than at its sister island to the North Racha Yai. You will encounter huge underwater boulders that offer a good chance to see manta rays and sharks around Marina Bay, these boulder formations are very similar to what we see at the Similan Islands. The northern tip of the island offers an opportunity for a good multilevel dive along a large pinnacle, where larger marine life like Reef Sharks and Stingrays are common and sometimes Manta Rays can be seen here.

Off the southern point, South Tip is only dived once or twice a month due to strong currents, it is a nice drift dive along some spectacular scenery as you find yourself on top of a large rock formation surrounded by deep water. On the southwest side there is a wooden ship wreck that draws a lot of interesting reef fish. Racha Noi offers many opportunities for an enjoyable and rewarding deep-dive but due to the potential for strong currents here many of the dive shops will only bring divers here who have an advanced certification.

“Amazing discovery day”
Wow...!!!! Just great, amazing and exciting. I went there with my son (almost 13) to interduce him scuba diving. We not went to the pool - yes, we went directly to the open water. My son was abit afraid to jump with all this weight into the water... but he did. After diving he didn't want to stop diving to...

“LEXY AND NEIL WERE AMAZING!”
This was the best thing we did in Phuket. Lexy and Neil did an excellent job of making all of us feel comfortable. I loved every moment of our experience. 3 out of 4 of us were beginners. By the end of the first dive, we all felt fairly confident thanks to Lexy and Neil Thank you Lexy and Neil!...
