Racha Noi – Banana Rock

Banana Rock is just outside the large bay where you'll probably take your first dive of the day. The topography is completely different from the bay, the shallowest depth is around 7m where the rocks and hard coral reef meet the sand. There's a small patch reef at the start of the dive where we can sometimes find octopus hiding in the corals. Swimming deeper across the sand, keep a look out for sea moths and juvenile cockatoo waspfish and explore the few bommies for moray eels and reef stonefish. Recently we've been fortunate enough to have at least two giant frogfish hanging around on this dive site, the larger one is at depth near the beginning and it's smaller brethren sits so [...]

Octopus Are a Common Sighting In Phuket Diving Rare & Peculiar Critters

How Does An Octopus Change Colour?

Dazzling colour changes and perfect camouflage make octopus a favourite with everybody diving in Phuket but how do they perform this magic trick, well it's not mirrors, sorcery or witchcraft it's a complex combination of muscle, nerves, brain and skin pigments. By far the most common octopus we see when diving in Phuket is the day octopus (octopus cyanea) so we'll base our facts around this very convenient creature (we don't do night dives). That's what the cells are called, octopus have thousands of different colour chromataphores to every square inch of skin. Think of them as tiny balloons filled with coloured ink. The 'ink balloons' on most octopus come in black, brown, red, or [...]

Scuba Diving Boat At Racha Noi Phuket Amazing Local Dives

What is The Best Dive Site In Phuket?

The best dive site in Phuket is of course subjective. Scuba diving in Phuket offers a variety of different dive types and it can be difficult to choose which trip to join especially if you have only one day. So we'll try to help you make up your mind with our top picks covering various different styles of dive site. I'm going to omit the South Tip of Racha Noi from this list simply because although it's a fantastic dive site we simply can't get there often enough to justify it's inclusion. So for great vis we'll probably have to say Banana Bay/Rock at Racha Noi. We expect 20m visibilty and quite often get more, although it's not teeming with life we can still find some great wildlif [...]
