Racha Yai & Racha Noi – Dive Tour

Racha Yai & Racha Noi – Dive Tour

Manta’s, Wrecks & Macro, That Is Why We Dive Racha Noi & Racha Yai

Racha Noi is Phuket’s primary Manta hot spot, a cleaning station that regularly brings these amazing giants of the sea to visit us in the shallow waters of the many bays and dive sites the island supports. Racha Noi is also extremely diverse, with area’s of breathtaking coral growth and deeper places with hidden secrets among the massive granite boulders! Adding to this, Phuket is not exactly known for wreck or macro diving but if you happen to be on this dive tour you might change your mind, as one of our regularly visited dive sites at Racha Yai actually has 5 wrecks as well as a massive artificial reef of concrete cubes and other sunken treasures, these wrecks and artificial reef structures attract a large amount of fish and distinctly rare & unique macro life.

Racha Yai and Racha Noi are also amazing sites for training and diving courses, almost every dive site is a mix of deep and shallow sandy bottoms, corals, boulders and more. Advanced divers can see all of these things in a single dive, as well as marine life like Jenkins Whip Rays & Stone Fish, Giant Brown Marble Groupers and again don’t forget Manta’s. If you have not dived Racha Yai and Racha Noi then you are missing out on some of Phuket’s top diving spots.

Racha Yai, Noi Tour Itinerary

Our dive tours to Racha Yai & Racha Noi, usually see us doing the first two dives at Racha Noi, with the final dive of the day at Racha Yai. We do this for a couple of reasons, firstly Racaha Noi provides both deep and shallow diving, allowing advanced and beginner divers on the same dive tour, this way we get the deep & training dives done first, then onto Racha Yai which has some amazing artificial reef structures and relatively shallow wreck diving at around 24 meters.

Phuket Diving Trips – How it Works

I've dived in many places around the world and it's fair to say that scuba diving in Phuket differs greatly from anywhere else I've experienced. Most of the best diving spots in the world are fairly remote with limited infrastructure but Phuket is very different negating the necessity of staying in a dive resort or very close to the boat departure point. As a result divers come from all over the island to join us, so if you're wondering how it works read on... The time varies depends on where you're staying (see below) but will be between 06:30 - 08:00am from the reception area of your hotel. If our drivers can't immediately see you they will ask the hotel staff to call your name. Ple [...]

Phuket Diving Holiday – Hire Or Bring Scuba Equipment?

We would all prefer to be using our own equipment but sometimes the extra carriage fees, weight of equipment and trying to get it dry after we've finished scuba diving can be a bit of a pain. Hiring equipment can be a simple solution at a surprisingly low cost. If you're going on a liveaboard safari or are in Phuket just to dive then yes of course you'll bring what ever equipment you have. Everybody feels comfortable with their own equipment, you'll know how many weights you need, know how your regulator breaths, will be confident that your perfectly fitted fins won't cause any blisters that can really ruin a trip, know your mask won't leak and having a computer that you are familia [...]
