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.

Aqualung i450T Dive Computer

Having used the same computer brand for nearly 20 years, it was hard to jump ship from something that had only occasionally let me down. Especially to a brand that is although well trusted in the other diving equipment would be their first foray into the dive computer market. So enticed by a great deal and free in house quick and efficient repairs I decided to take a chance. The Aqualung i450T certainly looks the part, a sleek design a [...]
