This is a relatively small dive site which is prominently consists of large granite boulders. These boulders begin at about 14 metres and run down to 40 metres and beyond.

Unfortunately the site can be hampered by strong currents. The dive site has no protection from the island so sizeable waves can also be an issue for dive companies. It is often difficult to locate the reef and this site is definitely an experienced divers site only. Careful planning has to be made by the dive company and often the dive is canceled and relocated to the near by Racha Noi bay due to safety issues.

Day Trip Diving In Thailand

When scuba diving in Phuket you'll be embarking on what is referred to as 'Day Trip Scuba Diving', day trips will take you to one or many of the Islands around Phuket that house our outstanding reefs & wrecks. Because these Islands are typically one to two hours from the mainland by boat it works out much better if you do multiple dives while you are out there. Day trip diving here in Thailand will usually see you doing two or three dives per day, which is awesome because you get to see a multitude of different dive sites, marine life and scenery for a relatively low price, plus we get you back home in time for dinner.

Day trip diving is suitable for divers of all levels, whether experienced, new, or total beginners, including Discover Scuba Divers, we have many options for day trip divers, including Phi Phi Island, Racha Noi & Racha Yai and the King Cruiser Wreck. Basically it is just a matter of deciding which day trip and dive sites best suit your level of diving comfort and then contact Aussie Divers to book it.
