Bays 4 and 5

These two dive site are situated at the south east end of Racha Yai. They are not commonly dived however in recent times have started to gain popularity.

Both bays have shallow water to begin the dive however both have rock formations that drop away to about 30 metres and beyond. The rock formation are proving to be popular given that they run deep and it offers divers something to look at rather than the sandy bays where the coral ends around the 18 – 20m mark. Visibility is often better here as well due to the rocks, depth and lack of general activity on the sites.

Manta rays and Eagle rays have been spotted in these waters.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloa [...]

PADI Best Refresher Thailand Aussie Divers Phuket Courses

Do I Need to do a Scuba Diving Refresher?

PADI recommends when during their theory section of the PADI Open Water Course that you should do a refresher if you have not been diving for six months.
