Racha Noi Bay

Racha Noi Bay

Racha Noi Bay

Racha Noi Bay is a delightful and scenically beautiful bay to the vey south east side of Racha Noi.

This bay is rarely dived as a stand alone dive site because of its distance from Phuket itself. It can take as much as 40 minutes extra boat ride to the dive site.

The dive site is the closest dive site to the favour manta ray dive site of South Tip. For this reason often when the experienced divers are diving South Tip this is the bay where the novice divers will dive.

It always seems to have crystal clear water and lovely white sand that makes it visually stunning above the water.

Book 3 Dive Trip to Racha Noi & Racha Yai

Below there is quite a large soft sand plateau that makes it a very good beginners dive site. Head east and you will follow a rocky reef and eventually hit a sandy bottom that levels out at about 35 metres.

There is a small rocky island to the south which makes for a nice attractions during the dive and if you continue to the south you can follow the rocky reef anywhere between 10 – 25 metres. Be careful following the reef as when the currents are strong they will run directly to the south and it can take you for a long ride. Probably the best drift dives I have done have been at Racha Noi Bay.

Racha Noi is a great place for pelagic and of course with the manta rays, so you never know your luck.

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.
