Spotted Eagle Rays at Racha Noi Island

The stunning Spotted Eagle Rays are becoming a regular at Racha Noi Island.

A Beautiful Creature

Right now at Koh Racha Noi, Phuket, Thailand we are regularly seeing whist scuba diving the beautiful White Spotted Eagle Rays.

These are majestic creatures that are not all that common to the area. If found are normally at Racha Noi and Racha Yai Islands which are about 30 km south of Phuket.

Belonging to the same family as the awesome manta rays. Eagle rays grow up to a maximum size of five meters in length and three meters wide. These gentle rays are very curious and usually stick around checking out the divers. Although they are usually seen alone we are seeing them in groups of two or three making for a fantastic diving experience.

Eagle rays feed on mollusks and crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth.

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, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You 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 your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]
