Racha Noi Islands are directly south from Phuket, about 1 hour by speedboat. These islands offer more difficult diving, with deep drop-offs, big granite boulders and strong currents. All dives are done right next to the island, with one pinnacle at the south tip that can be dived at slack tides with depths of 40meters and more at this island.Visibility range from 10 – 30metres, with weather that can be unpredictable at times. Trips can be cancelled on short notice due to big waves and strong winds.
This area is very well known for bigger game fishes (Giant Trevally, Cobia, Dogtooth Tuna, Mackerel, Rainbow Runner, Barracuda and Wahoo) and also reef fishes (Snapper, Grouper and Grey Sweetlips) Experience is required to be able to hunt in this area, where depth can make a difference in landing a good sized fish.
Group daytrips to Racha Noi start in the mornings 10am from Rawai beach, and return around sunset. The speedboat is fitted out with ice boxes to keep fish cold.
