Trip Info

In the high season months between October and May there are a number of boat companies that run to Racha Noi.

Racha Noi is about another 40 minutes south of Racha Yai Island and is appreciated by regulars as it has less divers than Racha Yai.

The three dive day usually consists of two dives at Racha Noi and one dive at Racha Yai whilst returning to Phuket.

The diving at Racha Noi is very similar to Racha Yai and occasionally if the weather prevents comfortable sailing planned trips to Racha Noi will be aborted and three dives will be contacted at separate dive sites at Racha Yai. This is for the safety and comfort of the customers.

Racha Noi often has the best visibility in the day trip area and can sometimes be over 30 metres. She also offers the best chance of seeing the elusive and majestic manta ray on a Phuket daytrip.

Racha Noi also suffered heavily from the coral bleaching in 2010, however it improved faster than the sister island Racha Yai. This is possibly due to the lower amount of boat traffic there and often has cold water coming up from her deeper waters.

If you are wanting to see a manta ray then diving between January and April is you best chance. The rarely dived South Tip is believed to be the favourite of the mantas however given its remote location, depth and strong currents very few dive boats make it down there.
