A bay further south of Camera Bay, is Marina Bay. This very versatile dive site boasts endless areas of intact hard corals, beautifully vegetated rock formations and often very good visibility up to depths of 40 meters. Variety makes it possible to apply different diving profiles at this site. Accordingly entertaining, can the dives be carried out. In terms of marine life, you never know exactly what will happen. What is certain, however, is that this dive site is always good for surprises. The western side of Racha Noi can be dived mainly during the dry season between about November to April. In the rest of the season, this side of the island is exposed to strong Monsoon winds.
Dive boats go daily to Racha Noi, in combination with Racha Yai.
Marina Bay impresses with its large coral garden in the middle of the bay. At the southern end are beautiful and intact salad corals. Further south is a large single rock called Marita’s Rock, which looks extremely imposing. A tunnel where you can dive through and large fan corals are located here, as well as at the very northern end of the bay.
In the often clear water, the huge dimensions of the beautifully overgrown and down to 40-meter depths rock formations are really visible.
It has its own charm and fascination to float over the rocky edges and to look into the depths of the ocean.
