In the morning of the first day we cruise Read More -->
with our diving boat MV Matchanu towards Racha Noi. The journey takes approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. The island of Racha Noi (Racha means King in Thai and Noi means small) is located south of Phuket, in the middle of the open sea. The uninhabited, paradise island made of granite rocks is overgrown with lush jungle and captivates with mostly crystal clear and turquoise water. The fairytale Racha Noi bay with a snow-white sandy beach provides a real “Robinson Crusoe” feeling.
The island is surrounded by an extensive and intact hard coral reef with sophisticated rock formations and is home to countless, fascinating and often rare sea creatures in the shallow water as well as in deeper regions. With a visibility of 30 meters + you experience the full magical beauty of the deep blue ocean. With a little luck, big fish such as manta rays can be seen on the southern tip of the island. Racha Noi South Tip (the most southern dive site for join-in scuba diving day trips) is the manta spot when scuba diving in Phuket.
Based on the prevailing conditions, we decide which dive sites / snorkeling sites we are going to approach. On the first day we do three dives (2 dives a day plus 1 night dive). On the second day we conduct anther extensive two dives, before we return to Phuket in the afternoon.
The catering on board by our crew includes a light breakfast on both days, a lunch with Thai food and a barbecue dinner on the beach (weather permitting). Drinking water, coffee and tea are included. Soft drinks and beer can be bought aboard or brought along. Comfortable mats are available on deck of MV Matchanu for the night camp under the open sky. Sanitary facilities (toilet and shower) and dry areas (should we unexpectedly catch a thunderstorm) are also available.
