Racha Yai offers peaceful and very easy dives. Our boat is always anchored in a bay sheltered from currents and waves. The water is very clear and the sandy bottom white as snow.
Many things to see here: barracuda schools, stingrays, flounders, octopus, snappers, morays, parrotfish etc. If you happen to kick up sand from the bottom it will not really reduce visibility, but many fish will come and see if you happened to kick up something to eat.
On the eastside of the island there is a 20 meters long small wreck called the Haruby. It was sunk on purpose for divers to explore and is a very swim through. Around it lionfish and batfish can be found.
• Easy and simple dives - recommended for beginners
• Depths 5 - 20 meters
• Visibility usually good (15 - 20m)
Over 80 meters in length, the King Cruiser catamaran wreck is has become a home for literally thousands of fish. Since it's sinking in 1997 the wreck has fully grown with soft corals and clams making it one of the most colorful wrecks known. On clear days perhaps the best dive site around Phuket.
During the day we also dive a reef called Shark Point, named after leopard sharks that live around it. Also on the list is a wall dive at Koh Doc Mai Island, known for its small caverns and macro life such as seahorses and ghost pipefish. Under the rocks you can also find Bamboo sharks sleeping during the day.
• Three completely different dive sites - lots to see
• Visibility varies between good (20m) and bad (5m)
• Depths 5 - 30 meters
Phi Phi islands are known as the most beautiful in islands in Thailand. Limestone cliffs rise over a 100 meters straight out of the water and divide the sea into dreamlike lagoons. Also diving in a setting like this is marvelous.
This trip is a good one if you wish to see turtles or sharks. Blacktips live on the west side but they can be quite shy. Leopard sharks are seen now and then. Turtles are more frequently seen as well as cuttlefish, jacks, morays, pipefish, flatworms and thousands of snappers. Some of the sites have huge fan coral gardens.
• Most diversity in fish species - best chance to see sharks
• Visibility varies between good (20m) and mediocre (10m)
• Depth 5 - 30 meters
The island of Racha Noi is the most far away if measured from the mainland, making its waters the clearest. Formed from huge granite boulders Racha Noi's scenery is magnificent on both sides of the surface. Now and then big Manta Rays swim around the island looking for companions, but this is quite rare.
Instead it is normal to see octopus, cuttlefish, squid, lionfish, morays and lobsters how inhabit the hard coral reefs. If the day is not windy we will finish the day with a wreck dive at the Haruby. This 20 meter long wreck is an easy swim through and around it can be found stingrays, barracudas and batfish.
• Very easy destination with lots to see - on lucky dives big pelagics too
• Visibility almost always very good (+20m)
• Depths 5 - 30 meters
Daytrips depart from Chalong pier in Phuket. You will get picked up from your hotel around 7:15 - 7:45 and brought to the boat. The hotel pickup is free for these areas: Chalong, Rawai, Kata, Karon, Kamala and Patong. If you stay in a different area unfortunately we will have to add a transportation fee which is usually 500 – 1 500 THB depending on the area.
On the boat breakfast and drinks are serves, during the day also lunch and fruit. After all the dives we head back to Phuket and return to pier around 18:00 to transport you back to your hotel.
You should bring with you a swimming suit, towel, and sunglasses, clothes that cover from the sun or sun lotion. The boats have two levels, one for tanners and one who don't like the sun.
The payment is done by cash on the boat. If the diver does not have equipment of his own, fee for rental equipment is 500 THB per day. It is a good idea also to bring normal socks with you if you are afraid the fins might hurt your feet. Underwater camera can be rented for 500 THB a day.
Please inform us before of any rental needs you might have. The diver's companion can board the boat as snorkelers for 2 000 THB per person.
A diving insurance is mandatory for all fun divers on daytrips. If you do not have a diving insurance (for example DAN, Aquamed etc.) you will have to buy one through us for 300 THB per day. This will cover treatment for all diving accidents up to 500 000 THB. We recommend buying your own diving insurance as most dive centers around the world do not provide one.
In case you get sick and want to cancel the trip please inform us on the day before 14:00 the latest! After this we will have to charge you the full trip price. In these cases we can give you a note for your insurance company to retrieve lost expenses.
