Racha Noi

Racha Noi is the most isolated of the two islands, but also a popular dive site for experienced divers. Indeed, the depth is greater and the currents stronger than généralemnt near its sister to the north island. You will encounter huge rocks that cause the presence of manta rays and whale sharks. The northern tip of the island offers the opportunity for a good multilevel dive along a large pinnacle where it is not impossible to meet particular reef sharks.

Off the southern tip, the site is ideal for a drift dive along the spectacular scenery at the top of a large rock formation surrounded by deep water. At Southwest, a wooden boat wreck attracts a multitude of beautiful reef fish. Racha Noi finally offers many wonderful opportunities for deep dives, but because of possible strong currents, many diving clubs will not take them that divers have a license "advanced certification".
