As one of the furthest islands off Phuket's southern coast, you'll find Racha Yai to be delightfully uncrowded and unspoilt. Boasting mile upon mile of white sandy beaches and world class diving in beautifully clear waters, just a one hour boat ride from Phuket. A typical dive here is a gentle drift along a sloping rock face, sprinkled with a variety of coral forests. Large schools of false barracuda, octopi and cuttlefish can often be spotted, as well as other more common tropical species and Manta Rays. Dives at Racha Yai are calm and easy with depths ranging from 2 meters through to 30+ meters making it perfect for those wanting a relaxing dive and first timers too. The team of highly experienced staff at South Siam have an excellent reputation for safety and instruction. This will be a sure contender for best dive experience, whether you're a proficient diver or complete novice.
