  • Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

    1. Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

    Have you always wondered what it is like to breathe underwater? If so you do not necessarily have to pay for a course to have certification. Begin your diving adventure at your own pace. During the experience, you get an introduction and briefing on scuba diving and you are taught how to use the scuba diving equipment in shallow waters. Please note that this is not a scuba diving certification. Breathing underwater is a whole new experience - it takes a few minutes to get used to it. This is not a typical human behavior and it is completely normal to be a little hesitant to put your face in the water and inhale at the beginning. However, within a few moments, your body adapts and you will be taken over by the freedom of movement while discovering the amazing marine life!

What people are saying about Ko Yao District

Excellent tour and highly recommended to anyone looking for an authentic Thai experience close to Phuket away from the masses. You‘ll have the chance to explore beautiful and calm Ko Yao Noi (small-scale farming, mangroves, rubber plantations etc.) by bike in a small group, meet its friendly residents and swim/hang out on a quiet beach of a neughbouring micro-island. Tour was perfectly organised and guided by experienced Day and Joris (speaks English, Thai, French and German) who took care of safety, didn‘t rush, served delicious food and gave interesting explanations of things to see on the island and around. Thank you very much!

Great tour to get to know a little "real" Thailand. The bike course is well selected and offers a good mix. The guides pass on a lot of knowledge and make you feel safe at all times.

A very good day out. Very well organised and good fun. Two excellent guides with interesting cycling. The bikes were new and in good condition.
