  • Discover Scuba Diving Racha Yai From Phuket

    3. 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 Racha Island

we will pick you up in front of your hotel. we take you to the port and there you wait until the boat is ready then thanks to cars you go to your catamaran. From there we place you on a table according to the pack you have chosen. and the start of a fantastic day with a very pretty first island with everything you need to take beautiful photos. Then head to a second island for quality snorkeling. there is something to enjoy with lobsters and multiple fish. coming from the islands i see recommend this dive spot. then return to the port with a DJ on fire and good cocktails as well as a crazy crew. I just regret the difficulty to have the cushions on the front of the boat (cushion at the top when we are there)

They pick me up on time and when we arrived at the peer where the boat was waiting, they took our temperature to make sure we were not sick. This was really great as I was concerned about being on a boat for 1 day with other people. The staff was great and really friendly. The drinks and the food really matched my expectations. They also provided us some snacks in the afternoon. The DJ was awesome and played some nice EDM and house music tunes.

The excursion was brilliant. We were on the upper deck that had fab day beds. However the whole party was on the lower deck which is where we spent most of our time at. The crew was brilliant and attentive. The catamaran itself was lovely. We met some great people on the boat and had a fantastic time. Drinks weren’t expensive and were delicious. Definitely recommend and would have done it all again.

There was a wedding reception with the English on the boat. Great atmosphere, it was fun! The first stop was unnecessary as it was neither suitable for snorkeling nor the beach was very attractive. The second stop was better! The boat is anchored directly in a bay, so more fun in the water!

Good halfday tour! The guide was friendly and funny and I had a great time with my friend. Amazing spots around to see and nice water!
