Racha Noiis the most southerly dive site visited on a day trip. It is located approximately 25km south of Phuket and offers some truly spectacular diving.It boasts scenery similar to that found at the famous Similan Islands, with giant underwater boulders covered with a variety of coral. Visibility is excellent ranging from 20 to 40 metres. Water depths are generally deeper than on Racha Yai and the tidal currents are stronger. This makes the diving more challenging than on the sister island to the north.

The northern tip of Racha Noi features a large underwater ridge, running from the surface down to depths of 40m. Large numbers of reef fish, shoals of barracuda and occasionally manta ray can be seen here. At the southern tip of the island, there is a remote little beach and a dive site which features a reef with depths ranging between 10 and 60 metres. The high chance of seeing large marine animals here makes this dive site something special. Whale sharks, manta rays, stingrays, leopard sharks and yellowtail barracuda are commonly sighted in this area.
