Koh Racha

You don’t have to stay on Koh Racha to enjoy the diving here. Dive operators in Phuket do visit Koh Racha too. If you choose accommodation on the island, apart from having a more blissful experience, shore diving will be available to you. Boat diving will zip you around the island’s bays to discover its underwater gems. Conditions, on the whole, are bright and clear with some gentle drift diving possible too. Sites are suitable for all levels. Koh Racha Noi offers diving for the more experienced but do be aware that this is around an hour away if you are diving from a traditional longtail boat. Longtail boats are like large rowing boats but powered instead by a propeller attached to a long metal rod sticking out of the end of the boat. Some boats have shade but maybe aren’t so comfortable for an hour particularly if seas are a little choppy.

Koh Racha Sea Life

You can be lucky at Koh Racha Noi with whale shark and manta ray sightings. The waters boast diverse and colourful reef inhabitants and hard and soft corals. There’s a possibility of seeing a turtle but expect parrotfish, butterflyfish and wrasse as well as the ever graceful Moorish idol. For Nemo hunters, there’s plenty of variety of anemone fish. The smaller yellowtail barracuda school above the reef. Look in the sand for garden eels and flounder and keep an eye out for a variety of rays.

How To Get There

Koh Racha’s closest airport is Phuket. From the airport, it’s an hour’s transfer via road to the pier at Chalong. The crossing to Koh Racha takes around half an hour. Some accommodations have their own transfers to make this easier for you but do check.
