Koh Racha Noi

  • North Tip

    Level of difficulty: ★★★☆☆
    Current: Mild to Moderate
    Description: In the shallow, North Tip is covered with hard corals. The steep slope will bring you down to about 25m fairly quickly. On the West, you may be able to see big feather-tail stingray amongst the big boulders. There’s usually stronger current on the East, but it is also the current that brings in food for Manta.

As you go deeper, you will find the beautiful submerged pinnacles at about 23-25m. You can find big school of barracuda, jacks and leopard sharks.

    Racha Noi Bay

  • South Tip

    Level of difficulty: ★★★★★
    Current: Moderate to Strong
    Description: One of our favourite dive site due to it’s beautiful seascape and the marine life that you see. Leopard sharks, Manta, big school of barracudas are amongst other big underwater creatures that you often find at South Tip. It’s a relatively small dive site but it’s teeming with life. Current can be a bit strong but just drift along to take in the scenery but hang on to wait for big fish to swim pass. You’d never know what you might encounter.
