racha yai island

Koh Racha Yai Island (Big King Island) is located about one and a half-hour boat ride from Chalong bay, where the day trip departs from on the South of Phuket Island. A wide variety of underwater life such as Barracuda, Giant Moray, Stonefish, Lion-fish, Parrotfish and Butterflyfish make this their home.

If you look carefully, you can find some hidden rare gems such as Pipefish, Leaf-fish, Frogfish and Nudibranchs. Racha Yai has shallow sandy bottoms as well as deeper depths with excellent visibility all year round, which makes it the perfect scuba diving location for all levels of diver.
