Racha Yai is the nearest of Phuket diving sites and offers local year around scuba diving in Thailand. The beautiful and shallow bays of Racha Yai are known for both clear water and colorful coral formations. All dive sites at Racha Yai are suitable for both scuba divers and snorkelers on holiday in Phuket. The best diving is off the east coast where there are a selection of sheltered bays. Here you'll be diving along sloping rocks that is covered with colourful hard corals and large schools of tropical fish.
There are also 3 wrecks here that make for great diving as all three are at depths suitable to Open Water Divers. 2 of these have been place here for divers so have had all hazards removed and are more than safe to go inside, through the cabins, up the stairs and into the wheel house. The other wreck is an old wooden boat which is now teeming with life living in the old rotting timbers.
Racha Yai also has many other good locations to dive as there are bays on all sides so what ever the weather does there is always some great diving. There are not many places you can run in to a pair of elephants underwater or a small temple or Buddha statues and even a motorbike.
