Next to a wide range of smaller critters like the Seahorse, Pipefish, Scorpion fish and Nudis, there is great schooling fish life too, including Snappers, Bigmouth Mackerels, Barracudas, Queen fish, Tunas and Oriental Bonitos. Glimpses of Zebra sharks, which gave the Site its name are highlights.

Racha Noi:

  • Rating: 4*
  • Depth: 30+
  • Boat Trip Time: 1H30

Racha Noi, compared to Racha Yai, is an uninhabited island. The waters are clear and deep with moderate to fairly strong currents.

It is a good place to spot larger fish such as Barracudas, Jacks, Manta Rays and Zebra Sharks. It offers beautiful underwater formations with fringing reefs, sand rubble, rocky seabed and granite boulders encrusted with sponges, hard and soft coral.

Cracks, crevices and coral provide a great habitat for all different kinds of marine life, including schools of Sergeant majors, rainbow runners and Snappers.

In shallow water Squid and Cuttlefish are frequently seen along with colourful Nudibranchs and Flatworms on the steep faces of the rocks.

With 9 different dive sites this island offers quite a variety. Hard corals, large bolder, soft corals reef-slopes and drop-offs; every dive site has its own attraction.

Leopard sharks are very common and with a little luck divers might encounter a majestic manta ray.

  • Depth: 32
  • Boat Trip Time: 1H30

Dive Site Description:

On May 1997 this passenger ferry sunk, on its way to Phi Phi, hitting the Anemone Reef…

Now, this big wreck sits on a sandy bottom of 32 meters. The water conditions require a good level and a certain experience to dive on.

Strong currents are not uncommon and the visibility can be much reduced too. Due to the wreck’s location that close to the neighboring sites Shark Point and Anemone Reef, it is teeming with life and had a very fast population growth in just a short time.

Big pelagics, Turtles, Bamboo Sharks, Nudibranchs and loads of Scorpion fish can be seen here.

The Wreck is an extremely popular dive.

Anemone Reef

  • Rating: 5*
  • Depth: 26
  • Boat Trip Time: 1H30

A small underwater pinnacle, sitting on a fairly flat, sand rubble bottom, entirely covered in anemones, offering a perfect hideout for small porcelain crabs, shrimps and countless anemone fish.

The profusion of sea anemones and the nutrient rich water are a magnet to a constant parade of reef fish seeking food and shelter.

Schools of snappers, mackerels and jacks along with larger game fish like Tuna and even Wahoo, as well as the occasional Zebra Shark can be seen here.

Currents can vary from middle to pretty strong.

A large diving platform to enter and exit the water supervised with a CCTV camera for your extra safety and convenience for the captain. The main cabin has cabby holes to put away personal belongings. The service on board includes: complementary tea, coffee and water available all day as well as a light breakfast in the morning, a Thai buffet for lunch and an extremely helpful and friendly crew with Thai smiles.

The speed boats are designed for divers’ comfort and safety. They offer the opportunity to access dive sites quickly and leave enough time to explore Phuket’s natural wonders.

The typical local boats are called “longtail” boats because of the engine’s design and provide an easy access to dive sites that are close to the dive centres.

Speed boat and longtail boat trips are seasonal and can be arranged between November and April.
