Racha Noi – meaning small Racha is located a further ½ an hour by daytrip boat from its sister island Racha Yai (big Racha). These sites also offer clear water and there is a good chance of buddying up with the odd Manta Ray amongst other marine life like lionfish, ribbon eels, scorpionfish, cuttlefish etc. The shallower sites on the west side of the island are also good for beginner divers and snorkellers.
However the South Tip of Racha Noi is suitable for experienced divers only. This site can have extremely strong currents from the submerged pinnacle at 9 meters depth which drops down to around 40 meters. This dive site consists mainly of boulder type formations with a few corals and sea fans.
