We recommend to go with the SSI Open Water course for several reason (excellent online material, diver app and customer service)

Both SSI and PADI are equally recognize around the world. If the diver wants to go with the PADI certification, the diver will be charge THB 1,500. The main reason is that PADI requires high fees for certification.

> Visited Islands | In Depth

Koh Racha Yai is the largest of the two islands 🏝️🏝️ located off the Southeastern coast of Phuket.

Different kinds of corals can be spotted here with the Staghorn coral 🌿 predominating in many areas. You will find all common tropical fish 🐠 right at the beginning of your dive.

The marine life is rich and species 🐡 such as Barracuda, Tuna 🐟 and Milk Fish are usual sights.

While it may be awesome to already discover the rich marine life in Racha Yai while snorkeling, diving would lead you into a whole new underwater experience. Amongst the varieties of marine life that you would be able to see, get ready to spot the hidden scorpion fish waiting to prey!

Moreover the better place for diving is located on the East coast along the hard coral reef where there are shipwrecks 🛳️ and good drifts.

Many dive sites around Koh Racha Yai including Lucy’s ReefReef “Do little Do” where Stonefish and Batfish 🦇 may be chanced upon. Also not forgetting Marla’s mystery, a wreck that became home to morays , groupers and lionfish.

On the northern end of the island, you can find two beautiful little bays. They are  known for their deep clear waters and the colorful coral formations.

Note that bigger can be found around Racha Yai such as turtles 🐢, leopard sharks 🦈 and manta rays but as they are not sedentary species they may or may not be there. We often spot dolphins swimming by the boat 🐬!

This scuba eden has gained its reputation for its beautiful clear waters and white sandy beaches 🏖️. In fact being renowned for its great visibility while diving even during the different seasons, nothing beats learning how to dive in Racha Yai.
