Racha Yai Snorkeling - 1 Day

Lazy day at the bosom of nature, white sand beaches, beautiful coral reefs and juicy greenery. Let’s get lost in paradise for one day!

That’s one of these chances when you can do whatever you feel like doing while the boat is moored in the bay for a few long hours: it’s up to you only if you go either for snorkelling or canoeing or paddle boarding or maybe sunbathing on one of the sundecks on the boat or just at the beach while enjoying colourful drink. You can also have fun at the big water slide or cool down yourself in an air-conditioned and comfy dry area on the boat, which offers you also cosy sofas and pillows! Shortly speaking: it’s a paradise for those who love water activities as well as Eden-like seascapes around.

Let yourself get lost for one day in paradise! We’ll take you on big and one of the comfiest boats in Phuket. Don’t waste your time sitting on minivan and driving around Phuket for a few hours and have some breakfast with a cup of coffee instead while enjoying breathtaking views around you during the boat trip. Trust us – you won’t regret it! An environment of Racha Yai Island looks exactly like Similan Islands (the same huge granite stones, pristine beaches, lush greenery and turquoise warm water like at Similan, for real!), but the approximate time needed for reaching the place is way shorter than the one needed to reach Similan Islands. Moreover, you don’t have to be stuck to your seat (as it is on speedboat) for entire time, on this big diving boat you can enjoy yourself in a way which you like the most: by lying down either in sun or in shadow or in air-conditioned room, by having breakfast/lunch, sleeping, reading book, walking around the boat or talking to other people and drinking nice coffee at the same time. That sounds way more comfortable than whilst travelling with the speedboat, doesn’t it? Also, Racha Yai Island is opened for tourists all year long (Similan Island are opened for a few months in the year only), the boat is moored for a few hours in the quiet bay so you’re protected from waves and boat swinging (what means less chance for sea-sickness).

 

On this tour, you can try scuba diving, too! Although to make it happen, we need to know about this in advance, so we can get diving gear and insurance for you. That’s the best offer for families because when some family members might be diving, the other ones might enjoy themselves in a totally different way!

Racha Yai is less commercial than Phi Phi and Similan Island, which doesn’t mean that the bay or beach will be available for us only! Although this place is more popular for diving than for other water activities, that’s why you can expect fewer tourists around you.

On this tour, we don’t provide a private boat for our use only! Please, be prepared for sharing space on board with other nationalities.
