Koh Racha Yai snorkeling tours
Racha Yai Island day trips
Choose one of these tours to Raya Yai
Snorkeling island close to Phuket
We recommend Racha Yai snorkeling tours because Racha Island is close to Phuket (25 minutes by speedboat from Chalong Bay) and the granite island is surrounded by clear water with large schools of fish.
Fish that you can see include schools of sergeant major, snapper, fusilier, titan trigger fish, clown fish (Nemo), lion fish, parrot fish, banner fish, moorish idols, trumpet fish and much more.
Crocodile longtoms swim just below the surface, blue spotted sting rays and flatfish try to hide on the sandy bottom.
There are several varieties of hard coral including brain, cabbage, plate, leaf and stag horn coral. Plus sea fans, sea whips, anemones, sea stars, sea cucumbers and spiny sea urchins.
Eagle eyed snorkelers should also be able to spot moray eels, mantis shrimps, garden eels, blennies, gobies, nudibranchs and scorpion fish.
