Racha Noi

Racha Noi day trip

Update Nov 2016 – this tour is no longer running

Last week we added a 3 islands day trip that included Racha Noi, Racha Yai and Coral Island.

We now have a new day trip (starting 1 Nov) which will just visit Racha Noi, skipping Racha Yai altogether.

Racha Noi is now preferred to Racha Yai because it’s visited by far fewer boats, it’s uninhabited and the water is clearer.

  • fewer boats visit Racha Noi Island.
  • it takes fewer passengers per speedboat. If 22 or fewer passengers book a twin engine speedboat with a capacity of 30 is used. If more than 22 passengers book a larger 3 engine speedboat is used. It has a capacity for 42 but numbers will be limited to 35. This gives a bit more space on board which is especially useful if the weather turns wet and bumpy and everyone want’s to sit in the back.
  • transfers are provided from anywhere on Phuket island (the Racha Yai tour only includes transfers from south Phuket). The boat departs from the Royal Phuket Marina which is easier to get to than Chalong bay pier where the Racha Yai trips depart from. Because this trip takes fewer guests less time is spend being transferred to the pier and hanging around before departure. So pick up times are a bit later, you get to enjoy breakfast in your resort.
