Full description
Transfer from your hotel to Chalong pier, where you will meet your official Thai, English-speaking guide and board the boat. After a small briefing, enjoy a 1.5-hour cruise. Enjoy free time on board to relax, eat a light breakfast or delicious fresh tropical fruit and sunbathe on the sundeck. When you reach Racha Yai island, enjoy a snorkeling session supervised by our Thai guide who is a specialist in marine life. If you don't like snorkeling, you can play on the toboggan with your kids or go around and explore the underwater life with our clear glass-bottomed kayak for 2 people. After lunch, go to the island if you want and explore the white sandy beaches.

If you are a certified diver or you just want to discover the wonderful underwater world, don't hesitate to go diving. The multilingual diving instructor team will introduce you to the underwater wonders in the tropical waters of the Andaman Sea. The diving course starts from the age of 8 years with the Bubble Maker program. Discover the aquatic world in a depth of 2 meters under the supervision of a qualified instructor. Parents can watch or take pictures from the surface while snorkeling or aboard a glass bottom kayak. For children 10 years old and over, take the Discovery Scuba Diving (DSD) course. After some exercises near the surface, descend to a depth of maximum 12 meters. Your instructor will adapt to your level and give you confidence so that you can discover the underwater world in the best conditions. For certified divers, experience wonderful dives in very clear waters. At certain times of the year and if conditions allow, visit 2 shipwrecks on the east side of Racha Yai. Discover a multitude of fauna and flora including barracudas, parrot fish, lionfish.

On the way back to Phuket, enjoy the sundeck and fresh tropical fruit. After a 1.5 hour cruise, join a minibus and return to your hotel.

Ein toller Tag

Wir waren mit 7 Personen zu diesem Ausflug. Der Transfer war gut und sehr pünktlich. Das Beste waren unsere Tauchlehrer Philipp und Nikolas. Sie waren geduldig, sehr nett und hatten viel Humor. Das Essen und der Katamaran waren sehr gut. Ein toller Tauch Hotspot. Wir Erwachsenen und die Kinder hatten viel Spass. Danke an das gesamte Team.
