The well appointed PADI 5-Star Dive Center, with a 3m deep purpose-built instructional pool, is fully equipped and offers a variety of dive trips and courses to start you on your dive adventure. The diving around Racha Island is pleasant if not world class. However if treated as an added activity for your stay at the Racha, then you will not be dissapointed. The island would be a great place to learn to dive. The Racha would be a good option to add on before of after a visit to the Similan and Surin Islands where the diving is considerably better.
