Raya Island, A Special Place In The 5 Star Heart
Raya Island also is known as Racha Island or King Island has a special place in the heart of the team here at 5 Star Marine. You see, the first place that we ever visited on our first ever boat, Lucus 1, was Raya Island.
Raya Island is a favourite location of Shaun and Lisa the Co-Owners at 5 Star Marine. Prior to owning 5 Star Marine, they would often take short Staycation breaks to the Rayaburi Resort which is located on Raya Island.
When Lucus 1 was coming out of the factory and due to go to water it just happened to be Lisa’s birthday and as a celebration for both the boat and Lisa’s birthday, the very first trip on Lucus 1 was to Raya Island.
Some snorkelling, beach time and lunch at the Rayaburi Resort was all enjoyed and then off to Mai Ton where they were lucky enough to see Dolphins. It was such a wonderful day for the 5 Star team, Lisa, Shaun and their friends.
This is why Raya Island Private Speedboat Tours have a special spot in the hearts of the 5 Star Marine team here in Phuket.
Shaun is the Co-Owner and Founder of 5 Star Marine Phuket. After visiting Phuket for a holiday he never left and over 13 years later he calls Phuket home with his wife and kids. Shaun is passionate about Phuket and the Islands surrounding Phuket and loves helping fellow travellers explore.
