Raya Island Private Boat Charter

The two idyllic Racha Islands; Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi, are also sometimes referred to as Raya Island and provide the ideal destination to enjoy nature. With some of the best snorkelling reefs in Thailand and quiet, tropical white powdery beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters, they provide a balanced combination of relaxing, tranquil locations with amazing sea life.

It is most popular to explore Koh Racha Yai (situated just 20km south of Phuket, and a mere 45-minute speedboat ride away); however, to experience the plethora of marine life on offer, 5 Star Marine can take you a little further to its smaller twin, Koh Racha Noi – An uninhabited rocky island, with plenty of fantastic snorkelling bays.

On the way home, make a stop at Mai Ton Island, which is well known for its dolphin spotting. You might just get the opportunity to experience a pod of these inquisitively playful creatures up close and personal. As intensely social animals, you might be lucky enough to have them play near the boat’s wake. Our experienced team will take you at the perfect spotting time – normally late afternoon, before you return to pier for the day.

Why 5 Star Marine?

Racha is a stunning destination for relaxation, fantastic beaches and plenty of snorkelling, and 5 Star Marine know exactly where to go for the best bays, quiet beaches and coral reefs in this area, and can also suggest some idyllic restaurants to stop at. With many years of practice, they are able to suggest when is best to try to spot dolphins on your way home too.
