“FANTASTIC dive centre, GREAT people, .................. friends.”
Raya Dive Centre is situated next to the Ban Raya Resort and Spa's reception area and is family owned and managed by Nana , Ton and Bao.
Ton, Nana and Bao are Marine Scientist's and are positive and passionate about their environment. They run a friendly, organised and professional centre and their knowledge of all things 'SEA', adds a wonderful dimension to the whole experience.
They are not linked to 'RAYA divers' who are in Patok Bay. The names caused some confusion for us when we were doing our research before booking. Although their web site IS www.rayadivers.com Make sure that you are communicating with Nana or Bao.
Weather conditions were not great, so we were restricted to diving around Ko Racha Yai and did not get to one of the areas best sites on Racha Noi. However, the diving was very good. We did not expected this of Thailand, other than possibly The Similan Islands. The diving included two wrecks, coral nursery sites, huge brain corals and large schools of fish with plenty in between. Definitely worth more than one visit. Check out http://www.rayadives.com/latest-news for the short video or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE8O5N-ZKuM for the 10min version.
Friendly, professional and passionate about the environment. A wonderful holiday dive trip.
Well Done Raya Dive Centre and Thank you Nana and Ton (sorry about the late review)
We will see you again soon.........................
All in all a very pleasant stay at a modest resort with a FANTASTIC dive centre.
