I had never been diving before, but wanted to give it a shot with some experienced diver friends of mine when we were in Thailand. We split off into groups, and Stephanie took me off to help me out with my first dive. It was a bit stressful doing everything for the first time, but she did a really great... More

We went for two dives with the Railay Dive Center team. The team is very nice and they provide everything so that you have a good diving experience.

It was renovation of the shop that caused all the confusion. Now it's finished and shop itself doesn't look bare anymore. There is new staff both in the shop and on the boat and brand new boat as well.

My wife and I were in Railay Beach for our honeymoon. We had just come from Khao Lak and Phi Phi and were diving in those 2 places. We walked into the dive shop in Railay Beach and were trying to get some info from the guy working there. He seemed distracted and kept looking down. I asked if anything... More

I've been to a few dive centres and Railay Dive Centre is one of the more organised dive centres that I've been to. Once we got on the boat, all my equipment were in the box which is a good start but what wowed me is the refreshment station. From tea to energy drinks to Oreo cookies and sweets, I've... More

This was fantastic from the outset. Efficient and friendly email communication. Amazing staff:diver ratio. Wonderful instructors. Great dive boat and food. And, best of all, amazing diving. I highly recommend Railay Dive Center.

Office staff was helpful, no drunk office girl, shame! Dive was well organized and well briefed, Fran the guide was excellent, and very helpful. We did too great dives out at PHI PHI, relaxing cruise out to the islands, the boat was no crowded so lots of room. The kit was good quality. All in all a great day.

I upgraded my diver's license from Open Water to Advanced with Railay Dive crew. The visit to the King Cruises Wreck in 30 meters was the cherry on the cake. The crew is very professional and experienced and treat you as a good friend - if I visit Krabi again, I'll make sure to reserve my dives from them!
