Was transferred from a longtail boat into our dive boat from there. The dive boat then set off to Railay beach to pickup others... More

This was my first dive experience and unfortunately Railey dive center was a bad choice! We were promised one instructor for 2 people at the office but when we got there it was 4 people for one instructor and the other two were experienced divers. This was not what we were promised and a waste of money really. The French... More

He said phi phi would provide dreeper dives, and more and bigger... More

All if the dice staff were professional and used the padi briefing guides etc. the boat was a decent size and was set up for... More

So many things went wrong... First of all, we went to the office in Railay, where we talked to Nick, who promised us "everything". He said we'd have breakfast, but there was none. There was no tea also. The boat was small and uncomfortable, with no decent place to relax. The team was not very attentive, not checking out credentials.... More

I have emailed RAILEY DIVE CENTER 2 weeks prior to our arrival to arrange a dive. They have advised me to come in the shop when we are there and we can book any day trip we would like. I have found it a little strange but maybe is the norm for local dive shops. I can assure you this... More

Let's start with the bottom-line: go diving with Railay Dive Center! We stepped into their office to check out possibilities to go to Hin Muang & Hin Daeng from Railay and in the end we made 8 amazing dives with them. Five of these dives were part of our Advanced Open Water Diver course. Fran, our dive instructor, did a... More

Superb dive experience! Upgraded from CMAS first star to Advanced Open Water Diver under supervision of Fran. Felt a lot more confident under water after his tips and tricks. Did 8 beautiful dives including Hin Daeng and Hin Muang where we encountered Manta Rays. Service is very good, respectful and flexible (rescheduling dives because of sickness). Would recommend Railay Dive... More

Due to a mistake on my part, I was unable to dive with Railay Dive Centre. However, after going to several dive centre, only Railay Dive Centre was assuring enough to accept inexperienced divers. Other Dive Centre I visited commented "diving is not safe for inexperience divers". This is despite me, wanting to book the Discovery Diving package.

Railay Dive Center ha mandado un servicio muy profesional! Hemos tenido un dia increible con ellos :-).
