Welcome to the photo- and eco-friendly Railay Dive Center. Here you will find high-quality snorkeling trips, underwater adventures, all PADI diving courses- both recreational and technical- and a great opportunity to learn more about underwater photography, all in an environmentally friendly manner.

We do our diving and snorkeling trips to the beautiful Andaman sea area surrounding Krabi every day throughout the year. The trip starts at 08.00 from Railay Dive Center in the Railay west beach walking street. We will pick up the customers from Ao Nang a bit earlier (free pick up from Ao Nang area) and will be back in Railay around 13.30- 17.30, depending on the destination of the day. All our diving and snorkeling trips include equipment, professional and friendly guiding, water and/ or refreshments and a traditional, tasty- but not too spicy, thai-style lunch that will be enjoyed between the dives either on the boat or on one of the islands, depending on the chosen dive sites.
