Castaway Divers is a small friendly PADI Dive Resort, running daily fun dives and offering all PADI diving courses from discovery experiences to Dive Master training. We dive from traditional local longtail boats and limit our dive groups to 4 divers per guide for enjoyable, relaxed diving. We are located just outside Tarutao National Marine Park, home to some of Thailand’s most pristine soft corals, hard corals, and exotic fish life.
