    We had 2 great days of snorkeling with Adang using local longtails. We had a snorkel guide named Sea that was great and a captain named Nui who was also great. The guides showed us many creatures, was patient and allowed us to stay longer at spots we liked. Also they allowed us to return to a spot we really loved. The dive shop also lent me a weight belt which was very nice of them. Let them know ahead if you need bc it was difficult for them to obtain one at the last minute. Food was great too.

    I did a refreshing dive and had Aidan as a dive instructor. I am very satisfied with the guidance and the service. This dive center is definitely recommended.

    Myself and my wife had a really great time diving with Keira. It was my wife’s first time diving and she felt really safe, calm and comfortable underwater with Keira. We would highly recommend Keira for anyone wishing to dive when visiting Koh Lipe. We also took a Yoga class to which we found fun and challenging, shame we only had a couple of days there we would have liked to have done more. Thank you Keira hopefully see you again soon, from Keith & Apple x

    I brought my friends from korea to here again. Last time we were here in 2015, thisntime we did advance open water course. It was a wonderful trip ever! We have a great time and nice hospitility. Staff also are friendly and good take care.I highly recommend Castaway for anyone interested in taking a dive course. The combination of knowledgeable instructors, comprehensive curriculum, emphasis on safety, and excellent facilities made for an outstanding learning experience. I feel confident and excited to continue exploring the underwater world thanks to this course.

    Me and my boyfriend had no plan of diving at first when we arrived to Koh Lipe but then we walked by Forra Diving Resort and ran in to one of the instructors, Garth. We decided to book a try out dive to see if we would like it and finish the whole open water scuba diving course. The whole trip ended with us finishing the open water scuba diving course and starting our advanced open water diving course with a dive in the beautiful dive site 8 mile rock. We can honestly say that this wouldn’t have been such an amazing experience without Garth. He is hands down one of the best instructors and divers on this island and we felt so safe and comfortable the whole time. Thank you Garth for this amazing few days and we hope to come back some day and experience them again with you!

    Beautiful beach, lovely restaurants, bars and shops - a great buzz to the place! Pattaya beach is beautiful water, clear and calm. Only didn’t give it 5/5 because of sea urchins on sunrise beach - I put my knee down on one (seems to be a common occurrence yet no signage warn). But great medical care to get it seen to!

    Amazing place to watch the sun set on Ko Lipe - sadly only spoilt by a woman so determined to hear the sound of her own voice on her phone 🤬

    Perfect white sand beach, nice snorkling right from the beach, basically a dream.
    BUT... many boats and the longtail boats not even respect the areas closed off for the swiming. They drive right through.
    No care for the invironment, e.g. fire shows each night where the gasolin or whatever they use just drops in the sand... who cares. Its all about business

    Thank you to the kind lady that runs DJL dive shop. I needed a weight belt and weights for free diving. I emailed several shops and none could provide a weight belt even if I offered to pay. DJL was happy to lend me one with weights for free, emailed me back and even waited after closing time for me! And then the shop I booked my tour with found me one right by my hotel and the DJL lady was fine with me using the other shops belt to avoid return issues. She had waited for me, flagged me down from my taxi and afterward showed me the way back to walking street What a kind, helpful and nice dive shop! Thank you again :))). DJL IS THE BEST👍😊🙏

    We’ve been diving here for almost a week. I did my PADI Open Water course and my boyfriend completed the PADI Rescue Diver course.

    It was my first time diving, and my instructor (Pa Pa), really made me feel at ease and safe. He was very relaxed and took plenty of time to make me familiar with the equipment, the theory and the necessary skills. During the course there was a lot of personal attention. Within three days I got certified.

    The people/instructors at the diving school are very hospitable, friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable.

    The diving spots around the island are really good. Plenty of opportunity to see a lot of nice and colorful fish, such as: Barracudas, Puffer fish, Stone fish, Nemos (also really tiny ones), octopus and plenty more.

    I would definitely recommend this place!!

    If you’re up for a real -back to basic- experience, you can stay in a bamboo bungalow at the dive resort. There are also more luxurious bungalows, but these are sold out quickly. We supposed to stay at the bamboo huts for three nights but extended our stay by another three nights, because we liked it so much
