Local islands offer shallow, easy diving to max 20 meters with average visibility of 10- 15 meters. There are plenty of colorful soft corals and fantastic macro life, such as Nudibranch, Nemo, Seahorse, Bamboo shark, Cuttlefish, Pipefish or Kuhl’s stingray. There are also some beautiful swim throughs and caves on several islands that offer a bit of safe exitement in the dives and wonderful frames for underwater photographs. Local Islands are only a short boat ride away, 30-40 minutes away from Railay depending on the dive site.
The Local islands trip is done with either a longtail boat or in the high season, sometimes with the Big Boat.
