I went to Koh Tao alst year and WISH I could go back this time.
I recommend planet Scuba, really great instructors, I did my O.W there
and the group only included one other person who was my travelling
The price was really cheap too-about 70 for the O.W.
As for advanced diving i am not too sure as it was my first trip but
we did get to dive with a 12m Whale shark on our last day and even the
"experienced" divers seemed dead e***d about this. There were about
5 sightings when we were there for about 9 days!
On a lst note the dive sights are far nearer to Koh Tao, so unless you
like long boat rides i'd miss Samui!!
Have good time and have a plate of No name shrimp for me!!
Accomodation-I would have to recommend sairee cottages prety basic but
clean I suppose it depends what you want, realy nice family runs them
and they are located next to one of the Planet Scuba Offices so you
can get a free lift to the dive boat.
Koh tao is a lot smaller and less spolit than Koh samui so if that is
what you are looking for then go for it.
