I plan to go to Ko Tao in end of December or beginning of January to do the PADI Openwater Diving course. Does anybody know if I need to make a reservation because its the peak of High Season or is it possible just to go there and arrange accomodation on the arriving day?
Can anyone recommend a good resort?
I went diving for my PADI open water with a company called Captain Caveman on Samui. They do most of their dives in and around Koh Tao. They were pretty solid, I had 1 on 1 for my course and they gave me a discount on the 4 fun dives I made once I got my cert. They are a bit more expensive than some of the other places, but they offer more than enough to make me think I got my $'s worth. Also, they know of some places, dive shops on Koh Tao and can make a recomendation if you'd rather go there. With the sheer amount of dive companies in the area, you likely can walk in and book on the spot, but some offer a discount if you book ahead. Site mail me if you need anymore info.
Thanks it's also good for me. We will go diving also in Koh Tao on 13-16 dec.
