Hey, I am due to be in Koh Tao in a week or two and have heard that the whole experience is dependent on which operator and instructor you go with. Has anybody who has done this have any recommendations or warnings as to who to go with and who to avoid? Also shoul I book ASAP or is it easy enough to book on the spot when I get there. Finally I am travelling with my partner who doesnt intend on doing the course(slight water phobia). I've heard that some of the courses include accomodation so would that extend to double rooms which could accomodate both of us or would he need to find an alternative place to stay?
Thanks in advance.
