Hi!

I'm planning to visit Khao Lak next Feb.

I've seen some nice pictures of some of the diving spots around Khao Lak.
Too bad, I don't have any diving license.

I'm just wondering would I be able to get a diving lesson on the spot. If yes, how much would it cost?

There are lots of dive centers for lessons there check around for the best price. Much cheaper than the US. Sometimes the price depends on how many people in a class. You can also do a shallow dive without a license. They give you a crash course in the morning and 1 dive in the afternoon. For a license it takes around 2 to 3 days. You have to watch video, take a test, out of water instruction, another video, another test, in water lessons and 1 more test then dive.

Dive around the Similan and Surin Islands from khao Lak, excellent.
