Hi we will be in Koh Tao in roughly two weeks time and wanted to get our PADI divers certification whilst we were there. Can anyone recommend any good companies we might do this with, what should we look for in a package and roughly how much does it cost.

Thanks guys....ur always a great help!

The diving in Koh Tao is only average, isn't worth flying all the way to dive there. But it might be good enough for non-divers who has not dived before.

The Open Water package is about 8500B. I recommend Scuba Juction, it is a medium size company. I don't recommend the big school because the class is always oversized.
