You can head down to Koh Chang island, 40 minute flight then boat or about 5 hours by bus south east from Bangkok. That would be my suggestion, or, head south by train or bus to Chumphon and take the boat to Koh Tao with is famous for snorkeling and scuba diving, lots of cheap places to stay and some more expensive places too. So I think Koh Chang or Koh tao, but Koh tao is more popular for diving. There is also a bus and jet-cat combo from Bangkok to Koh tao with Lomprayah.

No, your nearest would be along the coast past Pattaya, they do some dive trips from Pattaya itself, that's about 1 hr 30 by road or perhaps 2 hrs on the bus from bangkok, you then would go from pattaya to some offshore places, not ideal though but something.
