Diving in Ko Tao

I am a beginner diver, comfortable in the water, but I like to dive with attentive dive masters. Does anyone have recommendations on a dive company?

Also I am on a budget, so any good experiences with budget guesthouses, etc would be very helpful.

1. Re: Diving in Ko Tao

i went with Bann's dive resort last september. Its one of the bigger operations on the island. It was OK (good dives, modern equipment, good boats) but, to be honest, i found it a wee bit big and impersonal. Other people on this forum have really raved about it though, so i guess it just depends what you're after. I think that it depends what time of year you're going but we were in quite large groups and i'd probably have prefered something a little more intimate.

You're spoilt for choice on ko tao though- theres LOADS of dive companies. Have fun x
